    The Faculty hosted eminent Professor Selamat

    On October 2, 2014 the Faculty of Informatics and Management UHK was honoured to host an important guest, professor Ali Selamat from University Teknologi Malaysia, which is now the top university in the city of Johor Bahru.

    Professor Selamat is the Dean of Research Alliance at UTM, which is made up of about 500 researchers. In the QS university ranking UTM places 296, an improvement of 60 places in one year. Therefore, it was highly beneficial for the representatives of UHK and FIM UHK to attend a lecture on the working principles and methodology used by UTM to encourage further growth in the area of scientific research.
    The subsequent debate showed that both institutions – UTM and UHK – have to face similar problems, and thus may benefit from inspiring each other. 
     
    Besides this session, professor Selamat also gave two lectures for our students and academic staff. Our students later proved their quality by addressing professor Selamat with questions related to the science topics presented by him. He had deliberately chosen topics which are currently being dealt with by his team, and which are currently under review in prestigious journals with high impact factors (Q1 and Q2 in JCR Thomson).
     
    A lunch with the rector of UHK professor Hynek then provided an opportunity to discuss the idea of possible further cooperation between UHK and UTM.
