There were 240 students with 15 lecturers from the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering (FKAAS), Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) had undergone a Geomatic Engineering Practice (AKG) program from January 14 to February 16 at Kompleks Sukan Negara Saujana Asahan, Asahan, Melaka. Participants comprise two-year students attending Geomatic Engineering courses on campus. For the record, FKAAS runs this program divided into four sessions with a total of 60 students. The implementation of the program is in line with the requirement of the Institute of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) to enable students to be exposed to the actual situation of a project. According to Program Coordinator AKG, also Head of Department of Infrastructure and Geomatic Engineering, FKAAS, Associate Professor Sr. Dr. Mustaffa Anjang Ahmad.
The Objective of AKG is to provide intensive training on Geomatic Engineering that has been learned before. Additionally, it can provide exposure to fieldwork practices that are typically carried out in civil engineering projects. Upon demands, the SDRC has organized a knowledge transfer program, KidSafe at Sekolah Kebangsaan Asahan. In addition to the transfer of knowledge, students are also conducting sustainable community service activities by organizing the gotong-royong activities to clean Asahan Waterfall and Tun Datuk Seri Utama Dr. Mohd Khalil Yaakob’s Mosque. This program can instill awareness among students that their role is not just around the scope of the lecture but also as a community mobilization agent in the work of volunteerism. From this activity, the students might identify various ways of cleaning a few lakes and transportation safety in UTHM as a continuous project for students.
