UNITEN Journey of Knowledge Promotes Experiential Learning

On 19-21 April 2014, a group of 34 students and 6 lecturers from UNITEN participated in a trip called Journey of Knowledge. The participants visited Rumah Barkat Anak Yatim, Bukit Chagar, Johor Bahru, National University of Singapore (NUS), Sekolah Tun Fatimah (STF) ,and Universiti Tekologi Malaysia (UTM). This event was jointly organized by Foundation Club and other clubs under College of Foundation and General Studies (CFGS).

            The main objective of the trip is to share the knowledge among the universities visited. In the hunger of knowledge, the participants did not forget the children who are in need. They donated stationeries and food to Rumah Anak Yatim Barkat, Bukit Chagar, Johor Bahru.

            Visits to NUS and UTM gave a really valuable knowledge to the participants. Knowledge sharing session held in both universities opened up participants' mind about engineering and information technology. The group also visited Sekolah Tun Fatimah, one of the best schools in Malaysia to expose an exciting campus experience to the students.

            The experience through the journey of knowledge increased awareness in students that it was very important to learn from others especially from the high-ranked university and contribute back to society through corporate social responsibility programmes.

            The programme director, Ammar Amjad Abdul Wahid said this programme is parallel to the motto of UNITEN, Generates Professional. "I believe that this programme really shows that UNITEN is generating professionals".
