Foreword from the Dean of FRST
Thank you for visiting the Faculty of Resource Science and Technology web site. This faculty is one of the two pioneering faculties in UNIMAS established for the university's first student intake in July 1993. The focus of academic and research programmes at the faculty is on areas related to the science, technology, management, and sustainable exploitation of natural resources which is abundant in Malaysia, particularly in Sarawak.
Students can opt to specialise in animal science, plant science, aquatic biology, biotechnology, and chemistry; all of which have wide applications and offer numerous employment opportunities. In research, the faculty has the technological expertise and modern laboratory facilities to conduct various projects related to the management and prudent exploitation of natural resources. This in turn supports various postgraduate programmes (MSc & PhD) especially those which are research-based.
The Faculty's mission is to establish itself as a major centre for research and learning in science and technology associated with natural resources. Our new facilities in the West Campus is aimed at fulfilling this mission and marked a new chapter in our short but eventful history. The "Main Building" and the "Wet Laboratory" house state of the art equipment and laboratories that make us one of the best equipped science-based faculties in the country. We invite you to be part of this exciting environment geared to meet new challenges in teaching-learning, research and inquiry.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any enquiry.
