USM Granted Apex Status


Congratulations to USM (University of Science Malaysia), where I am currently doing my PhD, for beating all other Malaysian universities and being granted the APEX status.

Apex (Accelerated Programme for Excellence) is an effort by the Malaysian government to drive the selected university to compete with the best universities in the world of education. This includes hundreds of millions and various other support programs.

By giving USM the Apex status, it is projected to break into the world’s top 100 universities ranking in 5 years, and top 50 by 2020.
