USM EDUCATION SHOWCASE ’09 marks the closing of the USM 40th Anniversary Celebration as well as apart of the Postgraduate Month Celebration. It is held at the Impiana KLCC Hotel & Spa, Kuala Lumpur on 5 and 6 December 2009. The theme of this USM EDUCATION SHOWCASE is experiencing the USM life. It welcomes visitors to taste the total experience of students, as an undergraduate, as a postgraduate, and eventually as an alumni.
While displaying the quality academic and research experience that USM can offer, which include the excellent academicians, programmes, research facilities, studios, and workshops, this Showcase also introduces the casual, the real and the total USM experience. It presents student activities, co-curriculums, sports and the campus environment, which we believe contribute equally towards the development of good quality graduates.
In many cases, these informal experience, leave lasting and memorable experience in one’s campus life. It portrays a University in a garden, already synonym with USM, and many of our sustainable initiatives, to reflect not only a challenging university life, but also enjoyable and colourful one.
