Welcome to nric 2009


The National Research and Innovation Competition 2008 has already been organized successfully by the Student Representative Council of Universiti Sains Malaysia (MPPUSM) in the previous 2007/2008 academic session. For the present 2008/2009 session, the Student Representative Council will continue organizing this project as an annual event. Besides giving recognition to the best final year project by final year undergraduate students from IPTA and IPTS, this project is also seen as a way for the Student Representative Council to create and consolidate the networking among universities.

This third year competition will continue to focus on the main objective which is to provide valuable input for students on the importance of research and innovation for the nation’s development of human capital. It encourages students to compete among themselves and thus, put their best effort for their research project. Through a program like this, new discoveries can be found especially in the field of Science and Technology as well as literature and art in general. Besides becoming the platform for the young scientists to meet and share their opinions and experiences, this program also manures student’s interest in taking part in research and innovation activities.
