The Office of Deputy Dean Student Affairs, Faculty of Built Environment was established on 1st January 2022. The main aim of our office is to extend services related to student welfare, discipline, mobility, employability and talent development, which includes student development and entrepreneurship.
As such, we will work closely with student representatives and societies to ensure that our graduates will acquire the key skills and knowledge required to practice as professionals in the built environment industry during their study at the university
Mobility programmes offer an opportunity for students to participate in specially developed activities and initiatives in other universities outside Malaysia. From anime to coffee planting and leadership to volunteering, you can explore any new activity or skill that you may be interested in. Go to GEM UM link for more information on both short or long term outbound opportunities.
After graduation, those who want to upgrade their knowledge and skills can join our upskilling programmes (priority to unemployed graduates).
Still unemployed after graduation? There are employment opportunities that we share from time to time.
Finally, graduates must indicate their employment status with MOHE’s SKPG, which is open around convocation time. Subsequently, you can update your employment status in SKPG 2.0 as necessary. For instance, at convocation time you may still be “Undergoing upskilling programmes” but you may receive a job offer in November. Upon accepting the job offer, you may upgrade your status to “Employed” in SKPG 2.0.
