Associate Prof. Sr. Dr. Fadhlin Abdullah on behalf of the Dean received the Certificate of Accreditation from Mr. Max Crofts, the President of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in the ceremony held at the Hotel Istana, Kuala Lumpur on June 17th, 2010.

During the ceremony, two of the second year students from the department, Miss Nur Farah Farhana Rasid and Mr. Chong Choon Kiat, received the Book Price Award while Miss Tan Fang Fang received the Best Paper Award for the 2nd International Surveying Conference for Undergraduates 2010 held at UTM on March 12th, 2010. Both recognition by the international organization such as RICS would contribute to the process of the internationalization of UTM as a ‘Research University’ and hopefully further enhance the perception of the public towards the programs offered by the department.
