Research discovers, elucidates and evaluates new knowledge, ideas, and the technologies essential in driving our academic staff to deliver outstanding student education and training based on relevant and modern curricula. In line with Malaysia’s national policy of promoting R & D in universities, CERI was launched in 2017 to promote, complement and provide support and services to staff and research students for the discovery, dissemination, preservation, and advancement of knowledge through research and innovation to address societal needs.
