Centre for Emerging Tropical Infectious Diseases is headed by Prof Dr Balbir Singh who is a holder of the prestigious Merdeka Award and listed as one of the Top Research Scientist Malaysia (TRSM) by ASM.


In line with the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (Score), having a niche in Green Technology is instrumental to support Sarawak government in strengthening and rationalizing efforts towards all renewable energy technologies.
