PROF. DATO’ SRI DR SYED ARABI SYED ABDULLAH IDID won an individual award HIGH CITATION IN INDEXED JOURNAL AWARD GOLD & GLOBAL PROMINENCE AWARD GOLD won by Department (Communication) but he was leading it – WAPOR International Conference last year.

Congratulations Honorary Secretary of IPRM Tuan Haji Aznan Mat Piah for his achievement recently.


When I joined the university in early 2008 after my retirement from government services, I never aspire for higher achievement other than, out of my passion, to contribute back in a small way to the society and the country.

My hope was that I be given the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with the students so I can play the role as an educator to produce graduates who are resilient, competent and embedded with wisdom and maturity to face the many challenges in real life situation.

Today, I am humbled and honoured by the recognition I received at TAKREEM 2021. I owe this award to the inspiration and motivation not only from my senior professors and academic and professional colleagues, but also from the students of various batches that I have taught at the university including international students. Not forgetting the support I received from my other half and kids who have been very supportive of my role as an educator.

They were the strength and drive behind my motivation.

Alhamdulillah, feeling blessed ❤
