About University of Malaysia Sarawak

University of Malaysia Sarawak/Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) was officially incorporated on 24 December 1992. UNIMAS was Malayia's eighth university and the first public university of Sarawak. It started off with two faculties and had 118 students enrolled on 8 August 1993. The next year, UNIMAS added four more faculties and began to grow. This was also because UNIMAS started offering postgraduate programmes. As of 2013, the university has a total enrolment of more than 16,000 students. 

Today, UNIMAS's strength lays down in at least three niche areas of research:

  • Biotechnological research (agriculture)
  • ICT (rural communication and image analysis)
  • Biodiversity (natural resource)

The Ministry of Science granted the Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) Science Fund to UNIMAS due to 44 research projects done. The amount of this fund was RM7.59 million. Another 81 projects done by UNIMAS under the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE), furthermore granted RM2.88 million.
