OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE R&D BUILDING UTP opens new R&D Building in conjunction with its 20th Anniversary Celebration (10 January 2017) U niversiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) celebrated the opening of its new research and development (R&D) building at its campus. The opening of the building was officiated by Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh and is in conjunction with UTP's 20th anniversary celebration. Designed to be in compliance with the Green Building Index Certification, this building is located within the Oil and Gas Cluster of UTP's new R&D Park and will be occupied by two UTP Institutes, namely, Institute of Contaminant Management for Oil and Gas, and Institute of Hydrocarbon Recovery for Enhanced Oil Recovery. The R&D building, four-storey high with a total floor area of 21,225 square metres is home to 65 laboratories and offices and can accommodate up to 550 researchers and staff at any one time. With the investment of almost RM100 million, the two-block R&D building is intended to further catalyse and encourage interactions between UTP and the industries. The area in between the two buildings that is covered by an overhanging roof is also a designated research space which has been designed to accept large research facilities such as pilot plants and flow loops to provide opportunity for pilot-scale testing and large-scale prototyping for the industries. This is in-line with the objective of establishing the UTP R&D Park, which is to encourage intense industrial collaborations and strategic partnerships with various industries and organisations. 4 UTP RESEARCH NEWSLETTER

T his year UTP is celebrating its 20th anniversary that includes various events to be held throughout the year. Discover UTP is one of the events held on 1-9 April 2017. This UTP open day has attracted more than 25,000 external guests, potential collaborators, parents, universities, school children and many more from the surrounding communities. As a science and technology university, naturally science-based activities would be included. This was in the form of experiential learning whereby visitors could immerse themselves in little stints of laboratory experiments. While being fun and interesting, it was an excellent way to nurture interest in science in the young, simultaneously planting the seeds of creativity and innovation in them. The academics and researchers of the university also had the opportunity to showcase their research activities and innovations to industry in the Innovation Competition. This competition exposed academia, industries and communities on the end stage research support and facilitation to translate the research into practical output ready to be market by industry. There was also the UTP-Industry Seminar and Exhibition held to expose and encourage research and innovation culture among industries, universities, government agencies and society in Malaysia’s northern region generally and in Perak specifically. The seminar and exhibition also helps to create awareness on Translational Research in impacting the Quadruple Helix which is Government, Industry, Community and Academia. On 5 April 2017, history was made in The Malaysia Book of Records when 52 UTP students from various disciplines were involved in the making of “The Longest Great Ball Contraption Machine”.
