VC's Honorary Doctorate from Stuttgart

Our Vice Chancellor, Dato' Prof. Ir Dr Sahol Hamid Abu Bakar, FASc., will be conferred the Honorary Doctor of Engineering by the University of Stuttgart in Germany.  The ceremony will be held in Stuttgart on 18 November 2011. The conferment will thus make our Vice Chancellor the first Malay recipient to have been given such honour by Stuttgart, and also the first from Asia. The recognition is the outcome of Dato' Sahol's  immense contributions in civil engineering, particularly in the areas of scientific research, achievements in the field of hydraulic engineering and the management of water resources.

It is hoped that the conferment of such prestigious honour, which has been acquired through recommendations from Stuttgart's Faculty of Civil and Environment Engineering, will pave the way for other members of the academe throughout the country to take Malaysia and the university they represent to greater heights by being forerunners in the frontiers of knowledge of the 21st century.
