Bachelor of Science with Honours in Resource Biotechnology,
Universiti Malaysia Sarawak
I was a second year student of Bachelor of Science with Honours in Resource Biotechnology from Universiti Malaysia Sarawak when I applied to be an intern for 10 weeks in Sarawak Biodiversity Centre. I was assigned to Microbiology Laboratory under Fungi section.
I had always been fascinated by microorganisms. It’s amazing how such organisms are able to evolve so rapidly. SBC has given me the opportunity to uncover more about microorganisms such as fungi and actinomyces through processes such as seeding, fermentation, extraction etc. SBC has inspired me even more in my passion to pursue researching microorganisms and their abilities to improve the community.
Time flies. I can’t believe that three months of my industrial training at Sarawak Biodiversity Centre (SBC) had finished so fast. These three months are like a sweet dream, dream that I am longing for since I am young. Thanks SBC for helping me to have one step closer to that dream.
I can’t tell how excited I am when I was accepted to do my industrial training here at Sarawak Biodiversity Centre. I would like to express my highest gratitude to SBC for giving me the opportunity of doing my industrial training here. It has been the sweetest three months of my life. I was currently taking Resource Chemistry for bachelor degree in UNIMAS, and I can say that SBC is the best platform to apply your skills and learn something that is entirely new in your life.
It has been such a great experience throughout my Industrial training here at Sarawak Biodiversity Centre (SBC). When comes to meet many super-friendly and easy going people around SBC make me feel more welcome and comfortable in this working place. I am really grateful for having this opportunity of being part of them and together help the Earth keeping the biodiversity for a better tomorrow as mention in their tagline.
Choosing a right industrial training company to attend was a very difficult decision to make. Yet what made me select Sarawak Biodiversity Centre over other institutions is mainly their focus on the discoveries of biological resources that would bring to the development of pharmaceutical drugs, nutraceutical and also herbal therapies. As a Resource Biotechnology student at the UNIMAS, I was delighted to be selected as one of the SBC’s industrial trainee.
