Work experience at SBC was a valuable time in which I got to really find out what I wanted to go into in the future. I was able to be involved in a job that really piqued my interest.
Throughout my training at SBC, I was attached to the Plant Preparation, Extraction and Analytical Chemistry laboratories. I now know what the basic procedures are for receiving plant collections from the field, to preparing them for extraction in the laboratory.
I am very grateful to the Sarawak Biodiversity Centre (SBC) for giving me the opportunity to conduct my industrial training here. I have gained a lot of new experiences especially through hands-on training with laboratory machines which we do have have a chance to operate in university. These experiences are vital to prepare fresh graduates like me to be competent when we go out to work.
