Ku Nurasyiqin binti Ku Amir

Student

“I am a postgraduate student at Universiti Utara Malaysia in Strategic Studies. Early last year I graduated from Universiti Teknologi Petronas in Chemical Engineering (specializing in Environment). I am aiming to continue my studies in Environmental Security and becoming an expert in the field within 10-15 years. At the same time, i also coordinated a monthly book circle for women in Perlis.
My passion converges into a number of fields including international relations, education and environment.
I believe that STEM education is highly essential in building sustainable human capital to develop the nation. STEM education in Malaysia has been widely embraced by the parents, but recent statistics showed that there has been a decline in enrollment among Malaysian students. It is very crucial that STEM subjects are learned as a mastery for the students in developing their curiosity and interests, not only focusing on exam.”
