Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) Student Representative Council session 2020/2021 in collaboration with Alumni Relations Centre (ARCUPM), Students Affairs Division (BHEP) and Malaysian Agro Entrepreneurial Club for University Students (Myagrosis) have pioneered the Agro Alumni Industry Mentoring and Coaching (AIMAC).  

The AIMAC project runs for one year from 19 October 2020 to 18 October 2021 and is a phased project implemented at Rumah Teduhan Faculty of Agriculture, Agrotek, University Agricultural Park, UPM. This project offers opportunity and exposure pertaining basic “agropreneur” to 10 UPM students in asnaf and B40 categories, under the supervision of UPM alumni Ahmad Nazri Abdullah Zawawi (alumni class 2000, 2015). AIMAC also conducted a long-term agricultural training session with the application of agricultural innovation such as the use of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) so that students can practice the implementation of agricultural crops using this method as their livelihood. This is in line with the project’s aspiration to produce competitive and competent agropreneur capable to keep pace with the changing tides of the modern country 2030.

 

AIMAC project aims the impact of its implementation which includes the aspect of providing student marketability, producing agropreneur among students and UPM students’ success in the asnaf and B40 categories for these groups to be exposed to the agropreneur career which will be beneficial when they graduate. Consequently, more agropreneur among UPM students can be produced which will boost UPM visibility as an institution in agricultural knowledge transfer to students, society and the nation.
