SERDANG, 24 Nov  – Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) Vice Chancellor, YH. Dato’ Prof. Dr. Mohd Roslan Sulaiman received the handover of the Mini Moke Austin Morris car from the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Prof. Ir. Dr. Mohd Khairol Anuar Mohd Ariffin, witnessed by the University Management Committee (JPU) and the Management Committee of the Faculty of Engineering.

Dato’ Prof. Dr. Mohd Roslan Sulaiman said the Mini Moke Austin Morris car registered in 1973 has its own historical value as it was used by the Farm Director to patrol the farm area and UPM parameters.

"Through this restoration, it will be harnessed and exhibited to the current generation of UPM students as well as a memory to the previous UPM alumni," he said.

The project in collaboration with UPM alumni proves that the collaboration between the university and alumni is continuous. For the Protect Master Coach (PMC) Chief Executive Officer, Mohd Fahmi Mad Ali, this collaboration is a process of exchanging knowledge and expertise from industry to students.

“A collaboration like this will expose students to the real situation in the working world. This knowledge transfer is part of our efforts from the industry to give students a glimpse of the career world. It is hoped that in the future there will be more collaborations like this from the expertise with students,” he said.   

The restoration project led by the Dean of Faculty of Engineering Prof. Ir. Dr. Mohd Khairol Anuar Mohd Ariffi, assisted by his Deputy Dean (Research and Innovation) Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mohd Khair Hassan and lecturer of the Department of Mechanical and Manifacturing Engineering Assoc. Prof. Dr. Eris Eliandy Supeni begin in March 2022 and it took seven months to complete.

“Mini Moke Austin Morris car is vintage, as well as many components, need to be manually fabricated and the need for a thorough in search for spare parts causes the evaluation to take time. The process done in phases gives a lot of exposure to the students and is very beneficial for them,” he said.
