SERDANG, 26 Sept - This interview took place in the Menara Warisan Budi Room of the UPM Alumni Relations Center (ARCUPM) starting at 10.00 am and ending around 12.00 noon. This interview was conducted in order to acquire and complete the writing materials for the publication of the "Coffee Table Book."
The publishing of this "Coffee Table Book" would like to coincide with the launch of the clock tower. As a result, this book will be released around April-May 2024, following the completion of the Menara Jam, which is predicted in April 2024. One of the themes covered in the book is Menara Warisan Budi. Associate Prof. Dr. Rohani Ibrahim served as the inaugural Director of ARCUPM from 1999 until 2011. When she became Director of ARCUPM, she was involved in the discussion and launch of the Menara Jam plan in 2006, in connection with UPM's 75th anniversary.
With all the memory and physical health given to her, she is eager to come and share her knowledge of Menara Jam. This contribution from the former Director of ARCUPM is very noteworthy because she is one of the people most associated with the Clock Tower Project. She also expressed her viewpoint on the Clock Tower Project. She hopes that the Clock Tower Project will be a success and have a significant impact on UPM and its residents. She is also proud of this project, which has been revived after 16 years, because she is a UPM alumni who has contributed to her alma mater.
ARCUPM would like to thank the contributors, especially the UPM alumni who do not forget the place where they gained knowledge. In line with the slogans "With Knowledge We Serve" and "from alumni to UPM".
