I have a habit of collecting brochures from education fairs so that I can choose the best university to attend. Foreign universities are good at it but only one Malaysian university stand out, USM. There were pictures and detailed explanation of courses and student life in the campus. I made USM as my top and second choice and I got my first choice granted, applied physics in USM.
When I finished my undergraduate, I look around for any viable postgraduate course. I'm fortunate to be offered a scholarship by USM to pursue a masters degree in physics via research. The postgraduate education instilled a 'search for technical issue' foundation which I value much when I prepare patent applications for inventors.
Thank you USM. Congratulations to my alma matter for being awarded the apex university status.
