SERDANG, October 19 – The Credited Co-Curriculum Courses (KKB) offered by the Co-Curriculum and Student Development Centre (PKPP), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), develop and strengthen students’ character through the cultivation of soft skill elements.

UPM Vice-Chancellor, YH. Dato’ Prof. Dr. Mohd Roslan Sulaiman, said the student character-building activities carried out by PKPP are in line with Goal One, UPM Strategic Plan 2021 – 2025, which is to Produce Resilient Graduates to Face Future Challenges.

" In general, the 129 KKB courses offered by PKPP in Semester 1, 2022/2023 Session, inculcate various soft skills such as leadership, critical thinking, teamwork and others.

"The active participation of UPM students in KKB will help enhance their soft skills while getting ready to compete with future graduates out there,” he said.

He added that the programme would also produce graduates who are balanced in academic and co-curricular achievements in addition to driving the University’s excellence as it moves towards al-Falah.

Meanwhile, first-semester Bachelor of Animal Science student, Diana Yii Cheau Ling, said her participation in the Bakti Siswa co-curricular programme had given her the exposure to help the needy community.

"Bakti Siswa educates me to be ready to volunteer and offer help, including helping the flood victims,” she said when met at the UPM Co-Curriculum Day, Semester 1,  2022/2023 Session. - UPM
