|About Fundamental & Applied Science Department|
Fundamental and Applied Sciences Department ( FASD )was established on 1 April 2009, and was formerly known as the Foundation Studies Department (FSD). UTP Management Committee, in its sitting on 2 Feb 2009, agreed to the proposal of upgrading FSD to FASD, Â from providing just pre-university education to a full fledge tertiary faculty. The International External Examiners made recommendations for the establishment of a department dealing with fundamental studies, which was also supported by UTP AAC members, namely Prof Otto CC Lin and Prof. Sung-Kee Chung. They believed that the formation of a department in the area of fundamental studies would certainly assist UTP in accelerating its move towards becoming a research university.
