​​​Sustainable Resources Overview & Aspiration
The Sustainable Resources Mission-Oriented Research leverages on the new emerging discipline in the 21st century that is "sustainability" which derives impetus from the concepts of sustainable development and environmental science including the economic and social aspects of the subject matter. A sustainable development can be defined as the development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet their own needs.


The sustainable Resources MOR aims to integrate researchers from various disciplines and promote multi­disciplinary research practices that ensure sustainable research outcomes. The sustainable Resources MOR not only harnesses science and technology research efforts but also focuses on environmentally sustainable human developments. Therefore, The MOR also carries out outreach activities (as part of University Social Responsibility - USR) in the form of action research and researchers from engineering, technological and humanities background are integrated in these activities.

Sustainable Resources MOR aspiration is to be a leading Centre of reference in sustainability science and to:

  • Provide opportunities for the pursuit of knowledge and expertise for the promotion of science for sustainability.
  • Nurture science for sustainability consciousness in communities and society through innovation, research and consultancy.
  • Synergise knowledge in creating an ethical praxis of sustainability science to protect nature and improve the quality of life.
The objective of Sustainable Resources MOR is to provide a platform that is conducive for interactions and integrations of researchers of different disciplines that focus not only on empirical and action researchers but is also responsive to the University's social responsibility activities.
