In the last two months, UiTM SISU has approached several potential users in discussing the use of the UiTM SISU facilities. In January, UiTM SISU has been in contact with Dr. Norol Hamiza Zamzuri from the Public-Private Reseach Network (PPRN). Through this connection, several community leaders and small-medium enterprise (SME) owners will be trained in UiTM SISU. Meanwhile in February, similar discussion has been made with another potential user of UiTM SISU from the Faculty of Education. The discussion with Mrs. Roslaili ended up with the identification of 3D training and community work involving the students.
