First of all, I would like to express my gratitude towards SBC for accepting my industrial training application. I was accepted to undergo my training for 3 months. I've just entered my second month of training and it had already been a great pleasure.

I was attached to Analytical Chemistry Laboratory. But during my training, I was not the only one assigned there. Since the first week, I was already taught about the cycle of the process. From plant preparation, extraction and analysis while assigned in various laboratories.

The reason why I enjoyed it all so much was because of the hands-on experience that I get. The theories I've been learning all this while was applied accordingly together with new advices and new techniques that were taught to me by the staff.

Thus, not to mention the amazingly friendly and helpful staffs in SBC. They have been such great mentors and stands as great role-models.

My training experience here will for sure helps me adapt in the real work situation in the future. I also feel encouraged to be a part of a biodiversity community.

Hi. I’m Kathleen Gupie, a final year student and currently taking up Diploma in Industrial Chemistry from UiTM Kampus Samarahan 2. It is a great opportunity to be an internship student here in SBC and I will be doing my internship for 3 months.

Even though I’ve been here for only 5 weeks, there was a lot of experiences that I gained and I also learned new thing especially from Analytical Chemistry Lab, Extraction Lab and Preparation Lab.

I am a third-year student of Bachelor of Bioindustrial Science in University Putra Malaysia Campus Bintulu Sarawak. I would like to thank SBC for giving me the opportunity to conduct my industrial training at its centre. I was assigned to Traditional Knowledge Documentary (TK). I had learned the method of stitching the herbarium specimen which was collected from the community in Sarawak. The herbarium specimen is for future reference and keeping. Besides, I also attached to plant tissue culture laboratory and learned the procedure to do the tissue culture.

I also got the chance to go field trip with Traditional Knowledge Documentary (TK) as my industrial training period are 22 weeks in SBC. The field trip is to give awareness to the community in the rural area about the value of the biodiversity in the forest around their village.

Bachelor of Science with Honours in Resource Biotechnology,
Universiti Malaysia Sarawak

I was a second year student of Bachelor of Science with Honours in Resource Biotechnology from Universiti Malaysia Sarawak when I applied to be an intern for 10 weeks in Sarawak Biodiversity Centre. I was assigned to Microbiology Laboratory under Fungi section.

I had always been fascinated by microorganisms. It’s amazing how such organisms are able to evolve so rapidly. SBC has given me the opportunity to uncover more about microorganisms such as fungi and actinomyces through processes such as seeding, fermentation, extraction etc. SBC has inspired me even more in my passion to pursue researching microorganisms and their abilities to improve the community.

Annie PassportTime flies. I can’t believe that three months of my industrial training at Sarawak Biodiversity Centre (SBC) had finished so fast. These three months are like a sweet dream, dream that I am longing for since I am young. Thanks SBC for helping me to have one step closer to that dream.
