Unhealthy student-staff ratio

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
They have a lot of students but not a lot of academic staff. They are heading toward the direction of research uni but basically, you would be no time for research. If you like teaching only, UTAR maybe your good choice.

Quiet, Peaceful and Restricted

The work was simple and easy and I learned many things from using various equipment and apparatus as well as exposed to new chemicals, solutions and experiments. The management was bad, considering the funding for the labs seems to come from there, hence the labs were always not fully maintained, apparatus and equipment were all old and over 10 years with no new replacements and chemicals and materials needed for experiments were always kept restraint with very small limited usage. Budget constraints and improper funding placed many students in to a very lousy laboratory experience. Most enjoyable part of the job is the students and friends that help out one another and amazing teamwork to perform and complete tasks given to all of us.

Pros

Quiet and peaceful

Cons

limited lab usage, restraint workplace

Program researcher

Working on my own project, collecting samples from students and sequencing DNA matching with the target virus. Learn how to work with team and also finish my own task. University system is not build up and not quite organized so it's a bit difficult to process the experiment sometimes. After the whole project, present the demostration in front of the lecturers and writing thesis is the hardest part of the job. Working with others is the most enjoyable part of the job. I've learnt a lot from them.

Pros

nice accommodation provided.

Cons

Long hours, sometimes over night in the lab waiting for result
