With the blessings of this New Year 2015, ISDEV received good news both involving ISDEV academicians as well as ISDEV support staff.
A thankful yet still much humbled ISDEV Director, Professor Muhammad Syukri Salleh.
One of the four ISDEV lecturers who received the confirmation on the promotion.

In line with ISDEV elevated stature as a Research Centre of Excellence (CoE), it is truly befitting indeed that towards the close of 2014, five ISDEV lecturers were given the confirmation of their official promotions. First is Professor Dr. Muhammad Syukri Salleh who is upgraded from a Grade B Professor to a Grade A Professor. The other four are Dr. Mohd. Shukri Hanapi and three newly appointed ISDEV lecturers Dr. Mohd. Syakir Mohd. Rosdi, Dr. Syahir Akram Hassan Al-Hafiz and Dr. Wan Norhaniza Wan Hasan who are all now holding permanent posts as Senior Lecturers at ISDEV. In addition, each of them also received the great good news of their promotion from Grade DS 45 to a DS 51 officer.

In addition to receiving this good news on ISDEV lecturers, ISDEV has now an additional two support staff. Encik Kamarudin Mohamed Ismail Merican who had previously served at the School of Communications, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) is now ISDEV Senior Assistant Registrar with effect from 5 January 2015 while Encik Mohamed Ibrahim Mohamed Shariff who had previously worked with the School of Mathematical Sciences, USM serves as ISDEV General Office Assistant.

With the upgrade and promotion of ISDEV lecturers as well as the expansion of ISDEV workforce with the coming of the two new ISDEV support staff, ISDEV is believed to not only be able to continue its excellent work and academic records but also move ISDEV further towards a more rapid progress, in sha Allah.
