ISDEV lecturers passionately listening to Mohd Syahmir's final PhD thesis.
Alhamdulillah, praise is indeed to Allah SWT for His blessings, as the mock viva of Mohd Syahmir Alias ended with an outstanding positive feedback from ISDEV lecturers. 'Bear the fruits of his Labour" is perhaps the best idiom to describe RISDEV (ISDEV by Postgraduate) student, Mohd Syahmir, eagerness to succeed and complete his PhD thesis within a short time frame of a mere two years and one month. Not to mention, he is only 26 years old and dreams of getting the title 'Dr.' as soon as possible. His main supervisor is Dr. Mohd Shukri Hanapi while his co-supervisor is Dr. Shahir Akram Hassan.

As expected when we solely depend on Allah SWT, He will guide and lead us to success. Mohd Syahmir once again remake the history of ISDEV achievement when he was awarded with a scale of 1. His PhD thesis is about "Bebas Nilai Dalam Penyelidikan Saintifik: Kajian dari Perspektif Perkaedahan Penyelidikan Berteraskan Islam" (Value Free in Scientific Research from the Islamic-based Research Methods Perspectives).

Mohd Syahmir is a RISDEV student who is actively involved in ISDEV activities. Besides struggling to complete his PhD thesis well ahead of time, he is also an author of "Ibn Al-Haytham Pelopor Konsep Penyelidikan Saintifik". Today, he already has 2 chapters in a book, 7 published articles in various journals, 9 articles in popular media, as well as 16 paper presentations.
Thanks to the Board of Examiners, Prof Dato' Dr. Mohd Mokhtar Saidin (Chairman - seated 2nd from right),
