Idris said, the knowledge acquired by students is from the tutelage of academicians, and in aspects of Entrepreneurship, they should 'create something new' in view of the currently challenging world.

"A way towards change is by bringing in more industry practitioners to the university, which could lead to an increase in graduate employability because the practitioners would bring in knowledge on what is needed by the industry," he added.
