Campus Sustainability Final Year Project (FYP) @ Universiti Malaya 2023/2024
Theme: Just Net-Zero and SDGs

Welcome to the inaugural signature program: Campus Sustainability Final Year Project (FYP) at Universiti Malaya, where innovation meets sustainability! Embark on a journey with us as we delve into the theme of "Just Net-Zero and SDGs" – a powerful initiative that blends the pursuit of carbon neutrality with a commitment to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Project Overview:
Our FYP aims to redefine sustainability on campus by integrating the principles of justice, net-zero emissions, and the SDGs. At the heart of our endeavor is the belief that a sustainable campus should not only minimize its environmental impact but also contribute to social equity and economic progress.

Theme Highlights: Just Net-Zero & SDGs
Striving for net-zero emissions is at the core of our project. We are committed to adopting eco-friendly practices, renewable energy sources, and carbon offset strategies to achieve a harmonious balance between campus activities and environmental conservation. The "just" element emphasizes fair distribution of benefits and burdens, ensuring that no community is left behind in the journey towards sustainability.


Our selected FYPs are intricately woven into the fabric of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by are aligning our efforts with the broader global agenda for a more sustainable and equitable world.

Key Objectives:

  • To support Final Year Undergraduate Projects (FYPs) that can address campus sustainability issues at Universiti Malaya, in line with the UM Sustainability Policy, UM EcoCampus Blueprint and the university's Carbon Neutral Vision.

  • To train students in conducting responsible, action-oriented research and to be proactively involved in solving real world sustainability challenges.

  • To empower the role of students to accelerate UM’s transition towards a sustainable and just net-zero campus.

Join Us on the Journey:
We invite students, faculty, and stakeholders to join us on this transformative journey towards a "Just Net-Zero" campus that stands as a beacon of sustainability and social responsibility. Together, let's forge a path that not only mitigates our impact on the environment but also contributes meaningfully to a more just and equitable world.

As we embark on this final year project, we look forward to pioneering sustainable solutions that will leave an enduring impact on Universiti Malaya and set new standards for campuses worldwide. Let's build a future where sustainability is not just a goal but a way of life!
Application is opened from October 2023, closed on 4 November 2023

Heartiest Congratulations and Best Wishes to all
