He received the International Trade Fair (IENA) award, Nuremberg, Germany in 2013 and also the Habibie Award for his excellent contribution to the development of science in Indonesia in the same year.
“This Quality Research Award, I believe, is for my recent research which received international recognition,” he said.
Prof. Dr. Irwandi expressed appreciation for the award he received from IIUM.
“For me, I need to do my own task as a lecturer and perform better in teaching. In terms of research I have to perform better also to produce more quality research,” he said as he planned for future research.
“So I have to do better for future and this is my target,” he added.
Prof. Dr. Irwandi also gave some thought about what was said by the President and the Rector in their speeches. He agreed with the President on the need to plan ahead to become excellent in future.
He said, “Everyone needs to know this so that one can plan what one should do to achieve the target.”
