Islam emphasizes the sustainability and sustainability of the earth that forbids humanity to destroy nature as Allah S.W.T says:
ظَهَرَ ٱلۡفَسَادُ فِي ٱلۡبَرِّ وَٱلۡبَحۡرِ بِمَا كَسَبَتۡ أَيۡدِي ٱلنَّاسِ لِيُذِيقَهُم بَعۡضَ ٱلَّذِي عَمِلُواْ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَرۡجِعُونَ ٤١
“There have been numerous damage and disaster on land and in the sea for what has been done by human hands, that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done, so that they may return”. (Surah al-Rum: 41)
To achieve the goals planned and expand the scope of its studies, USIM is committed to establish Faculty of Engineering and Build Environment that can help towards developing practical engineering sciences and Islamic architecture that can benefit the society, the nation and the people.
FKAB was established and officially operated at USIM on 4 January 2016. The establishment of the FKAB is in line with the aspiration of the National Higher Education Action Plan and the second USIM Primary Outreach (KRA) program that is to offer recognized programs not only in the country but also internationally.
FKAB is committed to produce ethical professional engineers and architects based on Al-Qawiy and Al-Amin characters. The nature of Al-Qawiy is owned by the Prophets who have specialized skills in engineering and architecture. For example, Prophet Adam, an agricultural expert and founder of human civilization; Prophet Noah, shipbuilding; Prophet Harun, a communication expert; Prophet David, an iron industry expert; Prophet Yusuf, economic and administration; Prophet Solomon, King, architecture and administration and Prophet Isa, medicine. The nature of Al-Amin also produces professionals who possess the traits of Sidiq, Amanah, Tabligh and Fatonah.
