Faculty of Computer and Mathematical Sciences (FSKM), Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) is hosting a fifteen-week Hybrid Synchronous lectures series aimed at students and lecturers interested in the area of Groups and Algebras scheduled from February 25 – June 1 2021. Topics covered include algebraic structures, groups, rings, polynomials and number theory, vector space, and algebra.

The move to online and hybrid teaching and learning environment offers faculties and students from all participating universities an opportunity to collaborate, experiment, analyze, and discuss mathematical problems together.

The lecture series taught by Prof Dr Isamiddin Rakhimov is a hybrid experience for the faculties and students from UiTM, the National University of Uzbekistan (NUUz), and Samarkand State University (SamsU) Uzbekistan.  

FSKM, UiTM hosted the first lecture in one of the Global Learning Spaces on February 25, 2021 (5.00 pm, Malaysian time). It was joined virtually by participants from other local universities and UiTM campuses nationwide.
