RINTIS is the abbreviation for Research Innovation Towards Integration and Sustainability which was initiated by Assoc. Prof. Hasnul J Saidon in 2004 as an annual final year projects exhibition that features the three design departments in the School of The Arts, USM. The departments involved are Graphic Communication, New Media Design and Technology, and Product Design. RINTIS is the epilog of the understudies' endeavors before graduation, permitting them to feature their creative works for conceivable commercialization. It likewise fills in as a pathway for the students to debut into the industry.
The theme put together this year’s RINTIS is inspired by the word “Jalin” ; it is an act of combinations of different elements into one medium. We solely focus on establishing a relationship between the real world and the virtual world to visualize the aspirations of students who will be developed in the matters of spirituality and education wise in order to help create a better society in the near future.
The concept of “Jalinan” is also imperative in our daily lives because it helps us to understand the ties between the different fields of RINTIS to move forward in unity towards the direction of achieving the goal of understanding the importance of knowledge in our lives.
Hence the Slogan” Entwine (ourself with others that are from different walks of life) . Heals (each other weakness/shadow). Connected (with one another).
