The Centre for Advanced Studies in Islam, Science and Civilization (CASIS) is a centre of learning excellence in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Kuala Lumpur. It was established with the aim of promoting postgraduate studies and continuous learning in the areas of knowledge related to Islam, science and civilization, with a special focus on the worldview of Islam. CASIS is also cognizant of the importance and relevance of other civilizations. Training young intellectuals to rise to the challenges of modern scientific thoughts, technology and social science research is a paramount objective of CASIS. These intellectuals must develop their full capacity in accessing the treasure troves of Islamic thoughts in order to steer the civilizational progress of their local communities as well as the global population.
The Assembly of Muslim Intellectuals (Himpunan Keilmuan Muslim (HAKIM)) began in 2002 as a monthly study circle among young Muslim intellectuals who are not only thirsty for Islamic knowledge, but are serious about resurrecting the knowledge culture from the Islamic tradition. Consequently, HAKIM was registered as an official organization on January 6th, 2010. Since January 2011, HAKIM has been offering the Worldview of Islam Series (WISE) an intensive tri-semester course in the Malay Language. The success of this program sparks the idea for an English Language version. Seminars, colloquium, weekly reading session, classes and discussion groups are amongst HAKIM other intellectual fares.
