The Treasury Department of Islamic Science of University Malaysia (USIM), formerly known as the Treasury Department of Malaysia Islamic University College (KUIM), was formed in line with the establishment of KUIM at the end of 1999.
The Senior Deputy Treasurer of the National University of Malaysia (UKM), Madam Hajah Rohani Abu, was appointed as the first Treasurer of KUIM and reported for duty on 3 January 2000. At that time, the Treasury Department of KUIM was operating from the Faculty of Islamic Studies UKM with two staff members consisting of the Treasurer and an Assistant Accountant. KUIM agreed to appoint Bank Islam Malaysia Berhad as its official bank, and KUIM’s first account was opened in May 2000.
