ABSTRACT

This article discusses human resource development in Malaysia in the field of science and technology, focusing on the science of astronomy. Parallel with today’s world development, science and technology has a huge impact on society. Moreover, the emergence of Industrial Revolution 4.0 is indeed viewed as very significant in this field. Society assumes that with the emergence of this revolution, opportunities for employment will decline as most jobs would be performed by machines. Hence, this research examines the human resource development issues in science and technology in Malaysia. This research is qualitative in design with a case study approach using document analysis, interview and observation methods. Research results find that there are some issues involving human resource development in the aspects of management and administration. It is hoped that discussions such as this can help government efforts in resolving issues of human resource development in the field of science and technology in Malaysia.
