Welcome to RECESS. An acronym of Research Centre for Soft Soils which is a new Research and Development (R & D) initiative by Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM), following the concept of United Kingdom's Soft Soil Test Site situated at Bothkennar, Scotland.

We hope we can be an agent to enhance university-industries linkages through smart partnership programs in order to increase knowledge and skills among fellow researchers and staff. And at the same time to act as a referral center for soft soil research at national and international level.
