Making a Difference with Innovative Technology

“Innovation is a change that unlocks a new value” – Jamie Notter

We are pleased to share that 4 student teams from APU attained awards at the Invention & Innovation Competition for Private Institutions of Higher Learning (PERINTIS) that was held at Universiti Tenaga National (UNITEN) recently. The exhibition cum competition that saw participation from over 200 education institutes was co-organized by the Ministry of Science, Technology & Innovation (MOSTI) and supported by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE).

At the competition, our students prepared poster presentations of their innovative technologies that address the theme, “Better Brighter for Sustainable Future”. Under the mentorship of Vinothini Kasinathan, Aida Zamnah and Dr Maythem Kamal Abbas Al-Adili, our students performed excellently at the poster presentation session. Each team walked away with an award, as listed below:
