Double Win at ITEX 2015

We are proud to share that our students from the Faculty of Computing, Engineering & Technology (FCET) successfully bagged the Gold and Bronze medals at the 26th International Invention, Innovation and Technology Exhibition (ITEX) 2015, which was held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) on Thursday, 21 May 2015 and Friday, 22 May 2015.

The ITEX is an annual effort by the Malaysian Invention & Design Society (MINDS) to provide an international platform for local and international inventors and research scientist to present their inventions and innovations to a business community, who is keen on commercializing unique inventions. APU students possess a track record of success at the ITEX, as our students also won several medals at ITEX 2013 and ITEX 2014.

This year, Reza Najafzadeh, student of FCET, brought pride to APU, together with his mentors, Seyed Amir Hossein and Prof Dr Ir Vinesh Thiruchelvam. He achieved the Gold medal with his innovative proposed system, ‘Green University Management System (GUM)’. On the other hand, Kudzai Nigel Chitewe, Haw Wai Kit, Huang Jiann Jer and Halima Muhammed also achieved the Bronze medal, by proposing the ‘Building and Energy Control System’, under the guidance of their mentor, Pang Jia Yew from the School of Engineering.

Congratulations and thumbs up to the students and their mentors for this outstanding achievement!
