CONGRATULATIONS to our student from Computer Information Engineering, Kulliyyah of Engineering, Br Muhammad Fahreza Alghifari who has brought IIUM a victory in the Innovate Malaysia Design Competition 2018: Central Region (KL). This effort is a cross-kulliyah collaboration with Kulliyyah of Information Technology, Br Muhammad Wildan Zulfikar
Innovate Malaysia Design Competition is the largest design competition in Malaysia, open to all third year or final year degree engineering, computer science, IT, and science/mathematics students. The competition is co-organized by several world-renowned companies such as Google, Intel, Keysight, MathWorks, Microsoft, SAS, SilTerra, and SOLIDWORKS.
The IMDC 2018: Central Region, which was held at Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Centre (MaGIC), Cyberjaya on 12-13 May 2018 was attended by over 300 students / 200 teams. Despite the fierce competition, the duo’s project came first in the Google Track Challenge and was judged as the most innovative among the all winning projects. Winning these 2 titles granted them a cash prize of RM500 and Regional Excellence Award.
The pair will compete in the grand final with the other winners from the northern region (Penang), southern region (JB) and East Malaysia (Kuching) on the 9-10th of June 2018. Wish them all the best!
