Our students from the Bachelor of Electronic Engineering with Honours programme were privileged to have the opportunity to participate in the WED Design Challenge which was launched simultaneously with the World Engineering Day 2023 celebration by Malaysian Research Accelerator for Technology & Innovation (MRANTI). The launch, held on 11 March 2023, was officiated by the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, YB Chang Lih Kang.
As part of their participation in the WED Design Challenge, the students were also involved in an Ideathon design thinking workshop that took place on 12 March 2023 at MRANTI Park in Bukit Jalil. By participating in the design thinking workshop, the students were able to engage in the creative process of developing solutions with a purpose, which helped prepare them for their upcoming submissions.
The Ideathon workshop also served as the starting point for the students’ innovation journey as they prepare to finalize their prototypes for the Grand Finale, which will take place on 8 June 2023.
The students were thrilled, for their involvement in the WED Design Challenge will also provide them with the opportunity to utilize the resources at the MRANTI MakersLab, a prototyping powerhouse.
