Congratulations to undergraduate students on Receiving Awards in MJIIT Final Year Project Symposium 2019

MJIIT FINAL YEAR PROJECT SYMPOSIUM 2019 is a showcase for undergraduate research across disciplines to present about their final year project. The Symposium includes poster and presentation sessions by students. The symposium was examined by Industrial and Academic panels with different backgrounds to evaluate students’ project.

There are three categories nominated which are Best Final Year Project, Industrial Revolution 4.0 and Best Manufacturing Project. Congratulations to our TriPreM Undergraduate students, Muhammad Saifulnizam B. Mohd Yunus, and Shukri Nazri on winning the Best Manufacturing Project and also Muhammad Amirul Adha Bin Mohd Khalid on winning Best Final Year Project at MJIIT FINAL YEAR PROJECT SYMPOSIUM 2019. The event was organized by Malaysian – Japan International Institute of Technology (MJIIT), UTM KL sponsored by MSM Metal Industries Sdn Bhd on 16 May 2019. Saifulnizam, Shukri, and Adha presented their project on “Tribological Characterization of Anodic Composite Film Reinforced with Fly Ash Particles”, “ Tribological Characterization for Polyoxymethylene (POM) Reinforced by Oilpalm Empty Fruit Bunch (OPEFB)” and “Multiple Lubricant with Ultrasonic Excitation” respectively.
