Two teams of our students from the School of Engineering successfully achieved the Gold Award and the Bronze Award at the International Conference on Information, System and Convergence Applications (ICISCA), which was held from 24th June (Wednesday) to 27th June (Monday), at the Royale Chulan Hotel, Kuala Lumpur and Everly Hotel, Putrajaya.  

At the conference, a Student Poster Competition was held, in which participating students were required to design a 100cm x 140cm poster based on any work related to the ICISCA 2015. Cleopatra Musa and Syed Abdullah, mentored by Prof Dr Ir Vinesh Thiruchelvam, achieved the Gold Award with their outstanding poster design, and walked away with a cash prize of RM1,000. On the other hand, Lee Chii Jun, mentored by Mr Chandrasekharan Nataraj, attained the Bronze Award and walked away with a cash prize of RM300.
Apart from taking part in the competition, the students also gained valuable eye-opening experiences while attending the conference, as they were exposed to conference paper presentations on several engineering technologies, such as electromagnetic sensing, intelligent systems and control, artificial intelligence, smart sensors and so on.
