APU Teams Stand Proudly on the National Engineers Day Stage in Singapore


 
Once again, we stand in pride on the world stage, for our students’ outstanding performances and amazing capability!  
 
In conjunction with the National Engineers Day (NED) of Singapore, the Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES) hosted the 5th installment of the Engineering Innovation Challenge (EIC) with the theme of designing and building a prototype of a portable and sensitive ionizing radiation detector that is capable of detecting background radiation. At the Challenge, we are proud to share that 3 of our teams from the School of Engineering walked away with Merit Prizes, bagging SGD1,000 each as well as a prototype fund of SGD500 per team.
 
The teams were the only Malaysian teams to be in the grand finals and to walk away with awards; their hard work and passion accompanied by the dedication of their mentors contributed to their successes. Kudos to the mentoring lecturers: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Lai Nai Shyan, Dr. Freddy Tan Kheng Suan & Dr. Lau Chee Yong from our School of Engineering for the dedicated effort!
 
Huge Congratulations the teams, comprising:


 
 
Team 1: A Low-Cost IoT Based Background Radiation Monitoring System
Project Advisor: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Lai Nai Shyan
Team Member: Darren Chin Vui Ket & Thea Sze Sien
  
Team 2: Low-Cost and Portable Ionizing Radiation Detector
