IEEE Malaysia Best FYP Results

It is with great pleasure and delight that I announce the winners for the IEEE Malaysia Section Best FYP Award.
To give you some context to the competition. The Best FYP competition is a national level competition for all final year project students, whose final year project fell within the scope of the offered tracks.
This year we offered 13 tracks. Each track is sponsored and evaluated by an IEEE technical chapter in Malaysia, thanks to the respective technical chapters. For a list of track offered this year please click here.
The competition this year saw close to 350 project submissions from IHLs all over Malaysia. This exceeded our expectations by far! This shows that competitions of such nature are of great interest to our community, we will endeavour to ensure that such efforts remain in the year to come.
I apologise for the delay in announcing the results – which is now long over due. Without any further delay below are the list of winners:
