Congratulation to Winners of 2020 IEEE Malaysia FYP Competition

A letter from the Chairman of IEEE Malaysia Section

Dear IEEE Members,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the results of the 2020 IEEE Malaysia FYP Competition.

In this installation of the competition we offered 16 technical tracks sponsored by our technical chapters. We received and evaluated 250 student project submissions this year. 

I would like to thank the IEEE Malaysia Student Activities Committee (SAC) led by Dr Alpha Agape for coordinating this competition. Without the support from all the evaluators from each chapter, who spent the time to review and evaluate all the submissions, this would not have happened. I humbly thank each and every one from the chapters and section for their contribution in this year’s competition.

It is with great pleasure that I announce the following 41 winners from the 16 tracks. There are three winners each for 13 tracks, one winner for two of the tracks and no winner for the GRS track due to limited number of submissions.

Congratulations to all the student winners and their respective supervisors 👏👏👏 The SAC team will be in touch with the award winners to arrange for the certificates and plaques.
