On 9 September 2015, Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur (IUKL), through its Research Management Centre (RMC), organised its 4th Infrastructure University Innovation and Invention Competition (IUIIC 2015). This one-day event was made more significant with the presence of YBhg. Dato’ Sri Ir. Chong Ket Pen, the Executive Vice Chairman and Managing Director of Protasco Berhad, who officiated the event.
“Research is part and parcel of the role of any Insititute of Higher learning which claims itself to be pursuing knowledge and for its existence” said the Vice-President of IUKL, Prof. Dr. Ideris in his opening speech.
The annual university-wide innovation competition showcased inventions from 63 institutions of higher learning and schools. There were 43 entries for the “University” category and 20 for the “Young Inventor” category.
IUIIC 2015 was initiated by RMC in 2011 to stimulate, inculcate, and harness innovation and invention among academic communities in Malaysia. This is to encourage and inspire inventors from both secondary and tertiary levels. In addition, this event is also to provide students with an opportunity to gain experience and feel the galvanising power of real-world competition and allow them to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams. The slogan ‘Eco-Innovation: Empowering Global Sustainability’ aimed to identify products that can be selected to compete at the national and international levels. Through ‘green’ innovations exhibited in this event, we can advance in the environmental and economic sustainability which will serve as a huge investment stimulus and an environment lifesaver.
For the university category, one of the products from the Faculty of Engineering and Technology Infrastructure (FETI) won a gold medal for their “Transport of Sediment: Local Scale vs Reach Scale Approach” invention. The ‘Best Booth Award’ was won by Booth IHL 8, the Faculty of Architecture and Built Environment. Besides these, IUKL bagged one silver and 14 bronze medals.
