27-06-2019 - 27-08-2019
T o create awareness among young students on the contribution of engineering and technology towards an inclusive and prosperous community, the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) and Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TAR UC) jointly organise the first ‘IEM-TAR UC 1-Minute Engineering and T echnology Video Competition’.
Themed “Empowering Communities through Engineering”, this competition aims to raise students’ interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) related studies through tech-savvy and innovative approaches. This event is one of the many initiatives of IEM and TAR UC in promoting awareness among younger generations on the importance of engineering and technology related skills and knowledge in this digital era. Engineers bridge the gap between society and scientific knowledge by designing and creating new things for sustainable living of human being. Through their innovations and problem-solving skills, they contribute to the nation’s technological advancement that subsequently facilitates the growth of our economy. Today, engineering and technology play an even more essential role as our government is progressively moving towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The adoption of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, autonomous robots and Internet of Things (IoT) greatly impact our industries.
The competition is free and open to all secondary school students in Malaysia. The video competition is categorised into upper secondary and lower secondary.
Students interested to participate can register as a team of three to four persons. Each team is expected to shoot a 1- minute video with contents relevant to engineering and technology using either Malay or English language or combination of both. For students who are not well- versed in video shooting, a free video shooting and editing workshop will be held on 26 July 2019 at TAR UC Kuala Lumpur Main Campus, Setapak to guide and prepare the participants with basic shooting and video editing skills. Registration to the workshop is on first- come-first-serve basis due to limited places available.
