QIU CONTINUES SUCCESSFUL RUN AT MTE AS 7 INVENTORS WIN MEDALS

Every year, we get hyped when the Malaysia Technology Expo (MTE) comes along because our academics and students get to show the world their incredibly innovative inventions. It’s their time to shine.

As expected, they did us proud once again as all seven of our participants walked away with medals at the MTE 2021’s International Innovation Awards.

It’s the second time that we notched up a 100 per cent medal record, as all nine of our entries won awards at last year’s event. And not to forget, we also won 18 awards at MTE 2019

Our QIU talents, who came from the Faculty of Science and Technology and the Faculty of Pharmacy, had to face stiff competition from nearly 500 entrants. 

As usual, this included universities from Malaysia and beyond—including as far as Taiwan, Thailand, and Iran—government agencies, and innovation networks. 

We’re sure you want to see the list of winners and their winning inventions, so here you go!
