Success is always better when it’s shared, and QIU’s budding scientists have joined forces to sweep yet another competition for our university!
Our students put in a stellar show to win all four oral presentation categories at the recent QIU Intervarsity Science Symposium—a testament to our commitment to producing holistic graduates who excel not only in academics but also in competitions.
Winning is never easy, and our students had to overcome competition from nearly 50 other presenters from institutes like Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR), Taylor’s University, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), and the Institute for Research in Molecular Medicine (INFORMM)
Our students also took home two second-place awards and three third-place prizes—which brings the winning total to nine!
Here are the full results:
|Track||Life sciences |
|Nur Hanis Zulkernain|
|1st Runner-Up||Fathima Zahraa|
|Kok Boon Hui|
|Ho Jing You|
|2nd Runner-Up||Maryam Sanaa|
During the course of the two-day event, postgraduate and undergraduate students were given the opportunity to present their research findings through oral presentations that were judged by a panel of seasoned researchers. Three winners were then selected from each track—evaluated by a list of comprehensive criteria.
QISS 2022 attracted more than 130 researchers from local and international universities to share and discuss fascinating ideas and advancements in the fields of science and technology.
Officiated by QIU Vice-Chancellor Professor Zita Mohd Fahmi, the annual event was jointly organized by our Faculty of Integrated Life Sciences and Faculty of Computing and Engineering, as well as UTAR’s Faculty of Science’s Centre for Agriculture and Food Research.
Taylor’s University, INFORMM, USM, as well as India’s SAGE University Bhopal SAGE University Indore, India took part as organizing partners.
Under the theme “The Science of Today for the Technology of a Sustainable Tomorrow“, seven eminent keynote and invited speakers discussed the latest trends, advancements and breakthroughs in the fields of life sciences, environmental technology, engineering, computing and mathematics.
QIU believes that the future depends on young scientists and this symposium served as a pivotal event to further bolster their interest in research. Hats off to all the students and academics who made us proud!
We would also like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all the sponsors: SNS network (M) Sdn Bhd, WCE Holding Gaia Science (M) Sdn Bhd and Simplify Networks Sdn Bhd for their generous contributions.
