UM Applauds Young Inventors and Innovators for Winning MTE Innovation Awards

Universiti Malaya is proud to present the winners of the Malaysia Technology Expo (MTE) Innovation Awards Programme 2022. Every year, inventors and innovators in this nation and beyond attend this prestigious event, with the hope of winning the highly coveted and widely regard gold medal award. Since the pandemic, MTE had been providing virtual events for young inventors and innovators to participate from the safety of their homes. And though the movement restrictions and SOPs have been lightened, the safety of MTE’s visitors and participants is still a top priority, thus the virtual events continue as the best way to highlight the expo’s work, celebrate innovations and support young inventors during this turbulent time.

We at UM would like to announce the winners of Gold Award: Prof. Ir. Dr. Sulaiman Wadi Harun (Handheld High Power Fiber Laser Welding system), Prof. Ulung Datuk Dr. Harith Ahmad (MicrOptiQ2000: A Compact 2 µm Fiber Laser), Dr. Mohd Sayuti Bin Ab Karim (Automated Methadone Dispenser), Professor. Ir. Dr. Ubagaram Johnson Alengaram (Application of Recycled Plastic Waste as an Alternative Material for Aggregate in the Construction of Pavement in the Universiti Malaya Campus) and Dr. Wong Kah Hui (NEVGRO® for Mighty Mitochondria). Congratulations to you all for winning this highly prestigious award.

We would also like to congratulate Prof. Dr Moy Foong Ming (MyDietCam- A Food Recognition based mobile diet Application) and Professor. Ir. Dr. Ubagaram Johnson Alengaram (Utilization of Bio-Calcite from Microalgae as Cement Replacement in Cement Mortar for Concrete Repair and Rehabilitation) for winning the Silver Award; and Dr. Mario Arturo Ruiz Estrada (An Introduction to the multi-level Three propellers Integral System) for winning the Bronze Award.
