IEM UNM Student Section Wins Outstanding IEM Student Section Award


The IEM University of Nottingham Malaysia (UNM) Student Section was announced as the winner of the Outstanding IEM Student Section Awards for two years consecutively for the year 2020 and 2021 on 7 August 2021.

The virtual award ceremony was held in conjunction with the IEM Young Engineers National Summit 2021 (NATSUM 2021) organised by the IEM (Southern Branch) - Young Engineers Section, which ran from 5 to 7 August 2021. The 2020 award was postponed last year due to the movement control order (MCO) and it was held this year during NATSUM 2021.

“I am very proud of the IEM UNM Student Section. They have worked very hard in organising various virtual activities and they have been very active in promoting engineering activities to our students. I also wish to thank the Faculty of Science and Engineering and all the Engineering Departments for the continuous support given to the Student Section,” said Dr Hii Ching Lik, Club Advisor to the IEM UNM Student Section.

Currently, the student section is led by Joshua Terence Dolinting (Year Three, Electrical and Electronic Engineering).

“Despite the pandemic, we were able to organise virtual events throughout the year. The synergy of our committee is the stronghold that keeps the momentum going and we never let any challenges prevent us from carrying out our mission to nurture budding engineers. The award serves as a recognition for the resilience and dedication of every single committee,” added Joshua.

The student section previously won the Outstanding IEM Student Section Award in 2017 and is also a four-time winner in the Student Association awards for Best Society in 2017, 2018, 2019 and now in 2021.
