Engineering Student wins Sir John Monash Medal for Outstanding Achievement
Lim Ee never thought that he would win the prestigious Sir John Monash Medal award one day. He is truly humble and honoured to be the recipient of the award. According to Lim Ee, he was usually the quiet kid in class, back in his schooling days. During his first year at Monash Malaysia, he decided to step out of his comfort zone and did things that he was previously afraid of, such as public speaking, socialising and taking up responsibilities. It was definitely the turning point in his life. For him, the secret to success was ‘to leave your comfort zone behind and just try your best’.
Lim Ee is currently working as a Process Mechanical Engineer at Agilent Technologies LDA in Penang. His message to the current student is “Having good time management skills and task prioritization helps, especially when pursuing your studies in engineering. Also, learning is a lot more enjoyable when you're in good company”.
The Sir John Monash Medal for Outstanding Achievement is awarded to a final-year undergraduate student of each faculty who has achieved excellent academic records and demonstrated significant commitment during his/her time at Monash in advancing the university’s goals of social justice, human rights or sustainable environment.
Apart from academic excellence, Lim Ee took a leadership role as the President of Engineers Australia Monash Sunway Student Section (EAMSSS) in 2018 and Deputy Managing Director for the organising committee of Engineering and IT Leadership Program (EILP) 2018 Summit which focuses on encouraging students to lead with confidence, never give up and confront challenges to succeed. He was also involved in community projects such as outreach program to introduce STEM to the Zomi refugees as well as Rainbow of Life Forces (ROLF) event where those in orphanages were invited to KL Botanical Garden for a fun-game day and fund raising event.
Congratulations to Lim Ee for his outstanding achievements!
