IEEE Regional Exemplary Student Branch Award 2020

Congratulations to IEEE Monash University Malaysia Student Branch in achieving "IEEE Regional Exemplary Student Branch Award 2020"! An international recognition for our student branch's stellar performance from 2018 to 2019. The purpose of the IEEE Regional Exemplary Student Branch Award is to provide public recognition of exemplary IEEE Student Branch operations.

Dr. Alpha Agape Gopalai, who is the Student Branch Counselor for IEEE Monash University Malaysia Student Branch and the Student Activities Chair for IEEE Malaysia Section indicated that the committee members of IEEE Monash University Malaysia Student Branch have been working hard to improve the membership growth from previous years. The committee members managed to increase from 6 members in 2018 to 60 active members in 2019, being the top 10 highest memberships in student branches across Malaysia.

Numerous technical workshops and networking events were organized to promote the membership growth and retention. These include Solidworks Workshop, AI/Machine Learning Workshop, Arduino Workshop, Python Workshop and IEEE Members Night. Besides enrichment of members’ technical skills and networking, the student branch also helps to promote visibility throughout the campus and attract more members. It was also involved in organising various major events including the programming competition (IEEEXtreme 13.0) and the Advanced Engineering Colloquium (AEC) 2019.

Jinnie, President of the IEEE Monash University Malaysia Student Branch (for 2019) said, “It is a great honour to receive this award for our student branch, despite the challenge in recruiting new members due to the relatively high IEEE membership fees. This achievement couldn’t be done without the amazing team (6 committees) that I had in addition to the invaluable advice and support from our student branch counsellor, Dr. Alpha. We would also like to extend our sincerest gratitude to Monash University Malaysia Engineering Club (MUMEC) and the School of Engineering for their support including the membership fees subsidy which greatly helped with membership growth and retention. This is our first time winning this award. I hope the future committees can continue our legacy to strive harder for better achievements in the future.”

Thank you to the committee members of IEEE Monash University Malaysia Student Branch who had been working hard and their contribution towards winning this award for the first time.
