Innovate Malaysia Design Competition (IMDC) 2017 is one of the largest engineering design competition in Malaysia, which is opened to all final year undergraduate engineering, computer science, and science/mathematics students. The goal of the competition is to promote innovative culture in engineering design work, tackle real-world problems with practical engineering solutions, and churn out brightest talents for product development, further research, and commercialization. Technology companies include Fusionex, Intel, Keysight, MathWorks, Microsoft, Motorola Solutions, National Instruments, SilTerra, and ViTrox, work together to co-organize the competition.
The competition, which saw the participation of over 600 students this year, received support from the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE), Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre (MaGIC), and the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM). USM students also took up a challenge and participated in this competition. Among all, 5 teams which representing the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering secured a total of 8 prizes in IMDC 2017 challenge.
Innovate Malaysia is a multi-disciplinary engineering design competition for undergraduates in Malaysia. It is co-organized by 9 technology leaders in the industry, supported by MOHE, MDEC, MaGIC, and IEM.
The competition serves to promote innovative culture in engineering design, tackle real-world problems with practical engineering solutions, and churn out brightest talents for product development, further research, and commercialization.
Participants are provided start-of-the-art industry platforms to develop their projects. They are trained on the industry platforms by DreamCatcher and mentored by the industry leaders. Participants work on Design Challenge supplied by various organizations in solving real-life problems.
Innovate Malaysia has become the largest engineering design competition in Malaysia over the years. It has become a platform to groom and acquire engineering talents; to promote adoption of industry platforms in the universities; and to align engineering solutions to real-world problems. In short, this programme prepares the brightest talents in pursuit of careers in high-value jobs, further studies, or technology start-ups.
