IEEE SPS Malaysia Chapter was Awarded an MDI Grant of US$4,655
IEEE Signal Processing Society Malaysia Chapter was awarded the SPS Member-Driven Initiative (MDI) grant of US$4,655.00 to conduct their Professional Knowledge Series 2019 program. The objective of the program was to expose school students to the tools required for a career in signal processing. It was an attempt to bring more information to them before they make their career decisions and hence influence their attitude towards engineering and signal processing. Promotions of other SPS Malaysia Chapter activities help motivate student attendees and volunteers to join the IEEE and SPS in the future.
3 main activities were undertaken via this grant:
- Fast4wrd IoT Racing Championship, in conjunction with PECIPTA2019 on 22nd – 23rd September 2019. The event attracted 70 participants (22 IEEE members),
- Arduino Programming for Robot Development, on 13th – 14th September 2019 at Pusat Pengajian Ibnu Razak, Negeri Sembilan,
- Arduino Programming using mBlock at SK Seri Timbul, Batu Pahat, Johor in August 2019. The event was participation by 80 attendees (15 IEEE members).
