UCSI University’s IEEE-HKN MU Alpha Chapter was awarded the Outstanding Chapter Award for the fourth consecutive term (2014-2015, 2015-2016, 2016-2017 and 2017-2018) this year. This great honour is credited to the diligence and persistence of all members who have shown their commitment to keep the club active by bringing a whole new variety of successful activities and events.
During the OCA presentation conducted on June 4, 2019 all 2018 batch members were awarded with the certificate of recognition for their excellent performance and voluntary contribution to IEEE and ETA Kappa Nu.
Harry Hoon Jian Wen, IEEE-HKN Mu Alpha Chapter president, expressed his sincere appreciation to all committee members who contributed their time in holding the event, and also guiding all the members in the club and being consistent in supporting the club as well as the IEEE-HKN Chapter to go further.
“I am very grateful for everything that Mu Alpha has given to me, in terms of academic and technical knowledge, industry engagement opportunities, and amazing friendships built among members. I have almost reached the end of my undergraduate academic journey and my journey can never be the same without Mu Alpha. I sincerely wish that Mu Alpha will continuously, long lastingly strive for more and better growth in the coming years,” he added.
Club advisor, Assistant Professor Dr Lim Wei Hong, also presented his speech and gave a word of encouragement to the new committee.
“Our team is amazing and they never fail to surprise us with their events. IEEE-HKN is an excellent platform for the students to develop their soft-skills in order for them to stay competitive in their future workplace. I hope this OCA award can be a catalyst to motivate our new members to contribute more in promoting the core values of IEEE-HKN. Finally, I also would like to express my sincere appreciation to our strategic partner, i.e., UCSI IET On Campus, for their strong support in organising events together. We hope that this strategic partnership can stay strong in order for us to bring more positive impact to the community.”
