RVS College of Engineering & Technology (RVSCET), Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, India recently visited to Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEE), Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Malaysia. The 6-day visit from 9th to 14th February 2020, was part of the activities planned by FEE and RVSCET under the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in March 2019.
The sixteen-member team led by Professor & Head Dr. S. S. Sivaraju, Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, comprised of Two Assistant Professor and 13 UG Engineering students at the same time as FEE were led by Dr. Nurfadzilah Ahmad and Dr. Zulkiffli Abdul Hamid. The week-long activities began with the opening ceremony with our RVSCET team and welcome by the Deputy Dean of Academic Affairs, Assoc. Prof. Ir. Dr. Ahmad Farid Abidin followed by an academic briefing by Head of Department, Assoc. Prof. Ir. Dr. Hasmaini Mohamas.
The program followed by Laboratory visits, Student activities, Staff interaction and discussion on potential collaboration and finally ended with a closing ceremony by Prof. Dr.S.S.Sivaraju and FEE Dean, Assoc. Prof. Ir. Ts. Dr. Juliana Johari.
The delegates were brought to UiTM’s Green Energy Research Centre (GERC) and Communication Satellite Centre which are both located in the university campus. These visits further strengthened the relationship between RVSCET and UiTM as the delegates were briefed on the aim and activities in the centers. During the visit to the Satellite Centre, the delegates were briefed on the satellite UiTM SAT-1 that UiTM launched recently. The delegates felt that the visits to the two research centers were very beneficial as they gained detailed knowledge on solar panels such as construction methods, type of material used and the type of battery usage.
It was interesting, the RVSCET students presented their research project to the FEE lecturers and students. One of the researches that attracted the attention of the audience was research on Electric Vehicle (EV). The discussion between the two institutions during the six-day program shows a very promising potential in terms of collaborative research and teaching between RVSCET and UiTM.
