On June 24, 2016 (Friday), UTAR IET Student Chapter had organised an industrial visit to IME. There were 40 engineering students from various major that visited us for the first time.
UTAR IET Student Chapter is keen to support students’ early professional development, so does IME. We are glad that these students have the golden opportunities to explore the engineering industries in Malaysia. It is important for students to get out of the classroom and explore product development challenges and solutions in the real world.
IME Engineering and Technology Day aims to spark students’ interest in engineering industry by sharing the latest insights in engineering and technology. Also, it enables students to have a clearer sense of their strengths, interests and goals while they were having fun during the industrial visit. Furthermore, it is also the best way to promote STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education as STEM are viewed as fundamental elements in the preparation of our next generation.
In this 3-hour session, students were talked through the current and future of engineering. They were then split into groups to discover 3D scanning, 3D printing as well as 3D design. Through these workshops, they learned how to create assemblies and prepare models for 3D printing.
