[Bakti Siswa 2019] – An Interview with Program Director, Amer Danial


    Bakti Siswa 2019 – Mahasiswa D’Hati Rakyat, conducted by the Student Representative Council of 2018/2019, will be taking place in Kampung Pachitan, Port Dickson from 11th-14th April 2018. It is the third installation of the Bakti Siswa series, and a tradition started by the Student Representative Council of 2016/2017 in Kampung Lahar, Kepala Batas, Pulau Pinang. Muhammad Amer Danial bin Rahmat, program director and president of the Student Representative Council of 2018/2019, describes Bakti Siswa 2019 as a volunteerism event for UNITEN students to immerse themselves in a rural kampong setting and adjust to the lifestyle of the locals, while contributing to their adopted families and the kampong as well.

    This year’s Bakti Siswa involves the most participants yet, comprising 160 participants from both Putrajaya and Muadzam campuses of Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN). NADi was able to observe decent feedback from the participants after they were involved in Bakti Siswa’s Training of Participants (TOP), which took place in the Leisure Hall from 6th-7th April 2019. Nur Syafiqah binti Mokhtar, one of the many participants, is feeling especially excited for Bakti Siswa 2019 after attending TOP, “I felt that the TOP was tedious and unnecessary at first, but I quickly turned around. I really enjoyed the activities and the bonding between the participants. I’m more excited now to meet my foster family and participate in the activities to come for Bakti Siswa.”

    IET UNITEN sheds light on Solar Energy to Secondary School Students in SMJK Yu Hua

    The new semester started with a new hope in “IET UNITEN On Campus”, which was to spark interest in engineering to school students. “STEM education”, which is the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines, namely science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, had been IET UNITEN on Campus’s focus for their iconic events. To kick off our slew of events, we decided to start with the great concept of Solar Power, as it is one of the familiar theories that secondary school students have studied in class. By introducing the Solar Kit Workshop to the school and give students a practical hands-on experience, this, in theory, boosts the students’ interest of pursuing their further education to the Engineering field. Considering that modern technology has taken over the world drastically, STEM education is really important for nowadays generation to learn and to gain much information and knowledge about the modern future.

    Convocation – More Than Just A Ceremony

    Convocation is the end goal of every university student. It is the time for tears and joy and for throwing your hat in the air like you just don’t care but you really shouldn’t, because you might get them dirty and I think that you need to return them later. But at the same time, it also marks the start of a new life for the graduates. It’s when we really need to start adulting and doing adult things like taxes and paying mortgages. All part of the charms of adulthood! Here are a few short interviews conducted with a few of our outstanding graduates.


    Where Are The Horses? – Horror Story

    Even before receiving my acceptance letter, I knew that UNITEN has its own equestrian club. For those who don’t know, it’s the club where people ride around on horses. It’s proudly advertised on the main website. Only upon coming to UNITEN did I realize that the club was inactive, the only four-legged animals prowling the campus being cats, stray dogs, monitor lizards and the occasional otter, which I have never personally seen, but multiple friends of mine have me convinced that they exist. I never intentionally set out to find what I did that day. I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
