STEM education is back again in the hand of IET UNITEN on Campus with the mind of introducing the concept of Solar Energy to secondary students in hopes to increase the students’ interest toward the Engineering field. Thanks to modern technological advancement, the future is filled with innovative technologies for comfort. Therefore, STEM education is really important for today’s generation to learn and gain much information and knowledge about the modern future.
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.
PUTRAJAYA, 11th November 2018 – The 7th Annual “Dance for Kindness (DFK)” took place at IOI City Mall situated in Putrajaya. The “Dance for Kindness” initiative is a movement created by Life Vest Inside, which unites people from all around the world, often segmented to as far as cities, to perform the same song, same dance, on the same day. Last year’s DFK took place in over 120 cities spread across 50 countries. This is the second time Putrajaya’s DFK took place at IOI City Mall, as well as the second time Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) organized the event. This time, it was sponsored by MIXIUQI as well as IOI City Mall.
Bakti Siswa, or more specifically, “Bakti Siswa 2018 Mahasiswa Harapan Rakyat” will be taking place this 26-29 September in Pagoh, Johor. It will be the biggest voluntary program ever conducted by UNITEN, with the idea to instill the sense of giving to people who are less fortunate and given the scale of the event, inspire the people around them to engage in volunteering as well. This 120-person expedition will deploy students and staff members from both Putrajaya and Muadzam campuses, making it the first Bakti Siswa to involve both campuses.
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.
For some of us, the most interesting UNITEN-related thing we can remember about the past few weeks is the drama that unfolded on the MPP UNITEN Facebook page, specifically the allegations made by certain parties towards another, and the resignation of 5 Student Representative Council (SCR) members. For the uninitiated, here’s the tea:

SUBANG, 3rd August 2018 – As the participants sat in the conference room at the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA), they were regaled with tales of bravery and valour.
