UNIMY had hosted the biggest online Tech Battle in Malaysia for Form 5, Upper 6, and Senior Middle 3 (SM3) students from 2 June to 1 July 2020. The contest was to introduce them to the new trends and different technologies within the ICT industry through questions revolving the areas of coding, cyber security, AI and Big data, IoT and Cloud Computing.
Through the event, students, especially those with a strong interest in digital technology, were exposed to knowledge and skills that would help guide them to build a career in the era of IR4.0. Keywords and scenarios that the students have picked up from the contest will serve as a starting point for those who are keen to further explore career opportunities related to IR4.0.
We are delighted and proud that the Tech Battle has successfully attracted 50 schools and 769 participants from both West and East Malaysia. To celebrate the winners, UNIMY had organized an award ceremony on 12 September 2020 where a total of 51 Gold Certificates and 141 Silver Certificates have been handed out to the victors.
The top 5 schools of UNIMY Tech Battle 200 were awarded with cash prizes while the Top 40 students will receive a one-day tech workshop at Serba Dinamik to allow them to explore how technology has evolved and propelling into the future. The rest of the winners, Top 41-100, received a cash book voucher worth RM50.
