UIRL Visit to Pyrometric (Trescal) and Sirim

On October 2nd, most staff from UIRL along with me (as Quality Manager) went for a visit to 2 industrial lab who have obtained ISO certification for their services. Our first visit was to Pyrometric (now under Trescal) in Kempas and the secondth was to SIRIM, our next door neighbor. Lots of useful info and tips from these 2 places on obtaining ISO certification that would be useful for UIRL to be a recognized entity for lab services.

ICBME 2019

A rather late entry but 2nd ICBME 2019 was held in Bali from April 11-12th 2019. First time ever, bringing 4 students along and presenting all current research at the conference! Bravo all my students!

In actual, I played “mother” to 2 other students too ๐Ÿ™‚

From left to right, top to bottom, each student present their current/previous research according to the schedule; Heera, Mei Ling, Zetty, Punita & I presented Akmal’s work

Then off we went for some sightseeing. Maybe this kind of activities (outdoor get together) should be done every year
