2022 Day 60 Task – Checked SG’s Manuscript

Today I applied for an annual leave to take care of Ikhwan who is positive (and soon late afternoon we discovered that Zara was also positive). Nevertheless, the work loads kept piling up, but I keep on settling one by one. What I would like to highlight here is that I read, checked and commented on SG’s first manuscript attend to be submitted to ASEAN Journal of Engineering Education (AJEE). The special thing about SG is that he is still in his 1st year and just completed his 1st semester. However, I realized and discovered his maturity in writing and motivate him to write something of great value, that is a manuscript. Let’s see how it goes soon.

2022 Day 59 Task – Filled Up INATEX 2021 Online Forms

I have to travel to UTM to fill up the INATEX 2021 online forms since the submission need to be done using UTM line and system, which can only be accessed within UTM vicinity. Two of my students Areen and Mohamed, who both of them were originally Dr. Muhammad Tahir’s students participated in INATEX 2021 this year. To access the system is tricky and to fill up the form is also tricky. Luckily the students have diligently prepared the video and information to be submitted in the system. That happen after several meetings with Dr. Tahir as well who is far away in UAE.

Other tasks of the day:

  • Finalized marks for ITE and ISP
  • Met ABSI

Alhamdulillah this program which was my first time, first training, first involvement went smooth. This means that after this we will be one of the interviewers for the Focus Group Discussion (FGD). In Syaa Allah…Towards a more quality engineering program and quality engineers in Malaysia… (Link)

Other tasks for the day:

  • Completed RAE SCEE Proposal on the WBS, Theory of Change, Gantt Chart and Budget.

2022 Day 40 Task – RAE SCEE Proposal Preparation

The due for RAE SCEE is around the corner and my main challenge (or rate limiting reaction) is the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). This has been the toughest one for me and I anticipate that the Theory or change and Budgeting will be the next one.

2021 Day 231 Task – Reviewed Frontier Psychology Manuscript

I am already a Review Editor in Bioenergy and Biofuels, under Frontier Publication. It’s normal that I received manuscript in the niche of biofuel, bioenergy, catalysis and others to be reviewed. However, yesterday I received a totally different manuscript which is related to Education Psychology. I am not sure yet how they found me and appointed me to be the reviewer because I am still very new in the Engineering Education arena. Somehow, maybe some of the engineering education papers that I co-authored were detected by the Editor in Front. Psychol. – Educational Psychology; and also they found out that I have reviewed other Engineering Education publications.

Nevertheless, I accepted the invitation and made the review. Definitely a new experience for me. Thanks Editor.

2021 Day 226 Task – Reviewing Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering

Before receiving this invite from the Editor, I never have heard about The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering (CJCE), which is part of Wiley Publication.

Here’s some information about The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering (IF: 2.007), published by Wiley on behalf of The Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering, is the forum for publication of high quality original research articles, new theoretical interpretation or experimental findings and critical reviews in the science or industrial practice of chemical and biochemical processes.

Thanks a lot for providing me the opportunity to read an interesting research work.
