Testing my Heating Mantle Capabilities

Checking and testing in progress. It has not been used for quite some time and now I am checking it out to see if it is OK and can meet the desired temperature I wanted to launch my new research.

It should be able to reach 500 oC. Today’s experiment showed that it reached 360 oC, merely based on the limitation of my mercury thermometer.

Therefore, in conjunction with this special event, I would urge the whole UTM community to celebrate this memorable occasion with the graduates and their families. We should appreciate this happy moment in celebration with students and their families. As we frequently mention, the whole campus eco-system is involved in nurturing the students.As such, I would like to invite everyone in UTM community at all levels to give the best to all our guests.

Let them feel our friendly culture. Let us pray that this UTM Convocation Ceremony will run smoothly with much joy and happiness.

This is actually a Mock Interview to prepare the final students for interview when they start applying for work in a few months time. 15 students were interviewed in 4 sessions.

Meeting with Plant Design Students

After lunch and solat, I had a 45 minute meeting with a Plant Design Project group. It is not my group, but other group. They need some opinion, ideas and comments. Though when dealing with Plant Design Project, I can wear a hat as supervisor and/or as coordinator, but this time, I am just wearing a hat as a lecturer who help out this team. I hope this team got some precious input from the discussion just now. Before leaving, the claimed that they were glad to have a meeting with me, although not long. Alhamdulillah.
