2022 Day 76 Task – Small CEE Group Meeting

Leading an organization, such as Centre for Engineering Education (CEE) could be tricky, challenging and overwhelming since a big chunk of our team is very busy academician (consisting of research fellow and associate fellow). All of them have their own special strength where they can contribute and I really appreciate them. Because of that, for CEE activities, I won’t be troubling them yet for certain activities that can be executed by our full time energetic and enthusiastic CEE staffs.

In the morning (10.30am) we had a small yet impactful discussion on what we should plan to do, plan to execute in this year. It covers the issue of SPC22, Webinars, Youtube, Discord, RCEE2021 and others. We will try to be as strategic and as systematic possible in terms of our program marketing.

Other tasks of the day:

  • Online meeting with Izyan and Hasmaliyana regarding Statik Paper for AJEE – 2.30pm
  • Signed and stamped Kelly’s certificate.
  • Signed and stamped TedXUTM society support letter.
  • Obtained and gave Hidayah all experimental consumption invoices for payment.
  • Small discussion with Prof K about RCEE2022 program to be organized by our Indonesian counterpart.

2022 Day 56 Task – Strategic Planning Centre for Engineering Education 2022 (SPC’22) – Online

Alhamdulillah, after a long time, finally we managed to start with first day of CEE Strategic Planning.

We can only plan but Allah decides. We plan for a 3 days 2 night retreat for the strategic planning but due to sudden spike of omicron positive cases, we have to opt for an online workshop. The workshop is not over yet. We have to break it down into smaller segments due to online limitations (difficulty to focus long duration of time in front of laptop).

We believe that we are heading in the right direction,

In Syaa Allah. Towards a more quality engineering program and quality engineers in Malaysia…

2021 Day 65 Tasks – Entering CEE Director’s Office for the 1st Time

I was officially appointed to be the new Director for CEE, UTM on the 1st of February 2021. But then, it was the pandemic era and we are asked to work from home and because of that I have not been to my new office. However, the permission to WFH has been lifted on the 5th of March 2021 and all UTM staffs have to come to workplace for work.

So here I am at my new office. I did a little bit of cleaning and arranging which took 30 minutes or so. Subsequently I continued to work.

Other highlights for today:

  • Preparing of SCEE RAE Documentation
  • Working on Consortium grant keyword project
  • Checked Raihan’s thesis
  • Checked Abdelrahim’s Chapter 1
  • IJET Corrections
