I hope I can complete this task today and move on to the next huge task of today which will be checking ECM paper.

  • Check ECM journal paper draft.
  • Went through final IOP contract agreement.

2021 Day 139 Task – Plant Design Project Interim Presentation

We were all shocked from the national announcement made by MKN that UTM has been declared Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) which will commence on the 21st of May 2021. In Malay this is called PKPD or Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Diperketat. This simply means that the in and out movement to UTM will no longer be in the power of UTM but will be under the jurisdiction of MKN. It is expected that military and police will take guard UTM.

Nevertheless, live and work has to go on. Today, we are going to have the Plant Design Project Interim Presentation which will be from 2pm to 5pm.

Other highlighted tasks of the day:

  • Communicating with my PA students with regard of Covid in UTM
  • Preparing for the Chem Eng Online Interview questions and planning.
  • Coordination for RCEE2020 publication plan.

Day 202 Task – Finalizing Plant Design Project Marks

Yesterday I focus on finalizing Master Safety marks. Today, my prime goal is to once again check the final marks for Plant Design Project (PDP). There are so many marks, so many data, so critical and no room for mistakes as the credit marks for PDP is huge. It was very challenging, really, and at one point I have to seek help from Dr. Azizul to double check / audit the marks that I have finalized. Alhamdulillah, he pointed out one part which was not correct and after that all the marks were fine.

Bottom line, in this particular task, i learned that we need to be very careful, meticulous, detail, patient, when handling student marks which could be a critical point that direct the faith of their live direction. This is no joke. I don’t want to be making silly or careless mistake in deciding an important grade for this capstone subject. There’s no wrong to seek some assistance from our team to double check our work. It shows that we have integrity, nothing to hide, no personal agenda and no ulterior motive.

Day 201 Task – Finalizing Master MKKH Marks

Today, after getting the marks from Dr. Norzita, I checked, combined the marks and finalized it. The final marks result was not as usual but it was just fine for the 9 students under us. Though the final marks are ready, I have not yet key it into the system. I will probably do it in this coming few days as I want to focus on triple checking the Plant Design Project (PDP) marks which have so many data. Imagine having 14 Course Learning Outcomes for PDP and each weak there’s like 1 CLO to cover. Wish me luck.

Day 194 Task – Finalizing PDP and GSA Marks

I was very focus to complete the marking of the Plant Design Project (PDP) and Graduate Student Attribute (GSA) course marks. One full day was required just to do that. Finally I managed to filled in GSA marks in AIMS, but have not release the marks yet for students to view. In the other hand, I am planning to audit my own PDP marks once again since there are tonnes of marks and assessment for PDP. It’s like that due the fact that it is a Capstone Course with 14 CLO, the most a course in Chemical Engineering could ever have.
