Day 342 Task – Monthly Meeting with PhD Student that I Co-Supervised

Earlier today, we visited (ziarah) our friend Dr. Norzita because her mother passed away. Please accept our condolences.

Immediately after that, official work commenced. Among them were to submit the payment invoice for UPMU to Radis, reviewed a manuscript from a reputable Q1 journal, checked my PSM student research work progress.

One of the interesting event today was the meeting with Salman, a PhD student that I supervised. We have an online meeting at home (WFH) and the progress of this student is amazing so far. We’re pretty impressed with his awesome ideas and rapid progress. I can see that this student have a bright future ahead and can finish fast if his work rate is like that.

On a different note, at 11.15pm at night, we had a trial online mock run for Zarifah, my master student who earlier has some issues with her microphone (attached to her laptop). Dr. Mazura, her co-supervisor was very helpful, knowledgeable and skillful to troubleshoot. Believe it or not, the trouble shooting process lasted at 1.00am in the morning.

Day 315 Task – ITE Class

I literally didn’t have my weekend, mainly because of the massive preparation and conducting the Pesisir MKKH1513 class since Thursday till Sunday. But, I am very happy and excited with my new experience.

And now is a Monday and again, I have to prepare for the ITE class took place just now at 11am-1pm. I had a brief phone call discussion with Dr. Siti Hajjar, my partner for ITE class. One of the most important thing is that we clearly decided on the time line for what we are going to cover in class. The time line is very important for me because without it, I will be lecturing and telling a lot of story to the students…. haha…. But this time, I cannot do that, and in fact I realized I did not have sufficient time to clearly explain to the students the concept of CPBL before we threw away to them the mosquito case study in Uganda.

Many things have to be accomplished in this class that include breaking the students into their teams for them to prepare PR and PI, for them to practice. We hope the students will be able to prepare the new PR and PI for Stage 1 problem that was revealed to them in class yesterday. InsyaAllah.

Among other things that were done today include checking the students engineering ethics assignment, small group meeting with CEE director and assistant director on some decision making stuffs. Also some brief follow up and consultation with my research students. We also had a webex meeting with Salman, a new phd student doing progressive free cystallization where I am the co-SV, while my other half is the main SV. The design prepared by Salman is very interesting and he really thought of every detail. This definitely can be patented, provided everything is right, ok to go and the objective is achieved.

PhD Mock Viva Session for Shafiqah

Despite attending the engineering education Workshop Part 3, I attended the PhD mock viva for Shafiqah, a student that I co-supervised (She is supervised by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mazura Jusoh). The event took place at 2.15pm till 5pm. The session was very fruitful and hopefully she can rapidly improve her slides and presentation for next week’s VIVA session.
