Day 205 Task – UMS Chemical Engineering PDP Viva Session

As shared yesterday, today I will be the evaluator / assessor for Team 1 and Team 8 for the Final Year Chemical Engineering students of Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS).  The first session started at 9am, which is the session with Team 1 while 10.45am was the session with Team 8. The session which took place in Google Meet was smooth and fruitful. I did asked many questions and also in some areas helped clarify few things to the students.

At 2.30pm, a special session involving invited assessors, supervisors and students were held, also in Google Meet. I was given the opportunity to comment and give suggestions on the session held in the morning. Other assessors also commented as well.

Overall it was a very good session. I learned a lot from the program, even though I was the assessor. I learned how they handled / conducted the program. It is good for me since I am the Coordinator for PDP in the Chemical Engineering program in UTM.

Day 204 Task – Reviewing UMS Chemical Engineering Plant Design Project Pre-Recorded Presentation

I was invited to evaluate Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) Chemical Engineering Plant Design Project (PDP) for their Final Year Student. It was my first time to be invited for this program and I have earlier agreed. Since the program will take place tomorrow and the pre-recorded presentation have been given to me 2 days ago, I spent basically almost the whole day watching tentatively to this presentation. It is not like the PDP that we have for our chemical engineering PDP in UTM.

For this, I was assigned to be the evaluator for 2 teams, which were Team 1 and Team 8. Each team have a general pre-recorded presentation and each members will also have their own pre-recorded presentation. The allowed time for each individual presentation in 15 minutes maximum. Each team have 5 students. Just imagine the time spent to view the presentation, and also to understand it, plus jotting down questions to be asked.

Luckily I managed to complete all videos by the end of the day and have all my questions ready for tomorrow. Wish me luck for tomorrow.

Day 203 Task – Miscellaneous Tasks

Today, I am not going to specify a special official task. I will be sharing a few that I will do today and that include:

  1. Improving and making correction for ICLCA manuscript after receiving comments from reviewers few days ago.
  2. To do review for Education for Chemical Engineer (ECE) journal.
  3. To work on my Master student research paper.
  4. To follow up on my PhD students job progress – Four of them at the moment which I am the main SV.
  5.  To work on HTGYE book.
  6. To check and review my task as External / Industrial Panel for UMS Chemical Engineering Plant Design Project this coming Thursday.

OK, let’s just see at the end of the day if I managed to complete all of it. If I can complete more than half of the list, that’s still good enough, good progress for me.
