The MMU Student Branch of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), under Engineering Society of the Faculty of Engineering (FOE) organised two sessions of the A2G Workshop series on 15 and 16 July 2021. The sessions were conducted by Dr. Tan Wooi Haw, Deputy Dean of FOE and a total of 50 participants attended the sessions.

A2G stands for A to G (A = Artificial Intelligence, B = Big Data, C = Cybersecurity, D = Big Data, E = Energy, F = Fiber and G = 5G). The A2G Workshop series aims to equip graduating students with basic working knowledge on the A2G and to give them a head start on their jobs in industries. It also helps new students to get a gist of subjects that are taught in the core syllabi.

In the first session entitled “Introductory Python”, the attendees learned about Python syntax, data types, modules, programming concepts, and the popular applications of Python. In the second workshop, “Artificial Intelligence with Python” the attendees were enlightened on the basics of AI and its various underlying concepts such as the types of AI, Machine Learning, and various Machine Learning algorithms. They were also taught how to leverage their newly learned Python skills to build AI systems that have practical applications.

Both workshops were successfully completed and the attendees gave their positive feedback for the events. The organiser also encouraged students to become a member of the MMU IEEE Student Branch and enjoy the privileges such as being updated with the future workshops as well as receiving a hefty discount or even a full waiver on registration fees for all the events that they organise.

Well done!
