We would like to congratulate our MMU team for clinching the Honorable Student Award at Huawei Developer Competition, the Asia Pacific on 21st September 2022 in Thailand. The team consisted of our students from the Faculty of Computing and Informatics (FCI) namely Chuah Jie Yi, Muhammad Waiee Zainol, Tan Zhi Hang, and Ahmad Ayaan. Mentored by Dr. Ng Kok Why, Deputy Dean of FCI, the team received a cash prize of USD3000 for their attainment. Prof. Dato’ Dr. Mazliham Mohd Su’ud, President of MMU also congratulated the team at his office, recently.
The first round of the competition started on 1st July until 19th August 2022. The team registered for the competition and had a Huawei Cloud account, and they submitted their proposal deck of what they would develop and how they would link their application to the Huawei Cloud. The team was given USD150 to access, learn, and employ the Huawei Cloud services in their development. Of 136 teams from 13 countries (Asia Pacific), our team, “Traffic Light Recognition Assistance”’ was one of the 40 shortlisted teams.
They went through the Huawei Cloud Technology training and certification programme from 20th August until 13th September 2022. In the end, the teams were required to present their development work online from their own country, where the MMU team was selected for the final round. There were 9 teams competing in the final round in Thailand for pitching offline. One interesting fact is our MMU team is the youngest among the finalists as the majority of the participants were Master’s and Ph.D. students. You may view their pitching session via this link.
