Engineering Award

Would it be nice to be awarded handsomely for our good and brilliant effort? Would it be wonderful to be recognized by our peers and professionals from the same field? Have you been awarded for something before?

During my undergraduate studies, I was awarded “BP Computing Award 1998, University of Bradford”. I received a letter during summer informing and inviting me to attend a brief ceremony that was held that afternoon (I forgot the exact date and hall. That was about 9 years plus ago…). Initially I was puzzled and wandered why I received the award. Soon, I was informed that I got the highest mark for the subject “Computer Aided Process Engineering” and that led me to the award. Unfortunately, the prize was a just a gas handbook. I was hoping some sort of certificate or trophy which can be displayed on my wall or desk. Well, that’s fine; I just kept the official invitation letter to receive the award.

Few years after that, I’m a member (research officer and master student) of Chemical Reaction Engineering Group (CREG), a research group in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. The group (which included me) won numerous local and international awards. I even kept a local newspaper cutting about our research. The photo of the head of research group, Prof. Dr. NASA, my colleague Ir. Dr. Didi and me beside the rig was printed. It’s fun and I’m proud of it. There was also documentary of our research group being shown in national television and off course I’m one of the stars in it. I acted performing some experiment to synthesize HZSM-5 zeolite catalyst (a type of silica alumina adsorbent).

Maybe you want to share some of your awards? Recognitions?


Other “Engineering Award” story occurred recently:

Bath: A chemical engineer who used a saucepan to develop a method of eliminating a source of radioactive waste has won a prestigious award. Professor Stan Kolaczkowski, of the University of Bath, was jointly given a highly commended award for services to the environment at the Institution of Chemical Engineers' gala dinner awards in London.

Off course they can. Maybe later I'll research on that matter and post it. Thanks
