LKC FES students showcase their talents at the online FYP poster competition

The Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science (LKC FES) Final Year Project once again came up with its first Final Year Project (FYP) Poster Competition for the year 2020. The biannual competition aimed at sharpening students’ thinking skills in creating a compelling and focused presentation of their final year projects. The event also aimed to help students realise their strengths and weaknesses and move forward to face the real competitive environment.

Due to the Movement Control Order (MCO), LKC FES Final Year Poster Competition and Industry Interaction Day, which was scheduled in April 2020 was cancelled and replaced with online LKC FES FYP Poster Competition.

The biannual competition saw a total of 33 winning posters from more than 700 students among the nine departments of LKC FES. The posters were submitted under nine tracks namely Architecture and Sustainable Design, Mechatronics and Biomedical Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Internet Engineering and Computer Science, Mathematical and Actuarial Sciences, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical and Material Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Quantity Surveying.

The posters were evaluated based on the appearance and content and were assessed by internal judges in with three different levels of screening, namely level 1 - at the supervisor level, level 2 - at the department level, and lastly level 3 - at the faculty level. All winners were awarded certificates to mark their achievement.
