Two UTAR teams reach semi-finals of MoHE Cup 2022

Pertandingan Usahawan Inovasi Piala Menteri Pengajian Tinggi 2022 or the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) Cup saw the participation of two teams from UTAR. Both teams managed to secure a place in the semi-final pitching as part of the top 30 groups among 310 participants and 62 groups from 47 institutions. As part of the semi-finals, the two groups attended a two-day bootcamp and pitching which was held from 28 to 30 November 2022 at Zenith Hotel Putrajaya.

Themed ‘Innovation Today for Future Sustainability’, MoHE Cup aimed to fulfil six SDG Goals, namely Clean Water, Food and Energy, Industry Innovation & Integration, Life on Land, Life Below Water and Climate Action, Good Health and Well Being, Quality Education and Gender Equality, Zero Poverty.

The competition was designed as a platform for students to convey creative ideas in business to the industry. This is so that their ideas can be developed at a more competitive level and allow their products to be applied as a sustainable business so that they can make entrepreneurship a career choice after graduation.

One of the UTAR teams named What the Health, reached the semi-finals with their product called PerceiVein. The team consisted of UTAR Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science (LKC FES) students Tan Xuan Qing, Lew Yanzhe, Teoh Jia Jing, and Chua Kai Wei, with UTAR Faculty of Creative Industries lecturer Dr Aloysius Yapp acting as the team’s advisor. Meanwhile, the second group, Smart Green Plant, was made up of LKC FES student Tan Ee Hung, who came up with a Smart Hydroponic Indoor Farming System for the competition. Both teams were able to reach the semi-finals and were among the top 30 groups in the country, overcoming many other teams nationwide.  

UTAR congratulates both teams for their wonderful accomplishment.
