In conjunction with the MES Group 10th Anniversary, UTAR and MES Asia Sdn Bhd signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to form a partnership. The event took place on 26 November 2021.

The MoU was signed by UTAR President Ir Prof Dr Ewe Hong Tat and MES Asia Sdn Bhd Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Donna Ng. It was witnessed by Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science (LKC FES) Dean Ir Prof Dr Goi Bok Min and MES Asia Sdn Bhd BIM Manager Muizzuddin Jambari.

UTAR President Ir Prof Dr Ewe Hong Tat enthused, “I am glad to note that UTAR is collaborating with MES Asia Sdn Bhd, a BIM Consultancy company offering BIM Project Management throughout the project life cycle for the architecture, engineers and construction industry. With the signing of this MoU, UTAR and MES Asia Sdn Bhd will work together to encourage joint research and development as research plays an important social role in assisting entities and governments in developing policies, products and services that respond to the future success of society and humanity.

Prof Ewe added, “UTAR believes in industry-academic cooperation which benefits students, academic staff and industry experts as both parties will organise joint short courses, seminars, conferences, industry advisory activities, industry visits, training and consultancy. On behalf of the University, I extend my sincere appreciation to MES for sponsoring five BIM software licenses to our Civil Engineering students to study and conduct research for their final year projects as well as allowing our students to be exposed to the industry through the industrial placement programme to meet the increasingly challenging and ever-changing industrial requirements.”

The MoU aimed to facilitate the exchange of ideas and facilities, promote staff attachment and mutual visits by staff members, pursue research and curriculum development, and facilitate participation in seminars, conferences and workshops that are relevant to the industry.

Through this MoU, UTAR undergraduate and postgraduate students will also gain industry exposure through the industrial study visits. These initiatives would be a great learning opportunity for students to enhance their learning experience, professional development and curriculum development. UTAR is indeed pleased with this collaboration as it will enhance the learning experience of our students through the industrial placement. With this opportunity, UTAR students will be prepared to meet the increasingly challenging and ever-changing industrial requirements.
