"To succeed, we need to focus and believe in ourselves. There is always obstacles in our path, but we need to go extra mile to achieve what we dream for,” said Chew Wi Kang, the recipient for Perodua Excellence Award at the Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) 14th Convocation Ceremony.
The Johore-born lass is the holder of B.Eng (Hons) Mechatronics Engineering with CGPA of 3.77.
He is not only outstanding in his academics as reflected in him being on the Dean’s List six times throughout his study years in UMP but is also actively involved in research and university’s programme.
The youngest child from three siblings says the campus life have changed him into a mature person.
“Although most of my times were occupied with all kind of activities, but I manage to allocate my time between co-curricular activities and studies. And I make sure to give full concentration in class to ensure better understanding of the subject,” he added.
Since September, Chew Wi Kang has been working in Singapore, as a Mechatronic Engineer for Al-Sus Industry.
He thanked all the lecturers for their endless support in spreading the knowledge, not only in the areas of Mechatronics, but also in leadership, teamwork and softskill.
