I am proud to announce that UTP has sapu bersih all the top prizes in this competition. We sent three teams and all of them won.
We are quite lucky to beat LaFarge (one of the prominent cement/concrete supplier in the world) and engineering-renowned university such as UTM. Perhaps next year this event will be more competitive. We will see.
While testing the UTP cube, I was told that the compression testing machine at UiTM broke down with an explosion! I hope we don’t get banned for this in the next year’s event ;)
Below is the email sent by the team leader, Mr Hafiz Baharun.
