This year’s competition received 274 teams from 27 universities nationwide signed up to participate in the competition in various technology and application areas including integrated circuits, electronic systems, IoT, Big Data, mobile & cloud apps, automotive, smart applications, green technology, bioengineering, and other tech innovation areas. 36 teams were shortlisted as finalist teams to compete during the event for multiple prizes offered by industry as well as engineering professional bodies.

All university lecturers, researchers, and students in the relevent fields are invited to attend, admission is free.

Innovate Malaysia is a multi-disciplinary engineering design competition for undergraduates in Malaysia. It is co-organized by 5 technology leaders in the industry, including AWS, Intel, Keysight, Microsoft, and SilTerra.

The competition serves to promote innovative culture in engineering design, tackle real-world problems with practical engineering solutions, and churn out brightest talents for product development, further research, and commercialization.

Participants are provided start-of-the-art industry platforms to develop their projects. They are trained on the industry platforms by DreamCatcher and mentored by industry engineers. Participants work on Design Challenges supplied by various industries in solving real-life problems.

Innovate Malaysia has become the largest engineering design competition in Malaysia over the years. It has become a platform to promote the adoption of industry platforms in the universities, to align engineering solutions to real-world problems, and to groom and acquire engineering talents. In short, this programme synergises an ecosystem for industry-academia collaboration to produce talents and innovative solutions with state-of-the-art technologies.
