Award-Winning Students from Asia Pacific University (APU)
2 teams from APU’s Schools of Computing & Technology emerged as the Champion & 1st Runner Up teams of the HILTI IoT Competition 2020, which was conducted virtually over a few days.
The win made the university immensely proud as they were the only Malaysian university that had representations at the Finals of the competition – not 1, not 2 but 4! Out of these 4 teams, “Team Acefaction” attained the championship whereas “Team Ants” emerged as the 1st Runner Up. Despite having to conduct their presentations virtually in midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, APU’s teams performed outstandingly and were able to propose world-class Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for the construction industry, as specified in the competition scope.
Although they were made up of Diploma & Undergraduate students, their confidence level and their competitiveness were nothing short of what were demonstrated by their competitors, who comprised Postgraduate and Undergraduate students from National University of Singapore (NUS), University of Liechtenstein and ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
As a result of their excellence, APU’s Champion team won themselves an opportunity to visit Hilti’s strategic IT locations and to build their network with Hilti IT personnel, while their 1st Runner Up team walked away with a piece of Hilti’s power tool that comes with a lifetime warranty. Both teams were mentored by the qualified and experienced lecturers from the Schools of Computing & Technology whilst the other 2 finalist teams were guided by School of Engineering lecturers.
