“Volt-tech 2.0: The Journey Begins Here” is an annual programme held by Jurutek (the Student Association of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia) under the advisory of Dr. Jasrul Jamani Jamian. This year, the programme was held by Jurutek in collaboration with Crest Malaysia on March 30 and April 2, and involved 108 students from Sekolah Menengah Teknik (SMT) Malaysia of Kedah, Penang, Pahang, Kuala Lumpur, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca and Johor specialising in the fields of electrical, civil and mechanical. During the programme, the students were exposed to the university’s learning environment – through university-styled lectures in lecture halls, lecture rooms and laboratories. The students were also exposed on the use of Arduino and were trained to write proposals to solve industrial-related problems.
