Shell Malaysia matches students with industry players

Make the Future Live returns to Malaysia for the second consecutive year to celebrate innovation among students. At the heart of Make the Future Live Malaysia is Shell Eco-marathon Asia, a platform that challenges students to design and build ultra-energy-efficient cars, and then put them to test. Make the Future Live Malaysia 2020 will take place in Sepang International Circuit (SIC) from the 2nd to the 5th of June.

This year, Shell Malaysia collaborated with Malaysia Automotive Robotics and IoT Institute (MARii) to significantly improve the outcome for five local teams participating in SEMA.

This was done by exposing the students to four local original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in a matchmaking session to encourage collaborations between industry players and Malaysian teams to enhance the performance of their cars.

This partnership is also highly beneficial for OEMs, allowing them firsthand-exposure to the potential talent the nation has in the area of STEM. The industry players who participated were:

Suria Component Manufacturing (M) Sdn. Bhd
Sapura Engineering Sdn Bhd
Kasai Teck See Malaysia Sdn Bhd
Jasa Sarjana Sdn Bhd
