May 13, 2016 – ITMA received visitors from Schiffs and Industries Technik (M) Sdn. Bhd (SIT’s). A group of six people was led by SIT’s managing director Mr. Marizan Nor Basirun and their marketing manager Ms. Aliaa Marizan. Visitors were greeted by Head of Materials and Processing Technology Laboratory, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Suraya Abdul Rashid and her team.
During the visit they were briefed on ITMA’s history, background and achievements. They were also informed on facilities and services provided by ITMA. A short discussion took place on nano WiDE fuel and water diesel emulsion followed by future ITMA-SIT’s research collaboration. The discussion opened up new networking opportunity and spark ideas between two parties on how to improve emulsified fuel for combustion process.
In the last session, visitors had a tour to Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM) room and Materials and Processing Technology Laboratory. They were very excited after seeing the high technology facilities and services in ITMA. The visit ended at 6 pm and we hope further collaboration between ITMA and SIT’s will materialize soon.
