IEEE USM Student Branch won Silver in Darrel Chong Student Activity Award. The award serves to recognize activities orchestrated by IEEE bodies around the world that bring much impact to society.

We have been awarded for the success in one of our flagship events, namely Techmentor. Techmentor is an initiative based on volunteer teaching, where facilitators called Techmentors will be trained beforehand to impart them with the necessary knowledge to guide participating secondary school students. Several Techmentors will be responsible for facilitating the participating teams in terms of teaching and technical support, and to prepare the team for a competition which will be held toward the end of the project.
