The University of Southampton Malaysia (UoSM) is awarding scholarships to engineering students who have excelled in the UoSM Top Achiever Scholarships Exam. The exam was held on July 2018 and a total of RM194,800 in scholarships has been awarded to the successful students.

In line with the University’s Mission to change the world for the better, the UoSM Top Achiever Scholarships Exam supports the next generation of engineering students by awarding the brightest and most talented students with a 100 per cent scholarship.

Speaking about the scholarship awards, Prof. Rebecca Taylor, Pro Vice-Chancellor (ASEAN) and CEO of UoSM said, ‘’The world is facing highly complex challenges and the potential solutions require creative and interdisciplinary thinking. As a University renowned for its excellent research, we are pleased to be in the best position to help develop young professionals who will be able to make a positive contribution to society.’’

Science stream students from schools across Malaysia were encouraged to apply to write the scholarship exam.

Dr Jo-Han Ng, an assistant professor at UoSM said, ‘’the scholarship’s goal is to give back not just to students with excellent grades but also to students who have the potential to be world leading engineers but who may need to secure financial support to pursue their studies.’’

Following the recent scholarship exam, A-level student Angus Khaw Han Zhe received the full scholarship award for the first year of his studies.

‘’A career in research and development intrigues me. I simply wish to contribute to the evolution of human technology. An earth-shattering breakthrough would be the ultimate dream, but a small step forward would be just as satisfying, because it would mean that I left the world better than it was”, Angus said. He plans to pursue a career in research once he finishes his integrated Masters.

Liang Hong Lee was also excited to receive the results of the exam. ‘’When I first found out I got the scholarship, I was surprised and overjoyed. This scholarship means a lot for me for this will help ease my parents’ finances.’’ Hong Lee is a science stream student from Seri Omega School in Johor Bahru. As a young boy, he found machines interesting so he would like to build on this interest through his studies in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at UoSM.
