Forum What Does The Future Hold
On 3rd of November 2020, Biomedical Engineering and Health Science Society (BIOMEHS)in collaboration with School of Biomedical Engineering and Health Sciences have conducted anonline forum forBiomedical Alumni Talk (BAT) Series 1. The tittle of this online forum is “Biomedical Engineering: What does the future hold?”. This is the first online forum and first event that been held by BIOMEHS in this semester. It was held from 2.30 pm to 4.00 pm using Webex and FB live platform. Participants that involve in this programme are 291 students, three panellists and one moderator. This program is a platform for the students to increase their knowledge regarding biomedical engineering. The forum starts at 2.30 pm with the introduction of moderator and all the panellists. The moderator of this forum is Ts Dr Muhammad Hanif Bin Ramlee, a Senior Lecturer of School of Biomedical Engineering and Health Sciences.
The first panellist is Cik Syakirah Binti Mohamed Amin. She is a Medical Service Design Engineerat Materialise. Next is Encik Mohammad Izuddin bin Abd Kadir. Currently, he works at Siemens Healthineers as Customer Service Engineer. The last panellist is Encik Muhammad Farhan Bin Ishak, one of the Assistant Director inMedical Device Authority (MDA). All the panellists shared their working experience along with the informative and interactive slides that been prepared. After that, moderator began to ask questions to all the panellists. The question must be answered by all the panellists since every one have their own opinion on that question. The point that student can take note is the elements that needed by the students are design, communication skills, technical, basic knowledge on anatomy and electronic and teamworking skills. As we will go through the 4th Industrial Revolution, it is good to expose students on this because the automation helps engineer in the fields of electronics, software, Artificial Intelligence and other fields.
The Question and Answer session started at 3.35 pm. Audience has asked question at the chat box in Webex or commented at FB live. There are many questions been asked and the panellists managed to answer all the questions. Before the forum ended, the moderator asked the panellists to give advice to the students. Hence, they asked students to explore everything during this journey, enjoy student life, join programme and activities as it helps to develop self estreem and try applying practical in the company that the student want to have experience.
The forum that been lead by Nur Arifah Ummaimah Binti Mohd Rosli ended at 4.00 pm. As this forum is important for student to increase their knowledge about biomedical engineering, we hoped that all students that participated in this programme will get benefits and helping them in planning their career in the future. We would like to express our gratitude to all parties and organization who inolve in ensuring the success of this forum programme. Thank you to all the participants, alumni, panellists, moderator, committee, technical team and staff from School of Biomedical Engineering and Health Sciences.
