Miri – 25 May 2012 – The Chemical Engineering Student Club (CESC) of Curtin University, Sarawak Malaysia (Curtin Sarawak) recently organised a sports competition to foster closer ties between engineering students and lecturers of the university as well as promote healthy lifestyles through participation in sports.

About 80 students and lecturers representing the Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Civil and Construction Engineering, and Applied Geology departments of the School of Engineering and Science took part. 16 teams competed in the badminton doubles and eight teams in captain ball.

The highlight of the event was a friendly match between badminton doubles winners Daniel Chong and Jasper Kwok, both foundation engineering students, and a lecturers’ team comprising the Head of the Department of Chemical Engineering, Associate Professor Dr. Chua Han Bing, and chemical engineering lecturer and CESC advisor Dr. Agus Saptoro.

The ‘Civil Rocks’ team comprising Chou Ka Chun, Ian Chuo, Loo Tshun Vui, Bong Shi May and Lee Sii Kee emerged the winners in captain ball.

Apart from organising sports events, the CESC also organises other campus events such as the upcoming Chemical Engineering Days 2012 showcase from 10 to 11 August 2012. The club’s main objective is to provide opportunities for chemical engineering students to develop critical soft skills that would be useful in their future careers.
