There is always more to university life than mere academic achievements. On 25th Jan 2018, Derek Chung Zhong Kang, a petroleum engineering student from Society of Petroleum Engineers UTM Student emerged as first runner up in the Oil and Gas Intellectual Parade (OGIP) Paper Competition, which took place in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

As a fourth year student having to juggle between studies and final year project, the overwhelming pressure, however, did not stop him from participating in international competitions and bringing glory to SPE-UTM SC.

Alongside Derek were another 8 second year students who participated in the Smart Competition and Oil Rig Design Competition of the same prestigious event. They are the perfect portrayal of passionate young talents and we are truly proud of them.
