A balance between Academic Knowledge and Industrial Experience is a state worth striving for.

Azwad Abid, the Winner of Chancellor’s Award in the 63rd Convocation, is an international student from Bangladesh. He graduated with a First Class Degree in Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical-Mechatronics). He managed to maintain an extreme balance between Academic and Industrial Experience by participating in more than 77 events in his fours years of the study period while maintaining a very high CGPA throughout the timeline. He was the President of UTM English Debate Club (under Kelab Depikir), an active member of UNESCO Club UTM and a Competitive Singer for UTM International.

While representing UTM, Azwad managed to get 18 distinct awards up to National level, including the Championship Award of Malaya Makerthon 2019, Championship of Global Startup Weekend Melaka 2018, Championship of University App Challenge 2017, and many more. On the other hand, he was an active participant on the Academic side by working as a Research Assistant for 2 and half years with many prominent lecturers.

While asked about how he managed his time to achieve such a balance, Azwad said the following:
“The Best Decision I ever made was to put more task on my basket than I thought I could do. One way to achieve that was to register for an event every weekend possible. This let me utilize my free weekend time instead of wasting it on sleeping. We got 52 weekends in a year, 208 weeks in the study period. That’s a substantial amount of time that can be utilized. And let’s not forget about the 3 months break. That time is a heaven for anyone who wants to learn. With that being said, the most important aspect of moving you forward is blessings from God (Barakah). That’s why praying to Allah (SWT) for what you exactly want is a must. Alhamdulillah, Allah (SWT) has answered my prayers. In sha Allah, he will answer your sincere prayers too.”

Currently, Azwad is working as a R&D Engineer at ViTrox Conrporation Berhad, Penang, Malaysia. He fervently hopes that everyone will keep him in their prayers so that he can use his abilities for the improvement of the societies in Malaysia, and all around the World.
