Shuhaib Nawawi Given Prestigious Award From University Of Michigan
In the dawn of green technology and sustainable policies it has never been more important for the future generation to be involved in the evolving efforts of scientists and researchers striving to manifest ways to create a greener future for the world.
In this opportunity the KYSER committee is proud to inform that Shuhaib Nawawi from the class of 2013 was recently awarded the Richard F. and Eleanor A. Towner Prize from the College of Engineering, Integrative Systems and Design, University of Michigan.
Shuhaib was selected for this prestigious award as he portrayed active participation in research, leadership and a high academic performance throughout his postgraduate program in the university.
A notable mention of one of his involvements was that he worked as a research assistant to the U-M President’s Commission on Carbon Neutrality in which he recommended strategies to reduce carbon emissions from university buildings.
He was also a Planet Blue Student Leader which was an organisation that looked into no-cost energy-saving solutions and waste management. All of this was done while he was a full-time student pursuing his Masters program in Energy Systems Engineering (ESE).
Shuhaib aspires to come back to Malaysia and serve his bond with Petronas, who sponsored his undergraduate studies, and plans to look into renewable energy in their New Energy Department.
This feat was achieved by a boy who’s journey began from the small town of Pasir Tumboh, Kelantan. Let his story remind us that no matter who we are, or where we come from, anything is achievable, as long as we have the passion and the will to do good for the community!
Here’s to a cleaner and greener future for us all, stay safe and stay healthy!
