DBIT students won second prize in SMU InnovateIT 2014!

One year ago, we posted about DBIT students' win in InnovateIT 2013.

Today, we are happy to share that DBIT students have struck gold again in this competition!

In fact, we did even better than last year, emerging as the 1st runner-up InnovateIT 2014!

The winning team consisting of two DBIT Year 3 students Sally Chin and Anudharshini and one recent DBIT graduate, Kenneth Tan beat 40+ teams to emerge second in this yearly competition organised by SMU (Singapore Management University)!

And wow, they got a really cool prize for the win - a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1!

Besides the students who worked hard and got their well-deserved rewards, we must not also forget the lecturers who mentored and helped them in their journey to their success.  The following lecturers provided support for the students:
  1. Boh Cheh Wee - He was the mentor of the winning team who provided guidance and advice to the team in their preparation for the competition.
  2. Tan Hu-Shien – He brought the students to Hackathons so that they can learn from there. In addition, he also provided feedback and critic during the rehearsal.
  3. Clarence Ng – He was the main person who gave feedback to the students' proposals and helped to enhance their presentation skills.
  4. Chong Chee Seng - He oversaw the competition preparation and mentored two teams.
  5. Justin Monreal - He was the mentor of one of the 4 teams which joined the competition.
Well-done everyone, and we would like to thank everyone who worked hard to prepare for this competition, including the other three teams who participated in the event as follows.
