Shell Eco-marathon Access Malaysia 2019
Shell Eco-marathon is one of the world’s leading energy efficiency competition programmes where school and varsity students are challenged to design, build and test their energy-efficient cars on track. Recognising the value Shell Eco-marathon offers to students, Shell Malaysia with the support from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) and the Department of Higher Learning, Student Development, Ministry of Education, embarked on Shell Eco-marathon Access (SEM Access), a platform for future participating universities, seasoned teams, alumni and business partners to come together to discuss, design and decide on how to shape the future of energy together.
How does it relate to MTF Live, Malaysia?
SEM Access is a programme designed to drive and support Malaysian university participation in Shell Eco-Marathon by strengthening the competition’s eco-system in Malaysia. The main intent is to get wider involvement of like-minded companies, government and universities to be part of the eco-system.
The creation of this eco-system will elevate Malaysian talents in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), innovation and Research & Development (R&D) amongst government, academia and partners.
Shell Eco-Marathon Access programme rides on Make the Future Live Malaysia event including Shell Eco-marathon Asia, injecting experiential learning and networking.
