KDU’s Design Team does it again!

Great students come from great teachers. This is certainly the case for KDU's Centre of Design Excellence who celebrated another milestone recently during the Pesta Open Art Competition on the 5th of December 2011. It was a cause for double celebration when Maizul Affendy, a design lecturer for KDU and his student Pang Cheng Hwa were both selected to exhibit their work in the Penang State Museum and Art Gallery in Dewan Sri Pinang.

Their artworks titled 'Sejahtera Malaysia' by Maizul Affendy and 'The Present' by Pang Chen Hwa were also amongst the 38 artworks selected from 127 submitted for the event. Maizul Affendy also walked away with a prize money RM 5000 as well for his effort.

In separate competition, 2 KDU Centre for Design Excellence students also won the 2nd and 3rd prize recently in the Malaysia Batik Furniture Design Competition that was organized by the Kuala Lumpur & Selangor Furniture Entrepreneur Association. Student Wong Sue Yin and Andrew Tan Yu-Chai also walked away with RM 2000 and RM 1000 recently in the Bedroom Furniture design category. The two students were ecstatic with their awards and credited their success to the practical based industry simulated assignments that they go through every day for their design lectures in KDU.

Aaron the Head for KDU's Centre of Design Excellence was also pleased with his academic team and student's recent success as it is sweet reward for the hard work that the lecturers and students had put in for the exhibition and competition.

Always one step ahead with a flare to go beyond the ordinary, our recent success once again shows the quality of our design graduates and how they stack up with industry standards.
