Description:
Integration of engineering field requires hands-on training and experiences. In order to realize such attempt, Institute of Integrated Engineering (I2E) requires a working model to integrate three engineering fields in one project. Learning from the high water usage at Masjid Sultan Ibrahim UTHM which lead to high water bill, and the unutilized tubewell at Research Centre on Soft Soil (RECESS), a groundwater supply might be a solution to the issue. Due to high total dissolve solid (TDS) and salinity, a water filter system is also required. I2E has been collaborated with Preston GeoCEM Sdn Bhd (A spin-off company of UTHM) and researchers from Electrical, Mechanical and Civil background to complete this project. The system could be the showcase for the visitor especially main industrial players to see UTHM’s products
