The Internship : University Of Pannonia, Hungary

The lucky 4 =)

It's been a while since the last post. It was 2 semester back because now I am having my Industrial Training until September.(For 8 months tho =.=) By the way, why the lucky 4? I bet no one ever applied for the same company/institution with their very best friend and they got it. (Sponsored some more :p). Yet, these 4 musketeers are damn lucky to fly all the way to Hungary to have their Internship. Being labeled as nerd dudes by some colic in UTP, perhaps is the main reason why we fly to Budapest(?) to do some researches in University Of Pannonia. LOL! 
In UTP, the students need to finish their "Practical" for 8 months, which divides  the first 4 months for training and another 4 months for an assigned  project by the Supervisor . We are doing the projects by pair with different topics and scopes of study. Surprisingly, we are under the MUSZAKI INFORMATIKAI KAR = Information and Computerization Department. In short, we are dealing with the optimization of certain processes in  Chemical Engineering field/industry. The topics are : 

Seri and I  = The Heat Integration Analysis of Refined Bleached Deodorized Bleached Palm Oil (RBDPO) process. 
Mira and Azreen = The use of P-Graph in Oil Palm Mill and supply chain ( will be verified later)

Prof  Dr Jiri Klemes, our supervisor is a well known publisher of several research papers worldwide, marking the high level of knowledge and education he has. Hence, to carry on something 'small' under his supervision (?) , you should have a daydream. The major challenges is not just the scope of study but also the expectations of the Supervisor himself. At first, "they" thought" we are doing Phd in Hungary. Oh! We are not there yet. Not to mention here they put high trust in us. 

Lecture notes during training period
During the first 4 months, we were asked to attend lectures regarding Heat Integration to embrace more regarding what to focus later in conducting the projects. 

University : View from the 9th floor
Our 'office' is situated behind the main block( administration block). Floor 9- room no (911) err.

Dr Petar Varbanov : Bulgarian Co-Supervisor 
With the absence of our Supervisor, Dr Petar will "take over".

Xia Lu, Jun : Chinese Phd Students
These 2 'ge ge' and 'cie cie' help us a lot during our internship here.  

Prof Jiri Klemes : Supervisor
He acts as a father to us, and he is so welcoming and generous person as an academician (because academician are usually cold to people! hahaha)

SIT Presentation by me : Total Sites Analysis
During the training period, we need to present what we have learnt so far and 'this' will be bring forward in the project. Feel blessed(?) when  our presentation are attended by UTP RIO Vice Chancellor , Prof Dr Rashid. and assessed by both UTP  and  University Of Pannonia's supervisors. 
Lunch Date, from left below : Prof Rashid, Prof Jiri, Prof Suzana, Dr Sharin and Xia

 I am eating with the Prof(s), so can you feel the awkwardness? O.O

Attending several functions of the University, Dinner and etc. 

and now I'm struggling to finish my project. I have less than  2 months to really 'graduate' from the Internship period. I can never forget this moment in my life as it is considered as my high level achievements in my Academic area after my Gold medal in SEDEX (Science and Engineering Design Exhibition) last 30 weeks ^^. Hope that I can get benefit from this, and I am aiming for the highest level which is to produce research paper(s) based on my upcoming projects (SIP, FYP, SEDEX , etc). 

"Have a good day people, live your life to the fullest!"  :)
