INOS Enhances UAV Education with Terengganu Inc.

By Aidy M Muslim

A remarkable stride was achieved through the successful execution of the pioneering TI-BSas Aeronautics UAV In-School program, where INOS played a pivotal role as a supportive partner. Spearheaded by the esteemed Prof. Dr Aidy Mohamed Shawal, the initiative thrived with the invaluable expertise of the Remote Sensing INOS group.

The program, a collaborative effort with Terengganu Incorporated Sdn Bhd (Terengganu Inc.), marked a pivotal moment in education and technology. Terengganu Inc.’s generous contribution of RM45,000 kickstarted the initiative and reflected their commitment to advancing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, aligning with the spirit of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4.0).

Under the leadership of Terengganu Inc.’s CEO, Burhanuddin Hilmi, this endeavour aimed to empower students with practical knowledge and skills, fostering a generation ready to embrace the challenges of the modern world. Burhanuddin’s vision was to bridge the gap between academic learning and real-world application, thus strengthening the foundation for future careers and achievements.

The partnership between INOS and Terengganu Inc. resulted in the launch of the TI-BSas Aeronautics UAV In-School program. This program, spanning four years from 2023 to 2026, unfolded at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Bukit Sawa in Marang. The program’s core purpose was to provide a comprehensive educational platform for students centred around unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology.
