The Great Lab (TGL) is an initiative by CREST to introduce students to the Electrical & Electronics (E&E) industry and on top of the summer workshop, there is also TGL Industry Challenge which consists of real industry problems. Students will work in a team to prepare technical proposals for the industry challenge and present the ideas to the panel of judges from the industry such as Intel, Altera, Vitrox, and UST Global.
Enough on TGL, a little introduction about CREST.
CREST stands for Collaborative Research in Engineering, Science, & Technology and it was formed as the catalyst for Malaysia's E&E. CREST will accelerate Malaysia's economic growth by creating a vibrant R&D ecosystem for E&E industry, and bring together Industry-Academia for collaborative R&D.
