PIC: Mechanical Engineering team members during the quiz
The Mechanical Engineering Students team was on Friday, June 7, crowned champions during a quiz, which was organized by Join The Idea (JTI) Leaf Company for the four engineering departments that participated.

The quiz whose aim was to encourage students to study hard and also be conversant with simple details of engineering, had teams from Civil, Electrical, Mining and the winners Mechanical engineering.

The Mechanical team which comprised of Francis Salimu, Dumisani Nkhata, Henry Kumwenda and Daniel Banda, each went away with a t-shirt, mug, pen and a power bank while the Mining team which came second received mugs each.

Speaking during the quiz, the Talent Development Manager for JTI Leaf Malawi, Mpho Bwanali said; “ much as it is part of marketing strategy in publicizing the brand, it is also part of interacting with University students because in the years to come they will be part of the corporate world.”

A third year Bachelor of Geological Engineering student Fedson Mwadala who was the Quiz Master explained that this was a pleasurable experience.

“Apart from the whole thing being fun, the competition brought together engineering students from different departments which showed that there is a good cooperation among them,” Mwadala said.

The Chairperson for the event Chikumbutso Walani thanked the JTI team for bringing this quiz to the Polytechnic. He further wishes that many companies should follow suit because these kinds of competitions are imperative for they keep students on their toes.
