FIST MMU achieved a Gold Medal award at the 25th International Invention, Innovation & Technology Exhibition (ITEX). ITEX is an annual
exhibition organised by MINDS (Malaysian Invention & Design Society) to provide a platform for local and international inventors and research scientists to present
their inventions and innovations to a business community keen on commercialising unique inventions.
The project titled "Intelligent Narrator for Real-Time News Websites", led by Dr. Wee Kuok Kwee is an innovative narrator application for users to listen to news on

people with vision impairment.
