Our alumnus Mr. Francis Emang Ajeng relishes every opportunity to contribute to the betterment of society. During the recent interview with our team members, it became clear that his passion for excellence is the driving force behind his dedication and motivation to achieve his personal and career goals.
Based in Kuching, Francis is currently a Senior Technician (2D & 3D Mapping) at Sarawak Energy Berhad, an energy utility wholly-owned by the Sarawak State Government. Its core business comprises the generation, transmission, distribution and retail of electricity. Commenting on his duties and responsibilities, he highlighted, ‘In my capacity as a Senior Mapping Technician, I generate various elevation models such as Digital Elevation Models (DEM), Digital Surface Models (DSM) and Digital Terrain Models (DTM). From various data sources, I also produce Orthophoto Maps and 3-D models of the various hydroelectric dams in Sarawak. These activities contribute to our overall planning process, for example, location of new overhead lines, underground cables, maintenance of the hydroelectric dams, etc. I am honoured to be part of a team that works with various stakeholders to achieve the noble objective of full electrification for Sarawak by 2025.’
