This achievement has placed USM as the national champion for the Chem-E-Car competition of 2012.

This year Chem-E-Car competition has marked a new record with the highest number of participating teams from 5 different countries. This scenario has resulted in a very challenging competition between the 34 participated groups. Nevertheless, Zeolite team from USM has managed to secure the 1st prize in car competition with its car stopped at a distance of 2 centimeter away from the predetermined destination, an outstanding result which is rarely being recorded in a Chem-E-Car competition. Whereas, the 2nd prize was also won by USM team Challengers with their car stopped at a distance of 12 centimeter away from the destination. Moreover, it is also worthwhile to mention that Challengers has also secured the 1st place in poster presentation.
