The 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak is declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organization. This chapter presents a simplified approach of the 2019-nCoV outbreak in Malaysia, based on a simple mathematical model and limited reference data. The profound model predictions is based on the actual data on the date of confirmation excluding deaths, considering the recovered will have the possibility to get infected again. The 14 days incubation characteristics are used in the computations as pronounced by CDC to improve the prediction characteristics. This includes the four stages of recovery characteristics in any pandemic cases towards cluster segregation, contact tracing towards flattening the growth curve. The model from china was taken as reference and the Malaysian recovery phase analyses and compared with the measures in place. The computational approach for the dataset available is presented and the similarity measure is a good reference point in handling the pandemic of this size in future. © 2022, Institute of Technology PETRONAS Sdn Bhd.

Engineering curriculum primarily relies on the execution of learning strategy in knowledge skill and psychomotor skill. The COVID19 scenario forces a rethinking stochastic approach needed to continue run the courses without compromising the outcomes as agreed and endorsed by the various stakeholders. This work proposes a way in which the engagement of students and curriculum can be approached in the future through a stochastic approach using design thinking strategy. CODE is a design thinking approach used in the alternative shift in running curriculum due to the shift in the full digital mode of operation due the closed down of physical institutions place of learning. The framework, the key components, and the tracking of the performance to align the set outcomes are presented. Analysis on a sample core module from the engineering specific with action plan strategy over a semester is presented with reflections and effectiveness through on the programme outcomes reflections. © 2022, Institute of Technology PETRONAS Sdn Bhd.
