About the conference
The Second International Conference on Agricultural and Food Engineering (CAFEi2014) will be hosted by the Department of Process and Food Engineering and the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Universiti Putra Malaysia. This conference will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 1-3 December, 2014. Tentatively, it is in conjunction with the running of the Malaysia Agriculture, Horticulture and Agrotourism Exhibition (MAHA) 2014.
The main objective of CAFEi2014 is to provide a forum to present and discuss new trends in the area of Agricultural and Food Engineering, in line with the theme of the conference “New Trends Forward ”…
This conference will identify new trends, opportunities and challenges that are relevant to the Agricultural and Food Industry. It will be a venue for critical discussion, potential solutions and promotions of these new trends. With increasing demand, these exciting new trends will no doubt provide future solution for critical agricultural-and-food production and services. In addition, this conference will also highlight development in research and innovation in

The objective of the National Engineering & Technology Convention is to provide a platform for presentation and exchange of ideas and experiences amongst engineering and technology (E&T) professionals. This convention will update us on Engineering Failures in Malaysia.
This NETC2014 will discuss the causes and consequences of engineering failures and shares experiences in failures in Malaysia, leading to lessons to be learnt from the failures and ways to invistigate failures in the future.

The workshop is jointly organised by the Malaysian Society for Engineering & Technology (MySET) and Malaysia Japan International Institute of Technology (MJIIT-UTM). The Washington Accord at its meeting in June 2012 had evaluated all its signatories’ graduate attributes (programme outcomes), knowledge profile and complex problem solving according to its own statements, as part of the continual improvement process to standardization. As a result, all signatories including the Board of Engineers Malaysia/ Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) are expected to address those characteristics explicitly. The EAC as such had introduced the revised 2012 manual to address the issue explicitly. Although the issue of complex problem solving has been discussed at various workshops and seminars but not explicitly. This workshop will address complex problem solving with the expectation for institutions to apply the process and thereby also be prepared for accreditation by EAC.
