Introduction 

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.

2-Day Intensive Workshop on Submission for accreditation

Event Type: 
Workshop
Event Category: 
Professional Management
Date: 
Jun 17 2014 - Jun 18 2014
Venue: 
Marriott Hotel, Putrajaya
Organized By: 
Malaysian Society for Engineering & Technology (MySET) & Malaysia-Japan International Institute of Technology (MJIIT-UTM)

Background
 
This is a joint workshop organized by the Malaysian Society for Engineering & Technology (MySET) and the Malaysian Japan International Institute of Technology (MJIIT-UTM). Submission is an important component for accreditation of engineer- ing programmes by institutions of higher learning. The self assessment report is meant to provide the EAC evaluators with a detailed account of the programme, covering curriculum, staff, students, facilities and management system. A poor self-assessment report creates unnecessary stress and confusion on the day of accreditation whereas a well written report evaluating the programme critically will not only serve the institution as a reference document of the programme status but also ease the process of accreditation. The workshop will dwell on the strength and weakness of self assessment reports and give the opportunity for participants to be involved in writing such reports.

Pelan tindakan jelas diperlukan industri robotik: MYRAIG

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia mesti mengambil langkah berani dan bersepadu untuk membangunkan dan meningkatkan industri robotik dan automasinya dengan merangka pelan induk jelas yang diselaraskan oleh kerajaan dan industri dengan baik bagi mengelak negara daripada ketinggalan.

Pengerusi Kumpulan Kepentingan Automasi dan Robotik Malaysia (MYRAIG), Profesor Dr Ishkandar Baharin, berkata cabaran utama ialah kurangnya persatuan industri robotik yang kukuh, tidak seperti negara maju yang mempunyai sumber robotik yang kukuh dan berkesan serta otpimum. "Kami kini aktif mengumpul maklum balas daripada pelbagai penggiat industri robotik dan automasi dan pembuat keputusan bagi membantu membangunkan kerangka kerja dan pelan tindakan robotik dan automasi nasional untuk Malaysia. "Eropah, Amerika Syarikat, Korea dan Jepun cemerlang dalam bidang ini memandangkan mereka menyelaraskan usaha kerajaan, industri dan akademik dalam membangunkan industri menerusi pelan induk yang jelas yang dipantau oleh pelabur dan institusi kewangan," katanya dalam ucapan pembukaan pada Persidangan Robotik Asia 2012 di sini, hari ini.

Persidangan sehari itu yang dilancarkan Timbalan Menteri Sains, Teknologi dan Inovasi, Datuk Fadillah Yusof bermatlamat menjadi landasan untuk semua penggiat yang terbabit dalam industri robotik dan automasi di Malaysia bersatu untuk merangka Pelan Tindakan Robotik dan Auromasi Malaysia.

"Menerusi persidangan ini, kumpulan kerja akan dibentuk untuk merancang agenda strategi robotik nasional. Peserta dalam bengkel ini akan membentuk kumpulan teknologi Robotik Malaysia.

"Mereka terdiri daripada profesional teras yang akan diperakui sebagai pemimpin robotik dan automasi yang akan menyumbang kepada pelan tindakan robotik dan automasi pertama Malaysia yang akan menjadi pelan tindakan nasional untuk meneraju inovasi industri menerusi teknologi robotik dan automasi," kata Ishkandar. Beliau berkata, berdasarkan perspektif industri, MYRAIG melihat dari sudut visi produk untuk keperluan aplikasi dan daripada sains asas kepada pencapaian teknologi.

"Kami berminat mewujudkan rangkaian kelompok robotik dan automasi yang membabitkan semua pihak bagi membincangkan agensi nasional dan bagaimana menjajarkan sektor itu dengan program transformasi ekonomi kerajaan," katanya.

MYRAIG, sebuah kumpulan Persatuan Malaysia bagi Kejuruteraan dan Teknologi bergabung dengan Persekutuan Antarabangsa Robotik yang berpangkalan di Jerman dan Persatuan robotik Korea dan Jepun, dengan mensasarkan untuk membantu membangunkan kerangka kerja yang diperlukan bagi meletakkan Malaysia sebagai hab Asia bagi robotik dan automasi.

Climate In Malaysia Getting Worse - MSET

 

PUTRAJAYA, April 9 (Bernama) -- At present, Malaysia might be considered a safe country, free from most natural disasters, but that might not be the case for very long.

 

Malaysian Society for Engineering and Technology (mSET) Pesident Prof Datuk Abang Ali said that due to his concern, the NGO would be organized a Regional Symposium on Engineering and Technology 2011 in November in Kuching.

 

"Whether we like it or not, the situation in Malaysia is getting worse. Earlier we used to talk about simple flooding; now it's more serious flooding. Before we talk about light rain, now we have very heavy thunderstorms that are not only capabale of causing floods, but can also result in serious landsilides.

 

"And we are alking about other disasters such as earthquakes. Even if it was an earthquake of low or medium intensity, it could affect us is terms of the structure and integrity of our buildings and the infrastructure of the country because most the buildings n Malaysia are not designed for any type of earthquake," he told reporters after the opening of the National Engineering and Technology Convention 2011 (NETC 2011) here Satuarday.

 

mSET: Govt Should Consult Public And NGOs On Nuclear Energy

 

PUTRAJAYA -- The government should consult the public and professional non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in the country regarding its plan to develop nuclear energy, Malaysian Society for Engineering and Technology (mSET) President Prof Abang Abdullah Abang Ali said today.

He stressed the importance of both the public and NGOs being consulted as the technology would affect them and impact their safety, immediately and in the future.

Is Malaysia in danger

 

EARTHQUAKES appear to be occurring with increasing frequency, and they seem to be coming closer to Malaysia. Are we in any danger? This question was on the minds of many Malaysians, especially after the two earthquakes in Myanmar and Bandung recently.

Just prior to that was the monster quake in Japan last month, which registered 9.0 on the Richter scale, and another last Thursday, registering 7.4.


On April 5 alone, 67 earthquakes were recorded all over the world, from Alaska right across the globe to the Solomon Islands with moderate magnitudes ranging from 2.5 to 6 on the Richter scale.


Experts said seismic activity in the ear th’s crust happened every day in varying degrees of intensity and Malaysia, although not in the Pacific Ring of Fire danger zone, “was not immune to it”.
