Circuits and Systems Society Malaysia


CAS Networking Visit

There exist 25 IEEE CASS chapters in Asia-Pacific (Region 10) countries.

According to the annual report, the chapters in the region keep a good activity level in average. The objective of this program is to make networks between/among chapters in different Asia-Pacific countries in order to raise the activity level of all the chapters in this region.

In this year, CASS Malaysia has been selected as one of the 8 chapters in R10, whose representatives and student members visit other chapters in different R10 countries, and awarded USD 1,000 as a part of the travel costs.

As part of this program, CASS Malaysia hosted a visit from CASS Singapore at Universiti Putra Malaysia and Universiti Teknologi Petronas from 24th – 25th October 2013. CASS Malaysia representatives also visited CASS Indonesia representatives on the 21st November 2013 at Institut Teknologi Bandung.

During both visits, exchange of chapter’s activity was performed and followed by discussions on possible future collaboration between the chapters (joint technical workshop, joint IEEESB activities, joint summer school, student exchange, etc.)
