Conference: The 8th CUTSE International Conference in Miri, Sarawak (3-4 December 2013)

CUTSE International Conference

The 8th CUTSE International Conference will be held in Curtin University, Sarawak Campus; Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia. The theme for this year’s conference will be “Science, Sustainability, and Solutions.”

The CUTSE International Conference provides a platform to disseminate knowledge and information on recent innovations and practices in engineering and sciences to all. In particular, the focus will be on finding eco-friendly and sustainable solutions to problems across all areas. The conference aims to create a space for constructive dialogues on concepts, ideas and technology. This annual conference dates back to 2006 when the first Curtin University of Technology Science and Engineering Conference was held in Miri.

The CUTSE International Conference is an excellent avenue for researchers, engineers, scientists, academicians, professionals from industry and students to share their research findings and initiate further collaborations in their respective fields. Parallel sessions in Mechanical, Electrical, Computer, Civil and Chemical engineering as well as the sciences will be hosted over a period of two days. Each year, the conference attracts participation from a number of countries in addition to Malaysia and Australia. In addition, student participants will get the opportunity to present their research projects and gain valuable feedback from industry professionals.

This year the Conference will be organised by the Department of Science and Foundation of Curtin Sarawak’s School of Engineering and Science in collaboration with The Institute of Engineers Malaysia, Miri Branch.
