ICSEAT 2022: SEGi hosts global gathering of engineers, researchers on building a sustainable world

IN a world that is constantly changing, believe it or not, engineers are the ones behind much of these changes.

The majority of today’s products and services have been conceptualised using some elements of engineering, which subsequently contributed to the comfort and convenience of the people influenced by them.

In the current technologically advanced era, engineers use innovation, creativity, and a wealth of knowledge to develop solutions to the world’s biggest technical issues.

Understanding the fact that many industries have broken away from their dependence on traditional manpower and embraced mechanisation, automation, digitalisation, and artificial intelligence (AI) to increase efficiency, SEGi University & Colleges recently hosted the International Conference on Sustainable Engineering & Advanced Technology (ICSEAT 2022).

Held virtually on July16–17, ICSEAT 2022 aimed to provide a platform for engineers and researchers to share their experiences and research findings via presentations and publications, in addition to providing possible solutions to the current issues faced by the various industries.

Led by SEGi’s Faculty of Engineering, Built Environment & Information Technology (FoEBEIT), the two-day event gathered approximately 100 bright minds and talented researchers worldwide from the United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, China, Poland, Indonesia, Bulgaria, Vietnam, India, and Malaysia.

Participants from around the world exchanged latest research ideas in sustainable development, green technology, advanced material, processing research, computational modelling, and data analytics.

It also allowed them to network and find collaborative partners.

“This is the faculty’s first time organising such a monumental conference. We hope that ICSEAT can spark brilliant and sustainable solutions for the current issues faced by industries,” said SEGi University Deputy Dean (Research) of FOEBEIT Dr Chan Mieow Kee who also served as the chairperson of ICSEAT 2022.

SEGi invited several well-reputed professors with extensive research profiles, such as Prof Chung Keng Huat from Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology, China; Prof Akihiko Nakayama from Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman, Malaysia; and Prof Shanmugavadivu from The Gandhigram Rural Institute, India to highlight the insights of Net-Zero Emissions, Artificial Intelligence, and Hydraulics, respectively in the context of sustainable development.

Academians like John Chng, Fitria Setyawati, Paavithraa Palanisamy, Tan Wei Yang, Lim Jeng Jit, Rameshwari P., and Assistant Prof Balamurali R. T. were named the best presenters of the sessions.

“We would also like to express our utmost gratitude to co-organisers, University of Sunderland, UK; Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy & Bioprocess Technology (QIBEBT), China; Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman and Curtin University, Malaysia and The Gandhigram Rural Institute, India, for their contributions and we feel grateful to the organising committees and reviewers for making this conference a successful event,” Chan added.

As one of the leading higher education institutions in Malaysia, SEGi has achieved 45 years of excellence in providing quality education within reach of willing minds and natural talents.

SEGi’s dedication and commitment to its brand promise “The Best In You, Made Possible” have received global recognition.

Most notably, SEGi University has been awarded the overall QS 5 Stars Plus rating in the QS World University Rankings 2022. SEGi University is recognised as the overall outstanding QS 5 Stars Plus University status for attaining the QS 5 Stars rating in eight evaluations: Teaching, Internalisation, Online Learning, Arts & Culture, Employability, Academic Development, Inclusiveness, and Specialist Criteria: Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS).
