ICIT 2022

Embracing Transformation and Innovation towards Sustainable Development Goals



Established as a technical university in 2002, Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) offers a variety of engineering- and technology-based technical programmes, including high-level Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET). Ranked as one of the best in Research and Innovation within the classifications of Malaysia Technical University Network (MTUN) and Non-Research University (Non RU), UMP is steadfastly committed to innovating and developing unique academic programmes through strategic international collaborations. A milestone of such innovation is UMP’s world class dual-degree engineering programme offered in collaboration with Germany’s Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences (HsKA) – now seen as the benchmark for other public institutions of higher learning in Malaysia. In the field of research, UMP collaborates with local industries to focus on industry-related applications. Such research collaboration enriches the teaching and learning modules at the university, while simultaneously promotes commercialization of research output and products.


Faculty of Computing (formerly known as Faculty of Computer Systems & Software Engineering) was established on 16 February 2002 to produce knowledgeable, high skilled and competitive graduates within the sphere of software engineering, system and computer network. At the beginning, the faculty had two fields which are Software Engineering and Networking. The faculty has also embarked on research and development activities in the area such as information systems, software engineering, computer systems, communication systems, graphic and multimedia technology to produce technologies that are relevant to the needs of industries. Currently, the faculty has four research groups which are Network & Security, Modeling & Simulation, Data Mining & Knowledge Management and Graphic & Image Processing to support university’s focus groups (Manufacturing & Automotive and Chemical & Biotechnology).

The faculty emphasizes on the development and growth of its students’ enrolment and graduates. Through high quality teaching (by completing specific quality outcome and generic skills), great laboratories facilities, proper and careful advising and numerous professional activities, our students have opportunity to excel in the classroom and laboratory session. In a personable atmosphere, the students become well prepared in the term of software engineering knowledge and technical skills. Thus, they are ready and confident to begin their professional career or further their studies. The faculty’s current planning is to be an ICT reference centre in Pahang to support the development of East Coast Economic Region (ECER), Malaysia. To realize this, many activities which involve industries and government sectors have been carried out.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology is a multidisciplinary professional engineering institution.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has more than 155,000 engineering and technology professionals in 148 countries.

IET members operate almost 100 Local Networks as well as 22 Technical Networks.

The IET was formed in March 2006 by a merger of the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) and the Institution of Incorporated Engineers (IIE).

This year, The ICIT 2022 Best Overall Paper Award : Certificate of Award & £100.00 specially sponsored by Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

Malaysia Board of Technologists (MBOT) was established as a professional body through a Technologists & Technicians Act 2015 (Act 768), to register and recognize Professional Technologist as well as Certified Technician as professionals.

MBOT gives Professional Recognition to Technologists and Technicians in related technology and technical fields.

In order to retain the number of TVET workforces growing in the industry, MBOT also assists in ensuring the quality of the profession is in line with the dynamic development of the current industry and current trends in manufacturing technologies include, among others, automation, Internet-of-things and cyber physical systems.

AMET is India’s first Maritime Deemed to be University for maritime-related education, training and research. With quality, commitment, knowledge and excellence as its cornerstones, AMET had a humble beginning in the year 1993. AMET’s uncompromising strides of excellence in the field of maritime education and training laced with its capacity to feed the global shipping industry with an unrivalled maritime human resource secured it the status of becoming the first Deemed to be University in India for maritime education, training, research and development activities on the 21st August 2007. AMET serves as an ocean of knowledge for over 3000 students pursuing Programmes ranging from diploma to Doctoral programs through 7 schools and 2 intensive research and training centers for marine and marine-related activities. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) an autonomous institution of the University Grants Commission has assessed AMET and accredited with an A Grade in September 2021. Engineering and Management programs are accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA). For over two decades AMET remains the favorite destination for campus interviews by many shipping giants such as AP MOLLER MAERSK, GOODWOOD, NYK, SONANGOL, VSHIPS, WALLEMS, SHELL, CHEVRON, STENA and so goes a list of over 100 companies.

JESTEC (Journal of Engineering Science and Technology) is a peer-reviewed journal that aims to publish and disseminate original research articles on the latest developments in all fields of engineering science and technology. The journal publishes original papers in English, which contribute to understanding engineering science and improving engineering technology and education.

Wekerle Business School - as a prestigious educational institution - considers its mission to provide outstanding education within the Bologna system. Its aim is to create conditions for education that enhance the students’ academic and personal development by uniting high-level academic knowledge with practical education, based on corporate partnerships from outside the institution. In this global world, only by having a highly professional and open-minded education that incorporates a strong sense of ethics and responsibilities can one remain competitive. A WBS education while successfully integrating various cultures enables its students to rise to new challenges anywhere in the world, thus helping them to fulfill their true potential.
