The Korean Association for Innovative Engineering Education and Accreditation Board for Engineering Education of Korea (ABEEK) is hosting the 2013 Engineering Education Festa in Busan, Korea.  As part of this multi event program, a Capstone Design competition among undergraduates will be held. Capstone Design Fair is one of core programs of E2 Festa 2013, where over 350 outstanding capstone design works from 90 universities are put up for exhibition.  In particular, International Session will be held in parallel with Capstone Design Fair, where foreign universities’ works of excellence are invited for boosting globalization of engineering education.

A limited number of places at the competition is open for international participants, where the non-Korean universities identified must be recommended by one of the 5 Korean Innovative Engineering Education hubs.

The Pusan National University(PNU) Innovative Engineering Education Hub (which has close relations with Centre of Engineering Education, CEE) has invited UTM to submit an entry for the competition.  The economy flight ticket and accommodation for 3 nights for the student chosen for the competition will be sponsored by the PNU Hub.

We would like to invite all Deans of engineering to send me possible entries from students.We can also submit a product from student’s Final Year Project (FYP) or other student projects, especially those from the final year. Only one student will be selected to represent UTM in this competition.
