We welcome you to the Second Undergraduate Research Conference (URC 2019) to be held on May 12, 2019 at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Johor Bahru. URC2019 is an excellent platform to showcase research works carried out by our final year undergraduate students and provide a means for them to interact with other students from different discipline. This is to nurture their social and interpersonal skills and also to help them to be creative and critical and thenceforth prepare them to be balanced and holistic graduates.

For this inaugural conference, 140 students from 10 programmes of 6 schools/faculties have submitted their papers. These papers will be presented as posters and will be evaluated by panels from academia and the industry.

The success of this conference is the efforts of many parties. I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the members of the Conference Secretariat, Technical and Program Committee, internal reviewers for their hard work in reviewing submissions and the panellists involved in judging. Finally, the URC 2019 would not be possible without the excellent papers contributed by authors. We thank all the authors for their contributions and their participation in URC 2019.

We hope that this conference will stimulate undergraduate collaborative research of different disciplines not only in UTM, but also between universities in Malaysia in the future. Finally, we feel honoured and privileged to showcase the best recent developments in undergraduate research to you through this exciting program.
