Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) has grown to be one of the most prominent private universities in Malaysia and has attained prestigious national and international recognitions in less than two decades since it was established in 1997. UTP offers a wide range of industry-relevant engineering, science and technology programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and aims to produce well-rounded graduates with excellent leadership qualities and communication abilities. For these reasons, the Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineers UTP Student Branch (IEEE UTP SB) was established to be a platform for students in building network locally and globally by sharing new ideas and information.
IEEE is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community through IEEE’s highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, professional and educational activities. Therefore, the IEEE International Advanced Robotic Competition 2017 is proposed to fulfill its aim.
The Robotic Fiesta Malaysia 2016 held in UTP has successfully attracted around 1000 participants across Malaysia and it was the biggest robotics related event in Malaysia last year involving primary and secondary school children, college students, university undergraduate students, postgraduate students, researchers and academicians. This year, the spirit shall continue to provide the platform for Malaysians to showcase their knowledge and skills in robotics.
IEEE International Advanced Robotic Competition 2017 will be a collaboration among IEEE Student Branches in Malaysia Section to practice networking and has been proposed during the IEEE Student Branch Leadership Camp held on 11th March 2017. Each department of the event can be assigned to different universities’ student branch and led by UTP SB while the rules and regulations of the robotic competition will be set by Dr Irraivan A/L Elamvazuthi, Associate Professor in UTP and Executive Committee of IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS).
