Tronoh, 12 August: Universti Teknologi PETRONAS Research Paper Conference (URPC) is an annual event which was fully supported by Dr. Balbir Singh, Senior Manager of Academic Central Services (ACS) since 2010. With the renowned reputation gained, URPC was conducted for the second time and received overwhelming response from UTP students.
As the name suggests, URPC provides a golden opportunity for the undergraduate and foundation students to present their research on the particular field which they have chosen, to be evaluated by the invited judges. “Our committee team hope that this event will be the stepping ladder for UTP to be nationally, as well as internationally recognized and acknowledged as a capable hosting house for national conference that calls for paper,” said Hew Zhong Ying, the Project Manager of URPC 2011.
