2nd Postgraduate Research Symposium on Mechanical Engineering (PRiSME2017) is jointly organized by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FKM) and Centre for Advanced Research on Energy (CARe), Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka. This symposium is officially hosted by the FKM Postgraduate Committee. The event will take place at Kampus Teknologi UTeM on 05 January 2017.


PRiSME provides an opportunity for graduate students to explore and share their research interests, under the guidance of a panel of distinguished experts in the field. The symposium has three primary objectives:

  1. To provide a platform for postgraduate students to share their research progress in a friendly environment.

  2. To provide opportunities for postgraduate students and participants to receive informal in-depth feedback through discussions, and to enable them to establish contact with other postgraduate students.

  3. To help students strategize about their research and dissertation, as well as publication of their research in peer-reviewed journals.

In accordance with our regulations for Annual Review of Postgraduate Research Students, attendance and presentation at the Symposium is COMPULSORY for ALL registered and full-time research students.
