Membership drive (November 2017)

In conjunction with the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) Distinguished Lecturer Programme (DLP) on 7th November 2017 at the Institute of High Voltage and High Current, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Johor Bahru, a DEIS booth was setup to promote the DEIS membership.

The main objectives of setting up the booth were to bring awareness to the public on the presence of the recently established IEEE DEIS Malaysia Chapter, especially to the lecture attendees and to promote activities related to DEIS.

IEEE DEIS Malaysia Chapter was established in Malaysia in May 2015 with the aims to enhance networking and stimulate research and development in the field of dielectrics and electrical insulation in Malaysia. Its field of interest is in line with that of DEIS, i.e., the study and application of dielectric phenomena and behavior and the development, characterization and application of all gaseous, liquid and solid electrical insulating materials and systems utilized in electrical and electronic equipment. IEEE DEIS Malaysia Chapter hopes to promote the close cooperation and exchange of technical information among its members.

IEEE DEIS members will have the opportunity of networking with a large number of experts worldwide, sharing the results of their research activities and remain informed with the latest developments in their field. For more information, please visit: (IEEE DEIS Malaysia Chapter) (IEEE DEIS)
