The Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UNIMAP) and IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) Malaysia Chapter have jointly organised 2016 International Colloquium on Korean High-Tech Applications (ICKHA’16) on 9th April 2016 in Universiti Malaysia Perlis. The ICKHA’16 was organised as part of UniMAP Korean Week (UniKOW) activities held in UniMAP in 2016.

The main objective of ICKHA’16 is to serve as a platform to increase expertise and knowledge in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in line with the aspiration of the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE).

The colloquium was a strategic platform that has assembled industrial and academic experts from South Korea to form a high-impact industrial network in Malaysia. It has also become a platform for UniMAP and other public universities in Malaysia to jointly explore various possibilities in realising engineering and design technology and applications toward practical and commercial uses.

In ICKHA’16, research discussion was not focused on one or two disciplines only but covered all research fields in order to generate future cooperation among all research groups.

The outcome of this conference has provided opportunities for researchers and academics from public universities in Malaysia to do further studies in universities in South Korea and undergo industrial training there.
