On 26 January 2022, a webinar was organized by the School of Electrical Engineering, College of Engineering, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Shah Alam entitled “High Voltage Engineering: From Theory to Practice”. The webinar was conducted over the Webex online platform with Associate Professor Ir Ts Dr Azrul Mohd Ariffin from Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) as the invited speaker, who is also an Executive Committee for IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) Malaysia Chapter. This program was aimed to give insights into the fundamentals of high voltage engineering and its applications in the real world. Around 33 participants joined the webinar, mostly third-year Electrical Engineering students taking the High Voltage course. The webinar also served as a platform for DEIS to promote the society and its activities, in order to encourage more membership from students and those interested in the areas of dielectrics and electrical insulation for high voltage applications. It is hoped that more programs of this nature can be organized in the future.
