The objective of the establishment of IEEE Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Subsection (IEEE KL Subsection) is to promote IEEE activities in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for technology advancement for humanity and environmental sustainability as well as addressing and sharing the common mission and vision of IEEE. Academic staff cum researchers of Razak Faculty of Technology and Informatics and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur Campus have initiated and established IEEE KL Subsection under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Ts. Norliza Mohd Noor. The Subsection is focused on solving socio-economic issues for the well-being of people and the planet. Nevertheless, the Subsection also adheres to tackle all the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in their own capacity and local manner.
.The initial idea of the IEEE KL Subsection was discussed and brainstormed by a group of like-minded people in 2020. Some of their planned activities for this year include STEM educational activities for the urban poor; tea-talks with Science, Technology, Innovation and Economics (STIE) policymakers; robotic competitions and many more. The IEEE KL Subsection was established on 20th February 2021 with these objectives in mind. During the first ExComm Meeting on 19th March 2021, the Chair mentioned the vision and mission of IEEE KL Subsection with a long-term goal to always keep activities attractive and relevant for the members.
To date, there are about 96 senior members, 151 members and 118 student members under the Subsection. Since the establishment of IEEE KL Subsection, it is supported by the public and private universities and major industries in the Kuala Lumpur vicinity. The Subsection welcomes collaboration with other Subsections and Sections. To reach the Subsection, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and visit the website: http://kl.ieeemy.org
