Celebrating research, PECIPTA rolls in again. With pleasure Universiti Teknologi MARA would like to announce that it is hosting PECIPTA 2011 which will take place at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, 13-15 September 2011. Aiming for a rich harvest of research, innovation and inventions, for the past ten years the Ministry of Higher Education has sponsored and organised PECIPTA for public institutions of higher learning every two years. Held for the first time in 2001, the exposition was hosted by University Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). It followed by Universiti Putra Malaysia (2003), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (2005), Universiti Sains Malaysia (2007) and University of Malaya (2009).
Believing that anyone can be an inventor, Universiti Teknologi MARA is opening a window to the young minds in colleges and schools. PECIPTA 2011 is offering a new competition category, a Junior Inventor Category, trusting that this new category will invigorate budding minds to invent. Apart from exhibiting research, PECIPTA 2011 plans to hold a Intelligent Car Model Competition.
