Co-organizers :
Faculty of Computer Systems & Software Engineering (FSKKP), UMP
Faculty of Civil Engineering & Earth Resources (FKASA), UMP

Date : 05-06 August 2019 [Monday-Tuesday]
Time : 8.00 am – 5.00 pm
Venue : Computer Lab FSKKP, UMP Gambang


This is a beginner’s workshop on numerical programming using Finite Element Method via MATLAB. No prior knowledge on programming or numerical method is needed. The workshop will be led by Dr Ahmad Razin Zainal Abidin, the MSNM President and a senior lecturer in the School of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, UTM. He obtained his PhD from Imperial College, London in meshfree method, an alternative branch of numerical methods, apart from FEM, FVM, FDM and etc. He also teaches FEM as an elective course in UTM. He will be supported by other MSNM fellows who also have experiences in numerical programming.
