Metallurgy field has been appointed as one of the critical research area by Malaysian government hence it has been prioritized under the Rancangan Malaysia ke-9 (RMK9). Metal applications are potential and given more opportunity compared with other materials. The equipments and technology that we have can be optimized and manipulated to explore the potential in this field. Realizing this fact, Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) is trying to gather all the expertise from industry, research center and university to discuss and explored the chances in expand the metallurgy study through suitable characterization method and analysis. The outcome of this efforts, it’s hoped that metallurgy course can be explored more intensively and action of collective efforts can be taken to brace the education course in Malaysia.
