We proudly present the first proceeding of civil engineering research work by our final year students in the Faculty of Civil Engineering at University Teknologi Malaysia in session 2015/2016. These students had undergone two semesters of final year project where literature reviews were carried out and proposals were prepared during the first semester while the research projects were executed and final year project reports were written up during the second semester. Each of the completed research project was presented by the student before a panel of presentation that consisted of academic staff that are well versed in the particular research area together with a representative from the industry. The final year project presentation that was held on the 7th to 8th June 2016 allowed the dissemination of knowledge and results in theory, methodology and application on the different fields of civil engineering among the audience and served as a platform where any vague knowledge was clarified and any misunderstood theories, procedures and interpretation of the research works were corrected.
All accepted technical papers have been submitted to peer-review by a panel of expert referees, and selected based on originality, significance and clarity for the purpose of the proceeding. The quality of these technical papers ranged from good to excellent, illustrating the experience and training of the young researchers. We sincerely hope that the proceeding provides a broad overview of the latest research results on related fields. The articles of the proceeding are published in three volumes and are organized in broad categories as follows:
|1ST PROCEEDING OF CIVIL ENGINEERING||2ND PROCEEDING OF CIVIL ENGINEERING|
The review process was owing to the educational nature of the proceeding. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the Technical Proceeding Committee members for their hard work, precious time and endeavor preparing for the proceeding. Last but not least, we would like to thank each and every contributing final year project students for their efforts and academic staff who serve as supervisors for their support for this proceeding.
