The visit was organised by Center of Communication Engineering Studies (CECES) of FKE. TDU was represented by Prof. Dr. Hiroshi Yasuda, President of TDU, and Prof. Dr. Takehiko Kobayashi, Director of International Center of TDU.
Prior to the signing ceremony, TDU delegates visited UITM's Vice Chancellor office, where a short discussion was held with Prof. Emeritus Dato' Dr. Hassan Said, the Vice Chancellor of UITM. After the short meeting, both parties signed the MoU in a ceremony held at the Chancellery Building. This MoU is hoped to strengthen, promote and develop international and research cooperation between the parties in terms of promoting institutional exchanges between faculty and staff, starting-off with joint research in Microwave Engineering and Information Engineering. Other areas of cooperation includes promotion of undergraduate and graduate students exchange, co-organization of symposium, conferences, short courses and meetings on research related issues. At the same event, we also had the privilege to organize a special lecture from the President of TDU, Prof. Dr. Hiroshi Yasuda, entitled "Future Prospects in the Era of Web 3.0".
