Welcome from the Chair

Welcome from the Conference Chairs

Welcome to "3rd International Materials, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering Conference". This international conference is intended to facilitate both publishing and networking. It aims to be the platform for information dissemination, gathering and networking for academia, researchers, and engineers or professionals within the area of Materials Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and Manufacturing Engineering. Considering the complexity and multidisciplinary nature of engineering problems, we would also like to extend this invitation to those working/researching/studying on related fields.
In previous series, MIMEC saw participation of over 300 submissions from 37 countries across 5 continents. This time, the conference goes to Penang, Malaysia. This conference is organized still with the intention to be unique, effective, affordable, and memorable to you. Hopefully you will enjoy and benefit from your participation in this conference, as presenter (both orally or by posters), exhibitors, and sponsors.
