About Conference

We are pleased to inform that Student Representative Council of KDU University College Penang will be organizing its 4th International Student Conference on 25th – 27th September 2017 at Auditorium, KDU University College Penang.

The ISC had brought together students from all over the world, corporate leaders, academic leaders and future transformers in the past conferences to deliberate on the topic of leadership. However, this year, the ISC committee would like to bring a twist into its conference by not only deliberating on the topic of leadership, but also to expose students to be creative and innovative in their ideas.

Creativity and innovation is an interlink word whereby creativity is about generating new ideas while innovation is about implementing these ideas successfully. Corporate leaders note the importance of dependence on innovation as key to corporate sustainability. We all know that being creative and innovative is important to land on a prominent position or leads an organization to success, however, not all knew how to be creative or innovative.

Therefore, in this conference, we would like to have the experts to share their views in being creative and innovative. The ISC would like to expose students to a much buzz about - TRIZ problem solving methodology, and how it’s creatively applied into the industry, as well as to stimulate students’ minds on the possibilities or ways of starting up their own business at a young age.

This conference will be held for 3 days, which includes talks by prominent speakers sharing their valuable experiences and knowledge with the participants on the first two days, followed by workshops, teambuilding activity. A full day Penang tour on the last day of this 3 day conference for all participants will be held to promote Penang as an education tourism hub.
