APIE Camp in USM: mission completed!

The third APIE Camp took place from February 26 to March 1 at the Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) on Penang Island, Malaysia, marking USM as the third SOI Asia partner institution to host this event. The inaugural camp was hosted by Keio University in Japan, followed by the Institut Teknologi Bandung in Indonesia.

16 students from SOI Asia partner universities in Malaysia, Indonesia, and Japan put into practice what they have learned online, from the design of networks to DNS configuration and cloud computing. This time, the camp also welcomed the most significant number of female participants and staff, including 3 students and the camp lead, Dr. Yung-wey Chong, from USM.

A summary report of this camp is available on the APIE website. You can also see the camp highlights by watching the digest video below.
