Malaysian Society For Engineering and Technology (MSET)
Saturday, April 26, 2008
Dear guys, following is a message from the new Malaysian Society for Engineering and Technology (mSET). Personally, I haven't heard about this new organization before. My wife received a letter and information about mSET which as just formed. They are inviting new members to join them. After reading the letter, my first impression was .... is this something superior than IEM? Does it want to challenge IEM?
After reading, understanding and digesting few points inside the letter, it seems that mSET has a wider scope. It is more than just engineering. It covers science and technology as well. It has a lot of benefits and personally I may join this organization. One more thing that is very interesting to highlight is, the membership is not just for those who possess a degree, but also for technicians who want to establish them self professionally.
I tried to google mSET to get more information about this new organization, but it seems that the website is not yet available. Maybe, we have to wait for a while before they upload their website.
But, in the mean time, you can read the part of the letter that I have read. I'll provide more information and update about this as soon as it is made available. Check it out:

The website for mSET is www.mset.org.my
The society is meant for the engineering team. It also welcomes those in technology and science who support or affliated with engineering and technology. The society does not plan to challange the IEM but feels a society that embraces all those who are involved in the development of the nation would be in a position to provide appropriate support/advice. Professional status is also open to all as each category has its own strength and contributions.
