About National Geofest

The overall aim of the Geotechnical Engineering Festival (GEOFEST) is to encourage and support Malaysian Undergraduate  students to interact and advance their knowledge and understanding of geotechnics while giving them an opportunity to promote their own research and innovative developments.

This event is meant to serve as an “incubation engine” of continued research and development of future geotechnicians who will clearly be future leaders in the field. GEOFEST has been an annual UTHM event, dating back to its first event held in 2009.  The feedbacks from the past events show that the student enthusiasm to participate has been encouragingly overwhelming. Following helpful discussions with academic colleagues from other Malaysian higher education institutions (UTM, UPM, UNIMAS, UNIMAP, NDUM, UCTS and CIDB), it has been decided to launch the GEOFEST 2014 at National Level, and invite aspiring undergraduates to participate in this  prestigious event to be held this year in Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) that is the home for the Research Centre for Soft Soil (RECESS).
