It provides a unique platform for students and researchers to share their experience and views in their latest research and breakthroughs. It is created upon the idea of promoting Asia Pacific as the center of Electrical and Electronics excellence in this region and to prompt the research development activities amongst student researches.

IEEE SCOReD 2014 is the biggest event organised by IEEE Malaysia Section, USM IEEE Student Branch and the School of Electrical and Eletronic Engineering from University Science Malaysia in 2014. Collaboration between USM IEEE Student Branch undergraduates and lectures and professors from the university itself, this main conference is to provide a unique platform for students and researchers to share their experience and views in their latest research and breakthroughs.

Before the event itself, the promo video and the designation of the poster was created to promote the IEEE SCOReD 2014 to the public.
