Aerospace engineering, which covers both aeronautical and astronautical fields, has always been the driving force for new development of technologies that are highly beneficial to humanity. From handheld calculators to non-stick pans, these are some examples of technologies that are initially developed to assist in space flight and have ultimately made their ways to improve the quality our daily life. It is therefore apt to say that aerospace engineering field goes beyond the scope of just developing aircraft and spacecraft, but it is also inspiring better ways for us to live our life on this planet. This makes aerospace engineering in a class of its own.
In Malaysia, the aerospace industry has shown tremendous progress since the government came out with the first National Aerospace Blueprint (NAB) nearly 20 years ago. Today, evidences of this growth include the Malaysia International Aerospace Centre (MIAC) that houses over 150 local and international aerospace businesses, and the surge of investments from some of the world's largest multinational companies looking to establish and expand their operations across a growing network of local aerospace facilities. The Malaysia's Economic Transformation Plan further estimates that the local aerospace industry will be worth USD1 trillion by the year 2020.
A great element to ensure the accomplishment of the country's ambitions and goals for aerospace industry, as outlined in the latest national aerospace blueprint that will run up to year 2030, is the solid partnership between academia and industry. This is where AEROS Malaysia Society comes in, which is to provide a platform for collaboration between the two parties in developing and advancing new aerospace technologies. The society is also an avenue of opportunities for the professionals to further hone their skills and/or share their experiences to better up the quality of local aerospace workforce. In addition, the society plays a prominent role to inspire and encourage the interest and appreciation of aerospace knowledge and research among students, academicians and the general public as a whole.
It is our big optimism that the establishment of AEROS Malaysia Society will benefit the country in its aspiration to become a major player in the world's aerospace industry and contribute towards the advancement of knowledge in aerospace studies. I sincerely welcome you to join us in this journey and together, we can make our strides toward greater heights.
