”Conclusion”

YIC 2016 was a huge success. We had attracted some multiracial teams from various parts of Malaysia although more improvement needed here. We had received 204 proposals but only 80 teams were selected. From the 80 teams selected, 67 teams participated in the Grand Finale after 13 teams had pulled out of the last moment

Our survey shows great female participation and a high satisfactory level of all of our Stakeholders. We believe that this program can be a platform for young creative and inventive students to showcase their talent and possibly build  their career in this area.
