The two-day event, which began on November 20 and will conclude today, was officially launched by the Minister of Communications, Pehin Orang Kaya Hamzah Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Abdullah.
The event is organised by the college as part of it activity to highlight and expose their projects whilst supporting the `Fund Raising Campaign’ by the Business School, which has been going on for six months since June to January 2011.
