From Light to Bytes: ASEAN Engineering Evolution and Future Challenges
In 1786, Captain Francis Light discovered George Town; a strategic occupation that acknowledged Penang’s natural resources, harbour and its potential for commerce and as a British command station. From a humble trading port, Penang has developed over two centuries into a vital, world-class hub for commerce, manufacturing, modernization, cultures and tourism that it is today. It has been dubbed the Silicon Valley of Southeast Asia, most livable and best city and a World Heritage Site. The iconic Penang Bridge was Southeast Asia’s longest in 1985 and Komtar Tower was Asia’s tallest building in 1986. Today exists an even longer Second Penang Bridge. Like other ASEAN big cities, Penang’s tremendous growth was in big part thanks to the huge number of engineers working diligently behind the scene. As key builders, engineers would continue to face up to the challenges of designing and constructing many future ASEAN “world cities.”
