Visiting professor Dr. Hong-Yi Huang of the National Taipei University in Taiwan gave a week-long lecture series at the College of Engineering’s Electrical Electronics Computer Engineering (EECE) Department on July 4-8, 2016.
His lectures focused on emerging technologies in the integrated circuits (IC) design attended by the EECE students and faculty members, and students and faculty members from MSU-Marawi; La Salle University – Ozamiz; Mindanao University of Science and Technology – Cagayan de Oro; Xavier University; and University of Mindanao and high school students from the Philippine Science High School – Central Mindanao and Central Visayas campuses.
The participants were likewise updated on the latest in energy harvesting, biomedical circuits, spread spectrum technology, layout considerations, and techniques for a successful test chips.
Huang was the mentor of the COE Microelectronics faculty members of the Electronics Engineering who studied for their masters degrees at the National Taipei University in New Taipei City, Taiwan. Huang has 58 patents and published 39 papers in journals, and has delivered 85 international conference papers and 36 local conference papers.
Huang’s lectures at the COE were made possible through funding from the Engineering Research and Development for Technology (ERDT).
Dr. Eryk Dutkeiwicz, a visiting professor from Macquarie University, Australia recently concluded his month-long lecture series at the Electrical / Electronics / Computer Engineering (EECE) Department. This is Dutkeiwicz’s third visit to MSU-IIT.
Dutkeiwicz’s lectures focused mainly on Wireless Sensor Networks from June 22 to July 17, 2015. The attendees of the lectures comprised of Master of Science in Electrical Engineering students, Doctor of Engineering students and the EECE faculty members. The opening ceremony was held at the Conference Room at the College of Engineering on June 22, 2015 with COE Dean, Atty. Edgar Alan Donasco gracing the event.
The lecture series was composed of lectures and laboratory activities as well. The participants were able to gain new knowledge regarding wireless sensors, its networks and the corresponding applications.
Starting the first semester of school year 2015-2016, the EECE Department will open a new elective course regarding wireless sensor networks.
On July 17, 2015, a closing ceremony was held at the Microelectronics Lab (MicroLab), College of Engineering.
During the closing ceremony, the participants received their certificates of attendance while the EECE Department presented a plaque and a token to Dutkeiwicz who also donated to the EECE Department wireless sensor tools and equipment.
During his stay in MSU-IIT, Dutkeiwicz toured Iligan City and joined educational caravans to Cagayan de Oro City and Davao City with the EECE faculty members. He also visited Dahilayan in Bukidnon and some tourist spots in Surigao.
The said lecture series was made possible through the funding from the Engineering Research and Development for Technology (ERDT).
Dutkeiwicz is currently the Director of a multi-disciplinary Research Centre; the Macquarie University WiMed Research Centre that focuses on the development of medical implant technologies. He is also the Director of the Wireless Communications and Networking Laboratory researching 5G technologies.
Dutkiewicz has held visiting professorial appointments at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the City University of Hong Kong and Coventry University in the UK.
He is an author of over 170 research papers and has written several chapters for books. His professional activities in recent years included his participation on various International Steering Committees with the latest being the IEEE ICC 2014 and the IEEE WPMC 2014. He is the General Chair of BodyNets 2015 and IEEE VTC 2017-Spring in Sydney.
