Shout Out – Talk on Microfluidic Technology: Theory and How It Can Transform Industrial Practice


This is a shout out for the IEM. My Technical Division will be  hosting a talk on the 12th August, 2015, by Dr Jitkai Chin. It’ll be at 5:30 pm  (makan-makan at 5:00).

Since microfluidic technology was introduced nearly two decades ago, it has attracted attention from researchers around the world because of its unique features of miniaturisation – reduced raw material consumption and waste generated, large surface area to volume ratio and etc. In recent years, the technology has been introduced and adapted by pharmaceutical and food industries to improve product quality and energy efficiency. In this talk, the important theories of microfluidic technology will be introduced with examples of application. The talk is suitable for chemical engineers, mechanical engineers as well as electrical and electronic engineers.

This talk intends to raise awareness of participants on the increasing importance of CFD in the oil and gas industry. This is achieved by sharing real life examples of CFD applications in Malaysia and how it helped companies in understanding process and equipment issues and assisted them in making sound engineering decisions.

 

Dr Jitkai Chin obtained his BEng (Hons) in Chemical and Process Engineering with Biotechnology and PhD from Department of Chemical and Process Engineering, University of the Sheffield, UK in 2001 and 2007 respectively. He was appointed Assistant Professor in University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus in 2007. He was then promoted to Associate Professor in 2011 with 15 ranking international journal papers and awards behind him. His research interests including the droplet microfluidics, microthrusters, propellants and graphene.
