IEM Shout Out – 2017-07 Talk On Implementation of conceive-design-implement-operate (CDIO TM) framework for Chemical Engineering challenges

July 20, 2017

My technical division will be hosting a talk on the 26th July, 2017. It is worth 2 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The talk will be presented by Ir. Dr. Chong.

The conceive – design – implement – operate (CDIOTM) framework is implemented by educators to generate graduates, who are able to tackle complex engineering challenges. A set of 12 standards define this framework and how to implement it are useful for chemical engineers. Chemical engineers from the industry will be able to develop sustainable solutions using the structured framework. Several chemical engineering innovative projects are completed using the CDIOTM framework will be shared during the talk.

Medical Gas Piping System (MGPS) is required to deliver medical gasses supply to patients and surgical tools in hospitals. The medical gasses include oxygen, nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, Entonox, medical vacuum, anesthetic gas scavenging system, medical and surgical air. Since the gasses are delivered direct to patients the quality and reliability of the system is very important to ensure the live of the patients and the safety of the facilities.

Ir. Dr. Chong obtained his BEng (Hons) Chemical Engineering (Universiti Teknologi Malaysia) in 2007 and  PhD in Engineering from University of Nottingham. He also is a Chartered Engineer in UK and a Professional Engineer of Board of Engineers, Malaysia. He received President Award of Excellent from IEM for four consecutive years from 2013 to 2016. He also bagged the prestigious Vice Chancellor’s Award as ‘Taylor’s Most Cited Academic 2015’. His scholarly activities encompass leading research projects, spearheading academic collaboration with leading academic institution both in Malaysia and in the world. In his brief academic career, he published more than 50  international journals, conferences papers, technical bulletin/proceedings and book chapters. He is one of the CDIOTM leaders in Asia Region. His academic research interest is in the area of drying technology, energy, health and engineering education.

IEM Shout Out – 2017-08 Technical Visit to Yakult (M) Sdn Bhd

July 19, 2017

Yes, come and stock up before Hari Raya.

My technical division will be hosting a visit on the 19th August, 2017.

Yakult was born over 75 years ago and since then has been loved by 28 million of consumers overseas. However, in Malaysia, Yakult is still a young and growing company. Yakult Ace was launched here just a few years ago in 2004. Yakult (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Yakult Honsha, Japan. Yakult has committed millions of ringgit to establish and operate our one and only local factory in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan and our Head Office in Glenmarie, Shah Alam. Since then, we have opened branch offices in Johor Bahru, Melaka, Penang, Kuantan, Ipoh, Seremban and Kota Bharu. Yakult is a high quality probiotics in the form of a cultured milk drink. Yakult contains the probiotic bacteria “Lactobacillus casei Shirota” (also called the “Shirota strain”). With 30 billion live Shirota strain in each bottle, Yakult has among the highest concentrations of probiotics compared to other probiotics on the market (most probiotic drinks and supplements claim to contain at most 1 to 10 billion live probiotic bacteria per serving or per capsule). The Yakult factory was built specially with visitors in mind where the participants can view the whole production process and see how Yakult is being made and can even take a closer look at our bacteria using a microscope, enjoy fun and educational video shows, and sample some delicious, freshly-made Yakult.

IEM Shout Out – 2017-08 Precision Engineering For Higher Value-Added Industrial Products

July 5, 2017

My technical division will be hosting a half day seminar on the 5th August, 2017. It is worth 3 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Professor R. C. T. Lee.

In this seminar, we shall first emphasize the importance of industry to economy of a nation.  We will then point out that Taiwan is facing tough challenging from China and we must upgrade our industry to the “precision industry”.  By precision industry, we mean products in such an industry are of high specification.   In other words, ordinary turn key industries will not survive in Taiwan at all.  But, to reach the sophisticated state, we must build a solid foundation on basic industrial technologies.  These technologies include mixing and dispersing, separation and purification, machine design, electronic circuit design, material science, grinding technology, soldering technology, software, control and so on.  We will present many cases to show how these basic industrial technologies help us produce industrial products with high added values.

Professor R. C. T. Lee obtained his B. S. degree in electrical engineering from the National Taiwan University in 1961, M. S, degree in electrical engineering from University of California at Berkeley in 1963 and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and computer science, also from U. C. Berkeley in 1967.  He worked in National Institutes of Health and Naval Research Laboratory in U.S.A. from 1967 to 1975. He returned to Taiwan in 1975 and was appointed a professor in the National Tsing Hua University.  Later, he was the President of Providence University as well as the President of National Chi-nan University.  Professor Lee formally retired in 2007.  Then he served as a senior adviser of the President for seven years.  He managed to persuade the Taiwanese government to pay attention to the basic industrial technologies, founded the Taiwan Society for Precision Engineering in 2014 and served as the chairman of the society for two years.
