Engineering appliances and gadgets aredominating the life of human being.Therefore, it is a need to understand thecharacteristics of engineering materials beingused to produce these products. Thematerials that are being selected must fulfilsome of the basic requirements. To design,engineered, improve, and develop any ofthese products, it is essential to understandthe properties of materials. In this “easy-to-follow” and “easy-to-understand” trainingcourse, engineering materials properties willbe elaborate in detail.
Upon completion of this training course,participants should be able:1. To explain concepts related to electrical,thermal, optical, magnetic, dielectric,superconductivity properties.2. To correlate theory and principle of solidstate materials with their engineeringapplications.3. To suggest engineering materials forcertain engineering applications.

ASSOC. PROF. DR. IR. CHEONG KUAN YEW
Kuan Yew Cheong was born in Ipoh, Perak(1972) and received the B. Eng (1st Hons.)in Materials Engineering from UniversitiSains Malaysia (USM), Malaysia in 1997.After graduation, he worked for two years asa project engineer and quality assuranceengineer in a project management companyand a semiconductor-device manufacturingfactory in Malaysia.End of 1999, he decided to pursue his postgraduate study (M.Sc.)after being awarded a Fellowship under the Academic Staff TrainingScheme from USM. After completion his M.Sc. in MaterialsEngineering (Thin Film Technology) in 2001, he continued his Ph.D.in the School of Microelectronic Engineering, Griffith University,Australia and the degree was awarded in 2004. This study was fullysponsored by Australian Research Council, USM, and GriffithUniversity Postgraduate Research Scholarship. In 2005, he wasawarded a Certificate of Teaching and Learning from USM.Now he is serving as an Associate Professor at the School ofMaterials & Mineral Resources Engineering, USM. He is teachingunder- and post-graduate courses related to fabrication andcharacterization of engineering & electronic materials and devicesfor more than 8 years. Dr. Cheong’s main research area is onsemiconductor device fabrication, electronic packaging, andcharacterization. The outcomes of his research have been publishedin more than 100 high-impact-factor journals and 3 book chapters.Due to his expertise in wide-bandgap semiconductor-based devicefabrication technology, for the past six years, he has been invitedthree times as a Visiting Scientist to Korea ElectrotechnologyResearch Institute (KERI), Korea. He has also being invited as anInvited Speaker and Keynote Speaker in International Conferenceon Electronic Materials 2010 (ICEM 2010) - International Union ofMaterials Research Societies (IUMRS), Korea, CIE & IEMInternational Seminar on Electrical, Electronic and Energy Saving2010, Taiwan, and Infineon Technologies (Kulim) Sdn Bhd (IFKM)Technical Symposium 2010, Malaysia, Surface Engineering 2011 atBangkok, Thailand, and Collaborative Conference on Crystal Growthon Dec 2012 at Florida USA. Dr Cheong has served as a reviewerfor numerous referred journals and theses examiner. He hasreviewed more than 350 manuscripts and now serving as anAdvisory Editorial Board Member of Materials Science inSemiconductor Processing published by Elsevier Science B.V andAssociate Editor of Physics Express published by SimplexAcademic. He is also a Professional Engineers in MaterialEngineering discipline under Board of Engineers, Malaysia.Outside university, he is very active in professional and communityactivities. He is a member of Materials Research Society (USA). Hewas the honorary treasurer for Electron Microscopy Society,Malaysia for year 2005/2006. Since 2005, he has been elected asone of the Ex-comms of the Institute of Electrical, ElectronicEngineers (IEEE) – Component, Package, and ManufacturingTechnology (CPMT) Society and Electron Device Society (EDS),Malaysia Chapter. In addition, he was the Chairman of the electronicengineering technical division (eETD) under The Institution ofEngineers Malaysia (IEM) from 2009 to 2012 and now is the Advisorof the technical division. He has been appointed as a CouncilMember of IEM and a Standing Committee onQualification/Admission and Examination/Training.For the past years, he has involved in organizing a number of localand international conferences and being invited to chair a fewtechnical sessions in those conferences. Dr Cheong, who is acertified PSMB Trainer, has been delivering technical trainingcourses for local and multinational electronics industries for the past5 years and more than 400 engineers and researchers havebenefited from those courses.
