June 22, 2004: 'The Latest Trends of PCB Designs' seminar. The special seminar --
organized by the Microelectronics Program, School of Advanced Technologies -- will be held at 10:00 a.m. - 12.00 noontime in Room IE-106, Chalerm Prakiat Building. The seminar will be conducted by Mr. Lam Kin, Technical Marketing Manager, Zuken, Singapore.

Mr. Kin received his B.Eng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, The Queen's University of Belfast, United Kingdom and his post-graduate degree in Business Administration from Edinburgh Business School, UK.

Mr. Kin worked in Research and Development specialists in Radio Frequency and Microwave engineering before working as a Certified Agilent Application Engineer in RF/Microwave components and spent sometime with the British Army.


Topics to be covered depends very much on Basics of PCB designs and how a PCB design tool can help in PCB designs. Other issues that will be covered for The Basics of PCB will include: What is a Library?; The Importance of a Good Library, Schematic Capture; What is a PCB; Basic Knowledge for a Good PCB Design and How a PCB design tool can help.

All Microelectronics and ISE students are expected to attend. Interested persons are most welcome.

December 13 - 15, 2004: 2nd International Conference on Innovations in Food Processing Technology and Engineering will be held at the AIT Conference Center.

The role of food processing technology and engineering in the economic development need not be overemphasized. Food science, technology and engineering (FS&E;) have been at the very core of numerous development and achievements to make a wide variety of foods available year around in palatable, nutritious, aesthetically packaged, in terms of appearance, functionality, storability, nutrition, and economic viability of innovative processes and modern food products.

Realizing the concepts, putting in practice and reaping the harvest through successful marketing. The role of FS&E; has been indispensable in not only making the necessary tools available but in review of new developments in food processing technology and engineering along with dissemination of relevant information among scientists, engineers, technologists and other professionals.

Technical Program: The technical program will include plenary and keynote lectures, parallel lectures and poster sessions.

Original contributors, case histories, of actual industrial operations, state-of-the-art papers, and commercial information on the following subjects are invited.

  • Food processing technology
  • Physical properties of foods
  • Thermal processing and preservation
  • Non-thermal processing
  • Food safety
