EEE Activities in Macao / Birth

  • University Background

    • Before 1981 Engineering Graduates from outside Macao, namely, HK, Portugal, China, Taiwan, USA, UK, and other countries

      1981 University of East Asia (3-year private English university)

      (No Engineering Degrees)

      1989Creation of the Faculty of Science and Technology,UEA

      (4-year Bachelor’s degree in EEE, Software Eng. and later EME)

      1991 UEA re-baptized as University of Macau(Public University)

      1993First Batch of Graduates in EEE

      1994First Batch of Graduates in Software Engineering

      Beginning of the 1990’s IEEE Members less than 10

Fast growth l.jpg
Fast Growth

  • New Developments

    1992 to 1996 Incinerator, Airport, Air Macau, Internet from CTM, New Power Plants from CEM, Vodatel and others…

    1993 & 1994Starting of Master Programs in EEE and Software Engineering at UM

    1996 Starting of Ph.D. Programs in EEE and Software Engineering at UM

    6/1996 3rd. International Workshop on Services in Distributed and Networked Environments– organized by FST/UM and the IEEE Technical Committee on Distributed Processing

    1998 Creation of IEEE Student Branch at UM

    2000 Macao University of Science and Technology (MUST) with Programs (P-Grad)in Information Technology

    2000First Ph.D. in FST / UM (and in Macao) in EEE(joint-degree UM-Technical University of Lisbon)

    2001 to 2002 3 other Ph.D’s in FST / UM also in EEE

    Beginning of the 2000’s IEEE Members around 100

Maturity l.jpg

  • Consolidated Numbers

    1993 to 2003 Close to 550Bachelor degree holders in EEE, Software, and EME(FST / UM)

    1993 to 2003 More than 70Master degree holders in EEE, Software, and EME(FST / UM)

    1996 to 2002 4 Doctors in EEE(FST / UM)

    2000 to 2003 10 Master degree holders in Information Technology(MUST)

  • High-Standards for Graduation

    Master Usually 1 paper accepted at IEEE International Conference

    Several Excellent cases with various papers accepted at IEEE International Conferences and IEEE or IEE Journals

    Ph.D At least1 or 2 papers at IEEE Int.Conferences and 1 paper in a IEEE or IEE Journal

Slide7 l.jpg

Excellence in Research

  • High Level Research Result

  • Area : Microelectronics

    Ph.D. work in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

    Presented and Published in the World Top Conference in the Field

    [IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference – ISSCC, San Francisco, USA, 2002]

    **Only 2 Universities in China were able to publish in 50 editions of this Conference

    Hong Kong University of Science and Technology-HKUST & University of Macau-UM**

  • Technical Contribution for the creation of a Company

    Chipidea Microelectronics (Macao)

    • In collaboration with Chipidea Microelectronics -CI (Tagus-Park) Portugal, UM has technically supported the creation of the First Microelectronics Design Center in Macao

    • The company is managed locally by an Assistant Professor of UM (that has got a joint Ph.D. degree awarded by UM and the Technical University ofLisbon-Portugal), that is now in a regime of no-paid leave

    • It is already staffed with 20 Electrical and Electronics Engineers graduated in UM that have passed an intensive period of training in CI in Portugal

      after graduation (Good Ties between University and Company)

Maturity8 l.jpg

  • Scientific References and Publications

    • To promote High-Level Research work the University of Macau acquired in 2000 theIEEE Xplore Databasethat contains currently more than 1Million Scientific Papers

    • The Emergence of Master and Ph.D. programs led to the Publication ofNumerous Papersin IEEE International Conferences and Scientific Journals

    • Main Titles : Journal of Solid-State Circuits, Transactions on Circuits and Systems, Transactions on Power Electronics, Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement, Proceedings of International Solid-State Circuits Conference, IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, IEE Electronics Letters.
