On 6 July 2018, we had IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, Professor Tan Cher Ming from Taiwan to share with us on Reliability and Solid State Lighting at Swinburne Sarawak Campus. The talk was sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society Distinguished Lecturer Program, IEEE Sarawak Subsection and Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Science Swinburne Sarawak Campus.
According to Professor Tan, reliability is a term that can be new to many in Asia, but its history begins right after World War 1. In his talk, he described briefly the concept of reliability and its importance with an example of reliability in the solid state lighting. The talk highlighted how we could use reliability science to understand the reliability issue and to serve as an example of the necessity and usefulness of reliability.
The talk attracted 30 participants consisting of students and professional. There was a question and answer session for participants to raise their questions and Professor Tan enlightened them with his excellent insights.
