Three main games which are DOTA 2, FIFA 17, and also Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) will be held for UTP Cyber Games 2017 (UCG 17). 64 teams are targeted to participate in our DOTA 2 tournament, 128 players for FIFA 17 tournament, and 32 teams for CS: GO tournament.

This event will be held on 8 – 9 July 2017 at Chancellor Complex, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS. Open to all UTP students and Malaysian community!

IEEE EDS Distinguished Lecture

November 7, 2016 | Latest News | 7,053 Comments

IEEE Penang EDS/MTTS/SSCS Chapter in collaboration with IEEE UTP Student Branch cordially invite you to attend a IEEE EDS Distinguished Lecture ‘Engineering Evolution in Electronics and 50 Years of Moore’ by Dr. M. K. Radhakrishnan (Founder Director, NanoRel, Singapore & IEEE EDS Vice-President of Regions & Chapters).

Kindly register at

**Free limited lunch to all IEEE members/student members**

The integrated circuit (IC) history started more than 55 years back and the technology progression during this period has immensely helped in understanding various materials and interfaces at the most miniaturized scale. The studies in turn have helped in developing many useful tools and techniques for the benefit of mankind. All these technological innovations and related advancements in the society – life style, health care and well-being, etc – are indebted to semiconductor device technology. Currently, we stand at another juncture as well, where the fruits of developments in the last century science and the depth of knowledge mankind acquired through research in material science and various mathematical tools merge to emerge in the form of nano-electronics, a new set of advancement for technological evolution. The progression of device technology and its transformation from microelectronics to the present stage of nano devices will be discussed in this talk. An overview of the evolution of electronics to the modern day smart devices employing nano technology will be included in view of 50 years of Moore’s law. The major challengers in analysis and metrology are discussed with relevance to the limitations in application of the tools and the complexity in analysis. Understanding the device physics in terms of electron conduction through various interfaces can provide a deep insight into the challenges in the technology progression. Many a times, our curriculum lacks the practical aspects of device processing and the complexity of science and engineering involved. The objective is to provide a broad picture of the vast area for study in the field of device technology, where the importance still lies on understanding the fundamentals of device physics, materials and interfaces.

For any inquiries, kindly contact via email to Assoc. Prof. Dr. Wong Peng Wen ( or Mr. Kang Chun Hong (

Looking forward to see you there!
