Alumni Corner

Meet Our Alumni

Welcome to Alumni Corner of Electrical and Computer Engineering in Curtin Malaysia!

We’re here to help alumni maintain a lifelong connection with us and with each other, sharing experiences and expertise. It’s an opportunity to build professional and social networks as well as keeping in touch with fellow Curtinians.

We are hoping to share stories about our alumni in the future here. Please send us news about yourself that we can post on this webpage. We would like to know what’s happening since you graduated from the program! 

International alumni groups are a great way to keep in touch with fellow Curtin University graduates and friends from different countries.

Join our global network by filling this information here.  We can’t wait to hear from you!

 

Our Stories

Be inspired by our ECE alumni whose experiences, diverse careers and achievements shape the future of the world.

Ms Esther Kueh Yue Ning

Alumnus 2016 – Electrical Power Engineering

Where are you currently working / studying?

I am a Trainee Electrical Engineer with Sarawak Shell Berhad

Please tell us briefly the nature of your work (your job description)?

I am with Sarawak Asset Maintenance (Electrical Discipline). We ensure the integrity of our offshore assets by performing quality preventive maintenance and corrective maintenance strategies on our electrical equipment. Ultimately, our efforts contribute to ensuring that our plant has minimum downtime and is safe for operation.

Please comment on the correlations between what you have learned in the university with the ones you are doing now?

Units regarding power generation, distribution and protection are relevant to my work at this point in time. But beyond that, I believe the university best prepares us for the workplace by instilling in us an attitude of diligence, resilience and curiosity.

What are your messages / suggestions / comments to the School of Engineering and Science and current students (your juniors)?

I have personally benefited much from being part of the IEEE community in my uni days. The School of Eng and Science should continue being supportive of IEEE’s efforts and create a platform for students to become emerging young leaders, fit for the workplace.

 

Dr. Chua Shin Cheng

Alumnus 2013 – Electronic and Communication Engineering

Where are you currently working / studying? 

I am a Structural Design Engineer with Intel Penang.

Please tell us briefly the nature of your work (your job description)?

For my job nature, I am involved in the design and development of next-generation SoC/CPU.

Please comment on the correlations between what you have learned in the university with the ones you are doing now?

Units involved with digital design, engineering programming, embedded system programming and electronic design are relevant to my work. They establish as a layer of foundations for me and help me in advancing my learning and development in my work. Aside from course work study, what I find it really important is my mind-set I developed during my time in university. Throughout my time in university, my mind-set, problem solving skills I developed during group based project, club project and research project really benefit me in my work. 

What are your messages / suggestions / comments to the School of Engineering and Science and current students (your juniors)?

Study hard and getting good grades is good. But do not let the desire of getting good grade covers your eye. Look at what falls far beyond there. Personally I have benefited so much from my past IEEE based projects and postgrad research. I would highly encourage students to be supportive of IEEE’s event and project.
