    DNA as the biomolecule of life has always been in the center of attention in biology-related fields. This amazing molecule stores, preserves and transfers genetic information in form of biochemical codes known as nucleotides. The discovery of DNA as a semi conductive material has significantly impacted bioelectronics and its applications. Complementary base pairs across two DNA strands allow generation of characteristic semiconducting behavior obtained through DNA-specific Schottky junctions.

    MRI is a way of obtaining detailed images of organs and tissues throughout the body without the need for x-rays or "ionizing" radiation. Instead, MRI uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves, rapidly changing magnetic fields and a computer to create images that show if there is an injury, disease process or abnormal condition present.

    Rapid human modernization demands an enormous amount of optical sensing devices based on optoelectronic engineering. From the conventional semiconductor material, the material expansion is more robust than what we can imaging. As an electrical and electronic engineering background, we always stick with the basic PN junction, circuit theory, and basic electronics.

    Miniaturization of electronics, optical and telecommunication hardware demands equally sophisticated production, testing and measurement equipment. It would be a costly setback if production yield is compromised due to excessive vibration of the production floor. It is therefore common for sensitive equipment to have vibration serviceability requirements for successful operation.

    Involved in the Working Group and Technical Committee for developing the MS Standard for low voltage electrical installation, Mr. Dahari Mat Siran has shared in numerous seminars, his expectations in the standards and requirements in designing electrical system. For those who has attended Mr. Dahari’s seminar, they can assure you that they have always ended up with many pages of useful notes full of contents that they utilize in their design works as soon as they are back to work. This is because Mr. Dahari explains technical things in details to help the participants really understand the concepts behind all design requirements.

    Floor structure, typically made from reinforced concrete material, has been increasingly used in building and infrastructure application to carry designed dead and imposed loads acting on it. The need for quality and condition assessment monitoring of such structure after its construction is a vital issue with the engineers. Monitoring parameters such as floor thickness evaluation and the mapping of rebar detailing are the interest of the assessment.

    Floods that frequently occur in Penang Island are flash floods. The frequency and magnitude increase during South-west to North-East monsoon transition period in September to November every year. The causes of flash flood are river overflow, undersized drain, blockage by rubbish, tidal effect and poor management of construction site.

    Major power consumption reduction will drive future design of technologies and architectures that will request less greedy devices and interconnect systems. The electronic market will be able to face an exponential growth thanks to the availability and feasibility of autonomous and mobile systems necessary to societal needs. The increasing complexity of high volume fabricated systems will be possible if we aim at zero intrinsic variability, and generalize 3-dimensional integration of hybrid, heterogeneous technologies at the device, functional and system levels. Weighing on the world energy saving balance will be possible and realistic by maximizing the energy efficiency of co integrated Low Power and High Performance Logic and Memory devices. The future of Nanoelectronics will face the major concerns of being Energy and Variability Efficient (E.V.E.).

    Deterioration of concrete bridges and other concrete structures caused by environmental exposure is a severe global problem. Serious deterioration of the civil engineering infrastructure has encouraged structural monitoring of the integrity of structural systems. Early detection of damage is of special concern for civil engineering structures. If not identified in time, damage may have serious consequences, both safety related and economic.

    The role of Human Factors in the causation of crashes and other untoward Incidents has often been politicized. The speaker will critically appraise the role of Human Factors in existing models of “Safety” with examples from transportation crashes, occupational, home and recreational injuries. A multidimensional approach to the study of Safety and Injury Prevention is recommended. He has advocated for the setting up of a National Transportation Safety Board to proactively improve transportation safety standards through independent no-fault investigation process (of near misses / crashes and sharing of such information), research and training and suggests that other areas of Safety be approached in a similar manner.

    Landslides pose a ubiquitous hazard in mountainous and hilly terrain and often lead to human casualties in urban settlements and along transportation corridors. From a global perspective, Asia has remained a dominant region in terms of occurrence of fatal landslides. For example, the 1996 Keningau landslide in Sabah recorded the highest level of fatality (>300 deaths) for a single landslide in Malaysia whereby a debris flow, triggered by torrential rain, inundated a number of villages. In the aftermath of several disastrous landslides with multiple fatalities in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Government took the policy decision in 1977 to establish the Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO).

    Civil and structural project consultants are normally entrusted by the Developers to propose and submit sewage treatment plant (STP) design and drawings to IWK, and sometimes to SPAN if it involves appeal case. However, STP design is a specialized subject which requires competency and knowledge in biological and mechanical process besides civil engineering knowhows. Understanding the engineering technology, statutory guidelines and procedures are, however, important in ensuring good design, speedy approval and steady performance of the plant. Therefore, many civil and structural consulting engineers normally refer to specialist STP contractor to propose STP system in the planning stage and carry out design and build during in the building stage.
