The ECE NUS Graduate Student Symposium 2017 will not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. We're very pleased
to present to you the organizations supporting the symposium.
The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) is the largest department in the Faculty of Engineering at NUS, with about 100 tenured / tenure-track faculty and about twice the number of staff (teaching, research, technical support and administrative support). The Department has grown since its inception and has now an academic staff strength of over 100, undergraduate students of about 1500 (~1030 students in B.Eng (Electrical) programme, ~490 students in B.Eng (CEG/Computer) programme, and some 670 graduate students (~380 PhD, ~50 MEng, ~230 MSc).
The main objectives and functions of IEEE Singapore Section are: To provide assistance to members on IEEE related matters, To establish benefits for IEEE members, and To assist IEEE volunteers in organizing IEEE activities which may be of administrative, technical, educational, professional or social in nature. The 31-year old Singapore Section has about 2300 members. Its sub-entities include 24 Chapters, 2 Affinity Groups and 4 Student Branches.
The mission of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society is to foster members across disciplines to address humanity’s grand challenges by conceiving and pioneering solutions to fundamental and applied problems in circuits and systems. The IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) Singapore Chapter comprises mainly local researchers, engineers and graduate students. Currently, we have more than 100 members.
The IEEE Communications Society Singapore Chapter is a community comprised of a diverse group of industry professionals with a common
interest in advancing all communications technologies. To that end, the Society sponsors publications, conferences,
educational programs, local activities, and technical committees that: Foster original work in all aspects of communications
science, engineering, and technology.
The IEEE Singapore Rel/CPMT/ED Society focuses on activities related to three societies of the IEEE, namely the IEEE Reliability Society (focuses
on assuring reliability in the engineering disciplines of hardware, software, and human factors), the IEEE Components, Packaging, and
Manufacturing Technology Society (focuses the research, design and development of revolutionary advances in microsystems packaging and manufacturing),
and the IEEE Electron Devices Society (focuses on all aspects of engineering, physics, theory, experiment and simulation of electron and ion
devices involving insulators, metals, organic materials, plasmas, semiconductors, quantum-effect materials, vacuum, and emerging materials).
The IEEE Industry Applications Society, as a transnational organization, focuses on the advancement of the theory and practice of electrical
and electronic engineering in the development, design, manufacture and application of electrical systems, apparatus, devices and controls to
the processes and equipment of industry and commerce; the promotion of safe, reliable and economic installations; industry leadership in energy
conservation and environmental, health, and safety issues; the creation of voluntary engineering standards and recommended practices; and the
professional development of its membership.
The Power Electronics Society is one of the fastest growing technical societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
For over 20 years, PELS has facilitated and guided the development and innovation in power electronics technology. This technology encompasses
the effective use of electronic components, the application of circuit theory and design techniques, and the development of analytical tools
toward efficient conversion, control and condition of electric power. Our 7,000 members include preeminent researchers, practitioners, and
distinguished award winners.
