KUCHING – An academic from Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus was recently awarded for her dissertation by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

The IEEE is the largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence, in the world.

Dr Wong Ming Ming, an engineering lecturer, was awarded the IEEE Circuits and Systems Outstanding Dissertation Award (PhD). She received an honorarium and a certificate.

The accolade recognizes outstanding doctoral dissertation that has contributed to the advancement of theory and/or applications of circuits and system.

Wong was the sole recipient of the award this year.

She was presented with the award by the IEEE Circuits and Systems (CAS) Malaysia during its high-tea event at a leading hotel in Bangi, Selangor.

“I am truly honoured and would like to thank Swinburne (Sarawak) for all its support during my postgraduate study at the university,” said Wong who was one of the first two doctoral candidates to graduate from Swinburne Sarawak last year.

“The high tea event was a great opportunity to network with IEEE CAS members from other Malaysian universities. Several keynote speakers and I got to present our research work and exchanged ideas. Research collaboration is something we are looking to embark on in the future,” said the Sibu-born lass.

Wong’s doctoral dissertation presented a series of optimization approaches for Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Elliptic Curve (EC) cryptosystems in Very-large-scale integration (VLSI) hardware circuits.

The lightweight and high performance cryptosystem is of high importance for the development of mobile phones and communication technologies.
