About

Established by Grant A. Ellis, PhD, on September 9, 2005, Penang’s MTT/ED/AP chapter was the first IEEE chapter in the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone, Penang, Malaysia.

A plan to start an IEEE SSC chapter in Penang was started by Mr Boon Eu SEOW in 2006, but delayed due to the insufficient number of SSC members.  Two years later, MTT/ED/AP Chapter Chair Mr Yut Hoong CHOW proposed that the AP society of MTT/ED/AP be replaced by SSC to better focus on related industries in the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone.

Subsequently the group was reorganized officially on May 15, 2008 and renamed as the IEEE Malaysia Electron Devices Society, the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society and the Solid-State Circuits Society (ED15/MTT17/SSC37) joint chapter, with registration number, CH10341.

Mission

The IEEE Penang Joint Chapter hopes to support and accelerate the growth of electronic industries in its communities by sponsoring and organizing seminars and lectures by subject matter experts. In this regard, IEEE distinguished lecturers have been very supportive, delivering many well-received and well-attended lectures to our chapter.
