Let’s congratulate Professor Elvis Mak Pui In, CKYC Fellows, becomes the first Macao native to be elected IEEE Fellow!

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has released its 2019 fellow list. Prof Elvis Mak Pui In from the University of Macau (UM) has made the list, for his contributions to the fields of radio frequency and analog circuits. He is the first native of Macao to receive this prestigious honour.

IEEE is an international association of engineers in the fields of electronics technology and information science, with more than 420,000 members in over 160 countries. The total number of IEEE fellows selected each year cannot exceed 0.1 per cent of the total voting membership. The 2019 list includes 295 new fellows, 30 of whom are scientists from China. Prof Mak belongs to the youngest category (in the 31-39 age bracket), which is very rare.

Prof Mak is the associate director (research) of the State-Key Laboratory of Analog and Mixed-Signal VLSI at UM and a professor in the university’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is recognised internationally as one of the foremost scholars in the field of integrated circuits, with over 260 published papers. 20 of these papers have been presented at the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference, which is hailed as the ‘Chip Olympics’. Earlier this year, he was appointed an overseas expert of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) of the United Kingdom for his contributions to engineering research, education, and services. The IET is one of the world’s largest engineering institutions with close to 170,000 members in 150 countries.

Born in Macao, Prof Mak received his early education in St Teresa’s School (Escola de Santa Teresa) and Salesian Institute (Instituto Salesiano). Afterwards, he obtained his bachelor’s and doctoral degrees in electrical and computer engineering from UM, in 2003 and 2006, respectively. He has since been a faculty member at UM. Prof Mak is currently the chairman of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society’s (CASS) Distinguished Lecturer Programme. He has served as the associate editor, guest editor, or senior editor of seven IEEE journals, as well as an editorial board member of the IEEE Press. He was also a Distinguished Lecturer of both the IEEE CASS and the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society.

熱烈恭賀蔡繼有書院導師麥沛然教授成首位澳門土生土長IEEE會士!

2019國際電機電子工程師學會(IEEE)會士名單公佈!澳門大學教授麥沛然榜上有名,成為首位土生土長的澳門人獲此殊榮,表彰他在射頻和模擬電路領域的傑出成就。

IEEE全稱是Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers(國際電機電子工程師學會),它是一個國際性的電子技術與信息科學工程師的學會,會員遍佈160個國家超過42萬人,每年會士候選人經學會專家嚴格評選,當選人數不超過該會當年會員總人數的千分之一。2019 IEEE會士一共新增295名,其中中國科學家30多名,澳大的麥沛然能擠身最年輕的組別(31歲至39歲)實屬罕見。

麥沛然現任澳門大學模擬與混合信號超大規模集成電路國家重點實驗室(研究)副主任、科技學院電機及電腦工程系教授,他是國際公認、集成電路領域專家,目前發表學術論文逾260篇,當中20篇又稱“芯片奧林匹克”的IEEE國際固態電路研討會上發表。麥沛然在工程研究、教育及服務方面成就卓越,今年獲任命為中國科學院海外專家和英國工程技術學會會士。英國工程技術學會是全球最大的工程機構之一,會員遍佈150個國家,近17萬人。

麥沛然是土生土長的澳門人,先後就讀於聖德蘭小學和慈幼中學,其後升學澳大,並分別於2003年和2006年獲澳大電機及電腦工程專業學士和博士學位。自2006年起在澳大任教,現為IEEE電路與系統學會傑出講師選委會主席;曾擔任IEEE七本期刊的副主編、客座主編和資深主編,也曾擔任IEEE出版社編輯委員會成員,是IEEE電路與系統學會和IEEE固態電路學會的傑出講師。
