Yue obtained his Bachelor’s degree in materials engineering and PhD from
Prof. C.Y. Yue has been a faculty member and academic staff of the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) since 1990 where he has been a full professor since 1999. His disciplinary focus is advanced materials modeling, processing and properties. His research has been on fibre reinforced composites, liquid crystalline polymer-based polymer blends, micro-replication techniques, and applications of polymers in biomedical engineering and microelectronics. Recently he has begun a research programme the micro- and nano-manufacturing with a focus on micro-embossing of polymers aimed at the production of microfluidic devices.
Prof. Yue is an Associate
Editor of Key
Engineering Materials. He has been serving as reviewer for several
international research agencies and journals. He has published over 175 papers
including 114 papers in international journals and 4 book chapters. He was a
Board Member of the Temasek Polytechnic,
Prof. Yue led the creation of a new graduate degree: Master of Science in Innovations in Manufacturing Systems and Technology S.M. (IMST) in 2000 in NTU working with MIT professors under the Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA). This is the first manufacturing degree in NTU and SMA that incorporates both manufacturing systems and manufacturing technology, and is the culmination of several years of course and curriculum development. This evolved into the S.M. degree in Manufacturing Science and Technology (MST) under SMA-2. He played an instrumental role in setting the up the Bachelors degree programme in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in NTU. He provided the impetus and leadership for the establishment of the Bachelors degree programme in Aerospace Engineering in the School, and together with this, the renaming of the School from Mechanical and Production Engineering to Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in 2005.
Prof. Yue served as Dean of
Applications for graduate studies and research are now open for the SMA- MST Programme.
Several Research Positions are available for qualified candidates in the SMA programme in Manufacturing Systems and Technology (MST) at both the PhD and Post-doctoral Fellow level. The key research thrust for the SMA-MST research is in micro- and nano-manufacturing. Whilst the Flagship Research Project focuses on the manufacturing principles of bio-microfluidic devices with fairly specific research tasks, the scientific and engineering principles acquired would be applicable to most micro- and nano-manufacturing industries.
