The knowledge includes classical theory, principle, understanding, know-how, philosophy, and technology that researchers and engineers developed and accumulated over years until up-todate research outputs and new inventions of a particular field of interest. In general, this pool of knowledge is termed as “literature.” With this, researchers and engineers are able to save their precious time and resources NOT to reinventing the wheel; without any strong justification to repeat the work/experiment/procedure that had been done previously. Depending on current technology, literature in electronic and hardcopy format can easily be obtained and accessed using appropriate tools and techniques. The main challenges here are (1) to identify the genuine and reliability of the literature and (2) to convert those humongous literatures to useful knowledge that eventually benefits to the user. In this training course, the importance of literature review leading to form useful technical knowledge will be presented in an easy-to-follow manner. COURSE OUTCOMES Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: i. Define the terms “information,” “literature” and “literature review.” ii. Explain the importance of literature review. iii. Determine the genuine and reliable information/literature. iv. Perform effectively literature review via systematic way. v. Correlate literature with intended knowledge to solve technical issues. COURSE METHODOLOGY This course is conducted in a seminar room. Each participant will receive a set of course materials. COURSE CONTENTS 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Introduction What are information, literature, and literature review? Importance of literature review. Who should perform the review? How to determine the genuine and reliable literature. Duration of performing literature review. Output of literature review. Systematic procedure to conduct literature review. Relationship of “Literature output – knowledge – problem.” COURSE CO-ORDINATOR PROFESSOR DR. IR. CHEONG KUAN YEW Kuan Yew Cheong was born in Ipoh, Perak (1972) and received the B. Eng (1st Hons.) in Materials Engineering from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Malaysia in 1997. After graduation, he worked for two years as a project engineer and quality assurance engineer in a project management company and a semiconductor-device manufacturing factory in Malaysia. End of 1999, he decided to pursue his postgraduate study (M.Sc.) after being awarded a Fellowship under the Academic Staff Training Scheme from USM. After completion his M.Sc. in Materials Engineering (Thin Film Technology) in 2001, he continued his Ph.D. in the School of Microelectronic Engineering, Griffith University, Australia and the degree was awarded in 2004. This study was fully sponsored by Australian Research Council, USM, and Griffith University Postgraduate Research Scholarship. In 2005, he was awarded a Certificate of Teaching and Learning from USM. Now he is serving as a full Professor at the School of Materials & Mineral Resources Engineering, USM. He teaches under- and post-graduate courses related to quality control and management, fabrication and characterization of engineering & electronic materials and devices for more than 10 years. Dr. Cheong’s main research area is on semiconductor device fabrication, electronic packaging, and characterization. Outcomes of his research have been published in more than 150 high impact-factor journals and 4 book chapters. Due to his expertise in wide-bandgap semiconductor-based device fabrication technology, he has been invited three times as a Visiting Scientist to Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute (KERI), Korea. He has being invited as Keynote and Invited Speaker in International Conference on Electronic Materials 2010 (ICEM 2010) - International Union of Materials Research Societies (IUMRS), Korea, CIE & IEM International Seminar on Electrical, Electronic and Energy Saving 2010, Taiwan, and Infineon Technologies (Kulim) Sdn Bhd (IFKM) Technical Symposium 2010, Malaysia, Surface Engineering 2011 at Bangkok, Thailand, and Collaborative Conference on Crystal Growth 2012 at Orlando, USA, International Conference on Materials and Characterization Techniques, India, 2014, and The 8th International Conference in Materials Processing (ICAMP8) 2014, Australia. Dr Cheong is serving as a reviewer for numerous referred journals and theses examiner both local and abroad. He has reviewed more than 550 manuscripts and now serving as an Advisory Editorial Board Member of Materials Science in Semiconductor Processing published by Elsevier Science B.V. and Associate Editor of Physics Express Recently, he is being invited by Science Publisher (an imprint of CRC Press/Taylor & Francis Group) to edit a book entitled “Two-Dimensional Nanostructures for Energy Related Applications”. Honoring his excellent contribution in research, the Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM) has accoladed Dr Cheong with ‘Top Research Scientists Malaysia’ (TRSM) 2013. Dr. Cheong is registered with the Board of Engineers, Malaysia, as a Professional Engineers in Material Engineering discipline. Outside university, he is very active in professional and community activities. He is a member of Materials Research Society (USA). He was the honorary treasurer for Electron Microscopy Society, Malaysia (2005/2006), was elected as one of the Ex-comms of the Institute of Electrical, Electronic Engineers (IEEE) – Component, Package, and Manufacturing Technology (CPMT) Society (2005 – 2014) and Electron Device Society (EDS), Malaysia Chapter (2005 – 2010), was the Chairman (2009 – 2011) and Advisor (2011 – 2012) of the Electronic Engineering Technical Division under The Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM), and was a Council Member of IEM (2009 – 2012). Dr Cheong, who is a Certified PSMB Trainer, registered with the Ministry of Human Resource, Malaysia, has been delivering technical training courses for local and multinational industries for the past 5 years and more than 2,000 engineers and researchers have benefited from those courses.
