EXPERIENCE

 

University of California, Berkeley Extension

Lead Instructor

Berkeley, CA
2008-Present
 
Created a unique world-class Certificate Program in Integrated Circuit Design and Techniques with bilingual soundtracks (English and Mandarin) for UC Berkeley Extension. Since 2008, over 230 engineers around the world, including Bosnia-Herzegovina, France, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, and Thailand, have participated in the program.

 

  • Developed 12 online IC design course curricula and contents with bilingual soundtracks for the University.
  • Created a dedicated education website, http://www.UCBerkeleyExt.com, with fully asynchronous learning model.
  • Established partnerships with the Berkeley’s Advisory Board Members consisting of UC Berkeley engineering faculty and leaders of major semiconductor companies.
 
 

Knowledge Master, Inc.

President & CEO

Irvine, CA
2004-Present
 
Developed a unique, on-demand content delivery system built around Macromedia Breeze/Adobe Connect and Flash technologies. Offering 96 electrical engineering career development courses through two websites, http://www.EEMaster.com and http://www.UCBerkeleyExt.com. The system lets students hear their instructor’s voice to walk them through interactive slides, as if they were sitting in the classroom, and lets students control their own pace of learning with a full set of controls to pause, rewind, repeat, skip and search through slide sets.

 

  • Created unique presentation methodology, including developing 30,000 animated slides with UC Berkeley’s program.
  • Produced Knowledge Master’s course curriculum which features 29 online courses offered through the partnership with IEEE Educational Activities Department.
  • Provided instructional service to UC San Diego Extension for the engineering courses. Courses include mixed-signal design, analog digital conversion and analog integrated-circuit (IC) design. Most students’ backgrounds were engineers coming from high tech corporations, such as Qualcomm, Broadcom, Sun Microsystems, and Conexant.
