One-day Course on Plastics for Automotive Applications
Venue: Wisma IEM
Date & Time: 21 Nov 2012 (9:00 AM - 5:00 PM) Closed
CPD: 6
Closing Date Before: 18-Nov-2012 (Subject to change based on availability of seat)
Organised By Technical Division - Chemical Engineering


This course is specially designed for people interested to gain knowledge on the plastics usage for automotive applications. This course will cover the basic theory of polymer properties and characterization as well as the processing technology. It is followed by exploring the plastic reinforcement technology and their competition in the automotive industry. In addition, environmental and safety requirement based on the customer demand of the automotive industry will be discussed. Finally, the examples of the use of plastics for specific components and systems will be covered.

At the end of the course, the participants will be able to:
- Analyse laboratory data to determine the performance of the plastic materials.
- Select plastic materials based on application requirements.
- Synthesis the reinforcement package for automotive application.
- Determine the safety specifications to fulfil the international standards.


Assoc. Prof. Ir. Dr Tee Tiam Ting is an associate professor in Chemical Engineering Department of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR). He has more than 30 years of teaching and research experiences in the field of Plastics in the university. He was the former vice president of IEM and currently the fellow member of IEM. He still plays an active role as a committee member of Chemical Engineering Technical Division (CETD) of IEM. He graduated with PhD from McGill University, Canada and was working on developing an oscillatory rheometer in 1970s to measure the viscoelastic property of polymer melts. He had worked as plant manager in an international Injection Moulding company at Montreal, Canada. He is currently an active consultant for Commercial Polymers Sdn. Bhd. to develop crosslinked polyethylene for cable application. He also had served as technical adviser to Malaysian Plastics Manufacturing Association of Malaysia for many years. He plays an active role in designing the polymer engineering curriculum of UTAR for undergraduate program.

Engr. Dr Lee Tin Sin is an assistant professor in Chemical Engineering Department of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR). He graduated from the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) with First Class Honours in Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical-Polymer) and PhD in Polymer Engineering. He completed his PhD in two years’ time with 10 papers publications in international journals and book chapter about the characterization of biopolymer. His PhD research was focus on developing injection mouldable biodegradable cassava starch polymer compound which has won silver medal award in Malaysia Technology Expo 2010. Moreover, he has received IEM Young Engineers Award 2012. Previously, he worked as a R&D Process Engineer in Superlon Worldwide Sdn. Bhd. which is one of the largest nitrile insulation manufacturers in Malaysia. Currently, he plays active roles in designing the polymer engineering curriculum of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman for undergraduate program. Besides, he also serves as a committee member of the Chemical Engineering Technical Division (CETD) of IEM. In March 2012, the Young Engineer Award was conferred on him by the IEM Council in recognition of his outstanding works and achievements as an inspired young engineer.
