USM and ams OSRAM launch innovative industry-academia programme

  • Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) and ams OSRAM successfully organised the “3rd School of Physics & ams OSRAM Industry in the Classroom” programme.
  • The programme aims to educate postgraduates on semiconductor advancements through guest lectures by ams OSRAM engineers.
  • As explained by the coordinator of the event, Ts. Dr. Wan Maryam Wan Ahmad Kamil, “This initiative was developed with ams OSRAM to offer added value to the postgraduates.”

Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) and ams OSRAM have unveiled their latest endeavour, the 3rd School of Physics & ams OSRAM Industry in the Classroom” programme.

Tailored for postgraduate students specialising in applied and engineering physics, as well as those undertaking master’s degrees in solid-state physics courses, this initiative aims to revolutionise education in semiconductor epitaxy techniques and device development.

Pioneering partnership

Led by esteemed ams OSRAM doctorate engineers, the programme kicked off at the USM School of Physics with an engaging session by Dr. David Lacey, director of research and development (R&D) at ams OSRAM. Over 30 emerging scholars eagerly participated, ready to delve into the cutting-edge lectures and discussions that lay ahead.
