Process Engineer at RENESAS

Every morning I need to retract the bin 6 and bin 8 CDA analysis result from the the system and payout all the good products to the confirmation area. I need to record and report all the holdback lots and arrange all the analysis either having the manual test or performing X-Ray or bunkai removing the microchip package so that we can observe the pellet and wire. Then I need to record all the test time index for all four SOWA machine for test program improvement. The shorther the time index, it would be great for the production. All the CDA analysis needed to be key-in into the data sheet so that we can observe and monitor the overall CDA analysis for the whole month. This result would be presented in the Department of Integrated Circuit quality forum. 

At 9.00 in the morning, me and my boss would chair the meeting, checking all the holdback materials, TVI rejection trend, CDA results, machine shutdown trend and all the action items for that day. Then, I would print out all the meeting minutes and sent the email to all members and the bosses including the senior director of RSK. After 10.00 am breakfast, I would start my action item for that day as discussed in the previous meeting either arranging the Critical Defect Analysis, monitoring the machine and checking the test programs. I even need to check my email if there is any new instruction from my boss or the managers.

I would normally stay in the line up till 5.31 pm but however my plan for this year is to go back at 6.30 pm as I would be reading books for an hour to enrich my intellectual capacity

Spring 2015

1)      MTRL 475 - Microstructure Engineering (MILITZER, MATTHIAS)
-          Follows the production of metallurgical products, focusing on process design models used to describe solidification, recrystallization, and precipitation.
-          Comment:
This course is very interesting but you have Militzer who is very strict while marking the exams. If you have another instructor, you can still consider you clique who can discuss with you regarding the assignment and Modelling Project
-          Modelling Project: Attend all lectures, print lecture notes, write notes during lecture, ask question, GO TO OFFICE HOURS

2)      MTRL 456 – Environmental Degradation of Materials
-          Fundamental aspects of environmental degradation of metals (corrosion), ceramics, and polymers, with an emphasis on aqueous environments.
-          Comment: This course is really interesting if you gonna work in the oil and gas industry, print the lecture notes, write the notes during lecture, ask question, make sure you score 90% on all assignments and 80% in the midterms and GO TO OFFICE HOURS.

3)      MTRL 478 - Electronic Materials (XIA, GUANGRUI)
-          Materials and physics aspects of semiconductor, optical and magnetic devices: energy bandstructure, crystal structure, crystal defects and impurity effects, relationship of material characteristics and physical properties; production of electronic materials and devices: single crystal growth, epitaxy, metallization, ion implantation, lithography and etching; characterization techniques: X-ray diffraction, photoluminescence.
-          Comment: You have Maggie as you prof,she can be my referee for my Master’s application. Print lecture notes, write notes during lecture, ask questions, GO TO OFFICE HOUR
4)      MTRL 458 – Hydrometallurgy II (ASSELIN, EDOUARD)
-          Leaching, purification, precipitation, regeneration; thermodynamics and kinetics of separation steps; electrochemical applications.
-          Yah, you have Edouard as you prof, a super easy prof. Write notes in the class, attend all lectures, ask question, GO TO OFFICE HOURS. He can be my referee for my Master’s application. Make sure I got him for my FINAL YEAR PROJECT.

o   Just follow the Chad’s final year project plan.
After lectures, get to Tim Hortons and Review all the lectures for that day for on daily basis
Leave Home by 7.00 am and get to Tim Hortons Forestry building for breakfast
Work out before sleep so you gonna get fit
Sleep every night by 10.30 am and I mean real sleep and leave all the S3 and ipod and just turn ON the alarm
Leave UBC and go home every day by 9.00 pm and better to take bus 25

FRIDAY NIGHT: Go to café or Blenz (downtown) to complete up my entire final year project tasks.
WEEKEND: Stay at UBC and do all the assignments, review the notes, better to study at UBC by Saturday and feel confident to finish all the works by Sunday

January 15 – start studying for midterms
February 9 (Monday) – Family day (utilizes the time for final year project)
February 14-22 –Reading Break: Study the Composite Materials and Nanofiber Technology
February 25- Start studying for the final exam and finalize the final year project

April 3 and 6 – Holiday (STUDYING FOR FINALS)

Sharpest Lives

Well it rains and it pours
When you're out on your own
If I crash on the couch
Can I sleep in my clothes?
'Cause I've spent the night dancing
I'm drunk, I suppose
If it looks like I'm laughing
I'm really just asking to leave

This alone, you're in time for the show
You're the one that I need
I'm the one that you loathe
You can watch me corrode like a beast in repose
'Cause I love all the poison
Away with the boys in the band

I've really been on a bender and it shows
So why don't you blow me a kiss before she goes?

Give me a shot to remember
And you can take all the pain away from me
A kiss and I will surrender
The sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead
A light to burn all the empires
So bright the sun is ashamed to rise and be
In love with all of these vampires
So you can leave like the sane abandoned me

There's a place in the dark where the animals go
You can take off your skin in the cannibal glow
Juliet loves the beat and the lust it commands
Drop the dagger and lather the blood on your hands, Romeo

I've really been on a bender and it shows
So why don't you blow me a kiss before she goes?

Give me a shot to remember
And you can take all the pain away from me
A kiss and I will surrender
The sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead
A light to burn all the empires
So bright the sun is ashamed to rise and be
In love with all of these vampires
So you can leave like the sane abandoned me

Get thee to a Nunnery

I am very proud, revengeful, ambitious, with more offences at my beck than I have thoughts to put them in, imagination to give them shape, or time to act them in. What should such fellows as I do crawling between earth and heaven? We are arrant knaves, all. Believe none of us. Go thy ways to a nunnery.

Where’s your father?

At home, my lord.


Let the doors be shut upon him, that he may play the fool no where but in ’s own house. Farewell.


O, help him, you sweet heavens!

If thou dost marry, I’ll give thee this plague for thy dowry. Be thou as chaste as ice, as pure as snow, thou shalt not escape calumny. Get thee to a nunnery, go. Farewell. Or, if thou wilt needs marry, marry a fool, for wise men know well enough what monsters you make of them. To a nunnery, go, and quickly too. Farewell.


Heavenly powers, restore him!

I have heard of your paintings too, well enough. God has given you one face and you make yourselves another. You jig and amble, and you lisp, you nickname God’s creatures and make your wantonness your ignorance. Go to, I’ll no more on ’t. It hath made me mad. I say, we will have no more marriages. Those that are married already, all but one, shall live. The rest shall keep as they are. To a nunnery, go.
