AP Students Hold Internship at CYCU, Taiwan
Gerald Abrigo, Almond Obira, Ramon Cisco Fullante and Adrian Matthew de Ubago, senior Applied Physics students of the Physics and Math Department of the College of Science, University of Santo Tomas (UST) had their internship at Chung Yuan Christian University (CYCU), Taiwan. The two-month training is part of the Memorandum of Understanding between UST and CYCU signed in November 2010 by the then heads of the two universities, Rev. Fr. Rolando V. dela Rosa, O.P. and Dr. Wan-Lee Cheng.
While at CYCU, the said students started working on their chosen research area under the supervision of CYCU laboratory supervisors; thus: Adrian Matthew de Ubago who works on Plasma Induced Graft Polymerization of a Catalyst ( Bioenvironmental Engineering) under the tutelage of Dr. Sheng Jie-You; Gerald Abrigo who focuses on Gold nanoclusters as biosensors (Dept. of Physics) with the help of Dr. Chi Tsu Yuan; Almond Obira whose research is on Silver Nanorods as biosensors (Dept of Physics) and whose work was overseen by Dr. Ji Lin Shen, and Ramon Cisco Fullante who was guided by Dr. Wei-Chi Hu in his research on Thermoelectric-powered Accelerometer with Wireless Transmission for Gait Analysis (Biomedical Engineering).
The said training is expected to have achieved the aim of promoting education and academic exchanges between the two universities.
