Professor Wong was born in Beijing, China. He attended primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong and completed his tertiary education in the US. From 1979 to 1984, he studied at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he obtained his BS and MS degrees in Electrical Engineering. From 1985 to 1988, he was at the Center for Integrated Systems at Stanford University, where he worked on tungsten gate MOS technology and obtained his PhD degree, also in Electrical Engineering. He then joined the Semiconductor Process and Design Center of Texas Instruments and worked on a variety of projects including the modelling and development of the metallisation system for the 64 mega-bit DRAM, the development of double level metallisation systems for wafer scale integration applications, and the development of dry/vapor cleaning procedures with the goal to replace all wet processes currently used in the semiconductor industry.
Since September 1992, he has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. His current research interests include advanced device fabrication technology, novel device structures and materials, thin film transistors, display technologies, micro-machines, and multi-media teaching.
He has taught courses in introductory semiconductor materials and devices, advanced solid state electronics, theory and practice of microfabrication technology, and basic electronics.
He is a member of the IEEE, the ECS, Tau Beta Pi, Eta Kappa Nu, and Sigma Xi.
