In the year 2000, I was a college student and Mr. Chin was the lecturer for electronics and electromagnetics. In 2007, I got my PhD from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
Mr. Chin is one of the few educators that you will always remember and keep in touch with. Mr. Chin has helped shape my view on knowledge and the way I learn and think. Mr. Chin’s teaching is very inspiring. Because of his strong fundamental knowledge in mathematics, physics and E&E engineering, he explains difficult concepts/theorems with ease. This makes a complex theorem logical and easier to understand, not to mention you will always remember them.
It is rare to encounter an educator like Mr. Chin. I clearly remembered that in year 2000, Mr. Chin taught me Electromagnetics. By analyzing the Maxwell wave equation (2nd order linear partial differential equation) you can eventually obtain the speed of light. Mr. Chin proceeded and proved that on the board. That was very inspiring for student like me. My inquisitive mind was triggered and inspired to reach for greater heights.
I feel blessed to know Mr. Chin as a person. His encouragements and supports for his students to seek knowledge in depth, cultivate learning attitude, problem solving methodology and thinking skills will inspire new generations to invent and create. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who is serious about mathematics, physics, and any subjects related to E&E engineering.
