Prof Kam-Tim Woo received his BEng, MPhil and PhD degrees from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 1995, 1997 and 2005, respectively, all in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. He received first prize in IEEE Student Paper Contest for Undergraduate Students (Hong Kong Chapter) and second prize in Varisty Competition in Electronic Design in 1994. He was a recipient of the Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fellowship in 1995 for his MPhil. studies in motion control.
He joined the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering in January 1997, and is currently an Associate Professor of Engineering Education. He is active in professional bodies. He is a member of IEEE. He reviews various IEEE conference papers as reviewer regularly. He serves as treasures of the Information Theory Chapter, IEEE Hong Kong Chapter since 2006. He also served as local arrangement chairman for IEEE International Symposium on Electronic Design, Test & Applications (DELTA) 2008, and program committee of International Conference on ICT in Teaching and Learning since 2008.
Besides, he is active in community services and social services. He provides technical advices to organization committees and judges in several local design competitions for youth since 2007.
Prof Woo also encourages and mentors students to join various design competitions with various design emphasis on creativity-driven, business-driven, application-driven objectives, etc. One of the aims of these design project competitions is being able to contribute to the wellbeing of society and fulfilling the social responsibility. Participants of these projects obtain valuable feedback from professional bodies, comments from target groups and obtain a wealth of hands-on-experience.
By participating these design competitions, our students have more opportunities to implement their knowledge into practical daily life products. They performed exceptionally well and won various prizes some of which are listed at: http://www.ee.ust.hk/ece.php/enews/student
His current research areas include signal processing, wireless systems design, and tracking systems.
