He’s on the list

IT is not every day that you come across a Malaysian listed in the Who’s Who Among Students in American universities and colleges.  

Inti alumni Tan Chin Pei has achieved this but he declares that his achievement doesn’t make him a special person but rather, one with a greater responsibility to society. 

Tan, a former student of Inti’s American University Programme, left for the State University of New York at Buffalo upon completing his diploma in engineering and the applied sciences in 1998. He graduated in 2002 with a B. Sc in mechanical engineering.  

The enterprising Tan was recently honoured with a placing in the elitist list which honours outstanding campus leaders for their leadership skills and scholastic and community achievements. 

Tan is listed in this year's 'Who's Who Among Students' in America.

Tan is currently pursuing his doctorate degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering. He also works at the university’s Automation, Robotics and Mechatronics (ARM) laboratory under the supervision of Dr Venkat Krovi. 

His string of achievements include winning the New York State Graduate Student Employees Union (GSEU) Professional Development Award, being a member of the Golden Key International Honour Society, the Order of Engineers and the Tau Beta Pi Honour Society (New York). Tan was also on the Dean’s List for three semesters during his undergraduate days at Inti. 

His doctoral studies deal with the largely unexplored world of robotics.
