About me

 

Once upon a time, there was a kid who had big dreams and wanted everything; then, he got shocked when he tried powering a small toy DC motor from the outlet and found his real destiny.

 

Hi! My name is Alberto Tam Yong. I am an Electrical Engineer at Applied Medical on the Technology and Development, Electrical, team. I received my B.S. in Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Riverside, in 2016, and have several project experience.

 

I have an interest on embedded systems, PCB design, robotics, research and development, product development, and electronics design. I enjoy working in teams and in challenging projects.

Bio

 

Alberto Tam Yong is an Electrical Engineer at Applied Medical in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, innovating on the Technology and Development, Electrical, team to advance medical devices for minimally invasive surgery. He has experience in the design, prototype, and development of hardware electrical systems, and specializes in analog and digital circuit design. He leads and collaborates with engineers to address complex design challenges and implement engineering solutions.

 

While at Pasadena City College, Alberto assisted the engineering department as an Electronics Technician developing prototypes and designs for course curricula. He was a Teacher Assistant and also instructed courses for K-12 students during Summer programs and volunteering workshops. After transferring to the University of California, Riverside, he continued complementing his education by engaging in undergraduate research, student projects, and leading opportunities. As the 2015-2016 Chair of the IEEE Student Branch at the University of California, Riverside, he led a highly dynamic group of volunteers, engaged members with technical, social, and professional opportunities, and guided the organization to earn the IEEE Region 6 Outstanding Large Student Branch Award. As Co-Director of Citrus Hack 2016, he organized a 36-hour hackathon that gathered over 300 students to create, collaborate, and challenge each other. He received his B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Riverside, in 2016.

 

Mr. Tam Yong continues to volunteer for IEEE at the local Section level and has been serving IEEE Region 6 in roles promoting student and young professional engagement since 2017. He served as the 2017-2019 Vice Chair of the IEEE Foothill Section and has supported IEEE conferences, such as the IEEE Rising Stars Conference and the IEEE Sustech 2021 Conference. Currently, Alberto Tam Yong is the Young Professionals Chair for IEEE Region 6, Vice Chair of the IEEE Orange County Section, and is a member of the organizing committee for the IEEE Rising Stars Conference.
