Technology and Projects



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.



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 received his BSc in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Riverside. 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. Mr. Tam Yong served as the 2017-2019 Vice Chair of the IEEE Foothill Section and continues to serve IEEE Region 6 at roles promoting student and young professional engagement since 2017.
