澳門大學科技學院與聯合國大學國際軟件技術研究所,於2006年5月26日在澳門大學大學圖書館聯合舉辦學術講座,邀請 Tony Hoare 教授主講 "程序正確性的理想"。他於1980年獲計算機科學最高學術獎圖靈獎,是世界上最有影響力的計算機科學家之一。


Prof. Tang Man-Chung

Prof. Tang Man-Chung Lectures on "Innovative, Conservative and Artistic – Basic Principles of Bridge Engineering"

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the University of Macau organised, on 2 June 2006, a distinguished lecture entitled "Innovative, Conservative and Artistic – Basic Principles of Bridge Engineering". The speaker, Prof. Man-Chung Tang is a world-famous bridge expert of Chinese descent. One-fifth of the cablestayed bridges in North America, and one-tenth in the world, were built from his design. In 1999, Prof. Tang was selected by Engineering News Record as one of the world's top 125 contributors to the construction industry during the past 125 years (1874-1999).

澳門大學土木及環境工程系邀請了國際知名華裔橋樑專家鄧文中教授,於2006年6月2日下午於澳門大學文化中心主講「創新、穩妥和美觀——橋樑工程的基本原則」。世界上十分之一、北美五分之一的斜拉橋都是他設計的。鄧教授更於1999年榮獲國際權威的建築工程界雜誌《Engineering News Record》選為近125年(1874-1999)建築工程界125位最具貢獻的人物之一。


Three Distinguished Lectures on Microelectronics

In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the University of Macau, three Distinguished Lectures on Microelectronics were held on 7 July 2006 at the University of Macau Library. The three lectures were: "Minimizing Non-Idealities Due to Mismatch in Sub-Micron Analog CMOS Circuits Using Digital Calibration", presented by Prof. Ken Martin; "On the Cutting Edge of Research Frontier in the Nanoelectronics Era---Human-Inspired Intelligent SOC and 20-100 - GHz CMOS RF ICs", presented by Prof. Peter (Chung-Yu) Wu; and "Technology Trends of Integrated Circuit in SOC based on the Analysis of ISSCC Papers", presented by Prof. Zhihua Wang.

為慶祝澳門大學25週年校慶,澳大在2006年7月7日,於大學圖書館舉行了三場傑出微電子專題講座,包括由 Ken Martin 教授主講的「利用數字校正技術最小化深亞微米模擬CMOS電路中由不匹配引起的非理想因素」,吳重雨教授主講的「納米時代中研究領域的尖端——源於人類智慧的智能系統蕊片及20-100 GHz CMOS射頻集成電路」,以及由王志華教授主講的「據ISSCC論文分析集成電路在當今系統芯片的科技趨勢」。
