Personal statement

Ho Kok Hoe is a senior lecturer in School of Engineering (Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering discipline) at Monash University Malaysia. He obtained his Phd in Engineering (Industrial Engineering, Operations Research and Manufacturing) from UTAR on 21 August 2021. Prior to his PhD, he obtained the financial assistance from Mybrain15(MyPhd) and supervisors grant (UTAR/UTP). He has more than 6 years of education experience with Wawasan Open University and SEGi College Penang and 17 years of industrial experience in process engineering skills (Polymer and Assembly Semiconductor). In industrial experience, he managed processes such as injection molding, printing, hot stamping, reflow oven, mounting, sawing, die attach, oven cure, wire bond, gel coating, lid attach including MEMs product technology operations. He has solved various problems at the factories and managed to obtain award as an outstanding performance employee for Carsem (M) Sdn Bhd (April 2017). In education experience, besides lecturing, he is involved as a program leader in school management tasks including maintaining compliance audit tasks with MQA requirement.His interest areas are manufacturing, industrial engineering, operations research, industrial 4.0 related topics, automation, robotics, modelling, simulation, statistics, mathematics, teaching and learning pedagogy improvement including industrial collaboration. He is a graduate member with BEM/IEM, Associate ASEAN Engineer with AER, and professional technologist (Ts) with MBOT. Occasionally, he is invited to review paper/articles from International Journal of Production Research (IJPR), Open Science Journal (OSJ), International Journal of Industrial Engineering:Theory, Applications, and Practice (IJIETAP) and Journal of Industrial and Production Engineering (JIPE).
