Professor Sing Kiong Nguang

BE (Hon I), PhD


Sing Kiong Nguang received his BE (with first class honours) and PhD degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Newcastle, Australia, in 1992 and 1995, respectively.

He has published 6 books and over 300 refereed journal and conference papers on nonlinear control design, nonlinear control systems, nonlinear time-delay systems, nonlinear sampled-data systems, biomedical systems modelling, fuzzy modelling and control, biological systems modelling and control, and food and bioproduct processing. He has served on the editorial board of a number of international journals.

He is the Chief-Editor of the International Journal of Sensors, Wireless Communications and Control.
