Guest Lecture on Distributed Systems

To expose our students to the various types of distributed systems and to provide in-depth knowledge of the subject matter, our colleagues from the School of Technology (SOT) invited Prof. Liew Chee Sun,  Head of Unit, High Performance Computing (HPC) and Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research & Innovation) of Universiti Malaya (UM) to conduct a guest lecture on cloud computing and grid computing.
Prof. Liew is an expert in the fields of  Data-Intensive Computing, Grid Computing, High Performance Computing and Distributed Computing. Throughout the session, he shared knowledge about current trends and technologies in distributed systems as well as real-time enterprise distributed systems around the world. Our final year students demonstrated high interest in the talk, as they were enthusiastic to direct questions and provide answers at the Q&A session.
Prof. Liew provided good insights of implementing cloud and grid computing in a distributed environment – this knowledge is extremely useful for our students who attended the session, as they will eventually join the future workforce as Cloud Computing professionals. Kudos to our colleagues, Mr. Umapathy Eaganathan and  Dr. Kuruvikulam Chandrasekaran Arun from the School of Technology (SOT) for coordinating this beneficial session.
