Biography

Ir Dr. Peter W. Tse is currently the Group Leader of the Smart Engineering Asset Management Laboratory (SEAM) and the Director of Croucher Optical Nondestructive Testing Laboratory in the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management at the City University of Hong Kong (CityU). SEAM was established through generous donations from the industry of Hong Kong. The mission of SEAM is to provide support to industry for achieving near-zero breakdown of equipment and maintaining high quality services through the smart management of assets. As of today, SEAM has research collaboration/consultancy projects with over 30 international and local companies. Dr. Tse is the O-Committee Member of the Technical Committees of Non-Destructive Testing (TC 199), Safety of Machinery (TC 135) and Mechanical Vibration and Shock (TC 108) of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Currently he is a registered Professional Engineer in Canada, a Chartered Engineer in United Kingdom. He has been awarded the PCN (Personnel Certification in Non-Destructive Testing) Certificate of Competence in Condition Monitoring from the British Institute in Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) and completed the Vibration Training Course - Vibration Analysis Level 2 in according with ISO 18436 Part 2. As of today, he has published over 250 articles in various international journals, proceedings, and professional reports.

Research Achievements

My conference paper has won best paper award. Some of those published in SCI-ranked journals have won most downloaded and cited paper awards. As of August 2011, I had secured around HK$ 45 million (around US$5.8 million) in research grants, industry sponsorship and consultancy, generated around 250 research-related articles, provided knowledge transfers and licensing arrangements to 9 companies, and obtained 7 different kinds of awards. My research outcomes have been adopted by over 30 local and overseas companies, including the world largest oil sand exploration and production company, the Syncrude Canada Ltd. I have been recognized as a world-renowned expert in equipment fault diagnosis, signal processing, sensory design and engineering asset management.

Because of the high caliber of my foundation and applied researches, I have been invited by numerous conferences and professional organizations to be the Closing Keynote Speaker, Distinguished Speaker or Keynote Speaker. A number of them have provided honorariums/travelling expenses. I have also served as a conference co-organizer, international steering committee, scientific advisory committee and editorial committee member, and as chairman of a structured session for many local and international conferences. Moreover, SEAM® has enjoyed international recognition since forming the first global consortium on fault diagnosis and prognosis, which is linked with five renowned international research centers: in the USA, Canada, China and Australia (two centers). My research on signal processing, fault diagnosis and non-destructive testing has created impacts on research community and industry by prompting them to change their usual codes of practice in equipment maintenance and engineering asset management.
