Professor C. Y. Yue joined NTU in 1990 and is a full professor in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. He is the Singapore Programme co-Chair of the Manufacturing Systems and Technology (MST) Programme of the Singapore-Massachusetts Institute of Technology Alliance (SMA). He obtained his B.Eng (Hons) and PhD from Monash University, Australia in 1979 and 1983 respectively. From 1983 to 1990, he was with the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Hong Kong. He was Dean of School from 1999 to 2005 and Head of the Manufacturing Engineering Division from Nov 1995 to May 1999. He serves on review panels and expert committees of overseas and local research funding agencies. His research focus is on advanced materials, nanomaterials, nanomanufacturing and polymer microfluidic devices. He is a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers, Singapore, a Member and Chartered Professional Engineer of the Institution of Engineers, Australia, and a Chartered Engineer and Member of the Institution of Materials, Minerals and Mining of the United Kingdom. He was awarded the Singapore Public Service Award (Silver) in 2002.

US 2007/0009572 A1: Micro-Structured and Nano-Structured Surfaces On Biodegradable Polymers (2014)
Abstract: In embodiments of the present invention, a biodegradable/biodegradable polymer film may be used as a scaffold for tissue engineering scaffolds for engineering organized organs, such as vascular grafts, for example. In one embodiment, an ultraviolet (UV) resin made from a diacrylated biodegradable oligomer is molded into a flexible scaffold having cavities and/or channels.
