Quarterly recap

Brandon Van Leer's FEI workshop at MCN.
MCN farewells Dwayne Kirk.

The highlight of the last quarter at MCN was September’s seminar offerings. International speakers Dr Walter Riess (IBM - Zurich) and Brandon Van Leer (FEI) presented on the current and future nanotechnology landscape, and Brandon also gave a hand-on workshop on FEI’s proprietary software. Over at the Monash Clayton campus, international visitors from Tanner EDA/Mentor gave a two-day L-Edit workshop, focusing on advanced layout generation.

This quarter, MCN also farewelled Managing Director Dwayne Kirk. Under Dwayne’s leadership, MCN developed a strong and consistent user base, successfully implemented LEAN practices and achieved ISO 9001: Quality Management Systems certification, and added cutting-edge technologies to its capabilities. MCN wishes Dwayne all the very best for his new role as CEO of Amaero Engineering Pty Ltd.
