DC9 – Virtual electro-thermal failure prediction for automotive power modules on PCB
Guided by a desire to continuously learn, Syed Hassaan Abdullah delved into the realm of mechanics, culminating in the completion of his bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from a college affiliated with Osmania University in 2018. The historic city of Hyderabad had been his home for a little over a quarter of a century. However, his longing to expand the horizons of his thinking led him to the southern Alps in Austria. There, he completed his master’s in Systems Design (with a specialisation in Mechatronics) in March of 2023, from Fachhochschule Kärnten in Villach. As a master’s student, Syed Hassaan got the opportunity to undertake his master thesis at Silicon Austria Labs (SAL), which introduced him to the field of numerical modelling. As he delved deeper into his thesis work at SAL, it became clear that this realm of numerical modelling aligned with his research aspirations.
While his weekdays primarily revolve around his research goals, Syed Hassaan’s passions and interests extend far beyond academia. Among them, Islamic literature holds a special place in his heart. He possesses a profound curiosity for theology, philosophy, poetry, history, and politics, all of which fuel his intellectual pursuits.
“MIRELAI beckons me to weave the threads in the tapestry of microelectronics reliability, by developing numerical models, to decode the hidden strain; predicting failures, a symphony to sustain.”
