Dr. Tin Hlaing (M63)
Saya joined the Mechanical Engineering Department in 1963. His colleagues and friends would call him “Byte” Tin Hlaing or “R” Tin Hlaing, since there was a senior Saya U Tin Hlaing (M59, GBNF) who headed the Agri Engineering sub-Department.
The elder saya passed away untimely because he could not get access to the two dialysis machines (reserved for VIP) and he could not get passport / visa in time to get medical treatment abroad. Those were the days.
Dr. Tin Hlaing moved to Singapore. He co-chaired SPZP-2002.
A few years ago, he became a Tone Kyaw. Another Dr. Tin Hlaing (Marine Technology) passed away in Singapore, and some RIT alumni sent condolences to their saya.
