Tone Kyaw Dr. Tin Hlaing

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.
