Saya U Tin Swe graduated with Electrical Engineering in 1953. He joined the EE Department as Assistant Lecturer.
He received MS from Michigan University.
He was promoted to Lecturer.
Due to scarcity of Professorships in those days, he retired as Lecturer.

He also played Tennis.
He was an early user at UCC. He and his former students Dr. San Oo (EP67), Dr. Thein Tun (EP67) and U Aung Kyaw Pe (EP69) worked on EP projects at UCC.
* He was wrongly called as U Tint Swe, U Tin Shwe and U Tin Shwe Gyi.
* U Tin Shwe (EP66, GBNF) thus became (wrongly) known as U Tin Shwe Lay.
* EC and EP later became Departments with their own Professors.

Dr. San Tint (GBNF) was the first EC / Electronics Engineering Professor.
