Dr. Norshakila Haris

HoS/ SENIOR LECTURER

Dr. Norshakila Haris is currently a Senior Lecturer and a Head of Section with the Marine Electrical and Electronics Technology (MEET) Section. She received the B.Eng. (Hons) degree in Electronics Engineering from Cardiff University of Wales, U.K and the M.Eng. degree in Electrical-Electronics & Telecommunications from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Malaysia in 2006 and 2008, respectively.

In 2017, she received her PhD degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from The University of Manchester, UK. She has been working with Universiti Kuala Lumpur Malaysian Institute of Marine Engineering Technology (UniKL MIMET) since July 2008.

Dr. Norshakila was a Secretary of IEEE Student Branch of The University of Manchester, UK from July 2013 until August 2015. Then, she became the first female Chair of the IEEE Student Branch of The University of Manchester from September 2015 until May 2017. Her research interests include three-dimensional multilayer integration and characterisation of CPW MMIC components for future wireless communications. She was among the three recipients who received the GaAs Association Student Fellowship at the 11th European Microwave Integrated Circuits (EuMIC) Conference in London, UK, in 2016. The award was given to recognize and provide financial assistance to international PhD students who show promise and interest in pursuing a graduate degree in microwave electronics.
