Expert Profile


Dr. Nor Farahidah Za'bah, graduated from University Tenaga Nasional in 2002, Selangor started her career as a process engineer in Silterra Malaysia, Kulim Hi Tech Park, Kedah where she provided process-engineering support to the CMOS manufacturing team. In 2004, after receiving her MSc from Newcastle University, UK, she was appointed as a lecturer at University Tenaga Nasional. In 2007, she accepted an offer as a lecturer in IIIUM and a year later, she pursued her Ph.D in Newcastle University.
Her research focused on the fabrication of silicon nanowire using the top-down approach where she was exposed to work in a wafer fabrication and characterization facilities such as cleanrooms and using measurement tools such as AFM. She received her Ph.D in 2012 and currently, she is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, International Islamic University Malaysia.
