Centre of Excellence
Research Center For Applied Electromagnetics (EMCenter)
Enforcement of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) regulations on electrical and electronic products marketed in USA, EC, Japan and other countries poses extra challenges to local manufacturers. Failure to comply with the relevant standards will jeopardize exports to these important markets. To avoid non- compliance of finished products, EMC requirements should be considered at all development stages.
The EMC Center of UTHM was set up in July 2001 as the first excellent center in UTHM. This center started from small EMC research center and currently has expanded to offer EMC testing services to electronics and electrical industries in the region.
The main objective of the center is to perform research on EMC apart from providing compliance and pre-compliance EMC testing facilities for manufacturers to test their products throughout the design and production phases. EMC test will not only reduce the cost of testing failed products but also enhance the development and production capabilities of a company. In addition, the center offers value added services such as consultancy and troubleshooting for failed products. The center is headed by a professor supported by lecturers, tutors, an instructor, technical assistants and technicians. The center is committed towards achieving a nationally recognized institute by the end of 2015.
With the facilities from simple conducted transient tests to a 3-meter semi-anechoic chamber, compliance to the latest CISPR 16-4-1 (SVSWR) to perform radiated emission up to 6GHz and radiated immunity up to 3GHz, the EMC Center is ready to serve its customer for EMC Testing.

Microelectronics and Nanotechnology – Shamsuddin Research Centre (MiNT-SRC)
Microelectronics & Nanotechnology – Shamsuddin Research Centre or MiNT-SRC is one of the Center of Excellence (CoE) under the Institute for Integrated Engineering (IIE), Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM). It was established in November 27th, 2006. Formerly it was known as Microelectronic and Nanotechnology Centre (MiNTEC). In November 25th, 2007, the name of Microelectronic & Nanotechnology – Shamsuddin Research Center was effective as an acknowledgment to our university’s former chairman Y. Bhg. Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Ir Shamsuddin bin Abdul Kadir for his contribution to the university (2007-2009). He is currently appointed as first Pro-Chancellor of UTHM.
The research conducted in MiNT-SRC is multidisciplinary encompasses renewable energy, blue light-emitting-diode (LED) technology, sensors, bio-sensors, bio-nanotechnology, bio-engineering, thermal electric physics and electronic materials. We have various state-of-art analytical equipment for studying micro- and nanotechnology. The researchers from MiNT-SRC are mainly from 7 principal researchers, 11 senior researchers, 2 post-docs, 38 affiliated researchers and postgraduate students from Faculty of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (FKEE) and Faculty of Art, Science and Technology (FAST).
The researchers, students, assistant engineers and laboratories are in the same building which provides huge opportunity for interactions between staffs and students. Under the Japanese Kohza’s system supervision, the students are structurally guided by seniors and supervisors in lab work and frequent research colloquium and symposium. The strong research culture within the center has enabled our students in Q1 and Q2 SCI-indexed journals.
Our research centre has strong collaboration with Shizuoka University, Japan via MoU for Double Degree Program. We received short-term and long-term student attachment from a few universities from Indonesia such as Universitat Riau and Universitat Sebelas Maret and Univeristat Noorul Islam Kaliga. Our researchers also work on industry projects for Sena Traffic System Sdn. Bhd. in solving the traffic counting problem. We welcome international research collaboration, visits and students/staffs attachment.
