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.
