Prof. Mohd Nasir Tamin earned his doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics from the University of Rhode Island, USA in 1997. He has been with the School of Mechanical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia since 1984. Prof. Nasir's research team activities focus on the development of constitutive and damage models for ductile metals and fibrous composite laminates.
He leads his research team on few successful research collaborations with industries including Intel Technology on the development of a validated methodology for reliability prediction of microelectronic BGA packages and through-silicon via (TSV) interconnects, with Kiswire (Korea) for fatigue life improvement of steel wire ropes, and with Airbus and Aerospace Malaysia Innovation Center (AMIC) for damage detection in FRP composite laminates using the digital image correlation technique (DIC).
Prof. Nasir has been invited as a visiting researcher at Sophia University, Tokyo (Japan), a visiting professor at the Institut Supérieur de l’Automobile et des Transport, (ISAT), Nevers, France, Dongguk University, Seoul, Korea, and as a visiting research professor at the University of Southampton (Malaysia Campus). He is keen in promoting the university-industry collaboration, and the academic and research collaboration among colleagues across the globe.
