Biography

Dr. Ng currently works at The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus. He obtained his PhD in Engineering Design from Cardiff University, UK, M.Sc in Manufacturing Systems Engineering from University of Warwick, UK and B.Engineering (Hons.) in Mechanical/Systems Engineering from Putra University, Malaysia. He is also a certified TRIZ Level 3 User and TRIZ Level 2 Instructor and has been involved in industrial research projects related to CAD, product design, machine and system design, manufacturing automation and artificial intelligence for many years.

Prior to joining UNM, Dr Ng has worked for many years in Sirim Berhad as a senior engineer. He has also worked briefly in Sony TV Malaysia as a mechanical engineer before he joined Sirim Berhad. He was a scholarship recipient of Sony TV during his undergraduate study and was a pre-service scholar of Sirim Berhad.

Dr. Ng has co-authored articles that won awards such as Young Writers Merit Award (5th INTERNATIONAL VISUAL INFORMATICS CONFERENCE 2017 (IVIC17)), Best Paper Award (4th International Conference on Electrical Engineering and Informatics 2013 (ICEEI 2013)), and the Best Manuscript award (Annual Conference on Engineering and Information Technology (ACEAIT 2014)). He was invited as Head/Member of the Evaluation Panel for the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) in the technical working committee for research grants such as Technofund, Sciencefund and Innofund in 2014 and 2015 and was a member of the technical evaluation task committee for MOSTI on automated rubber tapping in 2017.
