Prof. Ir. Dr. Mohd Zulkifly bin Abdullah received the B.Eng. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wales, Swansea, United Kingdom in 1990, M.Sc degree in Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, United Kingdom, and the Ph.D degree in fluid dynamics also from the University of Strathclyde. He was a production superintendent with the Malaysian Sheet Glass Berhad, from 1990-1992 before he went to further his studies in United Kingdom. He joined the School of Mechanical Engineering, Universiti Sains Malaysia after completing his Ph.D degree in 1997. He taught a number core mechanical engineering courses such as fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), project design and numerical methods. He was appointed as an Associate Professor in 2003 and appointed as a full Professor of Mechanical Engineering in 2010. Currently, he is a principal investigator with the advanced packaging and surface mount technology research. He has authored or co-authored more than 260 technical papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings. His current research interests include CFD, heat transfer, electronic packaging, surface mount technology, electronic cooling and combustion. He has successfully established collaboration works with Intel Technology (M) Sdn. Bhd., Celestica (M) Sdn. Bhd. and Jabil Circuits (M) Sdn. Bhd. in the areas of electronic packaging and surface mount technology. Because of his well known in the field, he has been invited to give keynote/invited lectures at University of Manipal, India, National Institute of Technology, Calicut India, University of Tarumanangara, Jakarta Indonesia, University of Kuala Lumpur (MSI), Kedah Malaysia and Intel Technology (M) Sdn. Bhd., Penang Malaysia. He is also involved in consultancy works with 5 companies in Malaysia related to his expertise.
