Associate Professor Dr. Nor Azman Ismail

BSc (Hons) Comp. Sc. Ed (UTM), MIT Info. Sc & Multimedia (UKM), PhD (Loughborough)
I’m a Deputy Director of Corporate Affairs (since April 2009) and Associate Professor at Faculty of Computing for about more than eleven years. I’ve made various contributions to the field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Image Retrieval and Webometric in improving the state of research, practice, and education (view my Publication).
As a Web Director, I think it’s supposed to be University Web Advisor. In the beginning, I thought it was a very strange job title. But finally understood that my function is to advise Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) on all things related to web presence and current technology.
My Greatest Challenges
During my time here at Corporate Affairs Office. I had two major challenges. The first was to establish university web team that includes a group of peoples with different background and interest. The second involved putting UTM web presence in top position within Asia continent of webometrics university ranking. Thanks Allah s.w.t, we were successful.
My Big Boss
I may be slightly a veteran in this line of recent web technology but I always feel young and I think it’s important to keep busy. Working with great university top management peoples at this University , there’s always something happening in the campus. When not at work, I love to read and home gardening.
