From:                       Ir. Dr. Anuar Kasa

Salam 1Malaysia,

I work at the National University of Malaysia (UKM) since 1993. Below are courses conducted by me at UKM.

(i) undergraduate  

Computer Programming (MATLAB)
Principles of Geotechnical Engineering
Foundation Engineering

(ii) postgraduate  

Slopes and Retaining Structures

(iii) researcher and others
 (short course)

Based on my experience in research and teaching, I take the initiative to offer short courses to researchers under my supervision and extend them to others so that we can learn and share the knowledge. By attending these courses, participants can save weeks of working hours that they need to learn by themselves.

Besides teaching, I'm currently leading these research projects:

Hybrid Neuro-Fuzzy System for Prediction of Earthquake Effect on Retaining Structures GUP
Shear Strength of GCL (Geosynthetic Clay Liner) FRGS
Earthquake Effect on Geosynthetic Reinforced Retaining Structures GUP
Development of Earthquake Base Isolators ERGS

Some of researchers who are working in these areas. They work towards MSc and PhD degree.

Master student from Sudan who predicts the stability of slopes using ANFIS
(Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System). Graduated in 2011.

 Master students who (1) use GeoStudio to predict the stability of slope due to earthquake,
(2) work on the stability of earth dam also due to earthquake (graduated in 2011) and
(3) analyze the performance of GCLs for landfill.

Master student who's working on earthquake base isolator.

Practicing engineer who's doing research (MSc) on embankment on soft soil.

PhD student who's studying the effect of earthquake on the stability of reinforced earth structure.

PhD student from Iraq who's doing research on soil improvement using
stone column for earth embankment.
