Burhanuddin Yeop Majlis is a professor of microelectronics at the Faculty of Engineering. He received his Ph.D in microelectronics from University of Durham, United Kingdom in 1988, MSc in microelectronics from University of Wales, UK in 1980. and BSc (Hons.) in Physics from UKM in 1979. He was a Deputy Dean of Engineering Faculty from 1995 until 1997. He is also a Research Fellow of Telekom Malaysia Research & Development Division, and he was the director of UKM-TM Microelectronics Research Centre at the Faculty of Engineering, UKM. He was responsible in developing and planning the setting up of the clean room for research at UKM. He had attended intensive industrial training in GaAs MMIC design and manufacture at GEC-Marconi Material Technology Ltd. United Kingdom. He is a senior member of the Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineer (IEEE) and the Chairman of IEEE Electron Devices Malaysia Chapter from 1994 to 2006. He also Fellow Member of Malaysian Solid State Science and Technology Society (FMASS). He is the founder chaiman and President of Malaysia Nanotechnology Association (MNA) which is established in 2007. He initiated research in microfabrication and microsensors at UKM in 1995 and has also initiated research in GaAs technology with Telekom Malaysia. In 2001 he stared research in MEMS with substantial research funding of US$10 million from Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. His current interests are design and fabrication of MEMS sensor, RFMEMS, BioMEMS and microenergy. He has published four text books in electronics and one book on Integrated Circuits Fabrication Technology for undergraduate courses and more than 400 academic research papers. He is the founder of Institute of Microengineering and Nanoelectronics (IMEN). In September 2019, he was awarded Achievement in Academic Award 2019 from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Malaysia.
