Dr Nik Mohd Ridzuan Shaharuddin received the B.Eng. (Mechanical Engineering—Marine Technology) degree and the Ph.D. (Mechanical Engineering) degree from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). In 2015 he joined the UTM as a senior lecturer, and currently, he is the Deputy Director of the Marine Technology Center and the programme coordinator for the Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering undergraduate program. His current research interests include air cushion vehicles, suspension hulls, advanced ship hull modeling, and vortex induced vibration. Among the undergraduate courses he teaches are Naval Architecture, Ship Structures, Ship Resistance, and Ship Engineering Drawing. He is also an active member in the Marine Technology Center’s towing tank testing consultations. He involved in both local and international industrial consultation works. He is also involved in the delivery of short courses on ship stability, freeboard and tonnage calculation for the local government and also a trainer for the Royal Navy of Oman’s CAD design drawing using Rhinoceros. In appreciation of his service to the Faculty of Engineering at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, he received the Excellent Service Award in 2019.
