Sr. Ts. Dr. Radzuan Sa’ari received his Certificate in Land Surveying in 1990 and Diploma in Land Surveying in 1994 from Politeknik Ungku Omar (PUO). Then, in 1997, completed B.Sc. in Land Surveying from FGHT, UTM. In 2002, he completed M. Sc. in Land Surveying from FGHT, UTM. In 2016, he completed PhD in Civil Engineering (UTM), where he is working on the applications of Digital Close-Range Photogrammetry, Digital Image Processing and Analysis in Structure Deformation.
He has started his academic careers at UTM as a Research Assistant in 1997 at FGHT UTM, as Tutor (DA41) and Lecturer (DS45) at the Faculty of Civil Engineering UTM in 1999 and 2002, respectively. Currently, he is a Senior Lecturer (Ds52) in the Department of Water and Environmental Engineering, School of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, UTM since 2017. He then serves as Coordinator of Surveying Unit and course coordinator for Engineering Surveying, and Surveying Camp Courses from 2012 to date.
He is a member of Geotechnical Research Group (GRG), School of Civil Engineering, UTM. He is also members of Royal Institution Surveyor Malaysia (RISM), Graduate Member of Malaysia Board of Technologies (MBOT) and MBOT Professional Technologies (Ts.) respectively. He has involved in more than 42 research projects amounting to approximately RM 2.6 million, as a project member and one as project leader. Throughout the period he has involved in various research activities, he has played important role as a researcher with full commitment to support GRG Research Group.
His fields of interest are in surveying and mapping for various applications in supporting Civil Engineering fields such as Laboratory Experiments, Digital Image Processing, Engineering Surveying, Deformation and Monitoring Surveying, Hydrographic Surveying, GNSS Surveying, Digital Close Range Photogrammetry and Aerial Photogrammetry Mapping using Drone/UAV.
He has involved in various research and consultancy projects related to Geomatic Engineering, Civil Engineering and Engineering Education. Whilst most of the fund were obtained through UTM’s GUP and MOSTI’s FRGS, he also managed to involve as a project member in four contract research grants, two overseas grants and two local grants. This is an indicator of the acknowledgement of his expertise in solving problems in the industry. He has published 94 articles (26 Index Publications: Scopus and ISI, 64 technical papers (conferences, proceedings and technical report) and book chapters respectively).
He also has been appointed as referee for several conferences and journals such as Seminar Kejuruteraan Awam (SEPKA), International Conference Water Research (ICWR 2015 , 2018 & 2021), GEOTROPIKA 2019, International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (ICSIE 2018) (UTHM), 4th International Conference on Civil and Environmental Engineering for Sustainability (IConCEES 2017) UTHM and Journal of Sustainability Science and Management (UMT).
