RETIRING STAFF – ASSOC. PROF. DR. NOR AZIAH BUANG

On the 7th of September 2016, a farewell luncheon was held by the Department of Chemistry in order to commemorate the retirement of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nor Aziah Buang.  Effective on the 16th September 2016, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nor Aziah will be retiring after 34 years of devoted service to UTM.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nor Aziah started working in UTM on the 5th of June 1982 as an Assistant Lecturer in the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, UTM’s Kuala Lumpur Campus. In 1987, due to the transfer of the department to the main campus of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in Skudai, Johor, Dr. Nor Aziah was then relocated to Johor.

Dr. Nor Aziah received her BSc in the field of Chemistry from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in the year 1980. A few years later, after only a short span of one year, Dr. Nor Aziah received her Master degree in 1985 from the University of Sussex, United Kingdom in the field of Chemical Science (majoring in Organometallic Chemistry). For her Doctorate studies, Dr. Nor Aziah received her PhD in Chemistry (majoring in Catalytic Chemistry) from a collaborative programme between Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Malaysia and the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom in 1999.

Dr. Nor Aziah will not only be missed for her excellent teaching expertise but especially for her ever-present good-cheer. We wish Dr. Nor Aziah a relaxing and well-deserved retirement. The Faculty will never be the same without her.
