My name is Halinawati Binti Hirol. I gain my Ph.D in Civil Engineering from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) with a thesis title “Meshfree Formulation of Kinematic Wave for Channel Flow Routing”. I am also having a master’s degree in Hydrology Engineering from UTM with a thesis title; “Aplikasi Perisian Sistem Maklumat Geografi ArcView untuk Ramalan Aras Air Sungai: Kajian Kes Sungai Lui, Selangor.” and bachelor in Geoinformasi from UTM in 1999.
Now I am a lecturer at Faculty of Civil Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia for 16 years. I work in the IT Unit known as Information about Technology Unit of Civil Engineering (ITUCE), a member of the research group Industrialize System, UTM and Innovative Engineering Research Group, UTM. I am teaching the subjects such as GIS for Civil Engineering, Computer Programming, Information System, Civil Engineering Drawing and CAD Management.
My expertise is in Geographic Information System, Engineering Information System, Computer Programming (MatLab, Maple, VBasic, C++, C, Basic, Fotran, HTML, MySQL and PHP), Design Software such as AutoCAD, Adobe Photoshop and GIMP. I am also an expert in Computational Method such as Finite Element, Finite Difference, Meshfree/Meshless Method. And also expert in Information System Development such as Development of Database System, Development of Industrial Building System and Building Information Modeling.
My research interests include GIS application in Civil Engineering Works especially in Hydrology and Environmental Study. I am also interesting in the Development of Information System such as Development of Database System, Development of Industrial Building System and Building Information Modeling. And also has an interest in research using the application of Numerical techniques to Civil Engineering Problem such as hydrology, Environment and Geophysical.
