Nazih Khaddaj Mallat, Ph.D

Vice President, Accreditation and Quality Assurance

Al Ain Campus


His main research interests are passive microwave/millimeter-wave circuit, antennas, filters, and telecommunications systems, where he authored or co-authored over 60 publications. He has acquired extensive teaching experience at both undergraduate and graduate levels. He has effectively taught many courses, and their relevant practical elements in laboratories at multiple Montreal universities (ETS, TELUQ, Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal). He was the vice-chair of the IEEE Montreal Section 2007-2008, Membership Development Chair in 2009-2010, and Section Chair in 2011-2012. He has served also in the steering committee of many IEEE international conferences. In 2013, he joined the College of Engineering at “Al Ain University (AAU)” in “United Arab Emirates (UAE)” as “Assistant Professor”, and was promoted to “Associate Professor” in 2019. He was the Head of “Networks & Communication Engineering and Computer Engineering” Department (2013-2017), Deputy Dean- College of Engineering (2014-2015), Dean- College of Engineering (2015-2018), Director- Quality Assurance and Institutional Research Center (2018-2020). Since November 2020, he is the Vice President for Accreditation and Quality Assurance. He is the founder of the IEEE AAU Student Branch and the IEEE UAE MTT-S Chapter (and later the IEEE UAE MTT-S & IM-S & AP-S Joint Chapter). He was the “IEEE UAE Technical Activities Coordinator” (2015-2018), and the “IEEE Region 8 Chapter Coordination Subcommittee Chair” (2015-2016). He was the Organizing Committee Chair of three major events held at Al Ain University: “1st IEEE International Workshop at AAU (Feb. 2014)”, “11th IEEE UAE Student Day (May 2016)” and “16th Mediterranean Microwave Symposium (MMS2016 - Nov. 2016)”.
