My PhD journey has been an amazing experience, especially with helpful supervisor and faculty members. The technological advances and financial support I received during my PhD study was beneficial to complete my study on time and with excellent results. Hope my research contribution will develop sustainable material in additive manufacturing technology at FKAB, UKM.
I have learnt many of the skills pertinent to my career from my undergraduate studies in UKM. The Faculty and the Department have been continuously making improvements to the syllabus to reflect the needs of the industry as well. There are an abundance of resources available to UKM students in which when leveraged correctly can give students an added advantage when they graduate into the industry.

I feel blessed beyond measure to have taken Chemical Engineering for my Ph.D. study in the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment (FKAB), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. The collaborative and creative research environment fostered at FKAB made it a great place to do research activities and is excellent for intellectual development. Besides, the university holds a high academic standard and ranking worldwide and is a perfect place to educate students to become world-class researchers.
I am truly grateful to join UKM in Chemical and Process Engineering for my postgraduate program since 2016. During the program, I was granted full scholarship under Yayasan Sime Darby (YSD) “Sustainable Development” Postgraduate Scholarship and given Graduate on Time (GOT) for my PhD program. UKM is one of the top research universities in Malaysia equipped with renowned field experts and high-end analysis equipment to facilitate their postgraduates in conducting research.
