Dr. Nur Hazliza Ariffin

PhD in UKM was a very well-rounded experience. I had the opportunity to work on a research topic that I was passionate about, with a great supervision and support team. I was part of an emerging engineering lab, which allowed me to learn a lot of new skills outside the scope of my research. The best part of my PhD journey was collaboration with industry partners including opportunity representing UKM in PECIPTA competition and winning the finals. That was a great confidence booster for my work.

Dr. Abdullah Amru Indera Luthfi

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.

Dr. Ho Kah Chun

I am truly grateful to join UKM in Chemical and Process Engineering for my postgraduate program since 2016.
