“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. Nur Hazliza Ariffin
