B.Eng. Chemical, M.Eng. Chemical (Gas), Ph.D. Chemical Engineering


Dr Mukhlis A Rahman is an Associate Professor in Department of Energy Engineering, and Deputy Director of Advanced Membrane Technology Research Centre, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. He graduated in Bachelor of Chemical Engineering from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) in 2004. While in 2006, he obtained his Master of Engineering (M. Eng) degree, which later on, he was being appointed as a lecturer in Gas Engineering Department. In the end of 2007, he pursued his PhD study at Imperial College London, United Kingdom and successfully working on a project entitled “Ceramic Hollow Fiber Membrane with Micro-reactor Characteristic”, under supervision of Professor Kang Li. Ever since, he and his team have developed various type of ceramic hollow fiber membranes for water and gas separation applications. His current research focusses on ceramic hollow fiber membrane for desalination, and surface modification using crystalline and amorphous materials. His particular interest is in developing fundamental knowledge of membrane synthesis at interface.


Dr Mukhlis A Rahman also had been actively involved in multiple national and international level events as technical committees. Specifically, he participated as a committee in various regional and international conferences. Besides that, he also had been appointed as a district liaison officer of the Institute of Strategic Innovation Johor to assist technology transfer to community, especially to Kota Tinggi District. In addition, Dr Mukhlis A Rahman also have assisted Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia, a number of times, in preparing reports related to the impact of higher institution centre of excellence, a program initiated by the ministry. Furthermore, he has been appointed as a committee in the Malaysian Membrane Society (MyMembrane) for two terms.
