In Department of Chemical Engineering Technology, the only focus group namely 'Biotechnology-Sustainable Material (B-SMAT)' represents the department for enhancing research activities mainly in biotechnology and material. Our vision is to aim on improving achievement for an increased key performance index (KPI) of B-SMAT, which subsequently increases the rating and ranking of UTHM in QS World Ranking University.
