Chemical Engineer Heads UTM

MALAYSIAN CHEMICAL ENGINEER Zaini Ujang has been appointed vice-chancellor of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). The role begins immediately and lasts for three years. At the age of 43, he is billed as the youngest person to lead a Malaysian public university.

Zaini served UTM as deputy vice-chancellor for research and innovation from March 2007. Prior to that, he was dean of UTM’s Faculty of Chemical and Natural Resources Engineering, beginning July 2006, and director of UTM’s Institute of Environmental & Water Resource Management from 2001 to 2005.

On receiving the post, Zaini said: “I thank the government for being bold enough to appoint a relatively young person to the post of vice-chancellor. I will aim to improve the standard of higher education and implement the National Higher Education Strategic Plan.” This aims to improve Malaysia’s competitiveness, productivity and innovativeness.

Zaini received his undergraduate degree in chemical engineering at UTM, and went on to complete an MSC and PhD in environmental engineering at Newcastle University, UK. He began his academic career at UTM in 1988. He is lauded as a Malaysian expert in matters concerning water and wastewater treatment, and has held posts advising the government’s education department.
