Research Centre for Nano-Materials and Energy Technology


The Research Centre for Nano-Materials and Energy Technology supports the university’s sustainability efforts by developing nanomaterials-based new technology for sustainable energy. We are involved in the design, development, synthesis and testing of different nanomaterials that will be used to enhance various energy production and storage systems. We are led by Distinguished Research Professor Saidur Rahman, who is ranked in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in Web of Science and was conferred the Highly Cited Researcher Award 2017.

Our research is supported by external grants from Lancaster University Seed Corn Funding and internal grants from Sunway University. Some of our top international collaborators include Macquarie University (Australia), Auburn University (USA), Lancaster University (UK), King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals (Saudi Arabia), and Vellore Institute of Technology (India). We have also partnered with local universities including Universiti Malaya, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Universiti Malaysia Pahang and Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia.
