About AMMP

The AMMP Centre was established in 2002 with the aim of strengthening research activities in advanced manufacturing and material processes. The team has evolved from a small discussion platform of like-minded researchers to a fully operational research and consultation group in University of Malaya. Throughout the years, AMMP Centre has secured substantial research funding and commercialisation grants from both and international sources. In addition, the Centre has completed a number of consultation work with the industry in developing customised apparatus and solutions for their needs.
