The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Built Environment (FKAAB) provides facilities that support teaching and learning, and caters to both research activities and consultation services. These expertly-run facilities are accessible to students, researchers and the industry. FKAAB has several laboratories that are used by our students on a daily basis for hands-on practical experience. These laboratories also form an auxiliary support system to our research centers, where our researchers use state-of-the-art equipment to focus on their exploratory and experimental research activities.


Close to 50% of the sprawling 21,066 m2 FKAAB building comprises of areas portioned for our 25 laboratories that mainly function as spaces for our students to conduct sample preparation, testing and analysis, through our student-focused, hands-on, experiential learning techniques. Furthermore, the laboratories are also used by our researchers for expanding their creativity and innovation. The laboratories are managed by the Laboratory Manager with the help of Assistant Laboratory Managers, and manned by skilled and qualified assistant engineers, science officers and laboratory assistants.

Three of our laboratories; Jamilus Research Center (JRC) Laboratory, Wastewater Engineering Laboratory and Advanced Materials Engineering Laboratory have received MS ISO 17025:2017 accreditation by the Department of Standards Malaysia.
