Advanced Membrane Technology Research Centre (AMTEC), previously known as Membrane Research Unit (MRU) was established in 1990 in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Campus (UTMKL). Upon the organisation restructuring, the research unit has been moved to UTM Johor Bahru in 2002. In 2008, AMTEC has been upgraded as one of the Centres of Excellence (CoE) in UTM. The centre is established to generate new and exciting research projects related to membrane-based technology, to build research networks and collaboration with research universities/industries in Malaysia and worldwide.
