Honours & Awards

The Malaysia Water Awards are presented annually for outstanding contributions to Malaysian individuals or institutions in the field of water and wastewater engineering either in Research and Management.

Awarded by the Malaysian Water Association, the Malaysia Water Awards honour achievements in science, engineering, technology, education or public policy that have resulted in significant impact in advancing the science and practice of water and wastewater engineering at national and international level.
