About Associate Professor Kashem Muttaqi

Dr Muttaqi received his BSc in Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Bangladesh in 1993. He then received MEng in Science degree from the University of Malaya (UM), Malaysia in 1997 and received his PhD from Multimedia University (MMU), Malaysia in 2001.
From 1996 to 1997, Dr. Muttaqi worked as an Electrical Executive for KTA Tenaga (Consulting Engineers) in Malaysia and then worked for Multimedia University, Malaysia as a Lecturer from 1997 to 2000.
Dr Muttaqi was associated with the Queensland University of Technology, Australia as a Research Fellow/Visiting Fellow from 2000 to 2002, and the University of Tasmania, Australia as a Research Fellow/Lecturer/Senior Lecturer from 2002 to 2007. In recognition of his skills in the sphere of teaching and learning, Dr Muttaqi was awarded a 'Teaching Merit Certificate' in 2004 from the University of Tasmania.
Dr Muttaqi worked as the Deputy-Director of the Centre for Renewable Energy and Power systems (CREPS) at the University of Tasmania before he joined the University of Wollongong as Associate Professor
