Upon completion of the Bachelors Degree, he was offered 2 scholarships to continue his studies to the PhD level, one was a tutorship from the University of Malaya and the other was the Drapers Scholarship from the University of London. He chose the tutorship, as his ambition was to contribute to the nation after his studies. He researched in the area of Power Systems Engineering and was awarded the PhD degree from the University of London in July 1982 and thereafter he returned to Malaysia to serve the University of Malaya.

His career began with the appointment as a lecturer in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Malaya in 1982.

In this position, he was responsible for the physical development whereby he secured financial allocations from the government and managed the construction and renovation of many buildings and physical infrastucture for various faculties and centers in the University.
