This program aims to produce skilled workers at the professional level who have strong knowledge in design, operation, improvement and conservation of processes involving chemistry at the macro manufacturing level as well as related fields that are growing in line with the National Industrial Policy, Industrial Master Plan, Science Policy and National Technology and Food Agro Policy. In line with that, graduates are able to apply knowledge and skills to solve engineering-related problems. Chemical Engineers differ from the work of chemists, where Chemists perform on a small scale, while Chemical Engineers perform on a larger scale for industrial purposes.
The curriculum structure has been formed emphasizing on theoretical understanding and applied through laboratory practice, computer-assisted learning, workshop, industrial training and projects based on design or technology and engineering problem solving. Graduates have broad job prospects where the need for professional manpower in the field of chemical engineering is very high in line with the government's goal of developing the industrial field. It is estimated that Malaysia needs at least 200,000 engineers to achieve developed country status by 2020. Currently, there are only 70,000 engineers registered in the country.
PEO1 - Engineering graduates engaged in the field of chemical engineering as demonstrated through career advancement.
PEO2 - Engineering graduates who are members and contribute to professional society.
PEO3 - Engineering graduates embracing in life-long learning or pursuing continuing education opportunities.
Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to defined and applied engineering procedures, processes, systems or methodologies.
Identify, formulate, research literature and analyse broadly-defined engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using analytical tools appropriate to their discipline or area of specialization.
Design/ Development of Solutions
Design solutions for broadly-defined engineering problems, and to design systems, components or processes to meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, as well as cultural, societal, environmental and sustainability concerns.
Conduct investigations of broadly-defined problems; locate, search and select relevant data from codes, data bases and literature, design and conduct experiments to provide valid conclusions.
Modern Tools Usage
Select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to broadly-defined engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations.
The Engineer and Society
Demonstrate understanding of the societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to engineering technology practice and solutions to broadly-defined engineering problems.
Environment and Sustainability
Understand the impact of engineering solutions of broadly-defined engineering problems in societal and environmental context and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
Understand and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering technology practice.
Individual and Team Work
Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse technical teams.
Communicate effectively on broadly-defined engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, by being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
Recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in specialist technologies.
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering
Project Management and Finance
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team and to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
