Course Description

The Chemical Engineering curriculum is developed in accordance with the requirements and guidelines provided by the Engineering Accreditation Council (AEC) under the Board of Engineers, Malaysia. The school offers a 4-year program to the level of the award of the Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical Engineering) with Honours leading to the following specialized fields :

  1. Separation Process Engineering and Catalysis
  2. Process Control Engineering
  3. Bio-process Engineering and Environment

The curriculum that involves all the three specializations has a good balance in terms of knowledge of science and engineering throughout the 4-year curriculum. Courses related to the specialized fields are offered during third and fourth years.

The exposures to the real industrial practices have been embedded through the industrial training and other industrial involvements. Students are required to undergo industrial training for at least 10 weeks in different industries. It gives exposure to the students about their role as a chemical engineer. In addition, students will also be exposed to chemical-related industries through industrial visits and lectures by industry. During their final year of study, students will perform plant design projects in groups. Here they will use all the knowledge of chemical engineering that they acquired during the previous learning and training.

The students are also required to conduct research in their final year. This provides ample opportunities for students to design and build a new experimental system in laboratories as well as the use of computers. The Final Year Project requires the collection of information about the progress in existing technology or a new technology.

To equip students to face the world of information technology, they are also trained to use a variety of software and programming languages, either as a special subject or as part of the courses offered.
