The industry and business rely on chemicals to create products for manufacturing, keeping Chemical Engineers in constant demand. Typical chemical examples include fertilizer production for farming and agricultural sectors, manufacture of cosmetics, fine chemicals, and pharmaceutical products, oil and petrochemical products and many other everyday goods.
The rise of green initiatives such as bio-based manufacturing, global challenges on sustainability under energy, food and water also provide opportunities for chemical engineers in these emerging areas. The recycling industry continues to grow as natural resources dwindle and pollution control for sustainable development becomes more significant.
We have crafted the SEGi BEng (Hons) in Chemical Engineering programme to produce individuals who are able to practise as an engineer in industries related to chemical engineering in the global market.
You will have the necessary technical competence to model problems, formulate solutions based on a system approach and conduct research, among many other qualities instilled through the degree programme.
This programme has been approved by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC), Malaysia.
Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)
The objectives of the programme are set based on the University’s Vision and Mission. The PEOs are shown as below,
PEO 1: Graduates who are are able to practice as engineering in industries related to Chemical Engineering globally
PEO 2: Graduates who are able to pursue postgraduate studies
PEO 3: Graduates who are able to register with BEM and subsequently become a professional engineer
Programme Outcomes (POs)
The graduates are able to demonstrate the following programme outcomes upon graduation.
PO1: Engineering Knowledge - Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
PO2: Problem Analysis - Identify, formulate, research literature and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
PO3: Design/Development of Solutions - Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
PO4: Investigation - Conduct investigation into complex problems using research based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
PO5: Modern Tool Usage - Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
PO6: The Engineer and Society - Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice.
