SEGi Engineers Tackle Wastewater Challenges at IWK Treatment Plant

On 14 March 2024, SEGi University’s Chemical Engineering students embarked on an enlightening excursion to the Regional Sewerage Treatment Plant of Indah Water Konsortium (IWK) Sdn Bhd in Bandar Tun Razak, exploring the critical processes of domestic sewage treatment.

Organised by SEGi IChemE Student Chapter and accompanied by lecturers Ir. Choo Chee Ming, Dr. Izni Atikah Abd Hamid, Dr. Nur Amirah Mohd Zahri, and Dr. Mohd Faizan Bin Jamaluddin, the visit offered a rare glimpse into the essential operations safeguarding public health and environmental sustainability.

Upon arrival, students were welcomed by Saoud Abd Latib, Corporate Communication Manager of IWK, who provided a comprehensive briefing on the organisation’s role in enhancing the quality of life by ensuring clean water for households and industries. The students then embarked on a detailed tour of the treatment plant, observing the primary treatment stage where large solids are removed, and the secondary treatment stage where biological processes purify the water. This hands-on experience deepened their understanding of the engineering and science behind wastewater management.
