Hi Donovann,

According to the GMI website as you can view here, upon completing A-Levels there is a placement for students to apply to the University of Applied Sciences (UAS) in Germany. This university does indeed offer chemical engineering as a degree course. 

Hope this helps, and good luck!

Hi Ng Huiying,

Do you mean if there is a lot of mathematics in Chemical Engineering? If so, yes, Mathematics is a requirement in Chemical Engineering. You will likely be involved with a lot of measurements and calculations of chemical components, as well as the application of physics in the engineering portion of the course.

Hi Nurul Emirah,

It's often believed that chemical engineering is difficult as it requires more subjects for you to master (Physics, Maths AND Chemistry) than Civil and Mechanical Engineering, for example, which requires mostly Physics and Maths. If you are interested in all the the three subjects, then Chemical Engineering may just be for you.

However, as with all courses, once you get the hang of the subjects, it will surely get easier. The workload may be heavier than most engineering courses, but managing your time between studying and leisure can help you get through the course with ease. 

You can read more about Chemical Engineering course here: https://afterschool.my/chemical-engineering. Chemical Engineering is offered at many universities in Malaysia, such as UTP, UKM, Curtin University Malaysia.

Hope this helps, and good luck! Let us know if you need any further assistance.

Hello Ariffin,

Although it is possible to change the location of your university for government universities, there is a very slim chance that it will be approved. This is because you will need a valid reason for why you want to transfer to another university, and the university you want to transfer to will have to determine if your reason is serious enough to be approved.

But, there is no harm in trying, so you can try to apply for transfer; just keep in mind that the chances of approval are very low. Here is a step-by-step guide on how you can switch universities, and a draft letter to help you apply for the transfer. The valid reasons for transfer are included as well: Click here

Hope this helps. We wish you all the best!

Hi Looi,

According to UPM's website, the Bachelor of Chemical Science combines the physical, analytical, organic and traditional organic fields. You'll also learn contemporary chemistry courses such as polymer chemistry, chemical kinetics, thermodynamic chemistry and computing chemistry. To enrich this experience, students are required to choose a course from the field of environmental chemistry, food chemistry or applied chemistry. Examples of elective courses offered are Industrial Chemistry, Catalysis, Food Bioprocess, Chemistry and Food Macro Components Analysis, Environmental Impact Assessment, and Marine Chemistry.

As for Bachelor of Petroleum Science, students will get to study a combination of basic chemistry (physical, analytical and organic) with emphasis on petroleum and petrochemical industries. It focuses on providing students with detailed theoretical knowledge, site visits or case study experience on topics such as the Chemical Technology Principle, Petroleum Chemistry, Petroleum Refining Processes, and Petrochemical and Oil Spill Controls. Elective selection courses offered are Polymer Engineering, Gas Engineering and Petroleum Engineering, Safety and Risk Assessment, and Toxic and Hazardous Poison Management.

Both courses are similar. The former is more towards studying the general field of Chemistry while the latter is focused towards the petroleum industry which is also chemical based. Here are your career opportunities for both courses:
- Chemist
- Science officer
- Laboratory Executive
- Academic Staff
- Marketing and Technical Officer
- Scouting Officer
- Training Officer
- Administrative and diplomatic officer
- Forensic Scientist
- Environmental Control Officer
- Education Services Officer
- Quality Control Officer

You can work in an oil and gas industry but you are not a chemical engineering. You can only be a chemical / petroleum engineering is by studying engineering.

Hope this helps

Hi Foo Yoong,

The top engineering universities in Malaysia are UM, UKM, UPM, USM, UTM and UTP according to Times Higher Education and QS World University Rankings. If you want to limit it to only those in Kuala Lumpur, then there are not many choices to choose from. Institutions in Kuala Lumpur offering this course are UCSI, Herriot-Watt, TAR UC, UniKL, UM and Nottingham. The best among these is, of course, UM.

Hope this helps.
