Malaysia needs Engineers with the expertise and skills to work out solutions to fix environmental problems, reduce the negative impacts and improve the quality of life for everyone.
With so many degree options out there, here are some top reasons why you should study Environmental Engineering:
Environmental Engineering is an immense field, where any part of nature can be enhanced and worked upon. As an understudy, you can discover a considerable measure of specialisations, such as waste administration, water supply and treatment, wastewater treatment and air contamination administration.
You will be trained to specialise in Environmental Engineering where you get to utilise your insights and mastery to handle provincial and worldwide issues such as environmental change, ozone consumption and corrosive rain.
Are you an avid believer of the saying ‘prevention is better than cure’? Well, it’s not only applicable for health but also for the environment. You’ll be like a psychic superhero secretly saving people from disasters even before it happens.
"Industrial society seems likely to be entering a period of severe stress, due in part to problems on human behaviour and in part to economic and environmental problems"
Important Note: Diploma is not offered for this course. Students can enrol for a pre-university programme in science stream, specifically a Foundation in Engineering, before applying for a degree in Environmental Engineering.
It is not necessary for you to do your postgraduate but becoming a professional engineer by registering at the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) will definitely help you advance in your career
You have the desire to see the world as a more eco-friendly environment to improve the quality of live for people, animals and nature. You’re sick of people just talking about how they wish this world would be a better place where the air would be clean and sea would be crystal clear. You’re tired of hearing people pass away at an early age due to illness caused by pollution or natural disasters.
Are you always inquisitive, wanting to find out what is the root cause of the problem instead of covering it up with a temporary solution? Even if someone were to give you an answer, you know that the real reason is something much more than that. You’re not satisfied until you get the right answer. Well, to be an environmental engineer, you’ll need to possess this skill so you can identify the environmental issue and get right to solving it.
Are you and nature one? Do you like the smell of soil even on a sunny day? Well, then studying this course would be a breeze for you. Working outdoors would be the most exciting part of your job.
