Published by Afterschool.my on Aug 21, 2014, 12:52 pm

Engineering and technology continues to transform, both positively and negatively, the world we live in. There is an escalating demand for engineering talents especially those who can create solutions that help solve poverty and climate change. Chemical engineers are among those who have skills that can be used in practically in all industries. In general, engineering is one of those courses that holding most of the top positions in an organisation.

Here's a quick look at the fees of chemical engineering courses in Malaysia:


The Chemical Engineering degree programme o?ered at UCSI University is designed to equip students with fundamental engineering and scienti?c knowledge in the ?eld of chemical engineering.

In this programme, students are also required to undergo industrial training under UCSI University’s Co-operative Placement (Co-op) Programme at the end of their 2nd and 3rd academic years. The objective of the Co-op programme is to provide an avenue for students to gain exposure to professional practices in an actual working environment in addition to developing the necessary soft skills pertinent to their individual development. Student learning is also enhanced by industry visits, talks by prominent guest speakers from professional bodies, laboratory works as well as plant design projects, among other hands-on activities. All of UCSI University’s engineering degree programmes comply with the latest requirements for accreditation by the Malaysian Engineering Accreditation Council, which fulfils the international requirements drafted in the Washington Accord.


The SEGi UniversityBachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Chemical Engineering programme has been designed to produce capable engineer graduates for industries related to chemical engineering in the global market.

The SEGi University Chemical Engineering Degree has been approved by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC), which makes it recognised by the Washington Accord, of which Malaysia is already a member of. The Washington Accord is an international agreement among bodies responsible for accrediting engineering degree programmes. It recognises the substantial equivalency of programmes accredited by those bodies and recommends that graduates of programmes accredited by any of the signatory bodies be recognized by the other bodies as having met the academic requirements for entry to the practice of engineering.


The chemical engineering programme at UTAR covers the engineering principles required to develop, design, operate and control the processes and plants that involve molecular changes. The university aims to produce graduates with the ability to apply the knowledge of science and engineering fundamentals in chemical engineering.


Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP), which was established in 1997, has grown to be one of the most prominent private universities in Malaysia.UTP offers wide range of industry-relevant engineering and technology programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. UTP is ranked in the top 200 in the 2014 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Ranking by subject for Chemical Engineering.  For the 2014 QS Asia University Rankings, UTP is the only private university in Malaysia to be ranked in the top 200.


The engineering courses at Taylor's Universityhas been developed and enhanced from its 13-year experience of partnering with top engineering universities from the University of Birmingham, UK. The chemical engineering programme at Taylor's University is designed to equip students with a sound understanding of fundamental theories and concepts in chemical engineering, primarily the knowledge to transform raw materials into useful products efficiently and safely, with minimal environmental impact.


Located in Nilai, Manipal International University (MIU) is a globally-recognised institution. It currenly has over 30,000 students from over 53 countries. Known to offer medical courses, MIUnow offers programmes in engineering, business, life sciences. Its chemical engineering course focuses on integrating engineering principles with other sciences to develop new processes, optimise existing operations, and develop new products that are safe and environmentally friendly.


Chemical Engineering programs at Curtin University Sarawakcover the development, design and operation of processes and plant for the extraction, conversion and recovery of materials that are found in a great variety of process industries serving the needs of society.  Graduates of chemical engineeringmay expect to find employment with process and plant design companies or within the manufacturing industries to manage, operate, maintain and develop processes and plant for the efficient production of materials. Other opportunities for employment are afforded in public utilities and authorities, research laboratories, academic institutions and consulting practices.


The common first year lays a foundation in the basic sciences of mathematics, physics and chemistry and introduces the disciplines available to you for further study. Students at Monash University, Malaysia will learn to apply their developing maths and science knowledge to real-life problems and begin to understand the interaction between engineering and society. Upon graduation, students will find career opportunities in biotechnology, building and construction, computer programming, food processing, manufacturing, mining, nanotechnology, power generation, robotics, sustainable technologies, telecommunications and transport.


Chemical Engineering has been established at The University of Nottingham since 1961. They have a long history of collaboration with industry and their graduates gain jobs with major companies. The programme offered at the Malaysia Campus is exactly the same as the degree offered in the UK. Flexibility is a key feature with combined entry to BEng/MEng and all students follow the same course of study until the end of the second year. At the end of the second year students may choose to pursue the BEng or the MEng.
