Process industries in Malaysia such as oil, gas and petrochemical and chemicals are major contributors to the development and growth of the nation. With an escalation of oil and energy prices, these sector industries are forced to be globally competitive to ensure their sustainability and ultimately to provide economic stability to the nation. There is a great need by professional working adults currently working in industries to improve their expertise/technical competencies.

One of important approaches to achieve competitiveness is through an application of knowledge of Process Integration to achieve better designs that will meet the calls for efficiency in the use of energy, efficiency in the use of materials and reduction of emissions. Process Integration is a systematic design methodology that addresses issues related to energy efficiency, waste minimization and an efficient use of raw materials. Currently the conceptual design stage is greatly facilitated by the use of simulations, either in a design of a new plant or in conducting improvement studies in an existing facility. However, the simulation approach suffers from lack of synthesis capability and inability to provide an overall contextual overview of the entire plant. This drawback at the conceptual design stage will have serious consequences in determining the environmental impact, economic viability and safety features of the final design. This program has been designed to overcome this gap.
