Bachelor of Chemical Engineering Technology (Environment) with Honours

Sarjana Muda Teknologi Kejuruteraan Kimia (Alam Sekitar) dengan Kepujian

The UniKL MICET’s Bachelor of Chemical Engineering Technology (Environment) with Honours is an interdisciplinary programme that prepares students for careers in applied environmental engineering by teaching them essential problem-solving skills that are required in regional and national industries, manufacturing, government, and engineering services firms. The application of engineering concepts to the solution of practical problems is the program’s main emphasis. Students will learn how to apply engineering, mathematics, geoscience, chemistry, physics, and biology to a range of environmental problems through hands-on applications and interdisciplinary coursework. Students investigate the impact of emissions on humans and habitats, devise methods to change processes to eliminate or mitigate negative effects and devise long-term alternatives to resource management. Besides, the programme emphasises teamwork, academic writing, and project management. The major’s mission is to produce well-rounded engineering technologists who can adapt and thrive in a highly competitive environment.

To complete a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering Technology (Environment) with Honours, students can benefit from partnerships with international and local technical universities and local industry. Students can have several opportunities for internships, co-op experiences, and jobs after graduation as a result of these partnerships.

Career Information

Job opportunity for graduates in this field is available in any government and private sectors. In government sectors, graduates can work as enforcement officers with Department of Environment (DOE) or others. These are also job opportunities offered by private sectors such as Environmental Technologies Officers, Environmental Safety and Health Engineers, Safety Officers, Environmental Engineers and as a consultant in consultancy firms.

Almost all of the multi national companies (MNS), small and medium companies (SMI) are very concerned about the environment, therefore the need of expertise is in demand. This course will offer a lot of job opportunities.
