MASTER / DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN GAS ENGINEERING

Gas engineer has been in high demand to meet the increasing manpower requirement to support the numerous gas projects. These are in the area of gas liquefaction, gas processing, petrochemical processing and the delivery of gas to the power plant, industrial user, commercial center, domestic consumer throughout peninsular Malaysia. A combination of chemical process and gas engineering knowledge make it a uniquely distinct engineering discipline as the graduate can work as a chemical and process engineer as well as gas engineer for transportation and gas utilization.

Knowledge in gas engineering will enable the graduates to work  in petrochemical industries, oleo chemical industries, manufacturing industries, governmental and private sectors. Our graduates can apply to company such as PETRONAS, SHELL, EXXONMOBIL, Energy Commission of Malaysia, Gas Malaysia Sdn Bhd,  SIRIM, DOSH, NIOSH, Consultant company and service industry. Moreover, graduates can also involve in teaching and R&D at higher learning institutions and research centers.

Benefits:
Graduates are expected to work in various areas such as in gas and chemical engineering, membrane manufacturing for water and gas purification, advanced material for water and gas purification and energy application, gas transmission and distribution system, development of adsorbent for water and gas application, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) development and application, waste combustion, storage system, industrial process tomography, explosion protection and mitigation, corrosion of metals, nondestructive testing (NDT) and radiation, safety and risk assessment and biomass to biofuels.

 

Career opportunities:
Graduates are expected to work in various areas such as in gas and chemical engineering, membrane manufacturing for water and gas purification, advanced material for water and gas purification and energy application, gas transmission and distribution system, development of adsorbent for water and gas application, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) development and application, waste combustion, storage system, industrial process tomography, explosion protection and mitigation, corrosion of metals, nondestructive testing (NDT) and radiation, safety and risk assessment and biomass to biofuels.
