FACULTY OF CHEMICAL & NATURAL RESOURCES ENGINEERING

 

The Faculty of Chemical and Natural Resources Engineering (FKKSA) of UMP was established in 2002 with the aim of providing engineering programmes in the field of chemical and natural resources engineering. The faculty is also tasked to embark on research and development activities, particularly in the area of fine and specialty chemicals, chemical process up-scaling and biotechnology and gas technology-related processes in order to generate expertise relevant to the needs of the industry. In light of the establishment of the East Coast Economic Region (ECER), FKKSA is expected to play an important role as well as a reference centre for chemical and biotechnology-related activities. It will also serve as a catalyst for the development of these activities through programmes such as technology transfer, staff exchange, training, consultancy and other services

 

staff distribution 

 At the undergraduate level, FKKSA offers both diploma and degree programmes related to chemical and natural resources engineering. Currently, there are 1318 students enrolled in TWO (2) programmes offered:

  • Diploma of Chemical Engineering (Process Plant)
  • Bachelor of Chemical Engineeringvices relating to chemical and natural resources engineering.

FKKSA also offers postgraduate programmes at the Masters and PhD level in Chemical Engineering, Gas Technology and Biotechnology. The programmes are conducted in taught course and research modes with 78 postgraduate students studying on either full-time or part-time basis.

In terms of staffing strength, FKKSA has more than 100 lecturers with >85% PhD holder and diverse expertise but relevant to its requirements. A total of 11 expatriates with PhD qualification have joined the faculty to boost our academic strength. The academic staffs are loosely grouped into seven main sub-disciplines or academic panels, each being led by the most senior or experienced professor or staff in the sub-discipline. These panels are:

    • Process System Engineering
    • Separation
    • Reaction Engineering
    • Transport Phenomena
    • Gas Technology
    • Biotechnology
    • General
