Dean's Welcome Note
Zulkafli Bin Hassan, CEng FEI SPE
Faculty of Chemical & Natural Resources Engineering
Welcome to the Faculty of Chemical & Natural Resources Engineering.
The faculty was incepted back in 2002 aimed at producing quality chemical engineers to cater for the chemical industry in the East Coast corridor. Today, we have grown by leaps and bounds into one of the largest chemical engineering schools in Malaysia in terms of qualified academic staffs as well as undergraduate intake.
Due to the ever-changing landscape of chemical engineering, we constantly strive hard to ensure that our graduates have the following four attributes:
- Demonstrate sound knowledge and high level of competency
- Function effectively at various capacities in a multidisciplinary environment
- Keep abreast on the state-of-the-art technologies and responsive to contemporary issues
- Adaptable to the changing needs of the local and global industries. Build capacity to give students a high quality (world class) education.
These four attributes have become the guiding principle for developing future directions of this faculty. Looking back at our achievements over the years, I am indeed very satisfied with the level of dedication, innovation and strength displayed by our students, staff and faculty members. As the Dean, I am committed to furthering the progress that we have made so far, and fostering an environment where the faculty itself will continue to achieve our shared goals of being a preferred institution to study, to do research and also to work. Along the way, we may have some challenges, but I believe that the opportunities always surpass the hiccups. With the support of senior administration, and the perseverance of our students, staff and faculty, we have all what is needed to move forward and to build one of the best engineering schools in the nation.
On behalf of the faculty, I hope you find this portal informative. If you have any enquiries, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to serving you and also hearing from you.
