IEM Shout Out – 2017-07 Talk On Implementation of conceive-design-implement-operate (CDIO TM) framework for Chemical Engineering challenges


My technical division will be hosting a talk on the 26th July, 2017. It is worth 2 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The talk will be presented by Ir. Dr. Chong.

The conceive – design – implement – operate (CDIOTM) framework is implemented by educators to generate graduates, who are able to tackle complex engineering challenges. A set of 12 standards define this framework and how to implement it are useful for chemical engineers. Chemical engineers from the industry will be able to develop sustainable solutions using the structured framework. Several chemical engineering innovative projects are completed using the CDIOTM framework will be shared during the talk.

Medical Gas Piping System (MGPS) is required to deliver medical gasses supply to patients and surgical tools in hospitals. The medical gasses include oxygen, nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, Entonox, medical vacuum, anesthetic gas scavenging system, medical and surgical air. Since the gasses are delivered direct to patients the quality and reliability of the system is very important to ensure the live of the patients and the safety of the facilities.

Ir. Dr. Chong obtained his BEng (Hons) Chemical Engineering (Universiti Teknologi Malaysia) in 2007 and  PhD in Engineering from University of Nottingham. He also is a Chartered Engineer in UK and a Professional Engineer of Board of Engineers, Malaysia. He received President Award of Excellent from IEM for four consecutive years from 2013 to 2016. He also bagged the prestigious Vice Chancellor’s Award as ‘Taylor’s Most Cited Academic 2015’. His scholarly activities encompass leading research projects, spearheading academic collaboration with leading academic institution both in Malaysia and in the world. In his brief academic career, he published more than 50  international journals, conferences papers, technical bulletin/proceedings and book chapters. He is one of the CDIOTM leaders in Asia Region. His academic research interest is in the area of drying technology, energy, health and engineering education.
