Enhancing the Engineering Profession

May 5, 2022

First off, I am all for continuous education. However, if you are taking a Masters to enhance your first degree so as to be able to register with the Board of Engineers, Malaysia, please ask them first. And understand, if your first degree is NOT engineering, then this won’t help you towards your BEM registration.

And this is moot in the near future, as their will be no top-up allowance for unrecognized first degree.. unless you register as a engineering technologist, and then top up? Loophole galore.

Dateline 2022-03-XX, The Star:

THE engineering field is not just a competitive profession but it is also constantly evolving. Therefore it is important to keep updated with the latest headways in the industry.

One effective way of doing so is pursuing a higher degree to enhance career opportunities within the field.

Monash University Malaysia’s Master of Applied Engineering (MAppE) at the School of Engineering is designed for fresh graduates and working adults with science and engineering academic backgrounds.

Kasawari CCS shows hydrocarbons and energy transition not mutually exclusive

April 9, 2022

Dateline 2022-02-18, Upstream:

Petronas awarding parallel front-end engineering and design contracts for its Kasawari carbon capture and storage project offshore its native Malaysia serves as a timely reminder that the increasingly global decarbonisation drive is continuing to build momentum.

But it also highlights the ability of conventional oil and gas projects to continue to attract billions of dollars’ worth of capital expenditure, with demand for hydrocarbons looking set to prevail until at least 2050 and likely well beyond.

The Malaysian national oil company appears to be on track — as intended — to take the final investment decision later this year on Kasawari CCS (Kasawari phase two), which is being touted as the world’s largest offshore CCS project.


UTM – Survey Help

March 14, 2022

UTM needs some last hour help. Go figure.

I am now in the midst of conducting a rigorous study to improve our undergraduate Process Safety teaching in Malaysian universities. I need input, insights and opinions from the industries.

Could you help me with this study? The questions are very direct and simple but it means alot to our students and future engineers.

Here is the link to the questions:
