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

July 20, 2017

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.

IEM Shout Out – 2017-08 Technical Visit to Yakult (M) Sdn Bhd

July 19, 2017

Yes, come and stock up before Hari Raya.

My technical division will be hosting a visit on the 19th August, 2017.

Yakult was born over 75 years ago and since then has been loved by 28 million of consumers overseas. However, in Malaysia, Yakult is still a young and growing company. Yakult Ace was launched here just a few years ago in 2004. Yakult (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Yakult Honsha, Japan. Yakult has committed millions of ringgit to establish and operate our one and only local factory in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan and our Head Office in Glenmarie, Shah Alam. Since then, we have opened branch offices in Johor Bahru, Melaka, Penang, Kuantan, Ipoh, Seremban and Kota Bharu. Yakult is a high quality probiotics in the form of a cultured milk drink. Yakult contains the probiotic bacteria “Lactobacillus casei Shirota” (also called the “Shirota strain”). With 30 billion live Shirota strain in each bottle, Yakult has among the highest concentrations of probiotics compared to other probiotics on the market (most probiotic drinks and supplements claim to contain at most 1 to 10 billion live probiotic bacteria per serving or per capsule). The Yakult factory was built specially with visitors in mind where the participants can view the whole production process and see how Yakult is being made and can even take a closer look at our bacteria using a microscope, enjoy fun and educational video shows, and sample some delicious, freshly-made Yakult.

IEM Shout Out – 2017-07 Talk On A Comparative Study: Offshore Facilities Load Out Methodology

July 18, 2017

aMy technical division will be hosting a talk on the 25th July, 2017. It is worth 2 CPD points (why is it shown as 0 on the web page?), and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Ir. Hj. Ahmad Khairiri.

The presentation will share the author’s experience in load out activities and its’ various methodologies. Load-out is the process of transferring offshore structure from fabrication yard onto the transportation barge/vessel and the process of structure’s sea fastening prior to sail away. The load-out process generates load-out forces on the structure as it moves from the fabrication yard to the barge.  Most often, these activities are performed at the fabrication yard which is located near the sea area.

Ir. Hj. Ahmad Khairiri is a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, United Kingdom, and a Professional Engineer with the Board of Engineers Malaysia. Currently, he is with Global Project Delivery, Project Delivery & Technology Division of PETRONAS. Responsible in ensuring the governance of onshore construction and fabrication work. Recently completed task include the load-out activities of F12, Angsi-Besar and Bardegg jackets and topsides. Previously, he was responsible to ensure the successful completion of the offshore installation hook up work for PETRONAS first floating LNG, PFLNG SATU Project. He was with PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd, OGP Technical Services Sdn Bhd and PETRONAS Gas Bhd involving in various project locally and globally.

IEM Shout Out – 2017-07 One-Day Course on One Day Transforming Presentation Skills Workshop for Engineers Using NLP

July 13, 2017

My technical division will be hosting a 1 day  course on the 27th July, 2017. It is worth 7 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Ir. Elias Musa.

This one day workshop will prepare you to communicate effectively and persuasively and be comfortable with your own style. Develop key presentation skill and learn how to present your ideas with conviction, control, and poise and without fear. Learn how to deliver with energy and keep the audience engaged. Best of all, you’ll gain confidence by making presentations.

Ir. Elias Musa earned a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Chemical Engineering in 1977 with Master Science and MBA, and has over 30 years of experience in plant /facilities project development in Oil & Gas Industry, including offshore and onshore production facilities, pipeline and gas processing plant GPP and LNG in Malaysia and Overseas. He has worked for clients as well as International design consultants. He is a certified Master Practitioner of NLP.

IEM Shout Out – 2017-08 One-Day Course on “The Design of Oil & Gas Fixed Offshore Structure”

July 12, 2017

Structural engineers, please attend.

My technical division will be hosting a 1 day  course on the 12th August, 2017. It is worth 6 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Assoc. Professor Dr Venkatesh Rajagopalan (Venkat)

The first offshore structure was built to extract oil in the 1930s. Since then, there are now more than 1000 offshore structures worldwide, extracting oil & gas under the ground to meet the world demands.  This one-day course will provide the audience with the basic principles in designing these fixed offshore structures.  It will be presented in a way that is comprehensible to the engineers who are with or without the oil and gas background.
The course will try to address some of the engineering issues that have to be considered when designing an offshore structure. Some of these issues are listed below:
– The environmental loads (such as wave and wind) and accidental loads (such as blast and fire) that the structure has to face throughout its design life.
– How the structure will be fabricated, transported and then installed at its offshore location.
– Technical requirements from the contemporary design codes and third-party certifications.
– The types of analysis that need to be carried out to ensure the structure can meet the above challenges.

Assoc. Professor Dr Venkatesh Rajagopalan (Venkat) graduated from Annamalai University, India with a degree in Structural Engineering in 1989.  He then obtained a post graduate degree in Engineering Management and Post-Doctoral in Structural Engineering from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He has more than 26 years of working experience in various roles.

He is currently a Senior Principal Structural Engineer at McDermott Malaysia. He has presented talks at various symposiums in India, Singapore and Australia on Design on Offshore structural related topics.
