Engineering gender diversity: Take a step towards success at UTP

March 11, 2019

Dateline 2019-02-07, The Star:

Creating awareness of opportunities, offering mentoring and support, and having the infrastructure in place to allow women to return to work after starting a family can go a long way towards narrowing the gender gap in the engineering profession.

“On my first trip offshore, I was the only woman on a CAT3 barge of over 200 men – and the prettiest one on board,” Hani Zahira Zaharudin recalls. Though the 26-year old project engineer’s anecdote is laced with humour, it reflects the more serious reality of the gender gap prevalent in the engineering profession.

IEM Shout Out – 2019-01 Technical Visit to Pengerang

December 31, 2018

My technical division will be hosting a visit on the 28th January, 2019. Aaand, it’s with MOGEC, y’all all.

IC is PETRONAS’ largest investment in Malaysia, located in Pengerang, Johor and forming part of Johor state’s ambitious Pengerang Integrated Petroleum Complex (PIPC). The PIC project is designed to produce premium differentiated petrochemicals; meeting domestic demand for petroleum products and the Malaysian government’s future legislative requirements on the implementation of Euro 5. With an investment of USD27 billion, PIC supports the Government’s overall Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) and will position Malaysia to capitalize on the growing need for energy and commodity petrochemical products in Asia in the next 20 years.  This will spur the growth of Malaysia’s Oil and Gas downstream sector pushing Malaysia into a new frontier of technology and economic development.
