Diploma in Chemical Engineering (EH110)


Programme Details

The profession of chemical engineers uses the knowledge of mathematics and natural sciences gained through study and practical experience and this knowledge is applied through analysis and design to solve problems as well as to develop processes and systems for the benefits of mankind. To help the chemical engineers in the chemical industries, a large number of skilled technical personnel are very much required. Realising this need, we designed a curriculum towards the conferment of the Diploma in Chemical Engineering. The first intake of students in Universiti Teknologi MARA Sarawak began in 2007. This programme also is offered at the UiTM Pasir Gudang, Johor and UiTM Bukit Besi, Terengganu campuses. This is a three (3) year programme which consists of six (6) semesters. For final semester, students are required to undergo the industrial training to complete their Diploma programme. The engineering courses are structured into three categories namely concepts and theories, humanity and liberalisation as well as competency and skills courses.
