|January and September|
Our planet is facing threats from various quarters, including direct pollution of the environment, the air we breathe, the water we drink, energy resources, and land cultivation. The programme at UniKL is the application of science and chemical engineering principles to improve the environment (air, water, and/or land resources), to provide healthy water, air, and land for human habitation and for other organisms, and to remediate polluted sites. The programme also involves water and air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, and public health issues. Graduates from this programme conduct hazardous-waste management studies to evaluate the significance of the such hazards, advise on treatment and containment, and develop regulations to prevent mishaps.
The outstanding curriculum at UniKL provides students with a comprehensive academic foundation that combines coursework with hands-on experience in the basic sciences and the fundamentals of chemical engineering, as well as opportunities to study in specialized areas such as environmental engineering. Exceptional educational and industrial training facilities on campus include bioreactor, Freeze Dyer, Tangential Flow Filtration, Gel Electrophoresus Unit & Imaging System and Rotary Ivaporator.

UniKL graduates who are :
Programme Learning Outcomes (PLOs)
Majors in chemical engineering will be able to:
Job opportunity for graduates in this field is available in any government and private sectors. In government sectors, graduates can work as enforcement officers with Department of Environment (DOE) or others. These are also job opportunities offered by private sectors such as Environmental Technologies Officers, Environmental Safety and Health Engineers, Safety Officers, Environmental Engineers and as a consultant in consultancy firms.
Almost all of the multi national companies (MNS), small and medium companies (SMI) are very concerned about the environment, therefore the need of expertise is in demand. This course will offer a lot of job opportunities.
