Bachelor of Water Resources Engineering Technology with Honours
Sarjana Muda Teknologi Kejuruteraan Sumber Air dengan Kepujian

The Bachelor of Water Resources Engineering Technology with Honours integrates the knowledge of planning, developing, distributing, and managing the optimum use of water resources and wastewater. The courses in this program are designed to expose students with the relevant physical science, technology knowledge and skills. The program proposed is in-line with the 11th Malaysia Plan 2016 – 2020

The water and wastewater industry in Malaysia have experienced restructuring involving the introduction of sustainable practices, energy and resource efficiency, and new green technologies which are all changes that require upgrading significant skills. Technical progress and the accompanying knowledge grow inexorably. Companies and service providers are forever developing new processes. The application of computers, and the corresponding hardware and software, are the developments which change the most. There is hardly any wastewater treatment plant in which the control and data management are still carried out manually on paper. Therefore, this program aims to equip the personal with higher technical and vocational skill level (HTVET) to cater the rapid emerging technologies in this industry
