Diploma in Chemical Engineering Technology
Diploma Teknologi Kejuruteraan Kimia
As Industrial Revolution 4.0 such as additive manufacturing, advanced material, big data, and advanced simulation continue to redefine industrial production, Malaysia’s chemical industry is increasingly searching for highly skilled manpower with Industry 4.0-ready skill sets to enhance its transformation.
In order support this, UniKL MICET will begin offering a 2.5-year diploma programme in Chemical Engineering Technology (DCET) in July 2021. The curriculum is designed to produce manpower with the requisite skills for economic and national development of the nation. The four major specialisations in the program are Sustainable Process Engineering, Biotechnology & Bioengineering, Advanced Material, and Environmental Engineering Technology & Sustainability.
This program’s courses are enhanced by embedding Professional Certifications including Smart 3D Modelling Software (Intergraph) and Ergonomic Trained Person. With credit transfer eligibility of up to 57 credits, graduates from this programme can continue and complete Bachelor of Chemical Engineering Technology at UniKL MICET in 2.5 years. This programme is also in line with the post pandemic socioeconomics drivers, which are focused on energy, smart technology and systems, water and food, environment, and biodiversity.
