University of Nottingham Malaysia
The programme has been designed to assist holders of relevant degrees in science and engineering to upgrade their academic qualifications and enhance their professional standing. You will gain skills in advanced engineering practice including design, operations, problem-solving and practical elements. The advanced practice is centered on themes within energy and environmental applications allowing you to gain significant experience in areas such as carbon capture, energy efficiency, food and pharmaceutical engineering, nanotechnology, process optimisation and water treatment.
Why choose this course?
The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering is a leading centre for the development of industrial processes and applications in energy, sustainability and environmental engineering.
Our taught postgraduate programmes produce high quality engineers who will graduate with the advanced skills and training demanded by industry and organisations all over the world.
The programme is operated on a modular basis and consists of two semesters during which you will follow a series of taught modules followed by an individual research project, undertaken during the summer period. You will be taught using the latest advances in teaching methods and electronic resources. You must choose modules worth a total of 80 credits. To meet IChemE’s further learning requirement, you must include 40 credits of specified modules designated as chemical engineering depth. You must also complete the Research Planning module (10 credits) and the Group Design Project (30 credits) before undertaking an Individual Research Project (60 credits), leading to a total of 180 credits for the programme. If you have taken any of the modules as part of a BEng/ MEng degree programme at the University of Nottingham, you are not allowed to take those modules for a second time.

Where you will learn
Semenyih Campus is 48km from Kuala Lumpur International Airport and just 45 minutes’ drive from the famous city centre with its iconic Petronas Twin Towers. On arrival, you are immersed in the green jungle backdrop that Malaysia provides with wildlife, sunshine and campus lake.
The campus is home to our business, education, science and engineering schools, which sit alongside a sports centre, library and student accommodation. The University has everything a modern day student could wish for with the added bonus of being located in central Asia allowing you to travel further afield in your free time.
Public transport is plentiful with free shuttle services operating on some routes. Taxi/Grab services in Malaysia are very reasonable and used widely by the student community.
