NEW ENERGY SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING

NESE is an interdisciplinary engineering programme related to the efficient, safe, environmentally friendly and economical extraction, conversion, transportation, storage and use of energy, with an aim to increase efficiency whilst minimising negative effects on humans, nature and the environment.

The NESE programme at Xiamen University is supported by College of Energy, one of China’s top-rated new energy technology research insatitutions for education, R&D, and technology transfer. We are supported by a strong faculty, consisting of high-calibre researchers and engineering experts in the fields of clean chemical energy, nuclear energy, solar and wind energy, bio energy, energy economics, and energy efficiency engineering, all dedicated to high quality R&D in energy science and technologies.

We are working closely with many leading universities such as Australian National University, University of Cincinnati and National University of Singapore, and major industry players including EDRA ENERGY, +Plus Solar, Infineon, Petronas, China Southern Power Grid and Zhejiang Electric Power Construction Co. Ltd.
Our programme at Xiamen University Malaysia aims to develop highly flexible professionals with solid specialty knowledge, who are ready for employment in energy related industries or for pursuing scholastic endeavours in the same or related fields. At the end of the programme, students will be equipped with core theoretical knowledge and practical skills for the analysis, modelling, evaluation, design, development, and implementation of energy technology.

The department offers the following programmes:

BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING IN NEW ENERGY SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING(HONOURS)

MASTER IN NEW ENERGY SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING

DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN NEW ENERGY SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING


CHEMICAL ENGINEERING

Chemical Engineering (ChE) is a well-recognised branch of engineering that applies the core scientific principles of chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics to transform raw materials into useful or valuable end-products.  ChE covers the development, design and operation of chemical processing plants while considering elements such as techno-economic viability, operability, safety and sustainability for the extraction, conversion and recovery of materials. There is a tremendous demand for chemical engineers in many sectors of industry, including the traditional processing industries: chemicals, polymers, fuels, foods, pharmaceuticals, and paper, as well as other sectors such as electronic materials and devices, consumer products, mining and metals extraction, biomedical implants, power generation, education and insurance.

The ChE programme in Xiamen University Malaysia (XMUM) has been awarded accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) Malaysia and provides a cohesive learning and knowledge-building environment for the pursuit of quality teaching and research. Other than the set-up of advanced chemical engineering laboratories for teaching purposes, a Simulation Integrated Process Plant (SIPP) was also established in XMUM. The SIPP facility can be regarded as the first simulated process plant available in Malaysia catering for the training of chemical engineering students especially in the fields of process safety, control and instrumentation. The elements of Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0) are also embedded in some of the courses in the ChE programme. In addition, the programme is supported by well-qualified staff members who are experts in various research areas of chemical engineering, such as catalysis process, modelling and simulation, nanomaterials, membrane, biomass and bio-product development.

The department offers the following programmes:

BACHELOR OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING WITH HONOURS

MASTER OF SCIENCE IN CHEMICAL ENGINEERING (MIXED MODE)

DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN CHEMICAL ENGINEERING (MIXED MODE)

MASTER OF SCIENCE IN CHEMICAL ENGINEERING (RESEARCH MODE)

DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY (CHEMICAL ENGINEERING) (RESEARCH MODE)


All Chemical Engineering students can register as Graduate Engineer through the XMUM BEM e-BULK registration system.

The Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) is a federal statutory agency under the Ministry of Works Malaysia established under the Registration of Engineers Act 1967 (REA 1967). Amongst its primary roles are to register Graduate Engineer (GE), Engineering Technologist (ET), and Inspector of Works (IoW) and to regulate the professional conduct and practice of registered Persons to safeguard the safety, health, and interest of the public.
