career guide a chemical engineer

Engineering Series : Chemical Engineering

 

Chemical Engineers (video by MyCareerRx, Youtube)

In this series of Engineering Professions, today I would like to highlight profession of a Chemical Engineer.

Chemical engineering is a discipline of engineering that merges the knowledge of physical sciences and life sciences with mathematics and economics to produce, transport and properly utilize chemicals, materials and energy by converting raw materials into something that is of use and value.

Alright, so that brings us to the basic question, “What do Chemical Engineers do?” Perhaps the question you should be asking is, what don’t they do? They are involved in the manufacture of items of daily use such as deodorants, glues, paints and plastic just to name a few. They constantly seek to find ways of improving food processing techniques, and methods of producing fertilizers. They produce synthetic fibers, find more efficient means of refining petroleum products and help in the production of renewable energy.

If you enjoyed studying chemistry and balancing chemical equations then chemical engineering might be of great interest to you. It involves having a deep insight and knowledge of naturally occurring chemicals and their reactions and characteristics. But a chemical engineer doesn’t stop at that.

Chemical engineering is basically concerned with the detailed study of production, transformation and proper use of chemicals, materials and energy. So they will also learn a lot about  mass producing chemicals, fluid flow (transporting chemicals) – which involve a lot of maths and calculation. Plant design, one of the subjects,  would involve a lot of maths too

Chemical Engineers have a bright future ahead of them owing to their huge demand in giant industrial processing plants, petroleum refining, production and storage of renewable energy and in the industries involved in the manufacture of everyday products.

Here is a good video on The life of a chemical Engineer in University, the subjects taken, and also later on in working life. (Video by the Science House, Youtube)

In Malaysia, Chemical engineers are needed in many industries :
Palm Oil industry – United Plantations, Sime Darby, Unico

Household products manufacturing – toothpaste, soap, detergent, Food, oil, flour, basically most of the stuff you get in the supermarket food, and household area – which is a whole lot of stuff. – Unilever, Proctor and Gamble, Nestle, Henkel

Pharmaceutical Companies: Chemical Engineers are heavily utilized in Pharmaceutical companies – GlaxoSmithkline, Merck, B Braun, Pharmaniaga, Ranbaxy, CCM, Hovid, The Himalaya Drug Company 

Oil and Gas Industry – Mechanical Engineers are needed in all areas of this industry. Almost every component dealing with oil and gas extraction has a mechanical element to it. (Except at this moment of writing (Jan 2016) – the Oil and Gas industry is pretty much in a low, and firing is happening more than hiring. The salaries in this area is the highest, though.)

Chemical Producers – Fertilizers, Chemicals – example – BASF, CCM,  Titan Chemical Group

Mechanical Engineering Profession - Career guide malaysia

Engineering Series : Mechanical Engineering

The Evolution of Mechanical Engineering (video by Edwin Raju, Youtube)

In this series of Engineering Professions, today I would like to highlight profession of a Mechanical Engineer. (While the video above highlights more of the role of mechanical Engineers in the transportation industry, other major areas Mechanical Engineers are involved would be the Oil and Gas, Chemical, and Construction industries)

Mechanical Engineering is the most popular undergraduate degree in engineering; according to the American Society for Engineering Education. If you have a knack for cars, toys, robots, machineries and have often found yourself wondering about their mechanism and working principles, then you should seriously look into adopting Mechanical engineering as your profession.

Mechanical engineering deals with manufacture, design and analysis of mechanical systems through knowledge of physics, materials science and maths. Mechanical engineering involves having to design and analyze mechanical systems that are employed in virtually every system that we see around us. Their areas of expertise include designing products, discovering new and innovative solutions to human problems through research and development, overseeing the operations of large systems, supervision, generation, storage and transfer of energy

Mechanical engineers design and analyze their systems from every aspect through extensive use of CAD (Computer Aided Design) and take into account the potential outcomes that might hinder the proper working of systems and machines. (CAD is an area which our CAD Design Centre specializes in)

There are many disciplines of mechanical engineering at the disposal of mechanical engineers to select and specialize in. These sub disciplines include Mechanics, Mechatronics and robotics, Thermodynamics, design and drafting. You can opt to specialize in any one of these sub disciplines or form a combination of these sub disciplines that resonates well with your interests.

Below is a video of  Mechanical Engineer who is involved in product design. (Video by ConnectEd, Youtube)

In Malaysia, Mechanical engineers are needed in many industries including Automotive (Proton, Toyota, Perodua, Honda, Nissan – has large factories in Malaysia) , aerospace, Biotechnology and Nanotechnology . In fact in almost all factories, including Chemical  and Electronic Factories- the Mechanical Engineer is a needed profession.

Oil and Gas Industry – Mechanical Engineers are needed in all areas of this industry. Almost every component dealing with oil and gas extraction has a mechanical element to it. (Except at this moment of writing (Jan 2016) – the Oil and Gas industry is pretty much in a low, and firing is happening more than hiring. The salaries in this area is the highest, though.)

In the Construction industry – Mechanical Engineers are needed in the Mechanical and Electrical division (aka M&E) division. Here mechanical Engineers will take up the role of designing and implementing aircond layout and calculation for buildings, plumbing, Heat transfer, Fire fighting systems (example -water sprinklers layout) and anything that does not deal with the structure of the building. (At most times, you wouldn’t see these in buildings, as they are always hidden, to keep the outward look of the building)

computer science vs computer engineering

Engineering Series : Computer Engineering vs Computer Science

In this series of Engineering Professions, today I would like to highlight profession of a Computer Engineer. A lot of people get confused between Computer Science and Computer Engineering. Computer Science deals with more the ‘soft’ aspect or rather the software side, which covers areas like Programming, Operating Systems, and networking. It covers programming languages like Java and C++.

Computer Engineering focusses more on the hardware side of things, like microprocessors. How hardware communicates with the software, etc.

Another good video is below, as it covers a more detail difference between Computer Science and Computer Engineering.

In Malaysia, Computer Engineers are needed in the areas of  Aerospace, Electronic Factories, Product Design and Equipment design (R&D divisions in companies). Thye could be also involved in software related companies (a lot of them centred in Cyberjaya), because of their background in software too.

Mechatronics Engineer

Engineering Series : Mechatronic Engineering

In this series of Engineering Professions, today I would like to highlight profession of a Mechatronics Engineer. It consists of multiple areas – Mechanical, Electronics, Electrical and Programming. People who love to tinker and build things would love this profession, as you get to be experts in multi areas and get to be involved in almost all stages of a product design.

Another good video is below, as it covers a wider aspect of what a mechatronic Engineer would do.

In Malaysia, Mechatronics Engineers are needed in the areas of  Aerospace, Electronic Factories, Product Design and Equipment design (R&D divisions in companies). In fact, most factories would have a need for this field of Engineering.

Electronics Engineering

Engineering Series : Electronic Engineering

In this series of Engineering Professions, today I would like to highlight profession of an Electrical Engineer.

First off, let us distinguish between electrical and electronics engineering. It gets very confusing to tell one from the other for a high school graduate. Electronics engineering is in fact a subfield or a child of the wider electrical engineering discipline.

Electrical engineering basically deals with the generation, transmission and storage of electricity while the electronics engineering on the other hand deals with circuits and minute electrical components such as transistors, diodes, microchips etc. While electrical engineering is basically concerned with providing power to run electrical appliances, electronics engineering programs the operation and effective working of these electrical equipment and appliances.

So that brings us to the question as to how to determine if electronics engineering harmonizes and resonates well with your interests? If you are regarded by your family members and peers as being the “go to” person when it comes to repairing faulty and inoperative electrical equipment and  have always had a fascination with the working and operation of computers and other electrical equipment, then you should seriously look into adopting electronics engineering as your career.

Electrical engineering has several sub-disciplines and you can either specialize and focus on a single sub-discipline or make a combination out of these sub disciplines if more than one of these tickles your fancy. Some of these sub-disciplines are Power engineering, Control engineering, Electronics, Micro electronics, Signal processing and Computer engineering.

As an electronics engineer, you’ll have a diverse range of options of industries to select from including Aerospace, broadcast, control and instrumentation and networking industry just to name a few.

In Malaysia, Electronic Engineers are quite heavily in demand in electronic companies such as Intel, HP, Motorala (Freescale), Western Digital etc, especially where they have an R&D Division in Malaysia.  Some Malaysian companies hiring would companies like Silterra  which is into wafer fabrication. Most factories and Electrical equipment suppliers would need electronic engineers too.

what is engineering

So.. what is Engineering?

Frequently, I have been approached by parents and students asking me what exactly is Engineering all about.. Sometimes they have some notions of what it is about, but not really concretely. Here is a nice video, that depicts what Engineering is, in a fun & easy to understand manner.

This video is targeted to pique the interest of high school students to the Engineering profession, but should entertain anyone interested in engineering. It highlights the importance of Maths and Science and touches on Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, Mining Engineering, and Software Engineering.

It explains engineering from as small as a mobile phone, to the Burj Khalifa.
