How to be a Professional Engineer (PE) with IR Status?

I have been asked several times the steps and how to be a professional engineer having an IR status in Malaysia. Due to that, I thought it is better for me to write a special guide explaining step by step what should be done. I’ll try to make this guide as compact and short possible (but still resourceful) so that it won’t waste any of your time. 1. Register with BEM If you just graduate from university in Malaysia or…

5 Jobs, 3 Years, 1 Company  – We Are Yammer – Medium

My name is Scott Balentine, and I’m a Software Development Engineer at Yammer. But I wasn’t always an engineer. In fact, just three short years ago, I had never written or even read a single line of code. My journey from knowing nothing about programming to being a productive part of the engineering team is something that I feel couldn’t have been accomplished without the unique culture of mentorship at Yammer. My story begins fresh out of college. I was…

The Importance of Being An Expert in Something

Let me ask you a question: “What is the one thing you are expert in?” Can you give me a fast straight forward answer without taking up to 1 minute to think? If you can answer this question in just a matter of seconds, then you confidently know what you are good at. That’s good. It doesn’t matter if the thing you are expert in is associated with academic or not. It can be sport, science, social science, arts, IT…

Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET)

If you fancy working at offshore oil rigs, chances of experiencing a challenging and financially rewarding job is there. It’s definitely going to be a fun, tough, exciting job. I’ve experience it before and I know how it feels like. However, before you can work there, you need to have an offshore passport and one of the important requirement to obtain the offshore passport is to undergo Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET). In United States, HUET is known as Helicopter…

Plate and Frame Heat Exchanger Cleaning Video

When a heat exchanger is continuously used, it will gradually lose the ability to transfer heat as the fouling and scaling develops on the surface of the heating material. When this occur, any heat exchanger will become inefficient and needs cleaning. When a heat exchanger is clean, it needs to be stopped. Hence, that’s why there is a need to have a back up heat exchanger in a particular section of the plant. Otherwise, the plant will either run with…

Chemical Engineering in the 21st Century

Are you a chemical engineer? or perhaps a chemical engineering student? Chemical Engineering is a universal engineering discipline compared to electrical, mechanical, civil, mechatronic, robotic engineering. When I studied my first degree 18 years ago, I do not know that much about chemical engineering related work and discipline. Most of my friends also were not sure what this field is all about. Interestingly, that time, and probably still this time, students decided to choose chemical engineering because they love chemistry.…

Does A Chemical Engineering Student Wants to Be A Chemical Engineer?

Presently, I am actively teaching and supervising students. It is important to know our students. What I mean is not to know them very close but enough in order for us to know the best way to treat them based on who they are, their background, based on what they want to be and several other factors. One of the most frequent question I asked my student are what do you want to be after you graduated as a chemical…

Chemical Engineering Master and/or Ph.D student(s)

I am going to continue doing research mainly because I am very interested to conduct research, I love publishing my work, I like presenting my work in conferences as well as I want to contribute to the advancement of technology and knowledge. Hence, in order to continue the research culture, I am currently looking for master and/or PhD student to work on a…

Chemical Engineering World: Early February Random Musing

New Academic Semester Next week the new semester will start, which means busy time again. Undergraduate students will return and a new semester will proceed. This semester I will be teaching Process Control and Instrumentation (SKK3144) which carries 4 credits and Process Control Laboratory (SKK 3171) which carries 1 credit. Both subjects are very interesting, challenging and exciting. This time, the Process Control and Instrumentation subject will be conducted via the Problem Based Learning (PBL) approach. The 3rd year students…

Basics of Hydraulic System in Engineering

It is indeed very tough to see any industry without a slight touch of hydraulic system. Hydraulic system is crucial for various industries as well as our daily life routine, but its’ importance are occasionally unrealized by many. One of the most common hydraulic system application is in our vehicle breaking system. I’ll explain further about the breaking system later in this article. Anyway, from my previous experiences, I worked with several types of equipments and machineries employing hydraulic system.…
