Eyes on marine en­gi­neer­ing

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

UNIVER­SITI KL Malaysian In­sti­tute of Marine En­gi­neer­ing Tech­nol­ogy ( UniKL MIMET) was es­tab­lished since 2004.

Its per­ma­nent cam­pus is strate­gi­cally lo­cated in Lu­mut, Perak, rel­a­tively known as the home base of the Royal Malaysian Navy equipped with ports and wharfs and one of the cen­tres for mar­itime de­manded by lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional marine en­gi­neer­ing com­pa­nies.

UniKL MIMET of­fers Diploma and Bach­e­lor in En­gi­neer­ing Tech­nol­ogy pro­grammes such as Ship De­sign, Ship Con­struc­tion & Main­te­nance, Marine En­gi­neer­ing, Marine Elec­tri­cal & Elec­tron­ics, Mar­itime Op­er­a­tions and Naval Ar­chi­tec­ture & Ship­build­ing.

It aims to of­fer in­dus­try spe­cific cour­ses which will pro­duce highly skilled and knowl­edge­able man­power for the mar­itime in­dus­try. UniKL MIMET prides it­self in of­fer­ing Marine En­gi­neer­ing and other marine based pro­grammes since 2004.

To date, the Univer­sity has pro­duced 2,519 grad­u­ates with a spe­cial­i­sa­tion in Naval Ar­chi­tec­ture, Ship De­sign, Ship Con­struc­tion & Main­te­nance, Marine Elec­tri­cal & Elec­tron­ics, Marine En­gi­neer­ing and Mar­itime Op­er­a­tions.

Be­gin­ning Jan­uary 2008, UniKL MIMET of­fered the Diploma of En­gi­neer­ing Tech­nol­ogy in Marine En­gi­neer­ing pro­gramme, which is ac­cred­ited the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency ( MQA) and Marine Depart­ment of Malaysia as ful­fill­ing the stan­dards set by the In­ter­na­tional Mar­itime Or­gan­i­sa­tion ( IMO).

This means that grad­u­ates of this pro­gramme are recog­nised lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally in terms of their aca­demic achieve­ment and their prac­ti­cal skills.

Re­spond­ing to the need to of­fer Marine En­gi­neer­ing- based pro­gramme at a higher aca­demic level, UniKL MIMET has in­tro­duced a new pro­gramme – the Bach­e­lor of En­gi­neer­ing Tech­nol­ogy ( Hons) in Marine En­gi­neer­ing. This pro­gramme is ap­proved by the Min­istry of Education ( MOE) and the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency ( MQA).

The pro­gramme is on the last stage of get­ting full ap­proval from Marine Depart­ment of Malaysia.

The Bach­e­lor of En­gi­neer­ing Tech­nol­ogy ( Hons.) in Marine En­gi­neer­ing pro­gramme is the first of its kind in Malaysia and is de­vel­oped to pro­duce grad­u­ates with the re­quired know- how at a higher aca­demic level to ful­fil the coun­try’s de­mand for skilled work­ers and pro­fes­sion­als in the mar­itime sec­tor. This is in line with the rapid ex­pan­sion of the mar­itime and ship­ping sec­tor in Malaysia as well as in other parts of the world.

The pro­gramme‘ s ed­u­ca­tional ob­jec­tives are:

> To en­hance the es­tab­lish­ment of UniKL MIMET in pro­vid­ing marine re­lated train­ing pro­grammes as well as to strengthen the pres­ence of UniKL MIMET as a cer­ti­fied and ac­cred­ited marine en­gi­neer­ing train­ing cen­tre that com­plies with the re­quire­ments of Marine Depart­ment of Malaysia and In­ter­na­tional Mar­itime Or­gan­i­sa­tion ( IMO).

> To pro­duce com­pe­tent sea­far­ers in com­pli­ance with Stan­dard of Train­ing, Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and Watch­keep­ing ( STCW) 78/ 95 Con­ven­tion ( 2010 Manila Amend­ment) by way of of­fer­ing Bach­e­lor De­gree in Marine En­gi­neer­ing with Fourth Class of Com­pe­tency and the­ory up to Frst Class Cer­tifi­cate of Com­pe­tency ac­cord­ing to IMO Model Course 7.02 and 7.04.

Grad­u­ates from the Bach­e­lor of En­gi­neer­ing Tech­nol­ogy ( Hons) in Marine En­gi­neer­ing will have the op­por­tu­nity to pur­sue their ca­reer in var­i­ous fields such as:

1. Marine En­gi­neer ( e. g. chief en­gi­neers, se­cond, third and fourth class en­gi­neers). 2. Marine Sur­veyor 3. Marine Su­per­in­ten­dent 4. Owner Rep­re­sen­ta­tive 5. Ship­yard Per­son­nel 6. Main­te­nance En­gi­neer 7. Marine Spe­cial­ist 8. Off­shore En­gi­neer
