Be an en­vi­ron­men­tal en­gi­neer

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - COURSE FOCUS -

CRAFT a suc­cess­ful ca­reer based on a pas­sion for the en­vi­ron­ment by pur­su­ing a de­gree in en­vi­ron­men­tal tech­nol­ogy and qual­ify as an en­vi­ron­men­tal en­gi­neer.

En­vi­ron­men­tal en­gi­neers are in­volved in wa­ter and air pol­lu­tion con­trol, re­cy­cling, waste dis­posal and pub­lic health is­sues.

They also con­duct haz­ardous waste man­age­ment stud­ies, ad­vise on waste treat­ment, and de­velop reg­u­la­tions for en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion.

En­vi­ron­men­tal en­gi­neers are largely in­volved in the de­vel­op­ment, plan­ning and im­ple­men­ta­tion of al­ter­na­tive en­ergy as well as life- cy­cle anal­y­sis.

Be­ing an en­vi­ron­men­tal en­gi­neer is unique be­cause they de­velop so­lu­tions to en­vi­ron­men­tal prob­lems us­ing the prin­ci­ples of bi­ol­ogy, physics and chem­istry.

Many en­vi­ron­men­tal en­gi­neers work as con­sul­tants, help­ing their clients com­ply with reg­u­la­tions or con­duct re­search on the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact of pro­posed con­struc­tion projects and an­a­lyse sci­en­tific data.

SEGi Univer­sity of­fers the Bach­e­lor of En­vi­ron­men­tal Tech­nol­ogy pro­gramme.

This three- year pro­gramme fo­cuses on a stu­dent- cen­tred en­vi­ron­ment, where stu­dents in­ter­act with ded­i­cated teach­ing staff from Malaysia and SEGi’s part­ner univer­si­ties world­wide.

SEGi has one of the most well- equipped and mod­ern en­gi­neer­ing lab­o­ra­to­ries in the Klang Val­ley.

Stu­dents have ac­cess to tech­ni­cally ad­vanced lab­o­ra­to­ries at the SEGi Univer­sity cam­pus in Kota Da­mansara, pro­vid­ing them with es­sen­tial tools for the de­vel­op­ment of en­gi­neer­ing skills.

Stu­dents gain ex­pe­ri­ence through a wide range of ap­proaches to learn­ing, from tra­di­tional lec­tures to di­rected study and on­line re­sources.

The mod­ules are de­liv­ered through for­mal lec­tures, tu­to­ri­als, case stud­ies, soft­ware learn­ing and di­rected read­ing.
