 Department of Chemical Process Engineering

As the Head of Department, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for showing interest in the Department of Chemical Process Engineering (CPE) of MJIIT. We are a relatively new Department, offering a Bachelor in Chemical Process Engineering, and Masters (MPhil) & PhD by research. Chemical Engineering is at the heart of our programmes, with a focus on its environmental applications for a truly sustainable future. CPE emphasizes the importance of multidisciplinary research and international collaboration in education by offering a number of i-Kohzas (research laboratories) to our members and students including: Air Resources (AIR), Ecological Engineering (EE), Centre for Lipids Engineering Applied Research (CLEAR), Chemical Energy Conversions and Applications (ChECA) and Metabolic Engineering and Molecular Biology (MEMO-Bio). Our international team of staff has strong links with Japanese Universities and other international institutions, offering opportunities for joint supervision and study abroad to our students. With that, I would like to welcome you to CPE and I look forward to receiving your inquiries.


Yours sincerely,
Dr. Mariam Firdhaus Binti Mad Nordin
Head of Department,
Chemical Process Engineering Department MJIIT,
About CPE
The Department of Chemical Process Engineering (CPE) has been set up to contribute in the area of Chemical Engineering. The Department of CPE  was initially  known as the Department of Environmental & Green Technology, established in September 2012 and changed to current department in 2017. The department offers the undergraduate programme, which awards the degree of Bachelor of Chemical Process Engineering.
Currently, the department has 17 academic staff members, which consist of local and Japanese, and 1 Assistant Vocational Training Officer. The academic staff members have different backgrounds such as in pure chemical engineering, bioprocess chemical engineering, bio engineering, chemistry, agriculture and geography.

The research area for each of our academicians are listed as below
