Sharing Chemical Engineer's Challenging, Exciting, Interesting and Stimulating Life...



My Intention....

When i first start writing in this site, my intention was to provide more information about the career as a chemical engineer and any career closely related to it. This is mainly because, i was also not sure what is chemical engineering....I did mention in my previous post something about how i have a very vague vision about the field of chemical engineering, but i decided to pursue a degree in this field because i like chemistry.

Therefore, i would like to give all information related to chemical engineering to future chemical engineering studets. I would also expose my experience as a practicing chemical engineer to those chemical engineering students, so that they will know more or less how and what does a chemical engineer do. What can they expect as a chemical engineer....and so on.... Maybe I'm not that old yet, and do not have that huge experiece in chemical engineering stuff, but i think i have tasted various fields of chemical engineering afer i completed my degree.

Well, after completed my chemical engineering degree from University of Bradford, I returned to my country, Malaysia. My original plan and my ambition is to become a lecturer. I began to work as a research assistant and continue my masters degree in chemical engineering specializing in Reaction Engineering - Catalysis Technology. So, i was there doing those research work for 2 years ++.
My son -Maybe he wants to be a chemical engineer too. Following his parent's...
Then, after my masters degree i joined a local oil and gas service company. With this company i did a lot of specialty chemical stuff associated with oil and gas. I travel a lot doing projects here and there, onshore and offshore. It was really exciting, interesting and challenging. I've been with that company for about 2.5 years. I have to leave the company because it want to move to KL. I can't move because all my family and parents are here and we just purchased a house in johor bahru.

I move on with my life and got a job in an oil refinery in Johor Bahru. However, i have to commute daily for about 98km in order to go and return from work. This is another chapter of my chemical engineering career. This one was a challenging and interesting one as well. So, at the point i'm posting this story, i've been working in the refinery for about 1 year and 3 months now. But the amount of knowledge and information that is kept in my drive O inside my CPU brain is so much....Luckily RAM is also high......512 MB.....
This photo was taken in the morning and i'm already sweating...
So, from my experiences that i gain all these years, i hope i can help few people who choose chemical engineering as a career some information and knowledge. I hope this can further and increase your comprehension on chemical engineering.

I'm also working on to create another page/site dedicated to the subject of heat exchanger, cooling tower, boiler, specialty chemical, instrumentaion + automation, oil and gas. However, i guess that will take some time to complete as i'm also working full time. I can only do this after work when i have the energy....

Very Helpful articles. good stuff.
We are facing lot of trouble with the performance of cooling tower during the summer season here in UAE.

Can u suggest any alterations to improve the cooling effect.
