o Talks and Forums

Target Group: All Chemical Engineering students, including Post Graduate students

We plan to invite speakers from the chemical industries who have vast hands-on experiences to share their knowledge and tips with our students, especially those who are going to face the working environment such as the third and final year students. Other than that, we would also invite chemical engineers that have attained the highest membership status in IChemE, which is known as Fellow to the university to present talks to the students, with the collaboration from IChemE in Malaysia. For this talks and forum, we have plan it differently in such a way that the event will be on-going for the whole semester, which means that we will conduct at least one talk or forum every month. Suggested topics are as follow.

o Tutor-Tutee Program

Target Group: Foundation till 3rd Year 1st Semester students

Throughout the semester

IChemE-UTP-SC is planning to organize a Tutor-Tutee Program as a sub-event for Chemical Exposure Symposium to help students in their academics. In the program, we will target two more demanding and challenging subjects in each semester and therefore provide seniors as tutors to the juniors. We foresee that this Tutor-Tutee Program will benefit the students. As a matter of fact, the students will be having extra guidance and assistance in these tougher subjects. The plan is that we will organize classes at least once a week, 1-2 hours per session. In those sessions, the tutees may ask questions regarding each specific subject which they are not clear or need further clarification. The tutor-tutee program will also focus on the final exam papers towards the end of the semester to prepare the students for the final exam. If demanded, we will also be doing a recap or revision on the whole course for the students before the final exam or study week.
