Gas Engineering is a field of profession that involved activities such as gas processing, pipeline transmission & distribution and gas utilization. Skills and expertise in the process design, installation, system operation, project supervision, research and management are important to ensure those activities are performed in a safe and efficient manner for the benefit of mankind. With the 84.9 trillion cubic feet (2004) gas reserves,  Malaysia is in need of skill manpowers in gas engineering area in order to utilize this energy that is estimated to last for about 6o years. Malaysia is 16th in the list of world gas reserves. In 1984, the first Gas Processing Plant in Peninsular Malaysia (Terengganu) was launched. This mark the beginning of gas era in Malaysia that was followed by the implementation of peninsular gas utilization projects.

Gas engineer has been in high demand to meet the increasing manpower requirement to support the numerous gas projects. These are in the area of gas liquefaction,  gas processing, petrochemical processing and the delivery of gas to the power plant, industrial user, commercial center, domestic consumer throughout peninsular Malaysia. A combination of chemical process and gas engineering knowledge make it a uniquely distinct engineering discipline as the graduate can work as a chemical and process engineer as well as gas engineer for transportation and gas utilization.
Knowledge in chemical engineering will enable the graduates to also work  in petrochemical industries, oleo chemical industries, manufacturing industries, governmental and private sectors. Our graduates can apply to company such as PETRONAS, SHELL, EXXONMOBIL, Energy Commission of Malaysia, Gas Malaysia Sdn Bhd,  SIRIM, DOSH, NIOSH, Consultant company and service industry. Chemical (gas) graduates can also involve in teaching and R&D  at higher learning institutions and research centers.

The gas era and the country’s 2020 vision have spawned the development of the gas industry, such as gas processing, transmission, distribution and utilization, and as well as petrochemical industry. These industries need manpower equipped with technical expertise in both chemical and gas engineering. Students who graduate as a chemical-gas engineer have a wide base of career choices from either in pure chemical engineering to gas engineering background. They can also easily adapt themselves in public and as well as private sectors. These include government agency, research and development centre, higher learning institution and many others.

Matriculation or STPM with minimum of B- in Mathematics/ Additional Mathematics/ Further Additional Mathematics, Chemistry/ Engineering Chemistry and Physics/ Engineering Physics/ Biology with CPA 3.00 and not  physically handicapped which makes him/her unable to conduct experimental/ practical work.
