Personal statement

Prof. Chan Eng Seng is the Discipline Head of Chemical Engineering at Monash University Malaysia. His research interest revolves around the development of green processes for chemicals production, and drug (and food) delivery system.  He is also directing the Monash-Industry Palm Oil Research Platform (MIPO) which serves as a gateway to promote and coordinate multidisciplinary collaboration and academic-industry linkages in research programmes related to sustainable production and valorization of palm oil and its derivatives.

In education, he believes that ‘Practice-based Learning’ is the best way to learn engineering subjects. He is currently experimenting with the ways which can give students the opportunities to gain hands-on experience in designing and operating lab-scale chemical plants, as well as in operating a pilot plant.

Prof. Chan is a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow of the Institution of Chemical Engineers, and a Subject Editor for the Chemical Engineering Research and Design published by Elsevier.
