Half-Day Training on Symmetry Software
       03 Mar 2023
TOT Symmetry
Bioprocess and Molecular Biology Research Unit (BPMERU) has organized Training the Trainer (TOT) on Symmetry Software workshop on 3rd March 2023 (Friday) in CHES Computer Lab (E5-L2). Symmetry is a processing simulation software, where IIUM has received 40 licenses, sponsored by Schlumberger (SLB), through the initiative of BPMERU. The software license sponsorship offers our faculty and students an excellent opportunity to expand their professional engineering skills by applying state-of-the-art process software tools.


The training was delivered by an expert user from industry, Dr Zulfan Adi Putra, Supply Chain Optimization Engineer of Exxonmobil. Dr Zulfan has vast experience as Process Engineer, with previous employments at PETRONAS, TMC Chemical, AkzoNobel, Trespa International and Wijaya Karya. The workshop was attended by lecturers and postgraduate students from Department of Chemical Engineering and Sustainability, Kulliyyah of Engineering, IIUM.

From the workshop, many academics found immense significance in the application of software for the simulation of unit operations by IDP (Integrated Design Project – equivalent to Capstone Project) students. The application of the software is not just limited to IDP but could be expanded to Final Year Project (FYP) and Postgraduate research projects. We are honored to SLB and Dr Zulfan Adi Putra for the software training.
