31 March 2023 in Miri Recently, Curtin University Malaysia (Curtin Malaysia) students from the Faculty of Engineering and Science visited the site of the new LAKU Management Sdn. Bhd. headquarters to learn more about construction projects in practise outside of the classroom.

The 14 students from the departments of civil and construction engineering and environmental engineering, along with Associate Professor Ir. Wong Kwong Soon, Head of the Faculty’s Department of Civil and Construction Engineering, and professors Dr. Tony Hadibarata and Dr. Muhammad Noor Hazwan Bin Jusoh, watched construction take place and learned about the design, tools, and methods employed by the construction team.

The company’s corporate headquarters will be a cutting-edge L-shaped, eight-story structure with a prime location at Bukit Selatan overlooking the South China Sea. It is anticipated to house about 200 people.

Project delivery executive at LAKU Management Sdn. Bhd. Siaw Kok Seng remarked, “We were happy to welcome the students and give them insights into our construction operations.

The tour, according to Associate Professor Ir. Wong, was a great chance for the students to learn more about the environmental concerns and integrated structural designs related to construction projects. Additionally, they were able to relate concepts covered in class to a situation from real life.

He added that it illustrated Curtin University Malaysia’s dedication to giving its students real-world learning experiences that will help them further their study and get ready for future employment in engineering.

Yien Yu Tang, a student of environmental engineering, said she gained a lot from the site tour and praised LAKU Management’s personnel for sharing their knowledge of construction project management and letting the students see the work in progress.

Nicholas Ling Chung Long, a student of civil and construction engineering, expressed his gratitude for the chance and his admiration for the scope and intricacy of the project.

Providing students with the knowledge and abilities to apply scientific and technological principles to the design and construction of infrastructure such as roads, bridges, water supply and wastewater treatment systems, tunnels, power projects, offshore structures, and commercial and industrial buildings, Curtin Malaysia offers the Curtin Bachelor of Engineering in Civil and Construction Engineering.

The environmental engineering bachelor’s degree programme covers a variety of environmental engineering topics, such as home and industrial waste water treatment, solid waste management, and water treatment. Graduates can work in fields like oil spill cleanup, environmental impact assessment, noise monitoring and control, recycling systems, and environmental monitoring and management systems.

The Board of Engineers Malaysia and Engineers Australia (EA) both recognise both programmes as four-year honours programmes.
