The engineering industry stands as one of the pillars of human progress, shaping the world we live in through infrastructure, technology, and innovation. Central to this industry’s evolution is the critical role of research.
SEGi University’s Faculty of Engineering, Built Environment & Information Technology (FoEBEIT) stands as a beacon of academic excellence and innovation in the field of engineering. Committed to nurturing the engineers and problem solvers of tomorrow, this faculty is dedicated to fostering learning, research, and technological advancement.
Dr Nur Amirah Mohd Zahri, an exemplary member of FoEBEIT, recently achieved a remarkable milestone by securing the prestigious Selangor State Research Grant (GPNS) from Kolej Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Selangor (KUIS).
The chemical engineering lecturer’s outstanding accomplishment is celebrated with a grant of RM98,200 for her project, ‘Performance of Brazed 3D Printed Nanostructured Copper Open Cell Foam Heat Exchanger,’ in collaboration with esteemed researchers: Dr Mohd Faizan Jamaluddin (SEGi University), Dr Maisarah Lutfi (MAHSA University), Dr Tuan Zaharinie Tuan Zahari (University Malaya, UM), and Dr Nashrah Hani Jamadon (University Kebangsaan Malaysia, UKM).
With the grant secured, the research team is poised to push the boundaries of thermal management by exploring the diverse applications of open-cell copper foam in heat exchangers. Their project aims to enhance heat transfer efficiency and durability by investigating innovative methods and materials for 3D printing open-cell copper foam.
This research initiative breaks through disciplinary confines as experts from diverse scientific fields come together to pioneer creative solutions for sustainable and energy-efficient heat exchangers. The interdisciplinary collaboration promises to unearth groundbreaking advancements that will not only revolutionise heat exchanger technology but also contribute to the broader mission of sustainability and environmental stewardship.
As this research unfolds, the global scientific community eagerly anticipates the profound insights and innovations that will emerge. These breakthroughs will undoubtedly propel our understanding of thermal management, emphasising its pivotal role in building a more sustainable and eco-conscious future.
In the ever-evolving realm of academia, the pursuit of knowledge and innovation is a dynamic odyssey. Here at SEGi, we recognise that learning and innovation are not isolated endeavours but rather partners in progress. They work in tandem to empower our academics to continually refine their skills, challenge established norms, and push the boundaries of their capabilities.
SEGi University extends its heartiest congratulations once again to Dr. Nur Amirah. She exemplifies SEGi’s unwavering commitment to providing excellent education for eager minds and natural talents, guided by experienced and accomplished lecturers who set us apart as a leading higher learning institution in the country. We are proud to have individuals like Dr. Nur Amirah as part of our academic community, driving innovation and academic excellence to new heights.
