Ding Zhen Wei AMIMechE
My Associate Membership
Since graduating with a BEng in Mechanical Engineering, I continued my studies to earn a Doctorate in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Nottingham, majoring in heat transfer and nanofluids. In 2012, I took up a role in my sponsoring company, Xyratex, as a Mechanical Development Engineer where I designed, built and commissioned, and automated hard disk testers. In 2015, I joined Shell as a Graduate Mechanical Static Engineer, working in the Upstream, Projects and Technology space. It’s a very satisfying and challenging role, and takes me to many different parts of Malaysia.
I became an Associate Member because I want to further my career and achieve Chartered status. My Associate membership gives me access to the resources and networks I need to achieve my goals. IMechE Malaysia has been very active in promoting professional registration to major employers, like Shell. This means I’ve had great support from both the Institution and colleagues within my department, as I work towards becoming a Chartered Engineer.
