Any advice you'd like to offer me? Perhaps a few guidelines for me to get started with the search for a Malaysian engineering firm? Thank you.
An excellent way to familiarise yourself with some corporate firm names would be to trawl through the Business/Property News sections of the newspapers. Get a copy of today's newspaper, and if you have a stash of yesterday's/last week's/etc copies, then even better.
Also, yes, there's all that talk about "roflmao top UK universities is an oxymoron -- the party is in the USA now", but the sad/happy truth [depends on how you play this to your advantage] is that as a general rule of thumb, employers in Malaysia are VERY UK-centric when it comes to hiring people. So don't worry; you'll be fine.
Just a little tidbit for you since you appear to be so keen, I know that Sime Darby sponsors chemical engineers, and they quite like UK universities.
