Overview

Electrical and electronic engineering play a significant role in modern society. From the electricity that powers our lives to the mobile phones that enable communication and provide entertainment, the technologies around us inspire wonder. Highly trained engineers are needed to specify and design such systems and devise electronic engineering solutions for future challenges – such as electric transportation, renewable energy generation, robot systems and medical diagnostics. A Bachelor of Engineering degree can provide access to exciting global opportunities.

MEng/BEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering progression

All students by default will be enrolled into the MEng programme at the point of entry. This is done for the applicant’s eligibility for PTPTN’s study loan, as well as for recognition by the Board of Engineers Malaysia. You may choose to opt out of the MEng programme, and proceed to a BEng programme during your Second Year.

Teaching and Assessment

Teaching methods range from lectures, tutorial classes and mentor sessions, to workshop and laboratory activities supported by group and individual projects. Assessment is by examination, coursework, presentations, group project andindividual project, the balance being appropriate to the different teaching methods used in the courses.

Accreditation

This programme is accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). Our degrees are offered as 3 year BEng (Bachelor of Engineering) or 4 year MEng (Master of Engineering) qualifications. Our MEng qualification is designed to satisfy the academic requirements set by the Engineering Council UK for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

Chartered Engineers enjoy excellent prospects, enhanced employability and high salaries. If you prefer to graduate with a BEng after 3 years of study your degree will provide partial fulfilment of the necessary academic requirements for Chartered Engineer Status.

For registration by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM), the MEng programme is required plus a minimum of 10 weeks industrial placement.
