Electrical and Electronic Engineering shows you how a touch screen responds to your fingers, how your GPS knows exactly where you are and how electricity arrives at your doorstep with a flick of a switch from a power plant hundreds of kilometers away. Electrical and Electronic devices are everywhere, rapidly changing the way we live our lives. It is the leading sector in Malaysia’s industry. The programme will prepare you to be a competent engineer well equipped to meet the challenges of a very fast moving industry. Emphasis of the programme is on sustainable design, development and commercialisation of a wide range of electrical & electronic products and services. This includes consumer electronics, intelligent control systems, electrical energy, power systems and electrical machines.
Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Electrical and Electronics (4 Years)
Graduates will find career opportunities in a wide range of sectors, including aerospace, communications, instrumentation & control, IT & computing, consumer & industrial electronics/microelectronics, electrical & power generation machinery & equipment, manufacturing, transport networks, power generation, transmission & distribution, public utilities, building services, scientific, medical and educational institutions, amongst others.
Job scopes may include developing solutions to problems using new or existing technologies, product design, research & development, test & verification, inspection and maintenance, marketing, sales & service, management/supervision of engineering projects & operations, systems installation & testing, ensuring projects meet electrical safety regulations and consultancy, amongst others.
