Bachelor of Electrical Engineering with Honours (Part Time Mode)
The Bachelor of Electrical Engineering with Honours programme (BELG) - Part Time Mode is designed to produce electrical engineers who are able to work in various electrical engineering disciplines. Graduates are developed through a balanced mix of core and elective engineering courses with a combination of theoretical, practical and soft skill elements so that they become holistic engineers.
The Faculty of Electrical Technology and Engineering (FTKE) offers full time 4-year undergraduate programmes leading to the degree award of Bachelor of Electrical Engineering with Honours and Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering with Honours. The curriculum has been developed in-line with the University’s and Faculty’s missions and the Program Educational Objectives (PEO)s. The academic curriculum aims of producing competence graduates that satisfy the industry needs. In addition, the effectiveness and quality of the curriculum through the educational content, teaching and learning are constantly monitored with appropriate assessment methods.
The academic curriculum of the Bachelor Programmes consists of both engineering and non- engineering courses. The key elements of the curriculum include the laboratory work, industrial training, integrated design project and final year projects. In addition, engineering application, integrated exposure to professional engineering practice, including management and professional ethics are also part of the programme’s curriculum. In order to expose the students to engineering practice, technical talks by guest lecturers from industry, industry visits, and courses on professional ethics and conduct, are also included.
Programme Educational Objective (PEO)
Programme Educational Objective (PEO) are specific goals describing the expected achievement of graduates in their career and professional life after 3 to 5 years of graduation. Three main concepts for PEO for Engineering’s Bachelor Programme consist of Apply engineering knowledge and contribution to respected field, the achievement in technical career as well as lifelong learning.
The objectives of this programme are to produce graduates who:
- Practise electrical engineering knowledge creatively and innovatively in broad application.
- Attain a successful career, acquire leadership quality, able to work independently, act professionally and practise ethical conduct.
- Engage with life-long learning and adapt to constantly evolving technology and entrepreneurial skills in decision making.
Programme Outcome (PO)
Programme Outcome (PO) are statements describing what students are expected to know and be able to perform or attain by the time of graduation. These are related to the Knowledge (K), Skills (S), and Attitude (A) that students acquire throughout the programme.
Below is the list of Programme Outcomes for Mechatronics Engineering’s Bachelor Programme
- Engineering Knowledge - Apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation as specified in WK1 to WK4 respectively to the solution of complex engineering problems.
- Problem Analysis - Identify, formulate, conduct research literature and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences (WK1 to WK4).
- Design/Development of Solutions - Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations (WK5).
- Investigation - Conduct investigation of complex engineering problems using research-based knowledge (WK8) and research methods, including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
- Modern Tool Usage - Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations (WK6).
- The Engineer and Society - Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solutions to complex engineering problems (WK7).
- Environment and Sustainability - Understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of professional engineering work in the solutions of complex engineering problems in societal and environmental contexts (WK7).
- Ethics - Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice (WK7).
- Communication - Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
- Individual and Team Work - Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multidisciplinary settings.
- Life Long Learning - Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
- Project Management and Finance - Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and economic decision-making and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
Professional certification courses
The professional certification preparatory course is optional for all part time bachelor degree students registered with the University starting from 2017/2018 intake and onwards with additional fees. The students may choose any certification preparation course before the end of their study. The Faculty will offer Basic Hydraulic Technology Certification Course (BEKG 4710) and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) Level 1 & 2 (BEEE 3210)
OMRON Electronics is a leading electronics company from Japan that has been established for more than 20 years in Malaysia. In Malaysia, OMRON PLC technology is used by many companies in the manufacturing industry for process control and automation as well as the development of Industrial Revolution 4.0 technology. This course is designed to provide participants with the fundamental and hands on knowledge of Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) that used in the various field of automation industry. Participants would be exposed to theoretical and practical session about Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) from performing wiring diagram for input and output devices and develop a ladder diagram using its programming software for a specific industrial automation application task.
