Master of Electrical Engineering (MEKG)

Master of Electrical Engineering (Taught course) is developed to instil a strong engineering foundation, to produce graduates that are proficient in solving electrical engineering problems. This will ensure the graduates of electrical engineering are able to practice their knowledge in their future career. The intention of this proposed programme are to blend the fundamental elements of advanced electrical and mechatronics with industrial and manufacturing related studies, provide the opportunity for student to specialize in areas related with advanced industrial power, power electronics & drives and control engineering, professional training on research methods and helping student from variety of science and engineering background meet their career ambition with the special aims of “employability in mind”.

  • Programme Overview

    The Master programme by Taught Course (or coursework) is designed to extend the knowledge and skills gained from the first degree and to develop new professional skills of the graduates in the particular area of study. The programme involves lectures, seminars and project work. A minimum of 40 credit hours of taught subjects and a research report and a final Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of at least 3.0 are required for the award of the Master degree. The credit hour which comply with the Malaysia Qualification Agency (MQA), of study comprise a combination of compulsory subjects, electives and a Master’s Project. Assessments are made through take home assignments, tests and final semester examinations. Students’ progress and performance in the Master project is assessed through oral presentations and a written report.
