The Diploma in Electrical & Electronics Engineering course at UCSI University is designed to provide fundamental theoretical knowledge and practical skills to individuals who are eager to join the industry at an earlier stage. The programme equips students with the relevant academic and “hands-on” experience to enable them to adapt quickly to their jobs after graduation, and provides flexibility, motivation and the essential knowledge and skills as a solid foundation for further studies. Upon successful completion of this programme, graduates may opt to pursue the prestigious degree programme at the faculty.
In a nutshell, this programme incorporates design projects – that aim to improve skills in design, problem-solving and report-writing – and furnishes students with the necessary skills, knowledge and expertise for challenges in various electrical and electronic industries.
The students are also required to undergo a minimum of three months’ industrial training under UCSI University’s Co-operative Placement scheme to learn and familiarize themselves with a real-life working environment.
The duration of the programme is approximately 2 years and 4 months.
In each year there are two long-semesters consisting of 14 weeks of instruction
with 2 weeks of examinations, and one short-semester consisting of 7 weeks of
instruction with 1 week of examinations. The long-semesters start in January and
May, while the short-semester starts in September.
In the months of November & December students undergo industrial training under
the Co-Operative Placement Scheme to learn and to familiarize themselves with
real life working environment. In addition, students also undertake a design
project near the end of their studies, which aids in developing the students’
skills in design, problem solving and report writing.
The number of contact hours per course per week depends on the credit and
teaching methodology of each course. Each credit is approximately equivalent to
1 hour of class, or 2 hours of labs per week.
The teaching and learning strategies
and assessment are designed depending on
and according to the nature of course or
topic being taught or investigated. The
school of Engineering implements different
methods and styles of teaching and learning
and assessment to ensure the successful
achievement of the learning outcomes of
its programmes, that includes:
- Ordinary classroom lectures
- Group tutorials
- Laboratory works
- Seminars and eforums
- Directed and self learning
- Invited guest lectures
- Industrial visits
This degree programme provides excellent preparation for
a career in electronics and integrated circuit design,
communications and signal processing, electrical and power
systems, software and systems engineering, management
consultancy, and almost any other profession that requires
good analytical and professional skills.
