Electrical Engineering is a field of engineering that generally studies the designing, installation, manufacturing, maintenance and testing of electrical and electronic equipment. On the other hand, Electronics Engineering focuses on solid state devices and integrated circuits that enable the creation of devices such as cellular phones, miniature computers, electronic controls for automotive and navigation systems in cars, home appliances, and a vast variety of other products for daily usage.
At UCSI University, the Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme covers a tremendous array of courses related to both fields, ranging from basic topics such as circuits, analogue and digital devices and systems, computing, machines, communications and digital networks to more specialised topics like filter design, control, instrumentation, power, signal processing, VLSI design, and microprocessors / microcontrollers, among others.
This well-established and broad-based engineering degree programme combines theoretical studies with practical applications and problem-solving skills in the realm of engineering. The course grooms students to be well-trained individuals and exposes them to hands-on sessions with software and hardware design tools, in line with industry needs.
To foster competitiveness among graduates, students are also required to undergo industrial training under UCSI University’s Co-Operative Placement Training Scheme at the end of the 2nd and 3rd academic years. This training allows students to learn and familiarise themselves with the real-life working environment. Apart from that, students also undertake research and development projects in their final year of study.
The duration of the programme is 4 years.
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 research and development project in their final year.
The number of contact hours per courses 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
- Subject to Faculty discretion after reviewing transcript and syllabus. Max credit transfer of 30% of the programme total credits
Note / Legend:
Discretion is given to the Head of School to deal with applicants who have results borderline to the Academic Requirements.
O-Level – 'A' to 'C'
UEC Credit – 'A1' to 'B6'
'A' Levels principal – 'A' to 'E'
For Local Students
English language competency requirements are as follows: Minimum grade of B+ in SPM English language; or minimum grade of C in SPM English language 1119/O-Level English/IGCSE; or minimum grade of A2 in UEC English language; or minimum Band 3 of MUET.
In the event that the English language requirements are not met, applicants will be required to take the Basic English and English Foundation for in-sessional academic enhancement concurrently with the programme.
For International Students
English language competency requirements are as follows: Minimum Band 3 of MUET; or minimum score of 5.0 in IELTS; or minimum score of 42 in TOEFL iBT; or minimum score of 47 in Pearson Test of English; or minimum score of 154 in Cambridge English Qualifications and Tests.
International applicants who do not meet the respective academic programme’s English Language Requirement will need to improve their proficiency by enrolling into the English for Tertiary Education programme (R/KJP/00920-00929) which helps them prepare for attaining a required band score. Placement into the various levels of the English for Tertiary Education programme depends on the English Language qualification students have at the point of admission and/or the outcome of the English Placement Test.
**The applicants who have met the respective academic programme’s English Language Requirement may be advised by Faculty to improve their proficiency by undertaking the additional English proficiency courses.
