International Degree Pathways



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.

Programme Details

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.
