generating, distributing, storage and use of electrical energy for the benefit of mankind. It is the broadest and most dynamic of all engineering covering everything from micron-scale transistors to macro-scale network systems.

Think about how many items in your daily life we use power such as batteries, petrol motors or even solar panels.

Electrical and Electronic engineers are involved in the analysis of existing systems whether electrical, electronic or computer systems and they are often involved in creating and designing new products and systems for manufacturing industries.

What is Electronic Engineering?

In general, electronics engineers focus on the electronic circuits which are at the heart of computer science, while electrical engineers are concerned with the large-scale transfer of electrical currents as a power source.

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.

On the other hand, Electrical Engineering is a field of engineering that generally studies the designing, installation, manufacturing, maintenance and testing of electrical and electronic equipment.

But there is more to Electrical engineering than just that. Many advances in biomedicine were pioneered by electrical engineers, many software houses such as Microsoft employ electrical engineers and so do airplane manufacturers such as Boeing and Airbus.

Most astronomical observatories employ Electrical engineers to design their telescopes, other optical instruments and do advanced signal processing.

Areas of Electrical and Electronic Engineering include:

  • Electronics
  • Software
  • Hardware
  • Signal Processing
  • Communications

Study Electrical & Electronic Engineering degree course at the best universities in Malaysia

E&E is a very important part of our everyday life. The study of Electrical & Electronic Engineering can involve large amounts of power such as power and control engineering, large devices like power stations and electric vehicles or small amounts of power like computers, communications and information engineering and small devices including MP3 players, iPads and cell phones.

Students can consider studying Electrical & Electronic Engineering at one of the pioneer universities, UCSI University, or at Asia Pacific University, the best university for computing programmes. Software Engineering is closely related to Electrical & Electronic Engineering. Other universities that can be considered are KDU University College and Nilai University.

The Engineering Degrees of these universities are accredited by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) which is a signatory to the Washington Accord. This accreditation ensures that Engineering Graduates will have the following benefits in countries who are signatories of the Washington Accord:

  • Opportunities to register as a Graduate Engineer with Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) or the relevant professional bodies in other countries who are signatories under the Washington Accord.
  • Pathways to becoming a Professional or Chartered Engineer.
  • Assurance that graduates are considered as having met international academic standards for engineering practice.

BEng. (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering Degree at UCSI University

UCSI University is famous for its engineering courses and has offered the Electrical & Electronic Engineering course since

1992. 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.

The teaching and learning strategies and assessment are designed depending on and according to the nature of subject 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
