  1. Between Curtin, Heriot-Watt and UCSI, which is the best? Let’s say budget is not an issue, rather the path towards attaining the degree in terms of quality of teaching, facilities, campus environment, and i presume all three are accredited by Malaysia’s Lembaga Jurutera Board? Thank you so much for your time.
