List of Top Ten Engineering Universities in Malaysia

I met EduSpiral and he helped me to filter all the information from the universities and choose the best university that fit me.

Malaysian students have the misconception that it doesn’t matter where one studies as the degree is the same and so they should be able to get a job regardless. Imagine that the university is a coach for badminton. If you pay a little money for a coach then you won’t be getting a coach with a lot of knowledge, skills, experience and proven track record. Therefore, you should not be expecting to win a lot of competitions.

A top university in engineering would have the experience in running the course, state-of-the-art facilities, qualified & experienced lecturers, solid internship programme, top ranked, and a proven track record in producing award-winning graduates. Other factors that students need to take into consideration when choosing the right engineering university are accreditation by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).

There are a wide variety of specialisations, and the more popular engineering fields in Malaysia are listed below for you to browse through. Each university would have their specialty in the various fields. A university may not be good at all engineering courses.

For example, best for electrical & electronic engineering would be Multimedia University (MMU), mechatronic engineering for Asia Pacific University (APU), while Heriot-Watt University Malaysia is ranked top in the world for Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Electrical & Electronic Engineering.

Therefore choose the university that has the expertise in the particular field.

Entry Requirements into Engineering Courses in Malaysia

I was confused about what to study & didn’t want to do what my dad was working as because he was so busy. My mum asked EduSpiral to advise me. He showed my that I am different from my dad & helped me to make the right choice.

Students after SPM or O-Levels with at least 3 credits including Maths & Science or pure science subject may enter an engineering diploma for 2.5 years before continuing on to Year 2 of the engineering degree. An engineering diploma is more specific to the course hence the student must be sure that he or she intends to pursue that course and not change. For example, a diploma in mechanical engineering may not enter into the civil engineering degree.

5 credits in SPM or O-Levels will allow the student to enter the Foundation in Science or Foundation in Engineering for 1 year. Upon completion of the Foundation, students may continue into any of the engineering fields. The Foundation would be ideal for students who are not sure of which engineering field that they would like to pursue.

Students who have completed the UEC, A-Levels, STPM, Foundation, South Australian Matriculation (SAM), AUSMAT, CIMP, or other Pre-University programme in Malaysia may enter into Year 1 of the engineering degree programme at a top private university in Malaysia as long as they meet the entry requirements of the particular university. Please note that the engineering entry requirements would vary from university to university and students should prepare themselves well after SPM or O-Levels to take the right subjects in the Pre-University programme in order not to be disappointed.
