Education Pathway to Becoming at Top Mechanical Engineer in Malaysia

I loved motorsports and EduSpiral gave me great advise to help guide me to achieve my dream.
Justin Moo, Mechanical Engineering graduate from Taylor’s University

Students after SPM or O-Levels can enter into a Foundation in Science or Foundation in Engineering at the best private universities in Malaysia for 1 year before continuing on to the 4-year BEM Accredited Mechanical Engineering degree.

Alternatively, students may enter the Diploma in Mechanical Engineering with at least 3 credits in SPM or O-Levels including Maths & Science. Upon completion of the Diploma in Mechanical Engineering, students may enter into Year 2 of the Mechanical Engineering degree.

Pre-University graduates in Malaysia from programmes such as UEC, STPM, A-Levels, SAM, CPU, AUSMAT and others may enter directly into the BEM Accredited Mechanical Engineering degree providing they meet the minimum entry requirements.

 

EduSpiral took these students separately to tour the campus and provided course counseling to help them make the right choice. Kian Yong (Mechanical Engineering), Yammie (Business), & Kenneth Pang (Architecture) at UCSI University’s Orientation

Choosing the right university to study mechanical engineering in Malaysia can be confusing. Students after SPM, UEC, STPM, O-Levels, A-Levels or Pre-U can have a confusing time trying to decide which is the best university for their mechanical engineering studies in Malaysia. It is important to do some research and ask experienced and knowledgeable counselors for advise in choosing the best one that fits you.

The Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) registers graduates and professional engineers under the Registration of Engineers Act 1967 (Revised 2002). The requirement for registration as a graduate engineer is a degree in engineering recognised by the Board.

A professional engineer (Ir or PEng) is a person who is licensed to practice to practice engineering in Malaysia after meeting all requirements of
the  (e.g. pass PI Examination). Only an Ir/P.Eng. can sign and seal engineering documents that are engineering documents that are submitted to a public authority or for public and private clients.

Mechanical Engineering is a Top Job in Demand in Malaysia

EduSpiral talked to my mother and took us to meet up with the Head Lecturer to explain the course in detail to us. After the campus tour, we decided to join the college.
Chang Jing, Diploma in Mechanical Engineering

30% of the CEOs in Malaysia’s 50 largest companies posses a basic engineering degree. Engineers and technical minded individuals tend to have a certain advantage because they are very structured and solutions-based.

Malaysia needs at least 200,000 engineers by 2020 in order to attain the status of a developed nation. Currently, there are 70,000 registered professional engineers in Malaysia with the Institute of Engineers Malaysia (IEM). In line with the government’s Economic Transformation Plan (ETP), DreamEdge Sdn Bhd (DESB) hopes to help Malaysia become a global engineering hub by 2015.

Germany, Japan and other countries in Europe also required engineering services from Malaysia as the cost was low and good quality. According to DESB, Malaysia has been producing mechanical engineers employed in factories which should be taken over by graduates in the field of manufacturing engineering.

To ensure the development of the engineering industry, the company is working closely with the Northern Corridor Implementation Authority (NCIA), the Ministry of International Trade and Industry, the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade), the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) as well as the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU).

What is Mechanical Engineering?

After starting class at college, I was still confused if the course suited me. I took a bus from Seremban to meet up with EduSpiral for counseling. I have a clearer picture of what to do now.
Kuang Joe, Diploma in Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is an extremely diverse field covering the design, development, construction, operation and maintenance of all types of motor vehicles, aircraft and ships as well as propulsion and power plants and mechanical and robotic components used in many industries. Mechanical Engineering is one of the most popular engineering fields, also overlapping with other areas, such as Aerospace, Manufacturing and Electrical Engineering among others.

Mechanical Engineers design, build, test and maintain all manner of machines in all manner of places. It’s probably the most diverse and most flexible of all engineering disciplines, covering virtually all areas of development and production like analysis, design, development, manufacturing, operation and maintenance.

Mechanical Engineering is all about turning energy into power and motion through the design of clever mechanical systems. Because it’s such a broad field, you could expect to find Mechanical Engineers almost anywhere that uses machinery. Mechanical Engineering very specifically uses mechanical power to operate machines and tools. Mechanical Engineers then use these machines and tools to develop things – anything really, from water bottles to cars to computers.

After explaining in detail, EduSpiral took me & my parents to tour the campus & helped with the scholarship application.
Darren Fong, Engineering at Asia Pacific University

Apply all this to developing motor vehicles, building aircraft and ships, designing methods of propulsion and power plants or applying the mechanical and robotic components used in industries everywhere. And there you have career options in Malaysia and globally that stretch as far as you can imagine.

Mechanical Engineering continues to evolve as technology improves and things become smaller – the optimisation, design and construction of machines to make things never stops. Mechanical Engineers research, design, build, test, maintain and improve all manner of things, from power plants, renewable energy systems and electrical generators, to robots computer systems and aircraft engines and cars. If it is a machine, it was an engineer that made it.

In recent times, Mechanical Engineers have had to adapt to the changing needs of the technology era. Now

they design bionic limbs and prosthetic joints, develop high performance composite materials, work on more flexible manufacturing processes and much more. As technology demands it, a Mechanical Engineer responds accordingly with an ingenious invention or more efficient process.

Any Mechanical Engineer you meet will be a master of energy, motion, forces, solids, liquids and gases. Depending on your area of interest, you can apply these skills to any number of sub-disciplines of Mechanical Engineering.

Mechanical Engineers work in more fields than you can imagine. If it’s a machine, you can be sure that a mechanical engineer has had something to do with designing it, constructing a prototype, testing it, perfecting it and rolling it out on the production line. Some mechanical engineers may even be involved in marketing or selling it! How about power generation, or noise and vibration, flow analysis and measurement, land transport vehicles, computational engineering, design & simulation or even composite structures.

Careers for Malaysian Mechanical Engineering Graduates

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.

One of the advantages of selecting mechanical engineering as your specialty is that it is a fairly general and all-purpose engineering degree. That means you will be able to gain employment at many different companies across all continents.

There is a high demand for qualified engineers in Malaysia therefore jobs are easy to come by and salaries are high. Top Private universities in Malaysia offer an affordable option for students who cannot get into public universities or go overseas to study.

The quality of the programmes of some universities are of high standards and accredited by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) which provides recognition for graduates who want to work overseas.

Traits that make a good mechanical engineer If you are an innovator and you enjoy solving complex problems, then you will make a good mechanical engineer. A mechanical engineer needs to be good at applying mathematics and scientific principles to turn ideas into reality. Teamwork and leadership is also needed because mechanical engineers usually work in teams.

Engineers use computer technology and mathematical models to work out the solution to structural, or mechanical problems. In an engineering degree course in Malaysia, students will spend time in the laboratory or use computers to understand how to solve problems. You will also have the opportunity to apply your theory to real-life projects through case-studies and internships.

Engineering degrees are extremely varied and can focus on particular parts of the engineering industry or just a general overview of the technical processes. Whichever degree you choose to study, you will graduate with a host of transferable skills that will enable you to work in a variety of industries.

It is recommended for students to choose an engineering degree programme that is general rather than specific so that their job prospects are wider. If you choose a course such as aerospace engineering, your job scope is only limited to the aerospace industry. A degree in mechanical engineering or mechatronic engineering would provide you the opportunity to work in the aerospace industry as well as other industries.

Engineering students will gain skills such as project management, analysis and your practical experience

act as great foundations for careers in other industries. It isn’t uncommon to find top quality engineers in banking, politics and financial sectors. Many graduates do not work in the field that they graduate in. This is normal.

Before starting your career in engineering it is important to know which engineering field you would like to specialise in because of the variety of sectors within the engineering industry. If you are certain of what type of engineer you wish to become, you should study a degree which focuses specifically on that field of study.

If you are not sure, that is still alright as students after SPM or O-Levels can take the Foundation course at a reputable private university for one year. During that one year, you should talk to the seniors and lecturers to figure out which engineering field best fits you.

To enter into the Foundation in Engineering or Foundation in Science, students after SPM or O-Levels will need at least 5 credits including Maths and Physics (Chemistry for Chemical Engineering) and pass in BM and Sejarah. With 3 credits in SPM including Maths and a Science subject, students can join the Diploma in Engineering course before entering into Year 2 of the Degree course.

There are a wide variety of specialisations, and the more popular engineering fields in Malaysia are listed below for you to browse through.

Students should choose your engineering field by passion. Ask yourself, “What gets me excited? Projections may show a future demand in certain engineering fields, but do you want to work very hard for the next four years in order to get a job in an area you don’t really like?

Students should identify your true interests. Do you like tinkering with devices? Mechanical engineering or mechatronic engineering are good choices for you. Are you passionate about solving the energy crisis? Then you might consider petroleum engineering, chemical engineering, or electrical engineering. And if you spend all your spare time writing code, computer science is an appropriate career path.

Choosing to study in an engineering field that you have passion in, will make you more likely to succeed as you would be willing to put in the hard work needed to be an expert in your field.

Don’t worry I know it is very difficult for you to give the answer so I am here to help you to know your interest in a particular engineering field of study. It’s very simple just give the answer of some question and then decide yourself that which branch do you like most or which branch suited to you according to your interest. We will discuss so that you can choose the best engineering field to study according to your interest.

Demand for qualified engineers in Malaysia is increasing. In order to succeed in the engineering field, students must choose a top private university in Malaysia that has the experience and facilities to equip them.

In addition, soft skills such as an English speaking environment, leadership skills, communication skills and internship programs will help the graduate stand out and be very successful. Research has shown that graduates with a good command of English has a 25% higher salary than those who don’t.

Students after SPM or O-Levels who are sure of choosing engineering for their degree studies may go for the Foundation in Engineering. If you are still not sure whether you want engineering or other science courses, you may choose the Foundation in Science programme at premier private universities in Malaysia. Students after the external Pre-University Programme such as A-Levels, UEC, STPM, SAM, CPU, MUFY or AUSMAT may enter directly into the Engineering Degree programme with relevant results.

EduSpiral Consultant Services provides free advise to students after SPM, O-Levels, STPM, A-Levels,

UEC, and Pre-University to guide them in choosing the right course and university to study so that they can have a successful career. The aim for EduSpiral Consultant Services in sharing this article is to help students in selecting their course of study and career paths based on areas in demand.

Engineers use computer technology and mathematical models to work out the solution to structural, or mechanical problems. In an engineering degree course in Malaysia, students will spend time in the laboratory or use computers to understand how to solve problems. You will also have the opportunity to apply your theory to real-life projects through case-studies and internships.

Engineering degrees are extremely varied and can focus on particular parts of the engineering industry or just a general overview of the technical processes. Whichever degree you choose to study, you will graduate with a host of transferable skills that will enable you to work in a variety of industries.

It is recommended for students to choose an engineering degree programme that is general rather than specific so that their job prospects are wider. If you choose a course such as aerospace engineering, your job scope is only limited to the aerospace industry. A degree in mechanical engineering or mechatronic engineering would provide you the opportunity to work in the aerospace industry as well as other industries.

Engineering students will gain skills such as project management, analysis and your practical experience

act as great foundations for careers in other industries. It isn’t uncommon to find top quality engineers in banking, politics and financial sectors. Many graduates do not work in the field that they graduate in. This is normal.

Before starting your career in engineering it is important to know which engineering field you would like to specialise in because of the variety of sectors within the engineering industry. If you are certain of what type of engineer you wish to become, you should study a degree which focuses specifically on that field of study.

If you are not sure, that is still alright as students after SPM or O-Levels can take the Foundation course at a reputable private university for one year. During that one year, you should talk to the seniors and lecturers to figure out which engineering field best fits you.

To enter into the Foundation in Engineering or Foundation in Science, students after SPM or O-Levels will need at least 5 credits including Maths and Physics (Chemistry for Chemical Engineering) and pass in BM and Sejarah. With 3 credits in SPM including Maths and a Science subject, students can join the Diploma in Engineering course before entering into Year 2 of the Degree course.

There are a wide variety of specialisations, and the more popular engineering fields in Malaysia are listed below for you to browse through.

Students should choose your engineering field by passion. Ask yourself, “What gets me excited? Projections may show a future demand in certain engineering fields, but do you want to work very hard for the next four years in order to get a job in an area you don’t really like?

Students should identify your true interests. Do you like tinkering with devices? Mechanical engineering or mechatronic engineering are good choices for you. Are you passionate about solving the energy crisis? Then you might consider petroleum engineering, chemical engineering, or electrical engineering. And if you spend all your spare time writing code, computer science is an appropriate career path.

Choosing to study in an engineering field that you have passion in, will make you more likely to succeed as you would be willing to put in the hard work needed to be an expert in your field.

Don’t worry I know it is very difficult for you to give the answer so I am here to help you to know your interest in a particular engineering field of study. It’s very simple just give the answer of some question and then decide yourself that which branch do you like most or which branch suited to you according to your interest. We will discuss so that you can choose the best engineering field to study according to your interest.

What is Electrical & Electronic Engineering?

  1. Have you ever open your switch board and repair it ?
  2. Do you want to know the functioning of your home electrical appliances ?
  3. Do you want to know what is really going on in a computer CPU ?
  4. Are u interested in sensors & transistor ?
  5. Do you want to make your own robot ?

If yes then this is the branch for you, again there is a small difference in electrical and electronics most of the syllabus content are same. In most college theses are separate branches but in some college they are same. In short we can say that electronics is subset of electrical. As far as placement and job opportunity is concerned then it depend from university to university.

What is Mechanical Engineering?

  1. Are you interested in bike and cars design ?
  2. Do you take interest in functioning of daily routine things ?
  3. Do you ask basic question to your teachers(i.e how this works ? how that works ?)
  4. Do you like physics ?
  5. Do you like additional maths?
  6. Do you like to make some new mechanism ?
  7. Do you like to use your engineering skills for a common man life ?

if yes then you are at right place mechanical engineering is for you. Mechanical Engineering requires real hard work. In most of the colleges mechanical and production are different branches but there syllabus content are more or less similar but in few college this is combine. There is a misconception that in this branch’s job opportunity are less as compared to computer science and electronics. Again it’s depend upon individual .This is called evergreen branch, nowadays there are a lot of job opportunity and money in this sector if you have talent and ready to work hard.

What is Civil Engineering?

  1. Are you interested in building making ?
  2. Are you ready to rock the world by your talent ?
  3. Have you ever think how this can be done after seeing a building ?

if yes then this is the branch for you. There is a misconception that in this branch’s job opportunity are less as compared to other branches of engineering. It is not so, if you are hardworking and talented then there are a lot of opportunity for civil engineers in Malaysia.

It’s important to consider which area of engineering you will specialise in, as they can lead to very different careers. Civil engineers build the structures that define our civilisation – bridges, buildings, transport systems. Electrical engineers study how technology can build new products, or develop new processes for manufacturing and design.

Or you could design and build planes, aircraft, robots, medical equipment, or even computer programmes. Whatever you choose, you can create and develop projects that improve and change lives.

Think carefully about what area of engineering interests you most – what do you want to achieve in the long term with your engineering study?

Chemical Engineering... is the branch of engineering that deals with the application of physical science (e.g., chemistry and physics), and life sciences (e.g., biology, microbiology and biochemistry) with mathematics and economics, to the process of converting raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable forms. Chemical engineers ensure the processes are operated safely, sustainably and economically when converting raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable forms.

Civil Engineering… is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction,

and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings. It is traditionally broken into several sub-disciplines including environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, municipal or urban engineering, water resources engineering, materials engineering, coastal engineering, surveying, and construction engineering. Civil engineering takes place on all levels: in the public sector and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.

Electrical Engineering… is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. It now covers a range of subtopics including power, electronics, control systems, signal processing and telecommunications. Usually electrical engineering is considered to deal with the problems associated with large-scale electrical systems such as power transmission and motor control, whereas electronic engineering deals with the study of small-scale electronic systems including computers and integrated circuits

Mechanical Engineering… is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics and

materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for the design, production, and operation of machines and tools. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.

The mechanical engineering field requires understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, and structural analysis. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product lifecycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, motorized vehicles, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and more.

Computer Engineering… deals with the design of computers and computer systems. This may involve the design of new hardware, the design of PDAs, USBs or the use of computers to control an industrial plant. Computer engineers may also work on a system’s software. However, the design of complex software systems is often the domain of software engineering, which is usually considered a separate discipline. Desktop computers represent a tiny fraction of the devices a computer engineer might work on, as computer-like architectures are now found in a range of devices including video game consoles and DVD players.

Mechatronics Engineering… is an engineering discipline which deals with the convergence of electrical and mechanical systems. Such combined systems are known as electromechanical systems and have widespread adoption. Examples include automated manufacturing systems, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems and various subsystems of aircraft and automobiles.

On a personal level, you will need to be confident, motivated and flexible.

In order to study engineering in Malaysia, you’ll obviously need a strong interest in problem solving, and maths and science, just as we discussed before, but you’ll also need a strong command of the English language. You’ll be spending a lot of time in the laboratory and you’ll be using your computer and maths skills a lot, in theory and practical work. There will be a lot of problem solving, and applying this to case studies, as well as work experience and theory essays.

As a general rule you’ll need to be good in maths, physics, chemistry and biology, and if you’re heading into a more specific area you’ll need to check out the specialist subjects for that, as they vary hugely. This is why it’s very important to decide on your subject quite soon, as you may need a different A level requirement, however as a general rule, maths and sciences are your basic needs.

You can contact EduSpiral Consultant Services to get a clearer idea on your specific requirements with regards to this, and ask about language support whilst you’re on campus.

What will a degree in Engineering cost at a top private university in Malaysia?

Obviously the course you choose and the university will all make a difference to how much the degree will cost in terms of tuition fees, and you should talk to your parents about how much they have set aside for your studies, as this will go a long way into funding your engineering study adventure.

As a general rule, and again, this depends on a lot of factors, you can expect a cost of around RM80,000 to RM180,000 total for the tuition fees for 4 years. You should be able to get help and advice on living arrangements from EduSpiral and the cost of living very much depends on which city you choose to study in. Most private universities in Malaysia will have on-campus accommodation and off-campus accommodation. It’s simply a case of looking into your options and your preferences.

As you can see, choosing engineering as your career means a lot of decisions to make, not only regarding the road you see your future career going down, in terms of the type of engineering you want to specialise in, but also the general things about studying abroad, such as the single most important one – which university?!

Studying Engineering in Malaysia Following the Guidelines of the 2012 Engineering Programme Accreditation Manual by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) found on the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) website

To gain a better understanding of what you will study in Engineering in Malaysia, I have taken the information below from the 2012 Engineering Programme Accreditation Manual by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) found on the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) website.

 

Note that only 4-year engineering degree programmes can be accredited by the EAC, not 3-year degrees.

I talked to EduSpiral on WhatsApp and after obtaining all the necessary information. EduSpiral met me and my parents at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia to take us around for a tour. Aun Jie, Chemical Engineering at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia

Therefore, when you choose the university to study at, you should look at the programme structure, facilities, lecturers’ qualifications, number of years offered at the university, and the experience of the university.

All graduate engineers must register with the BEM to practice engineering in

Malaysia.Having an EAC accredited engineering degree is the prerequisite for registration. The Public Service Department (JPA) would only allow graduates from the EAC accredited programmes or those recognized by EAC to join the public service.

Only programmes accredited by the EAC would be allowed to be offered at the institutions of higher learning in Malaysia, be it at public or private institutions.

 

English

In a survey of 422 engineering companies in Malaysia for a study by the Ministry of Higher Education on the Future of Engineering Education in Malaysia “There is also agreement among employers and leading engineers that local IHE graduates lack effective communication skills, both orally and in writing. In preparing the student for his professional career, the importance of mastering these soft skills must be further emphasised.”

New Engineering Programmes

Students who are the first batch of a new engineering programme at a university should be careful in choosing a university that has a good track record such as UCSI University or Asia Pacific University. Joining a university that has no track record in engineering will be risky as the engineering degree may not be accredited by the time the student graduates.

For a new programme, the university can only apply for accreditation at least 6 months before the final examination of the first intake of students.

Who is Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC)?

Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) is the body delegated by BEM for accreditation of engineering degrees. The EAC is made of representatives of the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM), The Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (IEM), Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA) and the Public Services Department (Jabatan Perkhidmatan Awam Malaysia (JPA)).

Academic Programme

The academic programme component must consist of a minimum total of 120 credit
hours (not including credits for remedial courses) made up as follows:
(a) A minimum of 80 credit hours shall be engineering courses consisting of
engineering sciences and engineering design/projects appropriate to the student’s
field of study.
(b) The remaining credit hours shall include sufficient content of general education
component (such as mathematics, computing, languages, general studies, cocurriculum, management, law, accountancy, economics, social sciences, etc.) that complements the technical contents of the curriculum.

The curriculum content should cover the following:

Petroleum Engineering Lab at UCSI University

Petroleum Engineering Lab at UCSI University

(i) Engineering mathematics, science, engineering principles, skills and tools
(computing, experimentation) appropriate to the discipline of study
(ii) Engineering applications – design and projects
(iii) Integrated exposure to professional engineering practice, including
management and professional ethics
(iv) Laboratory work to complement the science, computing and engineering
theory;
(v) Industrial training – exposure to professional engineering practice in an
engineering-practice environment;
(vi) Exposure to engineering practice;
(vii) Relevant tutorial classes to complement the lectures
(viii) Final year project.

Laboratory Work
Students should receive sufficient laboratory work to complement engineering theory that is learnt through lectures. The laboratory should help students develop competence in executing experimental work. Students should work in groups, preferably not more than five in a group.

Throughout the programme, there should be adequate provision for laboratory or similar investigative work, which will develop in the young engineer the confidence to deal with new and unusual engineering problems.

Industrial Training
Exposure to professional engineering practice is a key element in differentiating an

State-of-the-art engineering facilities at UCSI University

State-of-the-art engineering facilities at UCSI University

engineering degree from an applied science degree. Although the status of Corporate or
Professional Engineer requires a substantial period of experiential formation in industry after the completion of an accredited academic programme, it is clearly inadequate, over the first few critical years, for the student’s perceptions of engineering to develop in complete isolation from the realities of practice.

Exposure to Engineering Practice
Exposure to engineering practice shall also be integrated throughout the curriculum as

it is a key component. In addition, exposure to professional engineering practice may also be obtained through a combination of the following:
(i) Lectures/talks by guest lecturers from industry
(ii) Academic staff with industrial experience
(iii) Courses on professional ethics and conduct
(iv) Industry visits
(v) An industry-based final year project
(vi) Regular use of a logbook in which industrial experiences are recorded.

It is considered that there is no real substitute for first-hand experience in an
engineering-practice environment, outside the IHLs. The EAC advocates that all
engineering academic staff acquire some exposure to such experience, in addition to the other elements suggested, and make efforts to assist all students gain placements of suitable quality.

Final-Year Project

The final-year project can provide one of the best means of introducing an investigative research oriented approach to engineering studies. It is a requirement of the programme to include a significant project in its later stages. The final-year project is required to seek individual analysis and judgement, capable of being assessed independently. The student among others is expected to develop techniques in literature review and information processing, as necessary with all research approaches.

It is recommended that final-year projects should also provide opportunities to utilise appropriate modern technology in some aspects of the work, emphasising the need for engineers to make use of computers and multimedia technology in everyday practice.

Design Projects
Design projects shall include complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes integrating core areas and meeting specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

Engineering Sciences, Principles, and Applications
An accredited programme is expected to cover the broad areas of the respective disciplines at an appropriate level. The following are examples of underpinning courses that may be introduced for the respective disciplines:

Civil Mechanical Electrical Chemical Electronics
Strength of Materials Materials Circuits & Signals Chemical Thermo-dynamics Circuits & Signals
Structural Analysis & Design Statistics & Dynamics Electro-magnetic Fields & Waves Material & Energy Balance Electro-magnetic Fields & Waves
Fluid Mechanics/Hydraulics Fluid Mechanics Instrumentation & Control Chemical Kinetics & Reactor Design Instrumentation & Control
Soil Mechanics/Geotechnical Engineering Thermo-dynamics & Heat Transfer Digital & Analogue Electronics Momentum Transfer Digital & Analogue Electronics
Civil Engineering Materials Mechanical Design Machines & Drives Heat Transfer Microprocessor Systems

Highway & Transportation Electrical Power & Machines Electronic Drives & Applications Safety & Environmental Protection Electronic System Analysis & Design
Environmental Studies Electronics & Micro-processors Electrical Energy Utllisation Environmental Studies Multimedia Technology & Applications
Computer Aided Engineering Plant & Equipment Design
Viability – Legal Framework, Economics, Operability & Reliability

Mathematics, Statistics and Computing
These courses should be studied to a level necessary to underpin the engineering courses of the programme and with a bias towards application. The use of numerical methods of solution is encouraged, with an appreciation of the power and limitations of the computer for modelling engineering situations. Wherever practicable, it is preferred that mathematics, statistics and computing are taught in the context of their application to engineering problems and it follows that some mathematical techniques may be learnt within other subjects of the course. In addition to the use of computers as tools for calculation, analysis and data processing, the programme should introduce their application in such area as given in the following table:

Civil Mechanical Electrical Chemical Electronics
Computer Aided Analysis & Design Computer Aided Design & Manufacture Mathematical Applications Computer Analysis & Design Mathematical Applications
Economics Analysis for Decision Making Economics Analysis for Decision Making Statistical & Numerical Techniques Economics Analysis for Decision Making Statistical & Numerical Techniques
Databases & Information Systems Databases & Information Systems Computer Applications Numerical Methods & Optimisation Computer Applications

equivalency of engineering degree programmes accredited by the responsible bodies in each of the signatory countries such as the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).

Washington Accord is an agreement among the engineering quality assurance organisations of several nations that recognises the substantial equivalency of programs accredited by those organisations.

The agreement paves the way for mutual recognition of accredited programmes, establishing the notion that graduates have met the academic requirements for entry to the practice of engineering in any signatory country.

Signatories have full rights of participation in the Accord; qualifications accredited or recognised by other signatories are recognised by each signatory as being substantially equivalent to accredited or recognised qualifications within its own jurisdiction.

Admission to the Accord is more importantly an endorsement that the engineering education system of the member nation has demonstrated a strong, longterm commitment to quality assurance in producing engineers ready for industry practice in the international scene.

As a Washington Accord signatory, Malaysia’s degrees that have been accredited by Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC)

Members of The Washington Accord are Hong Kong, South Africa, Japan, Singapore, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, UK, Ireland, Taipei, Korea, Malaysia and Turkey.

The Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM), The Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) and Association of Consulting Engineers Malaysia (ACEM) develop and use the EMF Register as a secure benchmark that allows a professional engineer to be recognised or exempted from licensing or registration in other countries (other than that in which they first gained recognition).

Eligibility for admission to EMF International Register of Professional Engineers Register is limited only to engineers who have completed an accredited or recognised engineering programme, registered with the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) and is a corporate member of the IEM who is capable of independent practice.

To qualify for admission to EMF International Register of Professional Engineers Register, a candidate must be:

  • A Professional Engineer registered with the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) and/or a Corporate Member with the Institution of Engineers Malaysia;
  • Seven years experience after graduation in a recognised engineering discipline;

There is a shortage of qualified engineers in Malaysia suitable for the crucial role of overseeing construction projects and infrastructure development works, according to the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM).
IEM president Datuk Lim Chow Hock told StarBiz that there were only about 150,000 experienced engineers in Malaysia.

“We are still short of 50,000 to meet the requirement in the construction and infrastructure sectors. The experienced engineers are needed in the consultation and management departments,” he said. Lim added that the demand for consultation and management engineers for government construction and infrastructure projects would mitigate the impact of the slowdown taking place in the construction industry.

“About 70% of our members are engineers in the development and construction sectors. “They can easily be reabsorbed to play consultation and management roles for government projects,” he said.

Lim added that about 30% of the members were involved in the electrical, electronic, and mechanical engineering industries. The IEM currently has about 43,000 members.

On the quality of the local engineering graduates, Lim said that there was concern on quality because a study done three years ago by IEM revealed that the local engineering graduates lacked certain fundamental understanding of engineering principles. “This is affecting their ability to execute their duties effectively.

In the Third Outline Perspective Plan and the Eighth Malaysia plan, it is estimated that there will be a high demand for engineers where there are estimated 230,000 engineers and technicians for the year 2000 and the projected figure for 2010 is 470,000.  (Source OPP3/8MP/EPU). Engineering is a respected profession that pays well. On average, people who graduate with a degree in engineering earn higher salaries than those with other bachelor’s degrees. Studies indicate that there will be a shortage of engineers well into the 21st century.

Furthermore, choose top private universities in Malaysia where the engineering degrees are accredited by MQA and the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM). Currently, according to BEM there are 11010 Professional Engineers and 81771 Graduate Engineers in Malaysia. Malaysia needs around 275,000 and 300,000 engineers in 5 and 10 years respectively.

In a 2006 Report by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education, Mechanical engineering is viewed as the field of engineering most highly demanded in the future with a projected increase of 24% from 5 to 10 years (from an estimated number of engineers of 58000 to 72000).

About 8% of the respondents indicated a demand for other engineering fields, such as biomedical, computer engineering, instrumentation and technology, marine technology, mechatronic, software engineering and process engineering. According to the report, the demand is highest for: Mechanical Engineers, next is Electrical, Civil, Electronic and finally Chemical.

Malaysia needs more than 1,000 engineers annually to meet industry demands, said Talent Corporation Malaysia (TalentCorp). TalentCorp CEO Johan Mahmood Merican said engineers in the electric and electronic (E&E) and oil and gas (O&G) sectors are highly sought after.

“The industry is hungry for engineers,” he said after opening the Sector Focus Career Fair 2014 at the Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) campus here.

Mirroring Johan Mahmood’s assessment was Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) Industry Talent Management Division director Mohamad Ismail Abu Bakar. He said there was a need for expertise in electric and electronic (E&E) , oil and gas (O&G), mechanical engineering and chemical engineering.

“This is based on the type of projects MIDA has approved for investments coming in,” he said.

  • Electrical and Electronic, where manufacturing, research and development as well as design for Malaysian companies driving innovation will be focused upon.
  • Oil and gas sector led by a well developed pool of local talent and companies that are able to compete globally.
  • Green industries and services. Expertise in complex manufacturing and those in the solar and alternative energy sectors will be much sought after alongside those involved in the commercialisation of natural bio-diversity into high value products.

Electrical and electronics engineers form the core of various technology-ledcompanies in Malaysia.

In a report conducted by IPSOS Business Consulting in 2012 on the E&E Sector Study on the Supply-Demand of Talent in Malaysia, it is found that there is a shortage of Electrical & Electronic Engineers in Malaysia.

The E&E sector is an important contributor to Malaysia’s economy as it is one of the 12 National Key Economic Areas (NKEA) in the country’s Economic Transformation Programme (ETP). There are 1,900 active E&E companies which provide employment to over 350,000 people.

The report found that Fresh Graduates or Entry-level Talent Not Industry-Ready (lacks required skill-sets) therefore choosing a university that can provide the necessary industry relevant teaching and training is imperative.

Furthermore, Electrical and electronics engineers who possess solid analytical and communication skills will have a clear advantage over the others.

Telecommunication is the means of communicating through the transmission of signals. In today’s world, it is all around us – from 4G connectivity to streaming videos to mobile downloads, and so on.

The  IPSOS report identified eight key talent shortage areas in the E&E field and one of the areas in demand for Telecommunications Engineers. They are responsible for the analysis, design, implementation, optimization and enhancement of wireless telecommunications products and networks.

talent exists in these areas and as such competition is fierce. Strong local candidates with eight or more years of experience are very much in demand.

Lead Process Engineers, Engineering Managers, Lead Mechanical Engineers, Control & Instrumentation Engineers and Project Managers – Employers have won projects and now need to hire these professionals. In most demand are candidates with offshore projects experience or FPSO projects experience. Employers also expect that such talent will have experience working in a multicultural team.

Trends

Operating companies are going through the planning process for 2014.  The expectation is that a number of junior level positions will be created in the large established operators that are looking to build a good pipeline of home-grown local talent.  These jobs will typically range from fresh graduate positions to roles suitable for candidates with three to four years of experience.

The policy of Malaysianisation will continue this year. Yet a skill shortage exists across the board, particularly for more experienced candidates with eight or more years of experience. Candidates with niche experience also continue to be in demand.

Undergraduate degrees from top private universities in Malaysia typically take four years to complete and give you a broad understanding of the subject field, as well as developing your theoretical and practical techniques which could be transferred to almost any industry. UK engineering bachelor degrees are 3 years in duration and the 4th year is the M.Eng. or Master in Engineering.

The engineering degree programmes from Curtin University Sarawak, Heriot-Watt University MalaysiaAsia Pacific University, Taylor’s UniversityUCSI University, and KDU University College Utropolis Glenmarie are four years in duration and are accredited or pending accreditation by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM). The engineering degrees are four years in duration because of the requirement by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) in order for graduates to become professional engineers.

UK Engineering undergraduate degrees are offered as BEng or MEng, with the latter taking four years of full-time study. A BEng takes three years to complete and graduates are still able to find work without any problems. However, in order to become a professional engineer in Malaysia, a four-year engineering degree is required, therefore, graduates with a UK BEng degree will need to take a top-up and obtain the MEng.

For example, students can obtain a BEng from the engineering degrees at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia

  1. If you ever want or need to become a consulting, engineer, you must be licensed as an Ir or P.Eng.
  2. Only a Ir/P.Eng. can sign and seal engineering documents that are engineering documents that are submitted to a public authority or for public and private clients.
  3. Many companies encourage licensure and some even pay a bonus for becoming a P.Eng.
  4. In education, more universities are requiring a Ir/P.Eng. license to lecture in the engineering faculty or for holding certain positions.
  5. In some industries such as utilities, and government positions, a P.Eng. is required for specified jobs or positions.
  6. With the engineering profession now operating in an international environment, licensing may be required to work in or for other countries. You will be prepared in the event your career moves in this direction (e.g. APEC Engineers, EMF Int. Engineer Register, Washington Accord)

What is the the Washington Accord?

The Washington Accord is a multinational agreement signed in 1989, which recognises the substantial

equivalency of engineering degree programmes accredited by the responsible bodies in each of the signatory countries such as the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).

Washington Accord is an agreement among the engineering quality assurance organisations of several nations that recognises the substantial equivalency of programs accredited by those organisations.

The agreement paves the way for mutual recognition of accredited programmes, establishing the notion that graduates have met the academic requirements for entry to the practice of engineering in any signatory country.

Signatories have full rights of participation in the Accord; qualifications accredited or recognised by other signatories are recognised by each signatory as being substantially equivalent to accredited or recognised qualifications within its own jurisdiction.

Admission to the Accord is more importantly an endorsement that the engineering education system of the member nation has demonstrated a strong, longterm commitment to quality assurance in producing engineers ready for industry practice in the international scene.

As a Washington Accord signatory, Malaysia’s degrees that have been accredited by Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC)

Students should choose your engineering field by passion. Ask yourself, “What gets me excited? Projections may show a future demand in certain engineering fields, but do you want to work very hard for the next four years in order to get a job in an area you don’t really like?

Students should identify your true interests. Do you like tinkering with devices? Mechanical engineering or mechatronic engineering are good choices for you. Are you passionate about solving the energy crisis? Then you might consider petroleum engineering, chemical engineering, or electrical engineering. And if you spend all your spare time writing code, computer science is an appropriate career path.

Choosing to study in an engineering field that you have passion in, will make you more likely to succeed as you would be willing to put in the hard work needed to be an expert in your field.

Don’t worry I know it is very difficult for you to give the answer so I am here to help you to know your interest in a particular engineering field of study. It’s very simple just give the answer of some question and then decide yourself that which branch do you like most or which branch suited to you according to your interest. We will discuss so that you can choose the best engineering field to study according to your interest.
