What are the differences between electrical engineering and electronics engineering?

Multimedia University (MMU) Cyberjaya Engineering Student won the 2016 IEEE Malaysia ComSoc/VTS Joint Chapter Outstanding Dissertation Award

Electrical engineering deals with heavy current and high voltage circuits, control, machines, communications, power systems, power electronics, math, and computer technology related courses. Electrical engineering is an engineering discipline that deals with the study and application of electricity and electromagnetism. Its practitioners are called electrical engineers.

Electrical engineering is a broad field that encompasses many subfields. Electrical engineering has many subfields dealing with the various aspects of electromagnetism. Some work directly with Maxwell’s equations to manipulate RF signals, some with power, and some with signal manipulation. (Power engineering deals not only with electricity generation, electric power transmission, and electricity distribution but also with electrical circuits and materials (e.g. insulators, semiconductors) that need to withstand high voltages and

currents.)

Electronics engineering deals with light current and low voltage circuits, control, communications, integrated circuit, signal processing, math and basic courses on power system, power electronics, machines, and computer technology related courses.

Electronics engineers design and test electrical networks (more commonly known as circuits) that take advantage of electromagnetic properties of electrical components or discrete/elements (such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, transistors, diodes, semiconductors) to achieve the desired functionality. One of several ubiquitous examples is the tuner circuit, which allows the user of a radio to filter out all but a single station, corresponding to a desired signal frequency (such as those in AM and FM radios).

manufacture and maintenance of systems that use microprocessors and actuators to control mechanical processes.

The key element is the integration of these different areas into the design process from start to finish. Mechatronics engineers understand how to do this and enable the intelligent operation of mechanical systems. It also involves installing, operating and modifying mechanical and electronic equipment and in areas like manufacturing, aviation, robotics and defense.

Mechatronics engineers also have roles in project engineering where their cross disciplinary knowledge gives them an edge on mechanical or electrical engineers. Mechatronics engineers can work with electrical and mechanical systems together and solve problems that cross discipline boundaries. Their strength in IT, computer hardware and networking as well as software also helps them to be very versatile problem solvers.

Mechatronic Engineers are also involved in the design, construction and running of factory production lines and processes, where they use their skills in computers; micro-controllers; programmable logic controllers; programming; industrial sensors; hydraulic, pneumatic and electric drives; design of mechanical structures and mechanisms; and knowledge of manufacturing processes.
A mechatronics engineer unites the principles of mechanics, electronics, and computing to generate a simpler, more economical and reliable system. Its application areas range from power systems to transportation to optical telecommunications to biomedical engineering, along with a host of others.

Mechatronic systems are almost everywhere you look. For example, it can be applied to the automotive industry in the increasing combination of the mechanical part of the engine with electronics and artificial intelligence.

NASA Mars Rover

Another example is the Mars Rover that NASA built to send to planet Mars for research gathering purposes. The Mars Rover was the product of several years of research and development to ensure engineers on earth could effectively control the Rover on the unpredictable terrain of the planet Mars.

It had to be able to negotiate any terrain encountered as well as perform fine motions to grab and sample rock and soil – much like expecting a rugby union prop to also be an accomplished ballet dancer! Of course that call occurred after a brilliant and novel Mars landing strategy was developed.

Another Example: The anti-lock braking system
Cars need brakes. Cars have always had brakes. But the design of brakes has been improved over time, making them better, more responsive and safer. Now, thanks to modern sensing, actuation, computing and control technologies, braking systems are more amazing than ever before. Using technology to adjust the braking system in a split second has meant brakes are more responsive and deliver the greatest coefficient of friction possible.

It may sound a bit far-fetched but Mechatronic engineers create smart machines that are aware of their

surroundings and can make decisions. These smart machines are complex beings made up of several parts: the mechanical system itself, the sensing and actuation, the control systems and the software. The opportunities available to develop such intelligent machines are ever evolving.

The future is virtually unlimited for mechatronics, and much of it is here today. Robotic systems and components are already as small as a few microns and researchers are investigating nano-technologies using mechatronic systems for implantation into the human body to repair or replace damaged physiological functions.

The next two decades will see an explosion of automated mechatronic systems infiltrating our lives more and more every year – improving our quality of life and our knowledge of the world and universe we live in. Offices, homes, factories, and more are becoming more and more mechanised to be efficient.

What do Mechatronics Engineers work as in Malaysia?

I wasn’t sure which university to study at and found EduSpiral online. He provided good advise & helped me with my application. I love my university life now.
Hanson, Foundation in Science (Engineering) at UCSI University

What do Mechatronic Engineers do?           

Robotic PLC Micro-Processor Lab for engineering students at UCSI University

Robotic PLC Micro-Processor Lab for engineering students at UCSI University

In a nutshell, a mechatronic engineer is responsible for combining the elements of mechanical engineering and electronics engineering to design and develop mechatronic products. Elements of electrical engineering and computer science (in the form of software design and software engineering) play a part in the daily work of mechatronic engineers too.

Likewise, a Robotic Arm is a prime example of a mechatronics system because it includes aspects of mechanics, electronics, control and soft-computing to do its day-to-day jobs.

Engineers from different fields of expertise work in teams on projects. For example, in a project, the Electrical & Electronics Engineer will give an in-depth analysis on the Electrical characteristics while the Mechanical engineer focuses on the physical mechanics. The software engineer will provide the software for the machine to function. With knowledge from all areas, the mechatronics engineer will be an ideal project manager.

Engineers from different fields of expertise work in teams on projects. For example, in a project, the Electrical & Electronics Engineer will give an in-depth analysis on the Electrical characteristics while the Mechanical engineer focuses on the physical mechanics. The software engineer will provide the software for the machine to function. With knowledge from all areas, the mechatronics engineer will be an ideal project manager.

Here are some things you might be expected to do in your job:

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)

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,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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
Operational Research Operational Research Operational Research

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)

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.
