A lawyer is also known as an attorney, solicitor, barrister or advocate and is an individual who has obtained the necessary qualifications to be called to the bar to practice law. Lawyer can act as both advocates and advisors on behalf of their clients.

A lawyer, also known as an “attorney,” “counselor,” solicitor,” “barrister” or “advocate,” is an individual licensed by the state to engage in the practice of law and advise clients on legal matters. Lawyers act as both advocates and advisors on behalf of their clients. As advocates, they represent either the plaintiff (the party filing the lawsuit) or the defendant (the party defending the lawsuit), advancing their client’s case through oral argument and through written documents such as motions and briefs. As advisors, lawyers counsel clients on how the facts of their particular case apply to the law.

Although lawyers affect nearly every aspect of society in a range of positions and industries, their basic duties are the same–to represent the needs of their clients in civil and criminal trials. Lawyers can specialize in bankruptcy, international, elder, probate, or environmental law. The growing field of intellectual property is also seeing a growing level of attention from lawyers.

Other than practicing law in the courtroom, lawyers can find jobs in other areas such as:

  • Advocates & Solicitors
  • LegalSecretary
  • Corporate Counsel
  • Judiciary
  • Arbitrator
  • Company Secretary
  • Attorney-General’s Chambers
  • Forensic Investigator
  • Journalist
  • Legal Writer & Editor
  • Academician
  • Politician

Lawyers can also choose to work in other industries

Education and academic administration

You can work as a lecturer or marketing staff in the colleges that offer Law

programmes. Legal knowledge is also useful in non-teaching positions at universities, work in the law library or admissions.

Banking and finance

Lawyers with experience in securities, trusts and estates, tax or banking law, you can venture into the lucrative field of banking and finance. Positions include:  risk manager, estate planning advisor, trust officer, financial planner, commercial loans officer and mutual fund administrator.

Conflict resolution

Arbitration, mediation and negotiation are growing fields employing individuals with legal backgrounds as arbitrators and mediators. Hospitals, school associations, universities and government agencies all hire professionals with strong communication and dispute resolution skills. Note that mediation positions may not be full-time – mediators tend to be retained on a contract basis to assist with a specific dispute.

Government and politics

The federal and provincial governments often hire lawyers as policy analysts to gather

and research information, analyze issues in written reports and coordinate the development of strategic policy. Matters involving policy related issues range from health and transportation to education and the environment. Politics is another popular field for lawyers. Positions include speech writer, political fundraiser, campaign manager, lobbyist or even political candidate.

Human resources

Companies need talented professionals to recruit new people and oversee their staff. You can work as a hiring coordinator, human resources administrator or training manager. And don’t forget working within the legal profession as a non-lawyer – inside knowledge of the legal industry makes you well suited for a job as a law firm administrator, head of associate recruiting, marketing director or professional development manager.

Legal consulting

A lawyer should be able to present his facts clearly and speak well

Some lawyers consult to law firms in law office management, marketing and client development. If you’re tech-savvy, you can put your knowledge about legal software to work as an information technology consultant. With a nursing background, you can work as a legal nurse consultant, reviewing medical records in medical malpractice and personal injury cases, providing advice to the lawyers involved and acting as an expert witness.

Legal writing, editing and publishing

A lawyer’s research and writing skills are particularly useful. Several lawyers work as freelance legal writers and editors – contributing articles for legal publications, writing

do-it-yourself law books and researching/writing booklets on legal topics like divorce and landlord/tenancy matters for poverty law groups and government-funded organizations. Other one-time lawyers are now legal or business columnists for newspapers and magazines. Still others write content for law firm websites or are full-time editors for bar association newsletters and law, business or accounting publications.

How do you become a Lawyer in Malaysia?

Law students at Taylor's University

Law students at Taylor’s University

The 1st step after SPM or O-Levels is to find the right college to study your A-Levels or South Australian MatriculationThe best private colleges in Malaysia for the A-Levels  programme are Taylors College,HELP AcademyKDU Penang University CollegeKDU College Damansara Jaya and UCSI University. Best College in Malaysia for the 1-year Cambridge Pre-Law A-Levels is KDU College.

The best private colleges in Malaysia for South Australian Matriculation (SAM)/SACE International Pre-University programme are Taylors College Subang Jaya, Taylor’s College Sri Hartamas and Disted College Penang.

After you obtain at least 2 principals in the A-Levels, you can either go for the law degree i.e. LLB (Hons) from recognised universities such as Taylor’s University or KDU College or take up the UK Law Degree Transfer Programme at the same universities and study 2 years in Malaysia and go to the UK for your final year.

Upon completing your degree, you may choose to take up the Bar Vocational Course (BVC) in the UK and

be called up to the English Bar or choose to come back to Malaysia to sit for a qualifying exam in order to obtain the Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP).

When you complete all the required exams, you will undergo a 9-month training commonly known as chambering or pupilage. This is the period where one is exposed to the working world of law. You can be paid between RM300-RM1000 for this period.

While serving the 9-month pupilage you will still need to sit through some exams conducted by Malaysian Bar and partake in Malaysian Bar legal aid programme before you can be called to the Malaysian Bar to become a qualified lawyer

Four Steps to Become a Lawyer in Malaysia after SPM or O-Levels

  1. Take a Recognised Pre-University Course. Students after SPM or O-Levels will need at least 5Cs or Credits including English and Maths. The internal Foundation is not recognised for students who want to take the CLP in order to practice. Generally, the A-Levels is the best option for students wanting to pursue a law degree in Malaysia or in the UK.
  2. Earn a law degree from an approved university. Before enrolling with a university, verify that the LL.B course is an honors program and is approved by the Legal Profession Qualifying Board Malaysia, or by the Malaysia Bar. Failure to graduate from an approved program will preclude you from applying to take the Malaysian Bar examinations.

 ◦
  3. Complete a Bar Vocational Course (BVC) or Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP). The BVC is offered in Great Britain and is a popular option for most Malaysians due to its excellent reputation and job prospects. The alternative in Malaysia is the examination known as the Certificate in Legal Practice. Passing either one is mandatory to be called to the Bar. Note that graduates of the University of Malaya or National University of Singapore have already satisfied these requirements and do not need to sit for these examinations.
  4. 
Sign up for “chambering.” This is a practical training course that lasts nine months, during which the new graduate is attached to a lawyer, law firm, legal agency or other such program to acquire practical legal skills. It is a nonsalaried position; however, most law firms will provide a basic monthly allowance, and depending on the size of the firm this may range from 300 to 1,000 Malaysian Ringgit. During the training attachment, you will still be required to pass all Malaysian Bar examinations and legal aid programs. Only upon completion of these will the graduate be called to the Bar as a fully-qualified lawyer and allowed to practice independently.

The Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP)

This Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP) is one of those qualifications entitling the holder to become a qualified person. The examination is conducted by the Board by virtue of section 5(e) of the Act. Applications to sit for the CLP examinations are open to holders of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) degrees conferred by the universities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and certain universities in Australia and New Zealand whose qualifications are not gazetted under section 3 of the Act.

Like all law graduates, CLP graduates must proceed to read in chambers or better known as chambering, which is a form of apprenticeship similar to a pupillage in England. After completing nine (9) months of chambering, the student may finally be called to the bar and become a qualified lawyer. Examinations are normally held around July each year.

Every student is required to sit for five subject papers. The said examination is conducted once a year where candidates are examined on the following subjects:

a. General Paper;

b. Civil Procedure;

c. Criminal Procedure;

d. Evidence;

e. Professional Practice

For holders of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) degrees from England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the board has set certain guidelines on qualifications and requirements to qualify to sit for the CLP examinations. The Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP) is a course and examination taken by foreign law graduates in order to become a qualified lawyer in Malaysia. The examination is conducted by the Legal Profession Qualifying Board of Malaysia and is governed by the Legal Profession Act 1976. The Board allows degree holders from certain universities in the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand to sit for the examination.

If a student fails one paper he or she may be given a conditional pass and be allowed to resit that subject two more times. However, if a student failed in two or more papers, he must sit for the whole examination again in order to obtain the certificate. A student is allowed to sit for the examination four times. The Legal Profession Qualifying Board only sets the examination and does not provide classes to prepare the candidate for the examination.

Entry Requirements by the Legal Profession Qualifying Board as Found in the Malaysian Bar Website

It is very important to check with the Malaysian Bar as to the latest Entry Requirements. If you study Foundation, Diploma or other Pre-University programme not recognised by the Qualifying Board, you may not be allowed to sit for the CLP.

Admission Requirements for the Legal Profession Qualifying Board Malaysia is taken from the Malaysian Bar website. For the latest guidelines, please contact the Legal Profession Qualifying Board Malaysia at:

Guidelines on Qualifications and Requirements for Recognition of holders of Australian and New Zealand Law Degrees to become ‘Qualified Person’ under the Legal Profession Act 1976.

Introduction

All matters pertaining to the qualifications and requirements for admission to the Bar in Malaysia are governed by the provisions under the Legal Profession Act 1976 (the Act). To be eligible for admission, a candidate must satisfy all requirements as are provided in the Act which may be broadly categorised as follows:

  • academic requirements
  • practical requirements
  • formal requirements

As to the academic requirements, this is satisfied if a candidate can show that he/she is a ‘qualified person’ within the meaning of section 3 of the Act. Under the Act, ‘qualified person’ means any person who:

  • has passed the final examination leading to the degree of Bachelor of Laws of the University of Malaya, the University of Malaya in Singapore, the University of Singapore or the National University of Singapore;
  • is a barrister-at-law of England; or
  • in possession of such other qualification as may by notification in the Gazette be declared by the Board to be sufficient to make a person a qualified person for the purposes of the Act.
    Such person must then satisfy the practical and formal requirements before he/she may petition for admission.

In exercise of the powers conferred by para (c) above, the Legal Profession Qualifying Board (the Qualifying Board) has declared various qualifications, thus making a holder of any one of those qualifications a qualified person under the Act. Indeed, all law degrees (LL.B) from Australia and New Zealand, which are at present recognised for the purposes of the Act, have gained recognition through various Gazette Notifications made under para (c) above.

For the recognition of Australia and New Zealand law degrees, the approach taken by the Qualifying Board in the past is to determine the university whose LL.B degree is to be recognised and to specify additional requirements to be satisfied before the holder of that LL.B degree is deemed to be a qualified person for purposes of section 3 of the Act. This is then declared by notification in the Gazette.

At present a person who has passed the final examination leading to the degree of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) from 14 universities in Australia and 5 universities in New Zealand, as listed in the relevant Gazette Notifications, and who is qualified to gain admission as a barrister or solicitor in New Zealandand in the case of Australia, in the State in which the university is situated, and having passed the requisite subjects prescribed by the respective Barristers/Solicitors Board or its equivalent, is a qualified person for the purposes of section 3 of the Act.

In 1994, the Qualifying Board decided to review the recognition of all qualifications under the Act including the present position of the LL.B degrees from Australia and New Zealand. This review was necessary taking into account the changes that have taken place since those qualifications were first considered and the recent trends and practices in legal education and training of lawyers. The Qualifying Board also felt that it had to specify its own requirements in order to conform to the new Malaysian needs in achieving and maintaining the required standard for admission to the Malaysian Bar and to provide for a uniform criteria for admission.

In March 1995, the Qualifying Board announced a new set of Guidelines for holders of LL.B degrees from universities in the United Kingdom (U.K.) to qualify to enter the Malaysian Certificate in Legal Practice examination (CLP) with the view of admission to the Bar. The Qualifying Board has now decided to introduce new Guidelines on the academic requirements for holders of Australian and New Zealand law degrees which are outlined below:

Guidelines on the New Academic Requirements

These Guidelines shall specify the requirements and criteria before a law degree from Australia and New Zealand is deemed to have satisfied the academic requirements and making a holder of such a law degree a qualified person for the purposes of section 3 of the Act. These new Guidelines are contained in Part One and Part Two.

It should be emphasised that these new Guidelines are applicable only to those who intend to use such law degrees to qualify for admission to the Bar in Malaysia and not to bar any person from acquiring such law degree for other purposes.

These Guidelines are introduced after careful study and discussions since 1994. In particular, they take into account of the following:

  • a special report commissioned by the Qualifying Board on law degrees in Australian and New Zealand;
  • visits and discussions the Qualifying Board had with the relevant authorities in Australian and New Zealand;
  • changes that have taken place in the area of legal education and training of lawyers in Australian, New Zealand and Malaysia; and
  • the need to streamline all academic qualifications which are being used for purposes of admission to the Bar in Malaysia.

These Guidelines consist of TWO parts:

  • Part One : New academic requirements and criteria to be satisfied before the holder of a law degree is deemed to be a qualified person under the Act.
  • Part Two: The qualifying degrees. The list of universities and their respective law programmes recognised by the Qualifying Board.

    To qualify as a lawyer in the UK, you need to follow a prescribed path, and pass modules in seven areas known as the Foundations of Legal Knowledge. These usually lead to an LLB (Bachelor of Law) or BA (Hons) Law. You’ll then progress to the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or the Bar Vocational Course (BVC), leading to a qualification as a lawyer or a barrister.

    The advantage of going for the UK Bar is that you can practice worldwide while the CLP only allows you to practice within Malaysia. You can save money by going for the UK Law Twinning or Transfer program at the best universities in Malaysia. This will ensure that you will have a successful career.

    Students after SPM who are interested to pursue law should go for the A-Levels. To practice as a lawyer in Malaysia, the A-Levels are recognised by the Malaysian Bar.

    Best Architecture Degree Programmes at Premier Private Universities in Malaysia with Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia (LAM) Accreditation

    Architecture students at Taylor's University

    Architecture students at Taylor’s University

    If you are interested in creating things, buildings and spaces, technology, art and design, a career in architecture may be for you. Basically, an architect is a person who creates the designs of buildings. They don’t actually build them, that’s the job of the Civil Engineer. Architects role is like a project leader who works with different people to coordinate and get the building up on time within budget.

    The architecture profession in Malaysia is protected by law and is regulated by the Lembaga Akitek Negara (LAM). They govern the entire profession starting from the definition of an architect under the Malaysian Constitution, licensing, practice, acts and enactments as well as education.

    Another important body concerning architects is the Pertubuhan Arkitek Malaysia (PAM) who takes care of the well being of the architects including professional development from the lowest to the highest qualifications. They also organise functions and activities for their members.

    Designing Functional Legacies at Taylor’s University

    At SABD,Taylor’s University goal is to elevate our research centre, The Center for Modern Architecture Studies in Southeast Asia (MASSA), into a renowned research centre in Southeast Asia.

    We intend to address the urgent need to include modern architecture as part of the architectural heritage in Southeast Asia, thus aiding the process of planning settlements and designing buildings that are suited to the context and continuity of the cultures of Southeast Asia.

    As part of our initiatives to document our heritage, the students visited Kampung Cina, Kuala Terengganu, to examine the site and produce detailed drawings. These drawings were subsequently used to restore a temple to its former glory, after it was partly ruined in a fire.

    Other research projects undertaken by our students include:

    Architecture is the art of designing the human built environment. Buildings are one of the most visible productions of man, and

    Architecture students at UCSI University receive personal attention from their lecturers

    Architecture students at UCSI University receive personal attention from their lecturers

    vary greatly in design, function, and construction implementation across the globe. The vision that Architects conceive is projected onto the society and the built environment in which they practice.

    These conceptions and ideas will inadvertently have profound effects on the built environment, and consequently on the people who interact with that environment.

    Architecture is, therefore, an art form, the learning of which requires professional practice, personal artistic development and technical knowledge of building.

    The constant dialogue between society and the architect is what produces architecture – as a product and as well as a discipline.

    The architecture profession in Malaysia is protected by law. The regulating and governing body of the architecture profession in

    Malaysia is known as Lembaga Akitek Negara (LAM). They govern the entire profession starting from the definition of an architect under the Malaysian Constitution, licensing, practice, acts and enactments as well as education.

    The other body that concerns the well being of architects themselves is Pertubuhan Akitek Malaysia.

    It functions as an association that takes care of its members, organize functions and manages the professional development of an architect from the lowest to highest qualification. Just like Bar exams for lawyers, architects also require certain level of qualification that is a standard worldwide.

    The qualifications are known as LAM Part 1, 2 and 3. The equivalent of this is RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects), AIA (American Institute of Architects) and RAIA (Royal Australian Institute of Architects).

    The diagram above shows the career path of an architect. After graduating with Part 2, a person is known as an architect, and

    UCSI University architecture students are taught by qualified experienced industry professionals

    UCSI University architecture students are taught by qualified experienced industry professionals

    will be able to practice according to the job specification of an architect. This should be the minimum target of anyone pursuing this profession. Anything less is a waste of time.

    These qualifications can be obtained in two ways:

    • Obtaining a fully accredited degree (or equivalent) that carries Part 1 or 2 equivalent.
    • Sitting for individual exams after obtaining a non-accredited degree for Part or 2.

    Part 3 can only be obtained after practicing as an architect for a minimum of 2 years and fulfilling all the project requirements set by LAM.

    Fulfilling these needs, the architect will then submit themselves to a series of interviews and exams to determine that they are capable and absolutely qualified. These exams are conducted by Persatuan Arkitek Malaysia (PAM).

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?

    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

    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.

    Which is the best engineering degree to study in Malaysia?

    There are lots of great engineering courses to choose from, so we have picked some of the best degrees at different levels of cost, reputation and location for you to browse through. Let EduSpiral help you choose an engineering university or school that is right for you.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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
    Statics & Dynamics Instrumentation & Control Power Electronics Mass Transfer Programming Techniques
    Construction Engineering Vibrations Electrical Power Generation & High Voltage Engineering Separation Process Introduction to Electrical Power System
    Surveying Solid Mechanics Communications Systems Process Design Computer Architecture
    Water Resources & Hydrology Manufacturing/Production Power System Analysis Process Control & Instrumentation Communications System
    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
    Business & Management Systems On-line Control of Operations & Processes Databases & Information Systems
    Statistical & Numerical Techniques

    Engineering Applications
    Emphasis on engineering applications in degree programmes aims to ensure that all engineering graduates have a sound understanding of up-to-date industrial practice, in particular:

    Get a top ranked UK degree in Malaysia at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia

    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.

    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.

    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

    Get a top ranked UK degree in Malaysia at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia

    Get a top ranked UK degree in Malaysia at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia

    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)

    I met EduSpiral at the Education Fair and he helped me to filter all the information from the universities and choose the best university that fit me.”
    Vincent Hoy, Scholarship student at Asia Pacific University

    will be accepted by other Washington Accord signatories.

    This means that students who study in universities with engineering degrees that are accredited by MQA and Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) may find work in other countries that have signed the Washington Accord.

    Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) uses as a guide the list for Professional/Chartered Engineer by the accreditation organisations of the country where the degree is issued.

    Candidates are advised to check with the relevant Engineering Accreditation bodies’ web site for the list recognised degrees of professional chartered level.

    However, Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) reserves the right to review the list at any time without notice.

    Accredited Professional Engineers in Malaysia can work globally because of the Washington Accord

    In 2007, Malaysia became a member of The Washington Accord, which recognises experienced professional engineers

    represented by responsible bodies. The Washington Accord is a small group of signatories that have agreed to mutually recognise accredited engineering programmes.

    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;
    • Two years experience in responsible charge of significant work (may be obtained within the seven years experience)
    • Maintained their continuing professional development at a satisfactory level.

    Engineering Jobs in Demand in Malaysia Developed by the National Key Economic Activities (NKEAs)

    The NEAC will work with PEMANDU to develop the National Key Economic Activities (NKEAs) in the following areas:

    The Petroleum Engineering degree course at Curtin Sarawak is highly recommended for those seeking lucrative careers in the Oil & gas industry

    The Petroleum Engineering degree course at Curtin Sarawak is highly recommended for those seeking lucrative careers in the Oil & gas industry

    • 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 opportunity to obtain a world class top ranked UK degree in Malaysia at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia

    The opportunity to obtain a world class top ranked UK degree in Malaysia at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia

    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.

    Top Oil & Gas jobs in demand in Malaysia according to Hays Quarterly Hotspots

    Exploration Geologists, Development Geologists, and Reservoir and PetroleumEngineers – A shortage of qualified

    Petroleum Engineers can earn very high salaries

    Petroleum Engineers can earn very high salaries

    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.

    EPCM contractors, specialist contractors and subsea EPCM contractors have prepared their hiring plans for 2014. Mid-level and senior candidates will be in demand from March onwards.

    Again, local talent is preferred for short-term immediate contract positions.

    The Institute for Labour Market Information and Analysis (ILMIA), a division of the Ministry of Human Resources was set up in May 2012.

    As Malaysia’s leading labour information centre, it provides the analysis of labour market trends and emerging human capital issues for enabling human capital planning and labour policies formulation

    Carried out by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA), D-SETARA builds upon the initial Rating System for Malaysian Higher Education Institutions (SETARA) with the view of eventually replacing the latter rating system. The Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA), responsible for quality assurance of higher education for both public and private universities in Malaysia.While SETARA rates the overall quality of institutions, Discipline-based Rating System or D-SETARA assesses undergraduate teaching and learning at universities and university-colleges in Malaysia in specific fields of study.

    The rating system on Malaysian universities is different from SETARA. The former categorises universities as a whole using a tier system based on the Malaysian Qualifications Framework whereas D-SETARA assesses the quality of teaching and learning of a certain field of study only.

    Students planning to study at top universities in Malaysia will find the D-SETARA rating as a useful guide in helping them make the right decision.

    The Best Universities in Malaysia for Engineering, Hospitality & Tourism, Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy & Health Sciences as Rated by D-SETARA

    Taylor’s University is a top ranked private university in Malaysia

    The first four disciplines rated by D-SETARA were engineering, hospitality and tourism, medicine, dentistry and pharmacy as well as the health sciences.

    Like SETARA, the D-SETARA is voluntary and classifies institutions in six tiers;

    1. Tier Six (outstanding)
    2. Tier Five (excellent)
    3. Tier Four (very good)
    4. Tier Three (good)
    5. Tier Two (satisfactory)
    6. Tier One (weak)

    Only the hospitality and tourism discipline had a Tier Six institution —Taylor’s University. Tier Six is the

    UCSI University is ranked in the Top 300 Universities in Asia in 2015 by the renown QS University Rankings. UCSI University is ranked as Excellent or Tier 5 in the SETARA 2013 rating system by MQA.

    highest rating that a university can achieve.

    Universiti Malaya was the only Tier Five institution for the medicine, dentistry and pharmacy category. While UCSI University achieved a Tier Three ranking in this category.

    For engineering, 11 institutions were in Tier Five and some of the top universities are Curtin University, Sarawak Malaysia; UCSI University; Universiti Malaysia Perlis; University Putra Malaysia; Universiti Sains Malaysia; Universiti Teknologi Malaysia; Universiti Teknologi Mara; and more.

    What is the Discipline-Based Rating System (D-SETARA)?

    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.

    The Discipline-Based Rating System (D-SETARA) is a rating system developed and implemented to assess the quality of teaching and learning in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Malaysia. The system aims to rate the institutional level quality of teaching and learning of specific (clusters of) disciplines at level six (undergraduate level) of the Malaysian Qualifications Framework (MQF) in universities and university colleges.

    The system, the first of its kind, is a complement to the existing institutional rating through Sistem Penarafan Institusi Pengajian Tinggi Malaysia (SETARA) which has been successfully carried out for several years. Whilst SETARA focuses on the institution, D-SETARA focuses on the schools or faculties where the respective discipline is offered. The spirit is one of benchmarking against a set of quality standards for the purpose of improvement of the institution and discipline but not for competition between the institutions.

    The first D-SETARA exercise focuses on four clusters of disciplines: Engineering; Medicine, Dentistry and

    Our mum asked us to talk to EduSpiral as we did not know what to study. EduSpiral had helped our older sister before. He met us at Taylor’s, talked to us and then gave us a tour.
    Gan twins, Foundation in Arts at Taylor’s University

    Pharmacy; Health Sciences; and Hospitality and Tourism. Participation in D-SETARA is voluntary; invitations were made to all HEIs offering undergraduate programmes and have had the first batch of graduates in 2011. The Engineering discipline however, involved only HEIs which offer four-year degree programmes. The number of institutions rated in each discipline were 25 (Engineering), 15 (Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy), 14 (Health Sciences) and seven (Hospitality and Tourism).

    The ultimate aim of the exercise is a tier rating (based on a six tier rating system) of HEIs in each of the discipline. The basis for rating is the total scores and cut-off values determined for each of the tiers. The scope of evaluation of teaching and learning covers the main domains of Input-Process-Output, and under each of the domains there are criteria followed by indicators for each of the criteria.

    An instrument was developed by each sub-committee based on the SETARA ’09 and SETARA ’11

    EduSpiral took us around to tour the campus and the hostel giving me & my family the assurance that we are making the right choice.
    Jerry Cheong, Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

    instruments, this mainly done to ensure comparability with the institutional rating. The weight according to the domains: Input- Process-Output is similar to SETARA ’11, i.e., 20:40:40 for the Engineering and Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy discipline; 30:40:30 for Health Sciences, and 30:35:35 for Hospitability and Tourism. The weights of the criteria and the indicators also varies between disciplines. The justifications for the varying weighting system in domains, criteria and indicators are due to the specific needs of the disciplines and explained in the respective report.

    Data for the various indicators are collected from various sources, which include Institutional Data (through self-assessment with documentary evidence), Employer Surveys, Tracer Study and also accreditation data. Various steps have been taken to ensure data integrity from each of the sources.

    The instrument was verified by a pilot study on ten selected HEIs for the disciplines. For the purpose of

    I was planning to study at a “famous” university but EduSpiral provided facts & evidence that First City UC had won many awards compared to my “famous” university.

    data collection, a template was prepared for the HEIs. Data submitted by the HEIs are compiled and then verified by the sub-committees. Subsequently, data analysis were undertaken which ultimately results in the tiering of HEIs in each discipline. Verification of the exercise was done through a Verification Committee appointed by the MQA. Two verification meetings were carried out on 15 May 2012 and 24 November 2012. The verification exercises cover the process of instrument development; process of data collection, entry and analysis; missing data analysis and treatment; and the results.

    The results show that for Engineering discipline, out of the 25 universities and university colleges rated, 11 institutions achieved a Tier 5 category, 13 institutions achieved Tier 4, and the remaining one, achieved Tier 3.

    For Health Sciences discipline, out of the 14 universities and university colleges rated, five institutions

    achieved a Tier 5 category, six institutions achieved Tier 4, and two institutions are in Tier 3. One institution was not rated because of insufficient data.

    As for the Hospitality and Tourism discipline, the result shows that out of the seven universities and university colleges rated, one institution achieved the Tier 6 (Outstanding) category, three institutions in Tier 5 and one institution each in Tier 4 and Tier 3. One institution in this discipline was not rated because of insufficient data.

    For Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy discipline, out of the 15 universities and university colleges rated, only one institution achieved Tier 5 category, 11 institutions in Tier 4, and two institutions in Tier 3. One institution was not rated because of insufficient data. In all the ratings, the results show that none of the universities and university colleges is in Tier 1 or Tier 2.

    How to Choose the Best Private University to Study in Malaysia

    I contacted EduSpiral to find out which UK branch university campus would be best for my son. EduSpiral advised me on WhatsApp & Phone calls providing facts & evidence on the university rankings & course details. He arranged for us to visit the campus as we were from Johor. (Mrs. Mah)
    Chee Yuan, Chemical Engineering at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia

    The best private universities and colleges in Malaysia have excellent facilities, years of experience running the programme, strong student support services, internships and experienced lecturers.

    They are also accredited by MQA and approved by the Malaysian Ministry of Education. Accreditation by the various professional bodies such as the Board of Engineers Malaysia, Pharmacy Board, Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia, Nursing Board, Malaysian Medical Council, etc also indicates the standard achieved.

    The best private university in Malaysia will focus on quality, have award winners for the particular courses, years of experience offering the particular course, highly experienced lecturers, a good study environment (not a party university), internships, good mix of international & local students, extra-curricular activities and good facilities. The SETARA ranking is a guide for students to assess the quality of a private university in Malaysia.

    After I finished my SPM, I felt confused about my further study. Eduspiral, was so patient to answer all my questions and took us around for a campus tour.
    Hui Ying, Diploma in Accounting at Asia Pacific University

    When choosing a university and college in Malaysia, it is important for students to visit the campus and see the facilities and feel the culture of the students to see if it fits you. Talk to the lecturers and find out from the counselors there about the courses and check if the courses have been accredited by MQA and other external bodies like the Pharmacy Board, Nursing Board, Malaysian Medical Council, Board of Engineers Malaysia , Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia or Persatuan Arkitek Malaysia.

    The environment should be one where students speak mostly in English so that you can improve your English and communication skills. If you are weak in English and choose a cheap university where the students speak mainly in Mandarin, it will be difficult for you to improve your English.

    Star newspaper has reported that graduates with good English earn 25% higher salary and get faster promotion. The Ministry of Education reported that there were more than 70,000 public university jobless graduates and one of the main reasons was poor command of the English language.

    Would you rather suffer for 4 years and get a high salary for 60 years of your work life or an easy 4 years and low salary for 60 years? The decisions that you make now, can change your life forever. Remember the best university doesn’t mean it is the best university for you. The best university is one that fits your career goals, your personality and can push you to a higher level of success.

    Common Factors in Choosing the Best Private University in Malaysia to Study

    Here’s a list of common criteria in choosing a top private university in Malaysia:

    Choosing a course to study after SPM is not a science, it is a process

    Students in Malaysia need to talk to the right education counselors so that you get the right information to help you in making this life-changing decision.

    Ask the right Education Counselors in Malaysia to help you. Would you ask a Doctor on how to repair your car? Or would you ask a mechanic for medical advise? Although this sounds ridiculous, but many students do listen to advise from young and inexperienced counselors from universities, colleges or agents’ offices.  Talking to an experienced education advisor in Malaysia would help you to navigate through this confusing time of choosing the best course that fits you.

    Experienced education counselors are able to analyse your interests, personality and exam results

    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. This is very important especially for Civil Engineers who needs to become a Professional Engineer in order to sign the blueprints.

    If you study at a university that is not accredited by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM), you cannot practice as a Civil Engineer.

    Increase in Job Demand for Civil Engineers in Malaysia & Globally

    The recent surge in infrastructure spend by the Malaysian government can be seen as a product of the ripple effect across the region. The Klang Valley MY Rapid Transit (MRT) railway network around Kuala Lumpur, which will cost an estimated RM20bil to RM40bil to complete, will signal the beginning of a new era in transportation in the country.

    This intra-city rail project is expected to not only significantly increase the rail network in the Klang Valley but also integrate the existing rail networks and lighten the traffic congestion in the KL metropolitan area.

    Engineering graduates in Malaysia can look forward to directly benefitting from this massive project. The new three-line transportation backbone is expected to create an estimated 130,000 job opportunities during the period of its construction, and generate gross national income (GNI) of between RM3bil to RM4bil per annum from 2011 to 2020.

    Another RM21bil per annum is expected to be generated throughout the ten-year span, in the form of

    property value appreciation.

    According to investment research firm OSK Research, Malaysia is likely to see its biggest residential property boom in a decade. The boom – which is arguably a side effect of the transportation infrastructure surge in the nation – will be led by medium- to high-end landed properties and is expected

    One of the top engineering nations is the world, Germany has an estimated 1 million engineers for a population of 82 million (engineer:population ratio of 1:82). France has an estimated 800,000 for a population of 60 million (engineer:population ratio of 1:75). At present, the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) has a total register of 52,000 graduate and professional engineers.

    Considering that a large number of engineers in Malaysia are not registered with BEM (around 50%), it is estimated that there are around 80,000 engineers currently in employment, i.e. still registering a very poor engineer:population ratio of 1:312 (assuming a current national population of 25 million).

    Table shows engineer-population ratios for Malaysia and several advanced countries.

    Country Population Estimated number of Engineers Engineer to Population ratio
    Malaysia  25 million 80,000  1:312
    France  60 million 800,000  1:75
    Germany  82 million 1,000,000  1:82
    Canada 30 million 250,000  1:120
    United Kingdom  60 million 425,000  1:141

    Therefore it is important for Malaysia to increase her production of engineers at a very significant rate in

    Geomatic & Concrete Lab for Civil Engineering students at UCSI University

    Geomatic & Concrete Lab for Civil Engineering students at UCSI University

    order to achieve a comparable index with the developed nations. If we were to use the “advanced nation benchmark” the engineer:population ratio of 1:100 would mean that Malaysia would need around 275,000 and 300,000 engineers in 5 and 10 years respectively (assuming population growth at 2% per year).

    It is noted that in the Ninth Malaysia Plan presented by the Prime Minister of Malaysia in March 2006, the government plans to increase engineering student enrolment for public and private universities with the target annual growth rate of 12.2% and 20.8% respectively (Malaysia 2006a). In 2006, an estimated 10,571 students entered first year engineering studies in public and private universities.

    Therefore with the expected growth, the government is projecting that more than 77,000 and 222,000 engineering graduates will be produced altogether from all the Malaysian universities in the next 5 and 10 years respectively.

    If this projection is met, even after accounting for retirements, Malaysia will be able to match engineer : population ratios with those of advanced nations within 10 years

    What does it take to be a civil engineer? In general, engineers need to enjoy the challenge of solving problems. Engineers should be creative, curious, analytical, and detail-oriented. They have to possess an aptitude for math and science.

    Civil engineers usually work as part of a team from a wide range of fields. Therefore, apart from having good technical knowledge and aptitude, people skills are important. A good civil engineer have to demonstrate the ability to work with other people, good communication leadership skills. Civil engineers need a wide range of expertise. So if you’re interested in becoming a civil engineer, you should try to get good skills in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM subjects).

    Most civil engineering projects need to be able to stand up to natural forces (like wind and water), and man-made forces (like vehicles, equipment and people). For example, civil engineers:

    • Design roads so they don’t sink into the ground when heavy lorries drive along them
    • Build flats so they don’t fall over when the wind blows
    • Construct tunnels so they don’t flood when it rains

    You need to be able to understand and measure forces and movement, and to calculate the strength of the structures you’re designing. What you learn in maths and science – especially physics – will help you do this.

    The structures that civil engineers design and build are mainly on the ground and have to be supported by

    the soil and rocks underneath them. The strength of the ground varies from place to place, and different rocks and soil have different properties (e.g. how quickly water drains through them). If you don’t want your structure to sink into the mud, you have to know about the various types of ground and design the right kind of foundations for the site. For this reason, studying geography or geology is also good idea.

    As designers and innovators, civil engineers create things that didn’t exist before and do things in ways that haven’t been done before. They try to make our environment as attractive as possible by designing things that are interesting and pleasant to look at. They also make sure that these things blend in well with their surroundings. So if you’re creative and enjoy art and design and technology, these would be good subjects to study too.

    Civil engineers usually work in teams and are often involved in projects in many parts of the world. This means that languages, teamwork and communication skills will also come in useful.

    Civil engineers design things. These might be roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, or water supply and sewage systems. They must consider many factors in their designs, from the costs to making sure the structure will stay intact during bad weather.

    Many civil engineers manage people and projects. A civil engineer may oversee a construction site or be a city engineer. Others

    may work in design, construction, research, and teaching. There are many specialties within civil engineering, such as structural, construction, environment, and transportation.

    Civil engineers usually work in areas where there is lots of manufacturing and businesses. Often they work at construction sites. Sometimes they work in places that are far away from cities. Some are required to travel.

    Civil engineering is arguably the oldest engineering discipline. It deals with the built environment and can be dated to the first time someone placed a roof over his or her head or laid a tree trunk across a river to make it easier to get across.

    The built environment encompasses much of what defines modern civilization. Buildings and bridges are often the first constructions that come to mind, as they are the most conspicuous creations of structural engineering, one of civil engineering’s major sub-disciplines.

    Roads, railroads, subway systems, and airports are designed by transportation engineers, another category of civil engineering.

    The diversity within civil engineering creates a wide choice of careers for its graduates. Most civil engineers work for consulting firms, manufacturers or government agencies. Many civil engineers manage people and projects. A civil engineer may oversee a construction site or be a city engineer. Others may work in design, construction, research, and teaching. There are many specialties within civil engineering, such as:

    • structural
    • construction
    • environment
