Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Hons) in Electrical & Electronic

Programme Overview

The Programme aims to equip students with various skills necessary to adapt to new scientific knowledge of new products. Technical elective subjects are offered in the senior year to provide some degree of specialization (in high voltage engineering, automation and robotics, marine electrical and electronics), but all graduates receive a well-rounded basic education in electrical and electronic design principles.

Engineering Technology is a profession in which knowledge of mathematics and natural science is devoted primarily to the implementation and extension of existing technology for the benefits of humanity.  This profession deals with the same topics as engineering, but the knowledge is more applied, as opposed to purely theoretical knowledge.  They are most likely to get a ‘hands-on’ laboratory, testing, construction, or in the field job.  The level of maths and science required in Engineering Technology is not theoretical as that required in engineering.  Instead, it is more focused on applications. This programme has obtained full accreditation from the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA). Click here to view the accreditation.
