Electrical And Electronic Engineering Course In Penang, Malaysia


Electrical and Electronic engineering is at the forefront of developing new technologies for a number of industries including transport, healthcare, construction, and robotics. This engineering discipline is built on the idea of improving systems to help humanity. Smart phones that revolutionized the communication world, sensors and embedded systems that are part of ‘smart homes’ and autonomous cars wouldn’t have been possible without this engineering field.

Electrical and electronics engineers play a vital role in the development of new technologies that drive our modern world. From power generation to transportation to telecommunications, internet, and computers, their demand is everywhere.

In industry 4.0, Electrical and Electronic Engineering would be fundamental in connectivity and communication section, human-machine interaction as well as advanced manufacturing since most smart systems would rely on numerous sensors for real time analysis. This program provides a well-established balance between theory and practical. Graduates of the program can be in a broad area of applications which include industries such as integrated circuit(IC), automotive, aerospace, power plants, telecommunication and many more.

The accreditation of this program is done by Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA) and not Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC). Hence the program are not recognized by Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM). In order to register as Graduate Engineer with BEM, graduates have to top up their study with a master degree by instruction (master by coursework) in the relevant field from accredited universities / institutions.
