(R/522/6/0038) 06/19 (MQA/FA4863)

The B.Eng. (Hons.) Electrical programme is a four-year engineering course that prepares students with a broad foundation in a discipline that deals with the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity. Additionally, electrical engineers are also responsible for the design of related devices such as transformers, generators, power electronics and electric motors.

Students undertake fundamental engineering subjects such as mathematics, computing, electronics and circuit theory before progressing to core electrical subjects such as power generation, transmission and distribution, renewable energy, and energy conversion. Besides that, students are also equipped with knowledge on economics, accounting, management, law, and workplace communication. These subjects are delivered through combined classroom and laboratory work.
