The complex global challenges of the digital age have yielded developments in various facets of engineering and the world around us, which in turn have opened countless avenues for engineering practice and research. We’re undergoing nothing short of a revolution in our understanding of exciting areas as diverse as Telecommunications, Microelectronics, Nanotechnology, Multimedia, Optical technologies and the dynamics of social media. If you are a prospective engineering student, we want to introduce you to Faculty of Engineering (FOE) and how we can assist you in obtaining a solid foundation at one of the Malaysia’s leading engineering schools with all our engineering undergraduate and postgraduate programmes accredited by Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) and Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA).
The Faculty of Engineering is a welcoming place, where innovation and critical thinking is strongly nurtured. Every student can find a niche and an opportunity for intellectual excitement. Our world-class faculty through teaching, advising, and interactions with students both inside and outside the classroom create an excellent environment for a fulfilling students’ learning experience. Many past students tell me that what they find most exciting about FOE are the experiences which bring about the process of discovery and thinking and how this process gives them a head start in securing jobs and acing interviews. Besides the academic aspect, we have a vibrant Student Engineering Society and professional engineering student chapters such as The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (IEM) as well as ‘Multimedia University Engineering Society Overseas Research Programme'(MESCORP) for students to grow in leadership and soft-skills, as we recognize the growing importance of these human aspects of what engineers do.
In line with the faculty’s vision to be a leading engineering faculty for creation, preservation and dissemination of knowledge, our lecturers/professors/researchers at FOE have never failed to actively engage themselves in the forefront R&D activities for the creation of new knowledge and technology where scientific findings are presented and published in various reputable international conferences, and prestigious journals of international standing. We also pride ourselves in enjoying great support and close research collaborations with some top names in the industries such as Intel, NTT, Nokia, National Semiconductor, Motorola, Matsushita, Ericsson, Agilent, coupled with the constant arrangement of invited lecture series that brings renowned engineers and scholars to FOE from across the world, have helped us to ensure the multi-skilled engineering graduates we produce always stay relevant to the fast changing industry trends and needs. This is demonstrated by our good track record of constantly achieving high graduate employability with a significant number obtaining jobs even before the completion of their studies.
We look forward to welcoming you at FOE and help us help the nation in supplying graduates who are strongly sought after by the industry. Your experience, while academically demanding, will be enjoyable, and your education will prepare you to practice in engineering and open up a vast sea of opportunities in the future.
Lastly, I hope you would take the time to visit our website, and explore and discover what the faculty can offer you and we look forward to sharing this remarkable journey with you.
