My warmest congratulations on your success in gaining admission to our Engineering programmes at the Faculty of Engineering (FOE), MMU. Engineering is the application of mathematics and science, with the objective of providing solutions to complex problems for the benefit of mankind. Hence, each of our programmes focuses on niche specialisations to cater to high-level specialist manpower needs for Malaysia and the global economy.
All our programmes are fully accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) of Malaysia. As Malaysia is one of the signatories of Washington Accord – an agreement between the bodies responsible for accrediting professional engineering degree programs in each of the signatory countries, the degrees you obtain at FOE are recognised globally. Throughout our broad-based engineering programme, students are expected to participate actively in laboratory experiments, engineering design and research projects such as capstone project, industrial internships and a final year project. Our aim is to produce graduates who are equipped with technical as well as non-technical skills and attributes, which will prepare you for management positions and hone a technopreneurship spirit to start new companies.
We hope that you will find our programmes exciting and challenging, and gain the knowledge and skills you are seeking. For our international students, we hope that you will find a second home here and gain valuable friends and networks.
The demands of the programme coursework require that you stay focused at all times. From our experience, those who invest full concentration on their studies have no problem in fulfilling their graduation requirements.
While we expect you to work hard, you are encouraged to play hard too. Your university life will only be complete if you engage yourself passionately during your time at MMU. This includes forging new friendships, networking amongst students, academic staff members, technicians, administrative personnel and others. Give yourself time off to enjoy the beautiful sprawling campus environment and participate in various student societies, cultural, sports and other activities which impart invaluable leadership and life skills imperative in the working world. Ultimately, we love to see your growing maturity by learning about exercising your personal choices, weighing priorities and evaluating your abilities so that you will graduate with fond memories of your time at MMU and bright hopes for your future career.
Wishing you every success in your academic journey with us.
