Bachelor of Engineering (Hons.) (Electrical)

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

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

Students will undertake fundamental engineering courses such as Mathematics, Computing, Electronics and Circuit Theory before progressing to core electrical courses such as Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution, Renewable Energy, and Energy Conversion. Students will also be equipped with valuable knowledge on Economics, Accounting, Management, Law and Workplace Communication. These subjects are delivered through combined classroom and laboratory work.

Approved by Ministry of Education (MoE) & Accredited by Engineering Accreditation Council
