Bachelor of Engineering (Hons.) Electrical new-icon

Faculty of Engineering (FOE)

(R2/522/6/0038) 06/26 (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. With the recent paradigm shift towards renewable and sustainable energy, the prospect for electrical engineers is even brighter. Additionally, electrical engineers are also responsible for the design of smart grids, battery management systems, 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 system analysis and high voltage engineering. In the final year, the students can specialize in either electric vehicle engineering or energy management. Besides that, students are also equipped with knowledge on Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), cybersecurity, robotics and automation, economics, accounting, management, law, and workplace communication. These skills are developed through a holistic combination of various forms of learning activities.
