Electrical and Electronic Engineering BEng / MEng (Hons)

University of Nottingham Malaysia
Semenyih, Selangor
What is electrical and electronic engineering?
Electrical and electronic engineering continues to transform the way we live – from the latest consumer products through to sophisticated scientific and industrial technologies. It can form a platform for many different disciplines ranging from renewable energy to nanotechnology and provide you with a thorough grounding in both academic and practical aspects.

Our programmes enable you to specialise in a particular branch of the subject dependent upon your interests and talents. One of these branches, mechatronic engineering, is a professional discipline that encompasses electrical, electronic and mechanical engineering with intelligent embedded control. Mechatronic engineers explore and utilise new technologies in automation and robotics to allow tasks in hazardous environments or precise positioning to be accomplished for the benefits of health, safety, society and economy.

How will I study?
Our BEng or MEng option will provide you with the same core skills, however, the MEng will offer added advantage in terms of a more substantial project with greater opportunity for specialisation and experience of research methods. We strongly recommend the MEng route if you wish to pursue an engineering career. Lectures, practical laboratory sessions and project work are supplemented by problemsolving workshops and tutorials. Additionally you will undertake independent work and complete necessary reading in preparation for writing reports and laboratory experiments. You will be assessed through a range of methods including coursework, dissertation and oral presentations, as well as tests and examinations.

Industrial training
Industrial training is compulsory if you pursue the MEng degree curriculum. You will be expected to participate in industrial training during the summer vacation after the second year of study, although participation in other years or multiple-participation is also allowed. All industrial training must last at least 12 consecutive weeks in the same company or institution. If you pursue the BEng degree you are not required to participate but will be strongly encouraged to do so. Industrial training also provides a great way

Professional accreditation
All of our BEng and MEng undergraduate programmes are fully accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). Our MEng programmes are also currently accredited by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).

Career prospects
Electrical and electronic engineering continue to be buoyant industries. Many of our graduates pursue engineering careers in a range of industries such as devices and systems design and development, electrical and electronic design, electrical and electronic equipment, manufacturing, systems design and fabrication, power plants and transmission. Others enter the management and commerce sector or software and IT. Some also choose to continue their studies with further education.
