The School of Engineering continues to grow rapidly, particularly in the delivery of undergraduate programs, and through the expansion of its facilities and infrastructure. In addressing global engineering challenges of the 21st century, the expansion of research activities in our Malaysian campus is of high priority for the University, reflected by the significant increase of school collaborative partnership with the industry sector, and through the offering of the Higher Degrees by Research, the Master of Engineering Science (Research) and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). The School currently has close to 1,500 undergraduate students, consisting of approximately 70 academic staff, and 42 professional and technical support staff.
The School offers the 4-year Bachelor degree in 6 disciplines: Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering and Software Engineering. These are the 6 core disciplines of Engineering, driven by the strong and growing demand for capable graduates in Malaysia, the Asian region and beyond.
In line with the School Development Plan and to meet the thriving market demand, the school has recently started to offer the Master of Advanced Engineering (Energy and Sustainability), a 1-year Master by coursework program.
