​​​​​​​​​​Introduction

Electrical & Electronic Engineering have always been one of the important engineering disciplines within the engineering society. Electrical & Electronic Engineering contribution are not limited to areas with applications such as telecommunications, computer systems, and power engineering but also extended into areas of applications such as in manufacturing, medicine, information technology and many more. Unlike other engineering disciplines, Electrical & Electronic Engineering is very dynamics and sensitive to technological advancement in the world. In fact, most of technological revolution starts from Electrical and Electronics.

Electrical & Electronic engineers are involved in the design and development of modern high technology applications, such as, automation for electromechanical systems, computer systems, embedded systems, or electronic control systems applied in process plants, automotive industry, aerospace, and even maintenance. In other words, Electrical & Electronic engineers are in high demand in various fields. Graduates in this Electrical & Electronic Engineering are highly sought after by potential employers.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Electrical & Electronics programme at Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS emphasises on a strong foundation in physics, mathematics, and chemistry, followed by a thorough coverage of basic electrical and electronic engineering courses such as circuit theory, analogue electronics, digital electronics, microprocessor, and signal & systems. At higher levels, students are exposed to data and computer networking, digital signal processing, VLSI design, control theory, communication systems, and power electronics. In the final year, students have the opportunity to major in one of these selected areas of their interest:
  • Computer and Communication
  • Instrumentation and Control
  • ​Power Systems Engineering
  • Electronics & Devices
