Electrical and Electronics Engineering



Electrical & Electronics Engineering (EE) has always been one of the important engineering disciplines within the engineering society. EE contributions are not limited to areas such as telecommunications, computer systems, and power engineering but are also extended into areas of applications such as manufacturing, information technology, and many more. Unlike other engineering disciplines, EE is very dynamic and sensitive to technological advancement in the world. In fact, most technological revolutions start from Electrical and Electronics Engineering.

Electrical & Electronics 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, renewable energy, automotive industry, aerospace, and even maintenance. In other words, Electrical & Electronics engineers are in high demand in various fields. Graduates in this EE are highly sought after by potential employers.

The Bachelor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering with Honours programme at Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS emphasises a strong foundation in physics, mathematics, and chemistry, followed by a thorough coverage of basic electrical and electronics engineering courses such as circuittheory, analogue electronics, digital electronics, microprocessor, and signals & systems. At higher levels, students are exposed to data and computer networking, digital signal processing, electrical machines, power systems, control systems, communication systems, instrumentation, and power electronics. In the final year, students have the opportunity to major in one of these areas of interest:

  • Computer and Communication
  • Instrumentation and Control
  • Power Systems Engineering
  • Electronics & Devices

Programme Educational Objectives

    1. Engineers who are competent with the potential to become leaders in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and related industries.
    2. Engineers who are involved towards sustainable development in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and related industries for the betterment of the society.

Programme Outcomes

To produce graduates with the following outcomes:

    1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.
    2. Identify, formulate, conduct research literature and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
    3. Design solutions for complex engineering problems using research-based knowledge and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
    4. Conduct investigation of complex engineering problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
    5. Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations.
    6. Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solutions to complex engineering problems.
    7. Understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of professional engineering work in the solutions of complex engineering problems in societal and environmental contexts.
    8. Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
    9. Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multidisciplinary settings.
    10. Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
    11. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and economic decision making and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
    12. Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
