Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Faculty Of Electrical Engineering

Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Faculty Of Electrical Engineering,
 

Introduction

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FKE), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, was established in late 1974. Since 1st June 1995, the faculty commences operation at the main campus of the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in Skudai, Johor until today.
The faculty has grown to become one of the centers of academician and electrical engineering experts in Malaysia with 182 academic staff whom are involved in teaching and academic research, and 74 non-academic staff.

Covering broad spectrum of electrical engineering, currently the faculty consists of four departments focusing on advanced researches and instructional courses in specific areas of activities. The four departments are:

    • Department of Communication Engineering (COMM)
    • Department of Control and Mechatronics Engineering (CMED)
    • Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering (ECE)
    • Department of Electrical Power Engineering (POWER)
Besides teaching and learning activities, the faculty is also active in research and development as well as providing consultancy services in the electrical engineering expertise area to government and non-government agencies.
The faculty has strengths in established area of instrumentation and control engineering, electrical power engineering and energy conversion, telecommunication engineering, electronic engineering and computer engineering. These research and development activities have contributed specifically to UTM and indirectly, have helped in improving Malaysia’s position as an industrial country.

 

Undergraduate Programme

There are three types of Undergraduate Programmes offered at Faculty of Electrical Engineering:

Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical) (SKEE)

The Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical) programme, codenamed SKEE, is one of the undergraduate programmes offered by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FKE) to prepare graduates for positions as electrical engineers. The SKEE programme has been designed to emphasise not only on the understanding and acquisition of basic principles and skills in the field of electrical engineering, but also on a wide range of subareas including electronics, control systems, instrumentation, signal processing, telecommunications and power systems.
The curriculum of SKEE consists of core and specialised electrical engineering courses, related general education and supporting non-technical courses. Furthermore, the students’ exposure to engineering practices is integrated throughout the curriculum through the combinations of industrial training and invited lectures from industries.
The SKEE programme also provides the students with the opportunities for developing analytical, critical and constructive thinking skills in addition to communication, team-working and life-long learning skills in order to prepare the students for careers as electrical engineers in industries, public sectors, or continuing education at postgraduate levels.

Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical-Electronic)(SKEL)

A rapid development in electronics, computer and telecommunication industry is one of the major contributors to the Malaysian economy.  Rapid development has enabled the electronic, computer and telecommunication industry to flourish. This means that more and more competent electronic graduates are required, to meet the growing demand of skilled manpower. The requirements towards professionals in this field, is gradually intensifying and it is predicted that the need will be continued in the next few years.
Electronic Engineering is a vast area of studies and is gradually expanding. Graduates undertaking this program will face a demanding professional career ahead. Various courses are being offered within the program with the intention of preparing graduates with sufficient knowledge in electronic field.Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical – Electronics) offered by Faculty of Electrical Engineering is accredited and recognized by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM). Graduates from the Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical – Electronics) may apply to to register with the Board of Engineers Malaysia, as graduate engineer in the engineering field as shown in table below.
 

Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical-Mechatronic) (SKEM)

Mechatronic Engineering is a new engineering field which combine engineering fields such as Electronic, Electric, Mechanical, Control, Software, Computer and Information Technology.
This field has become rapidly increasing and expanding within industries especially in manufacturing industry since the significance of micro processing and micro control is recognized its significance in industrial control.
Furthermore, Mechatronic is the technology behind the smart products, which typically includes microprocessor, control system and mechanical field. An engineer equipped with knowledge, experience and specialization in Mechatronic field is a pre-requisite for any up and running industry.
Mechatronic engineer utilizes the use of computer and digital control system for controlling processes within an industry. They combine electrical science, control, mechanical, robotic and manufacturing to fabricate a wide variety of products. These include everyday household such as washing machine, camera, photocopier machine and car anti locking brake as well as high-tech computer control machines operated in manufacturing and fabrication industries. Regardless of its discipline, an engineer will encounter usage of mechatronic systems at one stage of their working life.
In view of that, this program is offered to equip graduates with a vast knowledge on electronic, microcontrollers, robotic, automation, control engineering, and production engineering areas.  Those whose expertise revolves around these areas, are extremely required by the existing industries.  Graduates who are highly skilled in and capable of narrowing the gap between mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering, will have an immense advantage of employment.
