Diploma in Electrical & Electronic Engineering

Course Duration: 2 Years 6 Months

Based on the Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR4.0), engineering technology, business, and industrial needs, the curriculums are designed to provide students with practical knowledge in the applications of electrical and electronic engineering.

The graduates will be well equipped with the engineering knowledge, problem analysis, investigation, and the design related to the electrical and electronic engineering. The graduates will also be trained in non-technical skills such as communication, teamwork, leadership, etc. to enrich their knowledge. Graduates will have better opportunities of being employed in the technical and non-technical sectors.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)

PEO1: Graduates who are capable in handling engineering issues.
PEO2: Professional graduates who continue upgrading their engineering knowledge.
PEO3: Graduates that execute professional characteristics in terms of engineering practice and ethical conduct, sensitivity in sustainability issues and multi-cultural society.
