In this semester, students will be introduced to preparatory modules which would be essential for them to embark on their journey in the completion of their diploma. Students will be taught English for writing, reading and speaking together with basic Mathematics, Mechanics, and Computing. Students are also required to take one General Studies module as required by the Malaysian Qualification Agency.
- English for Academic Purpose
- Engineering Mechanics
- Foundation of Engineering Mathematics
- Practical IT Skills
- General Studies module
Continuation from semester 1; students study Mathematics in more depth and are exposed to professional communication and business to prepare them with skills essential to prepare them in the working world.
- Professional Communications
- Business Environment
- Engineering Mathematics 1
In semester 3, students will continue studying Mathematics. They would also learn to construct simple logic circuits and to apply concepts of the magnetic and electrical field. In addition to these, they would be also learning about atomic structure, properties, and failures of materials such as polymers and metal alloy.
- Engineering Materials
- Engineering Mathematics 2
- Electrical and Electronic Principle
From semester 4 onwards, students are introduced to core engineering modules. They would be learning on calculating currents and voltages in circuits using Kirchoff’s Law, network theorems and nodal and mesh analysis. They also learn about various types of instruments used for engineering measurements and has the opportunity to use them; preparing themselves with sufficient knowledge on lab equipment before they experience more labs in coming semesters. Students are also exposed to computer-based 3D modeling, Boolean Algebra, Karnaugh map and construction of digital arithmetic circuits.
- Analysis of Circuits
- Instrumentation and Measurements
- Design Principles
- Digital Electronics
In today’s workplace, employers are looking for individuals who possess the ability to anticipate and exceed their customer’s needs and deliver quality service as well as technical skills. The Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme provides the balance required to achieve this.
The career prospects for holders of the Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering include working as technicians or engineering assistants. Your career could be in industries using low power applications including radio and television, computers, and telephones to high power plant construction and design, or working in manufacturing industries including aerospace, electrical equipment, personal electronics, computer electronics, medical electronics and telecommunication equipment. There is also great demand in the marketing and sales areas of technical products where you could be employed as Sales Engineers doing marketing and sales of technical products. At the same time, you can work as an Assistant Engineer. At this level, you conduct standardized tests, prepare data for reports, and perform other routine engineering tasks.
