2.2.5.2    Degree Requirements

Students in the BEng (Electrical Engineering) programme are required to complete a minimum of 160 MCs with a CAP ≥ 2.0 to graduate.  In the first stage of the programme, students will receive broad-based training which, in addition to establishing a strong foundation in mathematics and computing, will also be immediately exposed to the use of electrical components and equipment in solving fundamental engineering problems in EE. They will also be introduced to the different areas in EE which are driving the technological developments of today.

In the second stage, students will enrol in core modules that focus on fundamental knowledge in EE. These core modules provide the essential foundation for a variety of specialised technical areas in EE. During their senior years of study, students may specialise in certain fields of EE through their selection of elective modules. Throughout their programme, they are also expected to broaden their views by reading some general education modules, Engineering Professionalism and Critical Thinking and Writing Students are strongly encouraged to make good use of the 32 MCs of UEM by taking more technical electives to further explore their engineering interest through EE specialisations, or other interest by taking a minor or second major. The complete programme structure is specified in Table 2.2.5a.
