Introduction

Postgraduate programs in FKE was created in line with the faculty’s motto “Towards Academic Excellence”. FKE is committed to the scholarly excellence and student success. All postgraduate programs in FKE are currently approved by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and recognized by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). We strive to provide education that is of high quality and relevant to the needs of the varied participants on the range of programmes offered for both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Our programme structure is made to cater the needs for future academics, and industrial world. In order to maintain a good programme, we do emphasis on close professional relationships between the faculty and industry. We do provide a world class and well maintained laboratory. It is part of the research investment that has been made to provide an outstanding facility to all students as well as services to small industries outside campus. Our students and staff comes from countries with different ethnic and cultural backgrounds, all working amicably in a conducive teaching and learning environment. This is a global spirit that might help postgraduate programme in FKE reaching to the next level

Modes of Study

 A. Research Mode

           

  

1.Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
           

          

The Doctoral candidate by research is supervised by an academic staff (or a panel of supervisors) from the faculty. The directed research work will focus on a particular subject that introduces candidate to the processes by which new knowledge is developed or/and applied accordingly. The specific topic of investigation will be agreed upon by the supervisor (or panel of supervisors) and the candidate.  Progress report is submitted at the end of each semester. The degree is awarded based on an oral examination (viva-voce) of the thesis submitted by the candidate on completion of the study. 

 

Candidates intending to study by research may submit their application for admission throughout the year.

2.Doctor of Engineering (DEng)
              The Doctor of Engineering (DEng) is a 4 years doctoral level programme combining academic research and scholarship with industrial problem-solving and project management. The programme incorporates the industrial relevant research, team leadership and unique university-industry partnership. The academic degree awarded on the basis of advanced study and research in engineering is equivalent to a PhD degree in engineering/ applied sciences. The candidate will normally be advised by one academic supervisor and one industrial supervisor. The topic for the research will be jointly decided by the faculty and the participating company. It can be a single project, or a series of projects, firmly based on a real industrial problem and having significant challenging and innovative engineering content.

              3.Master Programmes (Research)
              The Master of Science candidate is supervised by an academic staff (or a panel of supervisors) from the faculty. The directed research work will focus on a particular subject that introduces candidates to the processes by which new knowledge is developed or/and applied accordingly. The specific topic of investigation will be agreed upon by the supervisor (or panel of supervisors) and the candidate. The academic progress of a candidate is assessed through a research. Progress Report submitted at the end of each semester. The degree is awarded based on an oral examination (viva-voce) of the thesis submitted by the candidate on completion of the study. Candidates intending to study by research may submit their application for admission throughout the year.

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MEKA)

Electrical engineering forms the fundamental study to the generation, distribution and utilisation of energy efficiently. There will be significant growth in research, development and manufacturing activities in the field of electrical engineering and it constitutes the basis for valuable and worthwhile careers for well-qualified graduates.

               
             

Master of Science in Mechatronics Engineering (MEKM)

The Faculty offers a wide range of laboratories, fully equipped with the latest teaching and learning equipment with the ratio of TWO (2) to THREE (3) students per station. This arrangement will suit the teaching and learning concepts based on problem cantered, action learning and practical application as stipulated in the Practice and Application Oriented approach.

B. Taught Course Mode

              1.Master Programme by Taught Course
              The Master programme by Taught Course (or coursework) is designed to extend the knowledge and skills gained from the first degree and to develop new professional skills of the graduates in the particular area of study. The programme involves lectures, seminars and project work. A minimum of 40 credit hours of taught subjects and a research report and a final Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of at least 3.0 are required for the award of the Master degree. The credit hour which comply with the Malaysia Qualification Agency (MQA), of study comprise a combination of compulsory subjects, electives and a Master’s Project. Assessments are made through take home assignments, tests and final semester examinations. Students’ progress and performance in the Master project is assessed through oral presentations and a written report.

i) Master of Electrical Engineering - MEKG

Master of Electrical Engineering (Taught course) is developed to instil a strong engineering foundation, to produce graduates that are proficient in solving electrical engineering problems. This will ensure the graduates of electrical engineering are able to practice their knowledge in their future career. The intention of this proposed programme are to blend the fundamental elements of advanced electrical and mechatronics with industrial and manufacturing related studies, provide the opportunity for student to specialize in areas related with advanced industrial power, power electronics & drives and control engineering, professional training on research methods and helping student from variety of science and engineering background meet their career ambition with the special aims of “employability in mind”.

               
               

ii) Master of Mechatronics Engineering – MEKH

Master of Mechatronics Engineering (Taught course) is developed to instil a strong engineering foundation, to produce graduates that are proficient in solving mechatronic engineering problems. This will ensure the graduates of mechatronic engineering are able to practice their knowledge in their future career. Master of Mechatronics Engineering programme by taught course with covers courses such as industrial robotics, Internet of Things-related controllers, mechatronics and control systems.

 C. Mixed Mode
              1.Master Programme by Mixed Mode
             

Mixed Mode refers to the combination of taught course and research activities. The assessment depends upon both the coursework and dissertation (research work). The component for the coursework is 50% and the dissertation contributes the other 50%. The Mixed Mode programme develops the research skill of the students on top of enhancing the theoretical knowledge of the subject area.
