Course Description

Electrical and electronic engineering play a significant role in modern society. From the electricity that powers our lives to the mobile phones that enable communication and provide entertainment, the technologies around us inspire wonder. Highly trained engineers are needed to specify and design such systems and devise electronic engineering solutions for future challenges – such as electric transportation, renewable energy generation, robot systems and medical diagnostics. A Bachelor of Engineering degree can provide access to exciting global opportunities.

MEng Electrical Engineering

BEng students who meet the progression requirements for the MEng programme may transfer programmes at the end of the second year.



Programme content

First Year

  • Circuits and Analysis
  • Digital design and programming

Third Year

The BEng and MEng programmes differ in year 3:
- BEng students do core individual projects plus three optional courses in semester 1 and two in semester 2.

- MEng students do core group projects plus two optional courses in each semester.

- MEng students undertake a compulsory industrial training placement.

  • MEng Group Project 1
  • MEng Professional and Industrial Studies
  • BEng Project 1
  • plus optional courses in semester 1
  • BEng Project 2
  • MEng Group Project 2
  • plus optional courses in semester 2
  • Industrial Training

Fourth Year


Project placement or research plus four optional courses in semester 2.



It is intended that accreditation by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) will be sought in 2019, when the first cohort of MEng students will have graduated. If the degree programmes meet IET accreditation criteria then the qualifications will be accredited at either Bachelor or Masters level to include all cohort entry dates so far. For further information please contact the School.

Our degrees are offered as 3 year BEng (Bachelor of Engineering) or 4 year MEng (Master of Engineering) qualifications. Our MEng qualification is designed to satisfy the academic requirements set by the Engineering Council UK for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Chartered Engineers enjoy excellent prospects, enhanced employability and high salaries. If you prefer to graduate with a BEng after 3 years of study your degree will provide partial fulfilment of the necessary academic requirements for Chartered Engineer Status.

Entry Requirements
  • Heriot-Watt University Malaysia Foundation in Science: CCCC
  • A-Level:BBC
  • Diploma or any other relevant qualification recognised by the Malaysian Government.
  • The subjects studied must include Mathematics and Physics.
