Course Description

Research and development is an extremely important element in FET’s continuing pursuit for excellence. The process of discovering new founded knowledge and communicating the new findings to academia has become an integral part of the learning community. A number of research areas have been identified as focus areas that are deemed important to MMU. Our research program equips you with the knowledge and research skills needed to innovate in the area of your interest (i.e. Intelligent Robotics, Remote Sensing, e-Health, Green and Sustainable Engineering, 5G, Machine Vision, Intelligent Systems, IoT and many more). These are the critical technologies that are the foundation for many products and services. This programme assures you an opportunity of extensive training in research under supervision so that you are capable of working innovatively in your selected major.
