Course Description

By taking this course, students will be exposed to the fundamentals of electrical and electronics engineering in the first four semesters of studies. In the fifth (final) semester, students will be equipped with courses from the power engineering discipline such as power utilization, machines and drive as well as power electronic. It is also compulsory that the students complete their final year project which aims to develop their skills and ensure that they not only understand the theory but are also able to practice their knowledge. The energy and power industry plays a vital role towards building a successful nation.
