Ask About This Programme


Electronics engineers manage smaller electronic circuits and work in areas closely related to computers and other modern technologies. This course aims to provide you essential coverage of electronics engineering and its key applications, with a focus on developing the practical expertise necessary for the professional world.

Is this programme for me?

If you enjoy mathematics and science, are fascinated by energy and electronic gadgets, and want to design and invent things that benefit society, you can consider electronic engineering as your career.

What will I learn?

This course will equip you with fundamental principles and advanced concepts of electronic engineering. You will gain hands-on practical experience in designing and constructing electronic systems using computer simulation and practical laboratory work.

The Department also has excellent links with the electronics industry; for example SyMMiD Corporation Sdn Bhd, which supplies integrated circuit design services. The company develops and supplies customer exclusive ASIC solutions for the automotive, industrial and consumer market.

Course topics include:

  • Engineering mathematics
  • Circuit theory
  • Electronic devices
  • Digital electronics
  • Microprocessor
  • Control system engineering

What should I expect?

One of the most valuable skills you would acquire on an electronics course is the ability to solve problems. This may be developed through project work or from an analysis of the technical knowledge inherent in the course. Your course will encourage you to think logically, collect relevant data and make decisions. Also valued by employers are the high levels of numeracy and computer literacy. The ability to work successfully in a team is also important. 

Who will employ me?

Typical employers of electronics engineers

  • Telecommunications providers – mobile phone operators, satellite companies
  • Manufacturers and providers of PCs, tablets and ATM machines
  • Scientific research – acoustics, optics, physics and nanotechnology
  • Medical device and medical instrument manufacturers
  • Aviation and aerospace companies
  • The manufacturing sector

Jobs where your degree would be useful include:

  • Electrical Engineer
  • Electronics Engineer
  • Control Systems Engineer
  • Digital Hardware Engineer
  • Microelectronics Engineer
  • Product Engineer
  • Telecommunication Engineer
  • Test Development Engineer
  • Wireless Network Engineer

How much will I make?

The average salary for a fresh graduate in this field can be from RM2,200 to RM3,500. But of course, your salary will also depend on the company that you work for.

Are there any professional recognition for this programme?

Yes. This programme is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC). EAC is a delegated body by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) as the only recognized accrediting body for engineering degree programmes offered in Malaysia.

These degree programmes are also internationally recognised under the Washington Accord, a multi-national agreement which recognises the substantial equivalency of engineering degree programmes accredited by the responsible bodies in each of the current signatory countries.

As a Washington Accord signatory, Malaysia’s degrees that have been accredited by EAC will be accepted by other Washington Accord signatories. This means that students who study in universities with engineering degrees that are accredited by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and BEM may find work in other countries that have signed the Washington Accord.

How does the professional recognition for this programme benefit me?

Recognition under the Washington Accord allows graduates to be recognised worldwide for career opportunities or for further education progression.

After graduation, an engineer needs to register with the Board of Engineers Malaysia to be a graduate engineer. After a few years of practical experience (supervised by a professional engineer), the graduate engineer can apply to sit for Professional Interview (with IEM). If he/she passes the Interview, he/she can apply to BEM to be a Professional Engineer that entitles him/her to use the title Ir.
