Bachelor of Electrical Power Engineering (Hons)

The curricula for this undergraduate programme require a strong foundation in mathematics, physics and computer. Courses in electrical and electronics engineering begin in the first year after foundation programme. The courses include topics such as electrical circuit analysis, electronics, digital system, microprocessor, electromagnetic fields, electrical machines and drives, power systems, power electronics and high voltage technology. Laboratory sessions reinforce the principles learnt in the classroom, which include electrical measurement techniques, application of non-linear devices, digital logic design, signal processing, microprocessor, electrical machines and power electronics. Many engineering courses are classified as design courses and complemented by computer aided engineering software as simulation and design tools.

During the final year, you may choose technical electives according to your area of interest. The final year project courses provide opportunities for you to apply the engineering principles, experience of current technology as well as learning the methodology of research. Throughout the course of your study, you will also take up languages and courses from other departments, and get involved in a variety of clubs and societies in a holistic approach to become well-rounded graduates.

The programme is designed to prepare you to become professional engineers and industry leaders. You could carve a career in a diverse range of areas in industries such as electricity supply, petroleum, automotive, chemicals, processing, aerospace and many others. Electrical Power engineers are engaged in a variety of activities including design, manufacturing, research, development, testing, construction, operation, sales, management, consulting and teaching.

148 credit hours of subjects are being taught in 8 semesters.
