The Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme prepares you for careers in the Electrical, Electronics, Telecommunication, and Manufacturing environments. This programme offers a broad-based study in the areas of electrical and electronic engineering.
What you will study
The modules offered in Part 1 of the Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme will enable you to understand the electrical and electronic engineering fundamentals starting with the science of elementary particles called electrons. You will be able to apply theories and principles of science and mathematics to solve practical technical problems with basic knowledge and skills of the electrical elements, components and devices to construct simple electrical and electronic circuits. There are also modules that provide study skills as well as business and communication and information technology skills.
*In addition to the above, all students are also required to successfully complete General Studies modules as stipulated by the Malaysian Qualification Agency, as well as fulfill credit requirements for Co-curricular activities.
The modules provided in Part 2 of the Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme provide you with knowledge of electrical components, instruments and devices operation and behaviour such as electric and magnetic fields, analogue and digital electronics, machines and control, communication engineering, microprocessor and programming technology. This makes your job opportunities much wider.
Upon successful completion of this programme, you will be eligible to progress into any of the following engineering degree programmes offered at APU:
In today’s workplace, employers are looking for individuals who possess the ability to anticipate and exceed their customer’s needs and deliver quality service as well as technical skills. The Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme provides the balance required to achieve this.
The career prospects for holders of the Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering include working as technicians or engineering assistants. Your career could be in industries using low power applications including radio and television, computers and telephones to high power plant construction and design, or working in manufacturing industries including aerospace, electrical equipment, personal electronics, computer electronics, medical electronics and telecommunication equipment. There is also great demand in the marketing and sales areas of technical products where you could be employed as Sales Engineers doing marketing and sales of technical products. At the same time you can work as an Assistant Engineer. At this level, you conduct standardised tests, prepare data for reports, and perform other routine engineering tasks.
