Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering
The ECE oversees the undergraduate Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical – Electronics) program as well as the taught course postgraduate Master of Engineering (Computer and Microelectronics System) known as MKEH program. Besides these programs, the department also supports Master of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering (MKEE) and PhD in Electrical Engineering (PKEE) research programs.
Besides teaching, members of ECE Department are also involved in research and consultancy activities in areas as follow:
- Carbon nanotubes; graphene semiconductor
- Biomedical instrumentation
- ECG, EEG and EMG signal processing
- Rehabilitation engineering
- Industrial electronics
- Video and image compression
- Audio, speech, image signal processing; real-time DSP
- Embedded system design; FPGA prototype development
- Multimedia network technology; Network-on-Chip
- Modeling and detection of faults for IC testing
- Microprocessor and microcontroller system design
The department has close relationship with many multinational electronic companies, such as Intel, Altera, National Instruments and Motorola. These companies visit UTM campus on regular basis for recruitment exercises, and usually are invited to deliver technical talks to FKE students.
Faculty of Electrical Engineering offers two main modes of study for postgraduate programs, by research and by taught course. The details of the offered degree courses are:
Doctor of Philosophy (PEE):
- Course mode is by research only
- Period of study is between two to six years. Full time or part time registrations are allowed.
- Four major research areas are control engineering, electrical, power engineering, electronics & computer engineering and communications engineering.
- The degree is awarded based on a comprehensive examination (viva voce) of the doctoral thesis.
Master in Electrical Engineering (MKEE):
- Course mode is by research
- Minimum period of study is one year and the normal period is two years.
- Full time or part time registrations are allowed. Four major research areas are control engineering, electrical power engineering, electronics & computer engineering and communications engineering.
- The degree is awarded based on an oral examination (viva voce) of the Master’s thesis.
Master in Electrical Engineering (MKEL, MKEH):
- Course mode is taught course
- Full-time or part-time taught course programmes are offered.
- Also offered in selected centers (KL, Penang, JB).
- The full-time study requires a minimum duration of three semesters, while the part-time programme takes about two years.
- For a Masters degree to be awarded, candidates must complete a minimum of 41 credits and achieve a final academic grade point of at least 3.0 CGPA.
