Bachelor of Electronics Engineering with Honours offered by School of Electrical Engineering is accredited and recognized by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM). Graduates from the Bachelor of Electronics Engineering with Honours may apply to to register with the Board of Engineers Malaysia, as graduate engineer in the engineering field as shown in table below.

The Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs) are statements that describe the expected graduates’ achievements after a few years of graduation. Table 1 shows the educational objectives for the programmes offered by School of Electrical Engineering and its targets of achievement.

Table 1: Programme educational objectives and the targets

Graduates of the programme are able to:
(measured at least five years after graduation)
PEO1 Become Electronic Engineers who are competent, innovative, and productive in addressing customer needs. 60% of graduates work as engineers
10% of graduates work as senior engineer
PEO2 Grow professionally with proficient soft skills. 5% of graduates pursued post-graduate studies or enrolled in self-improvement or skill-based workshops (or equivalent)
1% of graduates become Professional Engineers or attain equivalent professional qualification
PEO3 Demonstrate high standards of ethical conduct, positive attitude, and societal responsibilities. 10% of graduates are involved in services to community


The School of Electrical Engineering has set a five (5) year period after graduation for the assessment of PEO achievement. Alumni Survey and Employer Survey are two indirect assessments that have been used to measure the achievement of PEOs. The Employer Survey is meant to obtain feedbacks from the industries on performance of our alumni with respect to the PEOs whereas Alumni Survey is meant to get info about the alumni’s professional development.

Electronic, telecommunication and ICT industry has been identified as one of the potential industrial area for further development in the future. Currently, there is a huge demand for electronic engineer hence the prospect of work for graduates completing Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical-Electronics) are potentially high especially with Revolutionary Industry 4.0 where the industries emphasis on cyber-physical system. Besides electronic and telecommunication companies, there are other info-technology-related firms requiring electronic engineering graduates.

Career opportunities for graduates can be found in the following areas:

  • Consumer electronic: Manufacturing of products such as TV, radio, DVD/CD/cassette players, cameras, handphones, printers etc.
  • Electronic component: Manufacturing of integrated /discrete circuit and failure assessment/analysis.
  • Telecommunication system: Development and manufacturing of telecommunication system products.
  • Computer products, network systems and information security: Manufacturing of computer and network systems and related equipment.
  • Research and Development: Local organizations, as well as multinational companies that have a research centre would require research engineers.
  • Secondary industry: Industries such as oil refinery, textiles, and food processing where their products depend on electronic systems.
