Electrical and Electronic Engineering Programme Area (Degree)

Introduction

In line with the ethos, vision and mission of Universiti Teknologi Brunei [UTB] and the philosophy of MIB, all degree programmes offered by UTB aim to provide students with the skills and knowledge which will enable them to make practical and valuable contributions to national development. The programmes are designed so that graduates will be equipped to cope with the challenges of a rapidly changing work environment.

Teaching and learning are based on a balanced combination of knowledge acquisition, hands-on practice and work experience. In addition, students will be able to develop the skills necessary to become effective technopreneurs and innovators and to respond to the changing environmental and socioeconomic needs of the nation.

 
Courses

  • Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Electrical and Communication Engineering (FEGECE)
  • Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (FEGEEE)
  • Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Mechatronics Engineering (FEGMTE)

 
Aims and Objectives

The aims of the programme are to:

  • Provide student with opportunities to gain a thorough basic knowledge of current practice in the areas of Electrical, Electronic Communication and Computer Engineering and to acquire specialised knowledge in areas relevant to the Engineering community of Brunei Darussalam.
  • Develop in students an understanding of the fundamental principles of Engineering which will enable them to respond positively to the demands reated by future changes in technology.
  • Offer students intellectual and social challenges to promote the development of skills and personal qualities essential to the world of work.

 
Careers and Further Studies

Electrical and Electronic Engineering is a profession that uses science, technology, and problem-solving skills to design, construct, and maintain products, services, and information systems. An Electrical and Communication Engineer will have a wide range of job opportunities such as design engineer, project engineer, research engineer, systems and design engineer, software engineer, to name a few.
