Introduction

BriTE@UTB is a four-month programme open to applicants who meet the university’s minimum entry requirement but fall short of points for admission to specific engineering undergraduate programmes. This programme also offers lifelong learners who have been out of study for a period of time, the opportunity to upgrade their fundamental knowledge and skills required to further their study onto an engineering degree programme.

Students who have successfully completed the BriTE@UTB programme will be eligible for admission into the first year of one of the following programmes at UTB:

  • BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering
  • BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering
  • BEng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering
  • BEng (Hons) in Mechatronics Engineering
  • BEng (Hons) in Chemical Engineering

Entry Requirement

BriTE@UTB is open to applicants who meet the university’s minimum entry requirement:

  1. At least a Credit Six in Mathematics at GCE ‘O’ Level or its equivalent
    AND
  2. At least a Credit Six in English Language at GCE ‘O’ Level or an IELTS score of 6.0 or TOEFL minimum overall score 550 or its equivalent

And one of the following:

For entry into BEng programmes  inMechanical, Civil, Mechatronics and Chemical Engineering :

200 A-level points in three subjects including: Mathematics, Physics and any other relevant Science subject (Chemistry, Further Mathematics, Biology, Computer Science, Design and Technology)

OR

An International Baccalaureate score of 24 points at higher level subjects including Mathematics and Physics and other relevant science subjects (Computer Science, Chemistry, Design Technology)

OR

Lifelong learners who wish to be admitted as a mature candidate must be at least 21 years of age, passed at least one GCE A-Level or equivalent, in a subject relevant to the programme OR obtained a relevant Level 4 Diploma or Higher National Technical Education Certificate (HNTec) or equivalent AND with at least three years relevant working experience in related fields.

For entry into Electrical and Electronics Engineering Bachelor programme:

180 points with 3A level – minimum D in both Physics and Mathematics, and minimum D in any other relevant science subject (Chemistry, Biology and Further Mathematics).

OR

160 A-level points in two subjects, with minimum C grades in both Mathematics and Physics

OR

An International Baccalaureate score of 24 points at higher level subjects including Mathematics and Physics and other relevant science subjects (Computer Science, Chemistry, Design Technology)

OR

Lifelong learners who wish to be admitted as a mature candidate must be at least 21 years of age, passed at least one GCE A-Level or equivalent, in a subject relevant to the programme OR obtained a relevant Level 4 Diploma or Higher National Technical Education Certificate (HNTec) or equivalent AND with at least three years relevant working experience in related fields.

The following are used for calculation of ‘A’ level points:

Note: Enrolment into BriTE@UTB is restricted to Brunei citizens, permanent residents and valid Brunei IC holders only.

Programme Structure for BriTE@UTB

BriTE@UTB commences each March and comprises of two 7-weeks period of study, ending with the examination period at the end of June.

Three core modules are offered: Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. These are taught through lectures, tutorials and practicals. Students with sufficient A-Level grade as required for admission to the undergraduate degree may be exempted from taking the relevant module.

e.g. BEng (Hons) in Mechatronic Engineering programme entry requirement is a minimum of 220 A-Level points for 3 A-Level passes in both Mathematics and Physics at Grade C or higher, and a Science subject (Design and Technology/ Chemistry/Further Mathematics/Computing). An applicant who has already obtained a Grade C in Physics may then be exempted from taking the Physics module in BriTE.

Students on BriTE will therefore take a minimum of one module and a maximum of three modules. In addition, students will also learn Introduction to Engineering and Workshop skills. This is a value-added module for which students are not required to take an examination.

Programme Fee
 
Registration FeeBND120
Tuition FeeBND500 per core module

e.g.

For a student who registers in 1 core module, payment would be BND120 (registration fee) + BND500 (fee for 1 core module) = BND620

For a student who registers in 3 core modules, payment would be BND120 (registration fee) + BND1500 (fee for 3 core modules) = BND1,620

Eligibility for admission into UTB Engineering Degree Programme

Students who obtain at least 60% mark per enrolled core module will be eligible for admission into the first year of the relevant engineering degree programme at UTB.
