There are three graduate degree programmes offered by the Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme area.
- Master of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (by coursework)
- Master of Science by Research
- Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
Graduate Degree by Coursework
The aim of the Master of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering [E204–Full time] & [E208–Part time] programmes are to prepare students to work in the public and private sectors as well as pursuing further studies as a researcher. It also aims to provide continuing professional development opportunities related to the electrical and electronic engineering. In addition to the knowledge and understanding of electrical and electronic engineering, the programme will provide an integrated understanding of power systems, communications systems, and leadership with inter-personal skills.
Applicants for admission to MSc programme must satisfy the following minimum entry requirements:
- At least a second class bachelor’s degree, or equivalent, recognised by UTB.
- At least a credit or equivalent in English Language GCE O-level or an IELTS score of 6.0 or a TOEFL minimum overall score of 550 or its equivalent.
