UK is a world leader in engineering. British engineers have remained at the top of the technological food chain and, in many cases, drive it forward. Naturally, such excellence has created a first-class education system, with engineering qualifications born out of sound scientific and technical know- how. Engineering institutions in the UK are intertwined with industry in a way few other countries can match, conducting research projects worth billions of pounds every year. This research is not limited in any way, with universities engaged in all manner of projects involving aerospace, defense, marine, construction, automotive, nuclear and telecommunications technology.

Such options are available to students on TNE courses in Malaysia. The scope of technical qualifications available here is varied, with courses available in:

• electrical and electronic engineering • mechatronic engineering • civil engineering • mechanical engineering • telecommunications • automotive engineering • manufacturing • engineering management • quality engineering • chemical process engineering • chemical and environmental engineering • communications engineering.

Meanwhile, something that has been evolving in the UK for some time is the level of qualification young people aspire to. Many students now opt for a four-year Master of Engineering (MEng) degree, which has become the benchmark for graduate engineering positions in the UK. Of course, bachelor's degrees (BEng) are still available. Students can choose to begin an MEng course and transfer to the BEng during their first or second year of study if they desire. Similar options are available for students studying TNE courses in Malaysia, where an MEng qualification will really make young hopefuls stand out from the crowd.

Added to which, many courses now offer the chance of industrial placements lasting from a few weeks to a year. This allows undergraduates to put the theory into practice and gain first-hand experience of their future jobs - and receive a salary.

The result is that engineers who have been trained to UK standards are a highly sought-after commodity with a unique skill set, which also make them desirable to other professions - and other nations. The UK engineering honors degree is a truly global qualification.

Institutes of Technology in Malaysia


Malaysia is developing and needs a lot of engineers.

Those who are good in maths and science subjects like physics), inquisitive by nature and a strong interest in invention, engineering is the course to consider.

There are many types of engineering but the basic principle of all engineering disciplines lies in using scientific knowledge to improve quality of life through inventions.


Popular Engineering Courses in Malaysia

Mechanical Engineering

Men are usually fascinates of working with machines and they enjoy this course. The course cover  core subjects like thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics and dynamics. Besides that, student  also study about mechanical behavior of materials, electrical circuits and computer-aided design, computer-controlled systems and mechatronics. The scope of mechanical engineering is very broad.

Telecommunications Engineering

Telecommunication engineering is quite similar to electrical and electronics engineering. It brings together elements of electrical and electronics, and computer engineering. The course will cover typical signals (speech, audio, video, and data) and their characteristics as well as key techniques in handling transmission system issues (modulation, coding, multiplexing). You will also learn to evaluate system performance. You will develop skills in electrical circuits and electronics (analogue and digital), modeling and simulation of systems, applications of electromagnetism, optical fibers and communication, photonics, data networks and satellite communications.

Aeronautical Engineering

Those fascinated by how a large craft become airborne might be interested in this field. Aeronautical engineering is all about making things fly. Plan, design and test aircraft, missiles and spacecraft. You design everything from wings to cockpit controls to create the safest and most efficient vehicles possible.

Qualifications of this course are wider compare to the other courses. Apply for this engineering require a diploma in mechanical engineering or electrical engineering.

Biomedical Engineering

A relatively a new science course that aim to find new ways of tackling medical conditions more effectively and efficiently.

Beside learning engineering aspects, engineer also learn about human anatomy and computational modeling. Biomedical engineers have to define a medical problem and find a solution that satisfies both engineering and medical requirements.

Student learn to design and develop tools to solve problems in medicine and life sciences. The course also integrates theories from various engineering disciplines like mechanical, chemical, computer and materials.

Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering involves the design and operation of processes that turn raw materials like fuel, food and plastics into useful products. Besides chemistry, you’ll be studying a lot of physics and math in the course too! Chemistry studies involve study of changes in the composition and the nature of matter and its properties; while the physics component involves studying the forces that act on matter and the maths component studies the mathematical relationship between matter and its forces.

Graduate will be competent in developing, designing, operating and controlling processes (both machinery and devices). The course also learn about safety and environment issues because chemical engineers are responsible for designs that are economically viable, safe and not harmful to the environment.

Civil and Structural Engineering

This course is concerned about planning and building of infrastructure such as roads, bridges, buildings, reservoirs and transmission towers. The course will teach you about physical and chemical properties of building materials and how they react under pressure or weight. You will analyze structure systems, including beams, frames and steel elements. Civil engineering is broad discipline so you will usually specialize at the end of the course. Some of the specializations that you can choose from are structure, geotechnical, traffic and highway, environmental, and hydrology and water recourse systems. By the way, you must be practical and creative at the same time!

Electrical and Electronic Engineering (E & E)

This is one of the top courses when students are applying for engineering. Electronic engineering is closely related to electrical engineering but while electrical engineering deals more with large-power applications, electronic engineering is concerned with lower-powered electrical systems. An electronic engineering course will give you a thorough understanding of analogue and digital electronics and microprocessor hardware and software. Electrical engineering is concerned with different forms of electrical charge, how they behave and how they can adapted for use. You will study about transformers, complex network functions, electrons, magnetic field and electric fields, and basic electrical measurement devices such as ammeters, voltmeters and oscilloscopes.

Materials Science and Engineering

This specialized course is concerned with study of materials that underpins most of the technology we depend on. In this course, you will learn all types of materials such as ceramics, glasses, metals, polymers, semiconductors and biomaterials. The course will also give you the opportunity to study the behavior of materials under different conditions, analyze the selection of appropriate materials for a given application, and develop new materials and methods to process them into useful objects through research and practical experiments, among other things.

You will need a good IT and analytical skills for this course.
