Why Engineering

Be at the forefront of the engineering world.

In the modern world we live in, it is easy to see how complexities give rise to challenges, day by day. It is also remarkable to see how engineering marvels are created as solution to those challenges. Engineers create the reality we live in today, by addressing complex technical problems and enhancing our quality of life through the advancement of science and technology. Creativity and problemsolving are at the heart of every engineering industry, and with such a pivotal role to play, qualified and skilled engineers are in escalating demand and will remain to be throughout the world.

Engineering programmes at KDU are driven by a design-centric curriculum, training students to hone their complex problemsolving skills. Students are equipped with everything necessary to adapt to rapid changes in the engineering field with high ethical and professional standards while demonstrating stellar communication and leadership skills. Not only that, students also gain valuable hands-on experience by participating in real-world projects, and have the opportunity to become a research assistant at an undergraduate level through our undergraduate research programme.

Our programmes adhere to the strict standards set by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM). KDU is also the only university college that has a double specialisation, in its Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic, for BEM registration.
