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 the 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 problem-solving 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 courses at KDU are driven by a design-centric curriculum, training students to hone their complex problem-solving 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 engineering courses 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.
CHOOSE KDU FOR PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING FOR OUR ENGINEERING COURSES
|BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN ACADEMIC AND INDUSTRY||DESIGN-CENTRIC CURRICULUM|
|Hands-on learning and real-world experience are crucial in ensuring our students, as future engineers, stay current and remain relevant when they begin their career. Actively engaging industry experts and exposing students to real-life practices, as well as the development of real-life projects are some of the ways we ensure our students set themselves apart and are more grounded from their exposure to the different challenges faced in the industry.||Engineering courses at KDU emphasize on Design-Centric Curriculum (DCC), with Design Thinking as the grounding principle of teaching and learning. Students are required to engage in design assignments, Capstone projects and Problem-Based Learning (PBL) to develop their skills in design, complex problem-solving, project management, teamwork, lifelong learning and complex communication.|
