MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN, COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING


Welcome to the College of Engineering (COE) and Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN).
COE strives to provide a first class educational experience to its undergraduate students
preparing them for positions in the industry in line with its status as a Tier 5 (Excellent)
engineering education provider (D-SETARA 2011). The college aspires to become the leading
engineering education provider and research leader in the area of energy and sustainability.
COE is the largest college in this university with more than 3400 students and 14% are
international students from 28 different countries.
This handbook has been produced to assist you in planning your studies in UNITEN. It lists
the programmes offered by each department in COE, the courses that you are required to
take, the sample of course distribution, the faculty members and the course descriptions. The
support services and extract of academic regulations are also included.
There are three groups of people whom will help you get the most out your study in COE. The teaching staff will
provide lecture and tutorial support and academic guidance. The technical support staff will help you with your work in
the laboratories. The administrative staff will help you with everything to do with your programme administration.
Each student will be assigned an academic advisor for the duration of their studies. The academic advisor is one of our
lecturers who will advise and guide you on your programme. He/she will help you in choosing the courses to register
for any particular semester and also assist you if you experience any academic problems. Please meet your academic
adviser early in your programme and see them often. I am sure you will find them friendly and helpful.
Our programmes are structured into semesters and are broad-based with a strong emphasis on basic fundamentals.
Towards the end, you have some choice in the areas you would wish to specialize. These specialized technical electives
are courses that are of great demand and need by the industry and the nation at large. These are coupled with strong
emphasis on development of soft skills such as communication, leadership and management, and nurturing humanities
values, to mould you into a well-rounded and competent professional engineer in harmony with holistic societal values.
We would like to produce engineers who are career resilience, i.e. always equip themselves with the latest tools,
technology and skills to be able to adapt and are ever ready to apply them to any work environment.
The college staff works hard to produce a high quality and innovative educational experience for our students. Our
programmes are accredited by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and the bachelor programmes are recognized by
the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC). In order to ensure that all the bachelor programmes offered in COE are
relevant to the industry, Outcome Based Education (OBE) is implemented in all the engineering bachelor programmes.
OBE requires that inputs from all stake-holders are sought in designing and reviewing the programme curriculum and
clear statement of Programme Educational Objectives (PEO) and Programme Outcomes are required. In order to
ensure that the quality of the programmes are continuously improved, a clear Continual Quality Improvement (CQI)
system which requires measurement of achievement of the outcomes while the students are in UNITEN and after they
leave UNITEN, analyze the results and use them to continuously improve the quality of the programme.
All students are encouraged to be involved in out of class activities which will enrich their learning experience. Various
activities are arranged from time to time by either the student societies or the college such as industrial talks, industrial
visits, internal and external engineering related competitions etc. Your involvement in the activities will be given
SCORUN points which will be accumulated until your graduation.
On behalf of the college, I wish you a successful and enjoyable experience as a student in COE. Thank you.
Yours sincerely,

Professor Dr. Mohd. Zamri Yusoff

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING, OUTCOME BASED EDUCATION PLAN


The College of Engineering has taken initiative steps in order to implement Outcome Based Education (OBE) into its educational
system and thus meet the requirement of the Malaysian Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC). In order for the OBE
implementation to be successful, each department shall produce its own Programme Objectives (PEO) which will cascade down
to Programme Outcomes (PO) and then to Course Outcomes (CO). Each department shall manage the implementation through
various delivery methods in each course, conduct assessment and evaluation process and review the results for continuous quality
improvement (CQI) process. Inputs from relevant stakeholder shall be taken during the CQI process. The OBE framework and
general flow of OBE implementation are as shown in following diagrams.

DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRONICS AND COMMUNICATION ENGINEERING


The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering offers courses leading to the award of
Bachelor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (Hons.) (BEEE)

(KPT/JPS(KR10504)06/14)

Bachelor of Computer and Communication Engineering (Hons.) (BCCE)

(Approved by MQA & MOHE (N/523/6/0070))


These programs are designed to prepare students for professional careers and higher advancement in the area
of communication, electronics, computers, control systems, signal processing, power engineering and other
related areas.
The curriculums for these undergraduate programs require a strong foundation in mathematics, calculus,
physics, computer literacy and programming. Engineering courses begin from the first year itself and include
topics, among others, electrical circuits, electronics, digital logic design, microprocessors, signals & system,
control systems, and data communication and network. In addition to these topics, students taking BEEE
programme will also be exposed to specialized topics such as electrical machines & drives, power systems,
process control and instrumentation, communication systems; while students enrolling in BCCE will be
exposed to topics related to computer architectures, operating systems, embedded systems, communication
electronics, and digital communications.
Laboratory works which include electrical measurement techniques, application of non-linear devices, digital
logic design, electrical machines, microprocessor, signal processing, computer networks and communication
are intended to reinforce the principles obtained in the classroom. In addition, many engineering courses are
classified as design courses and complemented by computer aided engineering software as simulation and
design tools, thus further consolidating the understanding of engineering principles and its application.
Students are also required to take language and social science courses to make them become more wellbalanced in terms of technical and social knowledge and skills.
In the end of the third year, students will go through industrial training where they will be attached with
industries all over Malaysia. This provides insights to students on the real working environment outside.
During the final year, the students are free to choose several topics from technical electives, to specialize
deeper in an area of their interest. They can choose to streamline to a particular options grouping. Design
project courses (the Capstone Design and the Final Year Project) during the final year will aid students in
gaining experience of current technology and equipment usage as well as provide opportunities to apply
engineering principles that they have acquired earlier on, and even further advance into investigative research.

The Program Educational Objectives (PEO) of the Bachelor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (Hons.)
and the Bachelor of Computer and Communication Engineering (Hons.) programs are based upon the qualities
that we wish to attain for the graduates in this discipline at least 5 years after graduation. The PEOs are shown

DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL POWER ENGINEERING


The Department of Electrical Power Engineering is established to develop the advantage of its strong link with
the electricity supply industry through the parent company, Tenaga Nasional Berhad. The department consists
of young energetic academicians as well as experienced practicing engineers in various fields of Electrical Power
Engineering. The department offers program leading to the award of Bachelor of Electrical Power Engineering
(Hons.).
The curricula for the undergraduate programs require a strong foundation in mathematics, physics and
computer. Courses in electrical and electronics engineering begin in the first year after foundation program.
The courses include topics such as electrical circuit analysis, electronics, digital system, microprocessor,
electromagnetic fields, electrical machines and drives, power systems, power electronics and high voltage
technology. Laboratory sessions reinforce the principles learnt in the classroom which include electrical
measurement techniques, application of non-linear devices, digital logic design, signal processing,
microprocessor, electrical machines and power electronics. Many engineering courses are classified as design
courses and complemented by computer aided engineering software as simulation and design tools.
During the final year, the students choose technical electives according to their area of interest. The final year
project courses provide opportunities for the students to apply the engineering principles, experience of current
technology as well as learning the methodology of research. Throughout the course of their study, students will
also take up languages and courses from other departments, and get involved in a variety of clubs and societies
in a holistic approach to become well-rounded graduates.
The program is designed to prepare students to become professional engineers and industry leaders. The
graduates can carve a career in a diverse range of areas in industries such as electricity supply, petroleum,
automotive, chemicals, processing, aerospace and many others. Electrical power engineers are engaged in a
variety of activities including design, manufacturing, research, development, testing, construction, operation,
sales, management, consulting and teaching.

DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING


The Department of Mechanical Engineering provides an excellent learning environment with state-of-the-art
facilities and highly qualified academic staff with extensive level of expertise over a broad range of subject
areas. Its research and teaching activities include applied mechanics and materials, thermal engineering, and
manufacturing systems. The Department of Mechanical Engineering strives to provide quality education to
prepare students for position in industry, commerce and academic. The comprehensive and innovative
content and teaching techniques adopted are designed towards expanding the frontiers of learning and
inculcating a probing mind. Students will be challenged to develop into multi-skilled professionals possessing
mental, intellectual and emotional fortitude to succeed in life.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers the following programmes, Bachelor of Mechanical
Engineering (Hons.), Master of Mechanical Engineering and Ph.D. in Engineering. Over the past 15 years,
the Department has grown tremendously, from only 95 students in 1997 to the current number of more than
1400 students and from only 4 academic staff in 1997 to more than 70 at present.
The curricula, further enhanced with project work, research, open-ended experiments and practical training,
are designed with inputs from the industrial and commercial sectors as well as from local and foreign
universities. The emphasis is towards producing professionals to fulfil the needs of industry and commerce in
particular and the nation in general. More specifically, graduates from this course will have the knowledge and
competencies required to become competent Mechanical Engineer, Design Engineer, Failure Analysis
Engineer, Manufacturing Engineer, Maintenance Engineer, Sales Engineer, Academia and Mechanical
Engineering Consultants.
The Mechanical Engineering programme provides a strong base in the Mechanical Engineering with a wellestablished balance between theory and experiments during the four years of study. The curriculum consists
of a good mix of general courses as well as core Mechanical Engineering courses. A total of 127 credit hours
of courses being taught in 8 semesters and on average there are 5-6 courses per semester being taught. The
programme also contains a compulsory Industrial Training attachment after semester 6 for a period of not
less than 12 weeks. The idea of this attachment is to enable students to gain firsthand experience in industry
as well as an insight to how theories are put into practice in the real engineering situations. This short
attachment in industry was beneficial as it provides the intellectual challenge to students especially in the final
year and when carrying out their final year project.
The programmes are complemented by laboratory work. The department has ten laboratories, which are:
Machine Shop
Mechanics of Materials
Machine Design
Advanced Manufacturing
Automation and Robotics
Computer Aided Design and Computer
Aided Engineering
Computational Fluid Dynamics
Instrumentation and Measurement
Fluid Mechanics
Applied Thermodynamics and Heat
Transfer
Internal Combustion Engine

DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING


The Department of Civil Engineering offers a full-time undergraduate programme leading to the award of
Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) which is designed to prepare students to become Civil Engineers
who are able to plan, design, construct and maintain civil engineering facilities such as buildings, bridges,
foundation, highways, water supply systems, sewerage schemes and other form of infrastructure. The
program is also designed to provide students with the educational base to progress to Professional Engineer
status as well as to undertake Master of Civil Engineering and Doctor of Philosophy from UNITEN and
other reputable institutions of higher learning.
The Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) is a 4-year programme where undergraduate students will study
courses in civil engineering in the following areas:

Structural Engineering.
Geotechnical Engineering.
Transportation & Highway Engineering.

Water Engineering.
Environmental Engineering.
Project Management and Construction.

In addition to the above, undergraduate students will also study other technical courses such as Engineering
Surveying, Engineering Geology, Computer Programming, Engineers in Society and Computer Aided Design
and Drafting Technology. The use of computer applications and software is integrated throughout the
program. Students will also study English and Malay languages, technical communication, moral/religious
studies and humanities in order to produce engineers who are technically competent with strong commitment
to ethics and professionalism and able to communicate effectively which are all essential for students to build
successful career.
Undergraduate students will undertake a capstone design project in their final year. It is a team design project
applying engineering and project management principles for a multidisciplinary design which would involve
an integration of all aspects of Civil Engineering namely Environmental, Geotechnical, Water Supply,
Sewerage, Structural, Transportation and Project Management, with the design process from conceptual and
preliminary design to final design for construction purposes. It requires that each student demonstrate the
ability to complete a significant engineering design using the knowledge gained as an undergraduate in the
Civil Engineering program.
Undergraduate students will undergo industrial training at the end of the third year where students will be
exposed to the various aspects of industrial practices and ethics and to acquire knowledge and skills of
practical nature which are needed for their professional development. Students are also required to undertake
research activities in their final year. The Final Year Project courses provide opportunities for students to
acquire knowledge through research activities and to apply this knowledge to real life problems.
The Department of Civil Engineering has a total of ten (10) undergraduate laboratories which are:

Civil Engineering Materials


Structural Engineering
Soil Mechanics
Geotechnical Engineering
Engineering Geology

Highway Engineering

Transportation Engineering
Hydrology and Hydraulic Engineering
Environmental Engineering
Engineering Surveying

SUPPORT SERVICES
Academic Advisors
Upon entry into the program, you are assigned to an academic advisor. Your advisor is responsible for
helping you to do well academically and succeed in graduating. Your advisor can help with many things,
including: being sure your course schedule for each term is appropriate; getting help for any special problems
you may have; explaining academic procedures; and helping you increase your understanding of the
engineering curricula.
You are to make an appointment each semester to see your advisor to prepare your class schedule. Please do
not make an appointment during your class times. Please be on time for your appointment. If you cannot
attend the appointment, notify your advisor at least one day before your scheduled appointment.
UNITEN Student Development Implementation Committee
The UNITEN Student Development Implementation Committee (USDIC) concerns on the development of
students especially in academic matters. Other than organizing motivation programmes for students, it also
offers additional academic support for students who have CGPA of 2.3 and less. The consultation sessions
are conducted by lecturers who have undergone basic counselling training.
Faculty Consultation
Lecturers expect the students to talk to them about any problems or questions related to their academic work
or field of study. The lecturers support and encouragement to the students are integral parts of engineering
education.
Students will have the opportunity to ask the lecturer questions and to get help with problems, in class, in
a recitation section, or in the lecturers office. The lecturer will expect students to participate in class
discussion and activities.
Students may seek help in completing assignments, but the work submitted must be their own.
Students should not ask for a grade from any lecturer. They receive the grade that they have worked for
and earned in each course.
The quality of a students work may be measured in various ways, and frequently, so that they will have
several opportunities to demonstrate their abilities. The lecturer will expect them to attend class regularly
and to hand in all assigned work on time.
Students will be treated courteously in class, and they must return the courtesy.
Students will be expected to read a considerable amount of material, not in a leisurely fashion, but under
pressure of deadlines.
ACADEMIC REGULATIONS
Assessment Scheme
The evaluation of each subject is done on a scale and the on-going assessments agreed upon by the college as
approved by the university. The performance of a student is based on the following;
i)
On-going assessment based on scheduled tests, assignments/projects and quizzes. Not more than
70% of the total number of marks will be allocated for the on-going assessments and each
component will not be allocated more than 30% of those marks.
ii)
Final examination will be comprehensive and will be held at the end of the semester for each subject.
Not less than 30% of the total number of marks will be allocated for the final exam.

The special conditional requirements for final examination are as listed below:
i.

ii.
iii.
iv.
v.

A student must sit for his/her final examination if he/she registers for courses with final
examination as an assessment. Regardless of his/her carry marks, grade E will be awarded
automatically to students who do not sit for his/her final examination.
Definition of Pass for final examination assessment is 20% of the full mark of the final exam.
If a student obtains marks 20% and above for his/her final examination, a grade will be awarded
based on his/her total marks inclusive of his/her cumulative marks.
If a student obtains marks less than 20% for his/her final examination, he/she will be awarded
grade E regardless of his/her carry marks.
This is only applicable to engineering courses.

Attendance
A student must attend not less than 80% of the contact hours of the subject concerned. Action will be taken
against students whose attendance is less than 80% of the contact hours without a valid reason. The student
may be barred from attending further classes and from taking any form of assessment.
Grading System
His/her Grade Point Average (GPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) indicate a students
performance. The following table is a general summary of the assessment:

Grade Point Average (GPA)


Your grade point average (GPA) is based on your work each semester; you will have a separate GPA for each
semester you are in the program. It is determined as follows: (1) Multiply the number of credit hours
assigned to a course by the number of grade points to determine the number of credit points, or quality points,
corresponding to the grade you received. (2) Add all the credit points. (3) Divide that sum by the total
number of credit hours for which you received a grade.

Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)
Your cumulative grade point average (CGPA) includes all the course work you have completed in the
program. Your CGPA is calculated in the same way that your GPA is computed. The difference is that while
only one semesters worth of courses are considered in your GPA, courses from all your semesters in the
program count in your CGPA.

Repeating A Core Subject


Students who fail a compulsory subject are required to retake the subject until they obtain a passing grade.
For the purpose of CGPA calculation, all subjects/courses registered including failed subjects/courses will be
taken into account in the calculation. A recalculation of CGPA will be done when a student repeat and
replace a subject/course. Students are allowed to repeat and replace their subject/course grades obtained
for all their courses throughout their study period but within the maximum study period as stipulated in the
Academic Regulation, and the best grade will be included in the CGPA calculation.
Besides the letter grades A,B,C,D,E the following status is also applied :
BS = Incomplete

A student is given an incomplete if he/she did not sit for the


examination or did not complete the assignments (e.g. Projects) by the
stipulated date due to ill health as certified by a medical officer or for
other reasons upon the approval of the College Dean/Unit Head. The
student is then required to sit for a special exam, to replace the missed
exam or is required to complete the assignment by a date stipulated by
the College Dean/Unit Head. The extended deadlines must be of
reasonable length.

PK = Credit Transfer

A student is granted a credit transfer for a particular subject in


accordance with the regulations. The student is considered not to
have fulfilled the credit hours for the UNIVERSITY subjects.

LU or = Pass or

A student is given P/F for a subject where it is difficult to determine

136

GA

Fail

and award a letter grade or for the time spent at the industrial training.
In such a subject, the grade Pass will be awarded if the student has met
the requirements satisfactorily. The grade Fail will be awarded if the
student has not met the requirements. The grade P/F is not calculated
in the GPA and CGPA, but students who secure a Fail will have to
repeat the subject until he/she secures a Pass.

TD = Withdraw

A student withdraws from the program after the deadline (as specified
in the Academic Regulations section 3.9.2 but before the date specified
in 3.9.3). The subject withdrawn is not calculated in the CGPA but it
is recorded in the transcript.

AU = Audit -

A student registers with the intention of attending classes but is not


assessed.

Academic Standing
A students performance is evaluated using the CGPA. A students academic achievement is determined at
the end of each semester by using the CGPA as shown in the following table.
Academic Standing
Achievement Level

CGPA

Good Standing (KB)

CGPA < 2.00

A student is placed on academic probation when the students CGPA is less than 2.00 for one semester. A
student whose CGPA is less than 2.00 for two semesters consecutively will be dismissed. The academic
standing of a student of a special semester is not determined although the CGPA is calculated as usual. The
CGPA of a student with a diploma from this university who has been accepted to further his/her studies at
the degree level will be calculated beginning from the first semester of studies.
Deans List
A student who obtains a GPA 3.50 and has grades of not more than C in any subject taken during that
semester and carries a work load of 12 credit hours will be included in the Deans list in the following
semester. The Deans list will be displayed on the notice board of the college. The students transcript will
show this notation.
