Any aspiring engineer needs to be familiar with latest technological innovations brought about by the Fourth Industrial Revolution (I.R 4.0).

After all, the future of their workplace is continuously being shaped by buzzwords such as Embedded Systems, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence and Automation.

Boasting over 30 years’ experience under its belt, First City University College has successfully guided many students through the fast changing engineering industry. Its Faculty of Engineering & Computing (FEC) offers up-to-date engineering programmes which are taught by a team of qualified lecturers with deep insights in the industry.

Students holding a Foundation, UEC or A-Level qualification will be enrolled into Year 1 of FEC’s Bachelor Degree programme whereas students with a relevant Diploma will gain progression into Year 2.

FEC students  at First City UC will enjoy access to up-to-date course materials and cutting edge equipment such as the IoT Development Kit, PCB Plotter, Lathe Machine and Milling Machine.

Moreover, students will be required to conceptualise and implement their own Final Year projects, before showcasing them at the annual Innovation Day event. First City UC’s industry partners have been known to attend this event, even offering jobs to outstanding students.
