An industry-relevant engineer needs to be familiar with the latest technological innovations brought about by the Fourth Industrial Revolution (I.R 4.0).
Moreover, he or she must demonstrate familiarity with the key pillars of I.R 4.0 – Embedded Systems, Artificial Intelligence and Automation – which are influencing the country’s manufacturing sector.
With over 30 years’ experience under its belt, First City University College is confident in helping aspiring students to navigate through the challenging yet exciting tech landscape. Through the Faculty of Engineering & Computing (FEC), the University College offers engineering programmes which are taught by a team of qualified and experienced lecturers.
Diploma in Electronic Engineering
Those with a keen interest towards electronics are encouraged to enrol in the Diploma in Electronic Engineering programme. Offered by the Faculty of Engineering & Computing (FEC), this programme will develop students’ solid understanding of engineering sciences and mathematics as well as other basic knowledge relevant to electronic engineering.
The field of Electronic Engineering comprises many smaller fields such as semiconductor devices, communication engineering, telecommunications, control systems, signal processing, embedded systems, computer engineering, instrumentation engineering, electrical circuits etc.
The Diploma in Electronic Engineering familiarises students with these fields through modules such as Fundamentals of Circuits, Electronic Devices & Circuits, Integrated Circuit (IC) Technology, Communications, and Embedded Systems Programming & Interfacing. Students are taught to use Mentor Graphics, a software used by leading microchip companies to design microchips, Integrated Circuit (IC) and microprocessors.
Facilities such as this Analogue Electronics Lab provides Diploma in Electronic Engineering students with the required advanced equipment for their lessons.
Facilities such as this Electronics Prototyping Lab provides Diploma in Electronic Engineering students with the required advanced equipment for their lessons.
Students gain access to the latest developments in the Electronic Engineering profession, courtesy of their Institute of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) membership paid for by First City UC.
Moreover, they will undergo an internship placement arranged by the Faculty to gain valuable hands-on working experience. Thus, graduates will demonstrate optimal industry-readiness when applying for jobs in fields such as electronic systems engineering, communication engineering, maintenance engineering, project engineering, process engineering, engineering testing or even microchips design.
Above all, graduates also enjoy the advantage of being able to progress to Year 2 of First City UC’s Electronic Engineering degree programme.
Diploma in Mechatronics
Meanwhile, students with a keen interest in robotics or automation should consider the Diploma in Mechatronics programme.
While the programme’s modules focus on electrical & electronic engineering, embedded systems, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, hydraulics & pneumatics and applied mechanics, students are also tasked with robotics and automation related projects. Through these projects, students learn how to provide innovative, creative, and ethical solutions in the field of mechatronics.
Moreover, students will gain access to the latest developments in the Mechatronics Engineering profession, courtesy of their Institute of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) membership paid for by First City UC.
In order to boost their industry-readiness, students will participate in a mandatory internship placement arranged by the Faculty. This advantage prepares them for careers in areas involving robotics, automation, process engineering, manufacturing, production engineering, testing and quality control.
Mechatronics Diploma students use state-of-the-art equipment such as the Lathe Machine the Mechanical Workshop.
