The Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering program prepares you for careers in the Electrical, Electronics, Telecommunication, and Manufacturing environments. This program offers a broad-based study in the areas of electrical and electronic engineering.
This APIIT Diploma in Electrical & Electronic Engineering is designed to provide:
- A full range of modules in the electrical and electronic engineering spectrum is provided.
- Other skills necessary for the workplace are also provided. These include communication skills and life-long learning skills.
- You will be equipped with the knowledge and expertise to face the challenges of business development in a wide range of electrical and electronic industries.
In this semester, students will be introduced to preparatory modules which would be essential for them to embark on their journey in completion of their diploma. Students will be taught English for writing, reading, and speaking together with basic Mathematics, Mechanics, and Computing. Students are also required to take one General Studies module as required by the Malaysian Qualification Agency.
- English for Academic Purpose
- Engineering Mechanics
- Foundation of Engineering Mathematics
- Practical IT Skills
- General Studies Module
Continuation from semester 1; students study Mathematics in more depth and are exposed to professional communications and business to prepare them with skills essential to prepare them in the working world.
- Professional Communications
- Business Environment
- Engineering Mathematics 1
In semester 3, students will continue studying Mathematics. They would also learn to construct simple logic circuits and to apply concepts of the magnetic and electrical fields. In addition to these, they would be also learning about atomic structure, properties, and failures of materials such as polymers and metal alloys.
- Engineering Materials
- Engineering Mathematics 2
- Electrical and Electronic Principles
From semester 4 onwards, students are introduced to core engineering modules. They would be learning about calculating currents and voltages in circuits using Kirchoff’s Law, network theorems, and nodal and mesh analysis. They also learn about various types of instruments used for engineering measurements and have the opportunity to use them; preparing themselves with sufficient knowledge on lab equipment before they experience more labs in coming semesters. Students are also exposed to computer-based 3D modeling, Boolean Algebra, Karnaugh map, and the construction of digital arithmetic circuits.
- Analysis of Circuits
- Communication Engineering Principles
- Design Principles
- Digital Electronics
Two of the modules in this semester uses programming languages. Students are taught how to write assembly language programs to program the microprocessor and microcontroller and also to design, implement and test algorithms in C programming. In addition to this, students are also exposed to analog circuits and their analysis.
- Microprocessor and Microcontroller Systems
- Analogue Electronics
- Problem Solving and Program Design Using C
- Generation, Transmission & Protection
- Organizational Behaviour
During the final semester, students are taught to understand and solve problems involving three-phase circuits, synchronous machines, transformers, transmission lines, and power system protection, learn to interpret control process and transform the process into mathematical expression and learn about detailed construction, types, operating characteristics of DC & AC Machines and drives. Students also learn about modulation and demodulation of information-carrying signals.
- Control Systems
- Electrical Machines and Drives
- Instrumentation and Measurements
- Final Year Project
Semester 7 - Internship (8 weeks)
Students will undertake an Internship/Industrial Training for a minimum period of 8 weeks to prepare them for a smooth transition from the classroom to the working environment.
*In addition to the above, all students are also required to successfully complete General Studies modules as stipulated by the Malaysian Qualification Agency, as well as fulfill credit requirements for Co-curricular activities.
Upon successful completion of this program, you will be eligible to progress into any of the following degree programs offered at APU.
- Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical & Electronic Engineering with Honours
- Bachelor of Engineering in Telecommunication Engineering with Honours
- Bachelor of Computer Engineering with Honours
- Bachelor of Engineering in Mechatronic Engineering with Honours
