Welcome to Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering & Science
The Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science was conceived to support and undertake the vision of UTAR to be a global university of educational excellence with transformative societal impact.
The faculty was established in 2004 beginning with 3 programmes in Bachelor of Science (Hons) and 1 programme in Bachelor of Engineering (Hons). Since then, the faculty has grown continuously with the expansion of programmes from 4 to more than 24 today. Currently, the faculty offers 7 programmes in Bachelor Degree of Science (Hons), 9 programmes in Bachelor of Engineering (Hons), and post-graduate programmes by research in Master of Science, Master of Engineering Science, Doctor of Philosophy by research in Science and in Engineering, and in taught course masters programmes in Project Management, Mathematical Science, Information Systems, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Architecture.
The presence of engineering and science programmes in the campus has placed the faculty in an unique position in the Malaysia higher education where the cross discipline of intellectual exchange between engineering and science is nothing more encouraging and flexible than ever. This paves the foundation of the faculty in fostering the interdisciplinary R&D which we strongly believe it shall be the key of success to achieve academic excellence and subsequently for UTAR to realise its aspiration to become a premier university.
The strategic location in Bandar Sungai Long, near Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia, has created a conducive environment to the faculty for better accessibility not only with the local industry and local academic institutions but also enabling us to gain international exposure by having industrial placement, research collaborations, international conference participations and intellectual exchange on areas of specialisation. This will level up the standard of academic quality and also promote internationalisation for UTAR to be globally recognised.
With Best Regards,
Ir. Prof. Dr. Goi Bok Min
