The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science is located at UTAR Sungai Long Campus. There are a total of 36 full time academic staffs in the department, including 6 Professors, 11 Associate Professor, 14 Assistant Professors, 1 Senior Lecture, 3 lecturers and 1 specialist. In addition, the department comprises 7 certified professional engineers (PEng) registered under IEM.
The programmes offered by the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering are recognized by the Malaysian Public Services Department (JPA) and the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM), providing an opportunity for students to master the basics of engineering principles underlying electrical, electronic and communication engineering. These programmes are in-line with the state-of-art of technologies in electrical, electronics and communication engineering. These programmes develop students’ ability to analyze, identify, formulate and generate specific solutions for the problems encountered. At the end of these programmes, students will be able to develop an appreciation of the role of an engineer in designing better systems.
There are four programmes offered in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, viz., Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Electronic and Communication Engineering, Physics and Electronics (Computer Networking). Each programme is actively engaged in R&D with the financial support from the University, Government Funds such as FRGS, AAIBE, and other industrial grants. The academic staff members have been actively participated in competitions in the national and international levels and received prestigious awards, including International APICTA Award, MSC Malaysia APICTA, Invention and Innovation Malaysia, National Instruments Graphical System Design Achievement Award, International Technology Expo (ITEX), and to name a few. On top of that, the academic members collaborate closely with industry and provide consultancy services. Numerous industrial visits have been organized by the department to give students an insight into the operation and the working environment in the industry. These industrial visits supplement the various theories acquired in the classroom for an understanding.
