MASTER PROGRAMME

As Malaysia aims to become a fully industrialized nation by 2020, Malaysian businesses and corporate sectors have to provide the impetus and drive for this movement forward. Globalization and K-Economy require Malaysian industries to constantly upgrade their knowledge, competency and skills. This will create an ever-expanding demand for technical and managerial skills and talents.

The Centre for Graduate Studies (PPS) of Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM) was established to further enhance the contribution of UTeM in the area of engineering, technology and management through rigorous and dedicated academic research.  The research activities at UTeM are geared towards the combination of applied industrial and academic excellence.

Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM) Centre for Graduate Studies was strives to provide higher degree education that is of high quality and relevant to the needs of the varied participants of the on the range of programs offered. The ability to respond to participant’s need is facilitated by a program structure, which permits the maximum flexibility consistent with the maintenance of academic requirements and standards and with an emphasis close professional relationships between staff and students within the Centre. It is part of an academic community, which prides itself on an outstanding reputation for teaching and research. The academic staffs, working at the frontier of their subjects, are often in close collaboration with colleagues from the industries and the Government. In the spirit of supportive fraternity, all students, regardless of creed and background, benefit from the challenges and opportunities presented by such environment.

Students tend to identify most strongly with their academic department or individual supervisor. However, all graduate students at UTeM, as well as those involved in teaching and supporting them, are also members of the Centre for Graduate Studies. The Centre supports academic excellence of departments by providing a high-level focus within the University for Graduate Study and the interest of the graduate students; it also organizes research training program and participates in the quality assurance of postgraduate degrees.

We at the Centre for Graduate Studies are committed to providing you with numerous opportunities to develop your skills and knowledge while providing you with a supportive yet challenging environment.

MASTER PROGRAMME BY RESEARCH

MASTER OF SCIENCE

The Master of Science candidate is supervised by an academic staff (or a panel of supervisors) from the faculty. The directed research work will focus on a particular subject that introduces candidates to the processes by which new knowledge is developed or/and applied accordingly. The specific topic of investigation will be agreed upon by the supervisor (or panel of supervisors) and the candidate. The academic progress of a candidate is assessed through a research. Progress Report submitted at the end of each semester. The degree is awarded based on an oral examination (viva-voce) of the thesis submitted by the candidate on completion of the study. Candidates intending to study by research may submit their application for admission throughout the year.

Programmes Offered:
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Electronic Engineering
  • Mechatronic Engineering
