Programme Educational Objectives:
Graduates of APU Bachelor of Engineering in their respective programs are expected within five years of graduation to attain the following programme educational objectives:
Mechatronic Engineering is concerned with the creation, design and building of intelligent machines. This new breed of engineer has to master skills in mechanical, electronic and computer engineering and work in a hybrid manner, meeting an ever-increasing need in industry where complexity of projects is rising and resources are limited. The main areas of activity are:
The students, upon completion of their study, should attain the following outcomes:
Mechatronic Engineering vs Mechanical Engineering:
DEGREE LEVEL 1
Students will understand the basic principles of engineering in the areas of Circuit Analysis, Engineering Materials, Instrumentation & Measurement and Engineering Design. Other modules aim to provide the basic academic skills required to meet the demands of employers, as well as thorough grounding in principles of IT and management. Important and relevant skills for managing activities and for their own independent learning are also introduced.
DEGREE LEVEL 2
Here, students start specialising in modules that develop the necessary underlying knowledge and skills in Mechatronic Engineering with modules such as Analogue Electronics, Digital Electronics, Introduction to Electrical Systems, Electromagnetic Field Theory, Engineering Software & Applications, Signals and Linear Systems,Strength of Materials, Robotics Technology and Sensor & Actuators. Engineering Mathematics is provided for the better understanding of the engineering modules.
DEGREE LEVEL 3
Specialised knowledge and skills in the areas of Control Engineering, Communication Engineering Principles, Numerical Methods & Statistics, Microprocessor Systems & Embedded Software, Machine Design, Fluid Mechanics, PLC & Pneumatic System and Machine Vision & Intelligence are the critical focus of this level. This is a further development of the ability to apply relevant engineering skills with strong critical thinking and analysis. Independent learning continues in all modules.
Elective Modules (choose 1)
INTERNSHIP (16 weeks)
Students will undertake an Internship/Industrial Training for a minimum period of 16 weeks to prepare them for a smooth transition from the classroom to the working environment.
DEGREE LEVEL 4
The final year Engineering modules provide the necessary industry application and technological skills which become very useful for employment upon graduation. Students’ personal and professional development, technical capability and understanding of how to innovate, generate and manage the creation of new ideas will be enhanced. Students will deliver several Engineering Projects where they will demonstrate higher level critical thinking, analysis and solutions development skills which will enhance their employability.
Elective Modules (choose 1)
MQA Compulsory Subjects *
(*All students are required to successfully complete these modules as stipulated by the Malaysian Qualification Agency)
DIRECT ENTRY TO LEVEL 1 OF THE DEGREE:
• 2 Passes in STPM with a minimum Grade C (GP 2.0) in Mathematics and Physics (or Chemistry), and a Credit in Mathematics and Physics (or Chemistry) at SPM Level or its equivalent.
• 2 Passes in A-Level including Mathematics and Physics (or Chemistry), and a Credit in Mathematics and Physics (or Chemistry) at SPM/O-Level/ IGCSE or its equivalent.
• 5 Grade B’s in UEC, including Mathematics and Physics (or Chemistry).
• Passed the relevant Foundation programme (minimum CGPA of 2.0) with a Credit in Mathematics and Physics (or Chemistry) at SPM/O-Level/IGCSE or equivalent.
Direct Entry to level 2 of the Degree:
• Successful completion of the APU/APIIT Diploma or
• Successful completion of studies in another recognised institute with academic credits equivalent to Level 1 of an Honours Degree (Subject to the approval of the APU/APIIT Academic Board)
