Gateway to a good career in engineering
THE University of Southampton’s world-leading degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Electrical and Electronic Engineering are now open for 2014 enrolment at its prestigious Malaysia Campus in EduCity, Iskandar.
From October next year, the university is proposing to expand its range of programmes in Malaysia by offering an undergraduate degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Supported by Southampton’s unrivalled reputation and long successful history of education, research and enterprise, these degree programmes are designed to help pave the career paths of aspiring engineers in Malaysia and around the world.
Innovative teaching methods and assessment
The University of Southampton Malaysia Campus welcomed its first students in 2012, offering an unmatched student experience through a range of innovative teaching methods and assessment.
Future graduates will complete their first two years in Malaysia and the final two in Britain, benefiting from the same modules in the first two years in Southampton but at an overall cost of 40% less.
Facilities in both countries are designed for effective hands-on learning, with students in Britain exposed to some of Southampton’s outstanding engineering teaching laboratories and computing facilities.
These include the university’s renowned high-voltage laboratory and award-winning wind tunnels where the road to Olympic gold started for many British cyclists and other high performance athletes.
Southampton is also home to worldrenowned research pioneers who have successfully harnessed light to develop the fibreoptic cable technology that makes broadband and other services possible.
This means that every time you use the Internet, your mobile phone or an automatic teller machine, you are using technology developed at the University of Southampton.
Currently ranked first in Britain by the Guardian University Guide for Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Southampton is also in the Top 10 for Computer Science and IT and second for Mechanical Engineering.
Globally, the university’s combined subject area of Engineering and Technology places Southampton 75th in the world according to the latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
With that pedigree, it is no surprise that Southampton graduates are highly sought after by major employers who also provide other forms of direct support for students such as scholarships.
In Malaysia, the top three academic performers in Mechanical Engineering are receiving special scholarships from the Lloyd’s Register Foundation, a major university partner.
Next year, a second set of scholarships from the foundation will be awarded to Electrical and Electronic Engineering students based in Malaysia.
“We are very proud of our reputation and believe that students who choose to study with us at the University of Southampton Malaysia Campus will receive a first-class education from a world-leading institution,” said University of Southampton, Malaysia Campus, chief executive officer Prof John McBride.
