SEGi’s new ar­chi­tec­ture pro­gramme

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Higher Education -

SEGI Univer­sity’s Fac­ulty of En­gi­neer­ing and Built En­vi­ron­ment (FoEBE) pro­duces qual­ity en­gi­neers knowl­edge­able of the in­dus­try, and who are ca­pa­ble of build­ing in­fra­struc­tures for the greater good.

Since its es­tab­lish­ment in 2009, the fac­ulty has slowly and steadily built a strong rep­u­ta­tion for aca­demic ex­cel­lence.

Fac­ulty stu­dents are taught in-depth knowl­edge on en­gi­neer­ing, sciences and math­e­mat­ics, to en­sure they mas­ter an­a­lyt­i­cal think­ing skills and ap­ply them on new chal­lenges rel­e­vant to the in­dus­try.

FoEBE col­lab­o­rates with other rep­utable and pres­ti­gious uni­ver­si­ties from the United King­dom, such as Univer­sity of Sunderland and Aber­tay Univer­sity, for its un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree pro­grammes.

Stu­dents in­ter­ested in pur­su­ing a de­gree in en­gi­neer­ing can en­rol in dif­fer­ent niche ar­eas, as SEGi of­fers a myr­iad of world-class de­gree pro­grammes

Th­ese in­clude Elec­tronic and Elec­tri­cal En­gi­neer­ing, Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing, Au­to­mo­tive En­gi­neer­ing, Civil En­gi­neer­ing, Chem­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing and Quan­tity Sur­vey­ing.

SEGi Univer­sity is also launch­ing a new un­der­grad­u­ate pro­gramme in Ar­chi­tec­ture from July on­wards.

This Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence (Hons) Ar­chi­tec­ture is a home-grown de­gree and made avail­able in the Kota Da­mansara flag­ship cam­pus.

This com­pre­hen­sive three-year pro­gramme en­com­passes mod­ules in­volv­ing spa­tial plan­ning and how that is in­flu­enced by fac­tors, like in­no­va­tion and tech­nol­ogy.

SEGi’s team of ex­pe­ri­enced lec­tur­ers will en­cour­age stu­dents to dis­cuss and ar­tic­u­late ideas in dif­fer­ent styles of de­sign.

This pro­gramme will have a soft launch in July and will be of­fi­cially launched in Septem­ber.

Ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties for ar­chi­tec­tural grad­u­ates are aplenty de­pend­ing on their in­ter­est. They can ei­ther choose land­scap­ing or prop de­sign. Other op­por­tu­ni­ties in­clude in­te­rior de­sign­ing, 3D an­i­ma­tor vi­su­al­is­ing, vis­ual art, CAD de­sign­ing or op­er­at­ing, aca­demic re­search­ing and more.

Upon suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the de­gree pro­gramme, stu­dents can reg­is­ter with the Lem­baga Arkitek Malaysia (LAM) Part I.

Al­ter­na­tively, stu­dents can also pur­sue a Mas­ter of Ar­chi­tec­ture grad­u­ate pro­gramme for an ad­di­tional two years, which en­ables them to ob­tain LAM Part II.

Stu­dents will get ad­e­quate ex­po­sure from the in­dus­try as SEGi ed­u­ca­tors are also prac­tis­ing ar­chi­tects cer­ti­fied by LAM Part II.

For starters, to en­sure top-notch ed­u­ca­tion ex­pe­ri­ence for ar­chi­tec­tural stu­dents, SEGi prac­tices low stu­dent-to-lec­turer ra­tio, to en­sure per­son­alised at­ten­tion.

The univer­sity guar­an­tees a place­ment for stu­dents to un­dergo six months of in­dus­trial train­ing, where the ex­pe­ri­ence will equip them with the right skills and work ethics.

SEGi stays true to its tagline of “The Best in You, Made Pos­si­ble”.

It be­lieves in giv­ing equal op­por­tu­nity to all to pur­sue ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion, re­gard­less of gen­der or fi­nan­cial back­ground.

SEGi ex­tends schol­ar­ships such as its High Achiever’s Schol­ar­ship (HAS) and fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance such as the Na­tional Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Fund (PTPTN) to de­serv­ing stu­dents.

SEGi also of­fers a spe­cial in­tro­duc­tory re­bate of up to RM3,000 for new stu­dents.

The SEGi com­mu­nity gives ar­chi­tec­tural stu­dents a step­ping stone to­wards a suc­cess­ful ca­reer in lo­cal and global ar­chi­tec­tural in­dus­try. STPM, ma­tric­u­la­tion or A-Lev­els school-leavers have a di­rect en­try into the pro­gramme while SPM or O-Lev­els school-leavers can first pur­sue the Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence pro­gramme. Upon com­ple­tion they can en­rol in the BSc (Hons) Ar­chi­tec­ture.
