Tech­nol­o­gists with bud­ding ca­reers

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Education Guide -

STU­DENTS of­ten find them­selves lost and in­de­ci­sive on the course to pur­sue af­ter SPM.

Tran­si­tion­ing from se­condary school to univer­sity can be daunt­ing, but with the right choice of pro­gramme, they can seam­lessly tran­si­tion into ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion.

It is im­por­tant to choose a field of study that will in­ter­est them and an institution that pro­vides a whole­some and well-rounded ex­pe­ri­ence.

One of the mar­ketable ar­eas that pro­vide a good plat­form is En­gi­neer­ing and Tech­nol­ogy.

UniKL Malaysian Span­ish In­sti­tute (UniKL MSI) has ed­u­cated and pre­pared stu­dents for sev­eral in­ter­est­ing cour­ses of­fered in en­gi­neer­ing tech­nol­ogy.

Lo­cated at Kulim Hi-Tech Park, UniKL MSI cam­pus spe­cialises in me­chan­i­cal, man­u­fac­tur­ing, elec­tri­cal and elec­tron­ics.

Es­tab­lished in 2002, UniKL MSI has col­lab­o­rated with the Span­ish gov­ern­ment for tech­nol­ogy trans­fer in en­gi­neer­ing and in­dus­trial sec­tors and now of­fers com­pre­hen­sive di­ploma and bach­e­lor pro­grammes.

The Di­ploma En­gi­neer­ing Tech­nol­ogy in Me­chan­i­cal De­sign and De­vel­op­ment pro­gramme of­fers in­di­vid­u­als wide knowl­edge and ca­pa­bil­i­ties in de­sign­ing me­chan­i­cal prod­ucts, fix­tures and gen­eral parts, with am­ple knowl­edge on ma­te­rial and man­u­fac­tur­ing.

The Di­ploma En­gi­neer­ing Tech­nol­ogy in Au­to­mated Reg­u­la­tion and Con­trol pro­vides ex­per­tise in cur­rent dis­tri­bu­tion in­stal­la­tion, con­trol pro­grammes of elec­tro tech­ni­cal au­to­ma­tion equip­ment, con­trol and reg­u­la­tion sys­tem of ma­chines or in­dus­trial pro­cesses.

The Di­ploma En­gi­neer­ing Tech­nol­ogy in Elec­trome­chan­i­cal In­stal­la­tion and Main­te­nance pro­gramme also pre­pares grad­u­ates with the tech­ni­cal skills nec­es­sary for re­ward­ing ca­reers in their cho­sen dis­ci­pline.

Th­ese skills in­clude the ap­pli­ca­tion, in­stal­la­tion, man­u­fac­tur­ing oper­a­tion and/or main­te­nance of elec­tronic sys­tems.

Apart from teach­ing stu­dents on the lat­est elec­tri­cal and elec­tronic tech­nol­ogy, com­puter ap­pli­ca­tion soft­ware, lab­o­ra­tory equip­ment and the oper­a­tion of elec­tronic sys­tems, the pro­gramme also ex­poses them to crit­i­cal-think­ing skills, anal­y­sis and prob­lem-solv­ing tech­ni­cal pro­ce­dures as well as the use of in­for­ma­tion ac­qui­si­tion tools.

The three in­ter­est­ing di­ploma en­gi­neer­ing tech­nol­ogy pro­grammes of­fered by UniKL MSI pro­duce grad­u­ates with op­por­tu­ni­ties to be­come high-level tech­nol­o­gists in a wide range of in­dus­tries, es­pe­cially in man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tors, re­search and de­vel­op­ment sec­tors.

The ca­reer open­ings are wide and re­ward­ing for those with the right ed­u­ca­tion and ta­lent.

Job op­por­tu­ni­ties for a high­level tech­nol­o­gist ex­ist in all in­dus­trial com­pa­nies that in­volve me­chan­i­cal, elec­trome­chan­i­cal and au­to­ma­tion.

Univer­siti Kuala Lumpur is one of the Malaysia’s top uni­ver­si­ties and it fo­cuses strongly on crit­i­cal ar­eas of stud­ies that en­com­pass en­gi­neer­ing, sci­ences, business and man­age­ment.

With 12 cam­puses around Malaysia, UniKL is a lead­ing tech­ni­cal univer­sity in Malaysia, pro­duc­ing more than 30,000 grad­u­ates with ex­cel­lent tech­ni­cal and lead­er­ship skills.

Be­sides in­cor­po­rat­ing in­ter­na­tional and mul­ti­cul­tural ex­po­sure in stu­dents’ learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences, ex­ten­sive in­dus­trial train­ing com­po­nents and per­sonal en­rich­ment com­pe­tency el­e­ments are also blended into the pro­gramme of study to en­sure grad­u­ates’ em­ploy­a­bil­ity.

Grad­u­ates from UniKL re­main pop­u­lar choices among em­ploy­ers and in­dus­tries.
