KPT/JPS (N/520/3/0046) (MQA/FA2716) 01/18
INTAKES : JANUARY, JULY
 
The foundation in engineering programme equips students with the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue a successful engineering degree. As part of our education pathway, students who complete this foundation programme are eligible to pursue degrees in chemical, mechanical or electrical & electronic engineering. The programme also places emphasises in learning by doing, and students are regularly required to immerse themselves in hands-on learning activities such as case studies and real-life projects.

As part of their course of study, students will be exposed to an innovative and technologically-driven programme that employs digital tools to enhance teaching and learning.

Upon completion, students will develop core competencies in the field of Engineering, which gives them a head-start to becoming sought-after future engineers who are able to positively impact the world around them.
 
 
1-YEAR PROGRAMME

Strong Engineering Focus
  • Exposure to the fundamental understanding of the engineering industry with subjects like Engineering, Civilisation & Future of Mankind and Engineering Design & Innovation.

Revolutionary Learning using iPad
  • Students will use iPads to access the latest learning tools such as iBooks and electronic study materials that have been specially developed by the School.

From Theory to Application
  • Students are exposed to cutting-edge knowledge and relevant industry concepts as the programme is led and delivered by Chartered and Professional Engineers.
  • Cognitive skills are taught through project-based learning, which constitutes a hands-on approach that is effective and interactive.
  • Introduction to CDIOTM framework that stresses on the whole product life cycle.

Balanced Learning Environment
  • Opportunity to acquire and demonstrate discipline- specific knowledge, cognitive capabilities and soft skills.
  • A balanced assessment method, whereby 50% of the evaluation is allocated to various continuous assessments such as quizzes, course work, class tests, projects, oral presentations and laboratory practical reports while the remaining 50% to the final exam.

Conducive Learning Environment
  • Same access to the University’s facilities as undergraduate and postgraduate students, and able to contribute equally to the campus community.
  • Students are kept up-to-date with the latest developments in science and technology through a range of activities, such as science discovery workshops, guest lectures, research work and career talks.

Reliable Support System
  • First Year Experience (FYE) initiatives, such as motivational talks and peer-assisted study sessions, provide students the much-needed support to adjust to university life and excel in academic and extra-curricular activities.
