Bachelor of Electrical Engineering (Power Electronic & Drives) aims to produce graduates with technical knowledge and skills in the area of power electronics and drives. This field is growing rapidly in line with the development of electrical and electronic engineering technologies based on electronic power conversion technology and control techniques. This technology is used to design and produce efficient and high performance, small size and environmentally friendly product. Application of power electronics and drive technology involves several disciplines of analogue and digital systems, power converter, sensor, various types of electric motors, interfacing, computer and embedded controller program.
This course would take four (4) years minimum and consist of at least 138 credit hours.
This course will be conducted with approximately 80% of contact hours that emphasize theory and the remainder 20% meeting hour, involving the practical / laboratory experiments, computer-aided learning, and Problem Based Learning (PBL). It also encourages active and cooperative learning activities other than carrying out assignments, job workshops, industrial training and one final year project based on industrial problem.
