Electrical and Electronics (E&E) Engineering is one of the fastest growing branches of engineering that greatly impacts the modern society. It encompasses a whole spectrum of specializations, such as electrical power generation, electronic design, computer modelling, telecommunications, electro-magnetics, information technology and expert systems.

The E&E programme at Xiamen University Malaysia (XMUM) is mainly supported by the School of Information Science and Technology and the School of Aerospace Engineering of Xiamen University. As one of the oldest engineering schools in China offering a comprehensive range of subjects, the School of Information Science and Technology has cultivated thousands of outstanding graduates who have made great contributions to the development of E&E industry in China and Southeast Asia. It boasts an exemplary national teaching centre for electronic information, and hosts the Ministry of Education's 'Key Laboratory for Underwater Acoustic Communication and Marine Information Engineering'. It has also established extensive ties through academic exchange and cooperation with many world-renowned universities and enterprises. The School of Aerospace Engineering, the first of its kind in China, was set up through a partnership between the Aviation Industry Corporation of China and Xiamen University. With a strong link to the aviation industry, the School ensures that all staff are at the forefront of their own discipline and have an up-to-date appreciation of aerospace technology developments and research directions. For both schools, a significant number of internationally well-known scholars are appointed as adjunct, guest or honorary professors, including members of the Engineering Academies of the US and Canada.

Our programme equips graduates with expertise and skills to perform professional roles in the field of electrical and electronic engineering, and to apply innovative and pioneering approaches to develop new products and technologies, while keeping track of the cutting-edge developments and latest trends in the industry. In view of a massive talent shortage in this field, we are confident that our graduates will be actively sought after by employers.

*All graduates of this programme who apply for registration as graduate engineers will be registered under the electrical engineering discipline with the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).
