Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET) is one of the major academic units in the University. Its mission is to inspire inquiring minds through innovative learning and research. The students are given training, both in-depth and broad-based, on fundamental principles, advanced technology and practical aspects of engineering, with the aid of interactive multimedia. The subjects covered include telecommunications, robotics, mechanical and bio-instrumentation technologies.
The approach combines classroom instruction, computer-based interactive multimedia learning mode as well as open interaction between members of staff and students, amongst students, and between the university with the various industries. We are creating a learned community that collects, preserves and disseminates state-of-the-art knowledge in multimedia-related areas.
In addition to the pursuit of academic excellence, our graduates shall possess moral, ethical, as well as spiritual values. They are intelligent leaders who are able to produce engineering solutions based on sound fundamental engineering principles, and at the same time, possess an instinct for creativity and innovation. These graduates are multi-skilled and they are capable of spearheading scientific invention, technological breakthrough and wealth creation. At the same time, they are environmentally conscious and they hold paramount concern for the safety, health and welfare of the public when executing their duties.
FET offers opportunities for research over a wide range of disciplines. At present, there are 3 university-level research centres in FET, namely Centre for Advanced Materials and Green Technology (CAMGT), Centre for Remote Sensing and Surveillance Technologies (CRSST), and Centre for Robotics and Automation (CRA). There are also 4 faculty-level special interest groups, namely Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (BIIT), Communication Systems and Algorithms (CSA), Solid State Electronics (SSE) and Digital VLSI Design (DVD). We aim for international recognition in the R&D community, and we aim to achieve an established record of outstanding innovations where fundamental research can be transformed into products of commercial significance. Extensive industrial contacts have ensured that collaboration and financial support on a large scale are available.
The distinct features of the Faculty are:
To be a competitive faculty through innovation of learning and research in engineering and technology
To inspire inquiring minds through innovative learning and research

Degree Programmes Offered by the Faculty
4. Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Electronics majoring in Bio-Instrumentation
A wide spectrum of career opportunities awaits our engineering graduates. The degree programmes offered by the faculty are well suited to the needs of the information age. Opportunities are abundant for telecommunication, mechanical and robotics and automation engineering graduates in the expanding of the industry as well as the up and coming bio medical engineering industry.
Presently, the need for engineers and professionals in embedded system is therefore tremendous. At such, a retraining in this field for working engineers will be very rewarding indeed.
In fact, the global demand for quality engineers has been and will be growing at a tremendous rate. It is expected that these graduates will establish startup companies and become the future cyberpreneurs of the region. For those who are interested in an academic career, they are encouraged to pursue their postgraduate studies in this university or other prestigious universities abroad.
