1. Possess the passion for acquiring knowledge and skill in embedded systems (Objectives 1 & 2)
The field of embedded system is evolving rapidly. In order to be up to date with latest development,
graduates must engage in life long learning. This is achieved when graduates possess the passion to acquire knowledge.
Graduates are exposed to a solid foundation in embedded system to ease the process of acquiring new knowledge or new
development in embedded system.
2. Able to design and develop embedded systems (hardware, peripherals and firmware) (Objectives 1 & 2)
Information is transformed into experience and practical knowledge through building practical systems
and writing the required software for specific applications. A working prototype requires intimate knowledge and technical
details of the hardware, peripherals and operating systems being selected.
In most of the core and elective subjects, assignments based on design work are given to strengthen the engineers'
understanding of the concepts and principles learned in the subject and the know-how of applying them to solve real life problems.
3. Able to demonstrate embedded system applications (Objective 1)
Embedded systems are used in many different types of applications including automobiles, robotic,
medical devices, security access ect. In order to contribute to the embedded system industry, graduates must be able
to demonstrate practical and marketable applications.
4. Possess analytical and problem solving skills (Objective 3)
Literature search is a basic research skill. This skill is enhanced throughout this course through
searching database such as IEEExplore, ScienceDirect, Google Scholar, and others. From the literature search, students
are able to understand the current research state of a particular topic in the field of embedded system. They are able
to analyze and formulate new technical problems to be explored and to be solved.
5. Recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in lifelong learning and development (Objective 2 & 3)
To create the awareness of the importance of continuous self-improvement and lifelong learning is by
exposing the students to new and emerging technology, through the core and elective subjects. The students' experience
via working in the industry and coupled with knowledge gained in the course will allow them to venture into a new and
exciting career path. As technology changes rapidly, and for the students to be competitive, they will need to continuously
educate and update themselves.
In addition, by undertaking the university-wide subject namely Cyberpreneurship and Technology Business Strategy,
the students will be well equipped with the fundamental management, business, strategic planning and communication
skills that would better prepare them to become the technopreneur of the coming generation.
