This Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Hons.) in Welding and Quality Inspection is the first programme of its kind in Malaysia and would probably be the first in this region. The modules/syllabus were developed by Universiti Kuala Lumpur with the cooperation of our industrial partner, SIRIM Berhad. This a four-year programme that is intended to produce future graduates or individuals with professional qualifications accepted by the industries. The programme would also emphasize in imparting up-to-date technical know-how and competencies as a Welding Engineer.
