Overview of Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Materials and Manufacturing Engineering in Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman UTAR Malaysia

Materials engineers investigate how different materials can be most usefully applied in society, whilst manufacturing engineers take raw materials and basic components and turn them into products. This programme offers education and research for the development and application of new materials.  

It aims to provide graduates with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the characteristics of various materials that are vital for Malaysian industry to adopt innovative manufacturing processes to give local products a competitive edge in the world market. It applies principles of the sciences and engineering to understand the characteristics of materials and manufacturing processes.

Thus, this course contributes to the scientific knowledge and bridges the gap between modern chemistry and physical mass, manufacturing technology and mathematical analysis. The course structures and syllabuses are designed for graduates to be equipped with the essential technical knowledge and skills required by many companies and industries.
