Hello Farah,

Civil Engineering and Architecture both have similarities in the case where they work with planning and designing structures. However, Architecture focuses more on the spatial functionality and aesthetics of the development work (aka the design) while Civil Engineering focuses more on the structural elements of the design, ensuring the safety and durability of the structure in both normal and extreme conditions. 

Hope this helps :)

Hello Ariffin,

Although it is possible to change the location of your university for government universities, there is a very slim chance that it will be approved. This is because you will need a valid reason for why you want to transfer to another university, and the university you want to transfer to will have to determine if your reason is serious enough to be approved.

But, there is no harm in trying, so you can try to apply for transfer; just keep in mind that the chances of approval are very low. Here is a step-by-step guide on how you can switch universities, and a draft letter to help you apply for the transfer. The valid reasons for transfer are included as well: Click here

Hope this helps. We wish you all the best!

Hello Rubel,

For now, there are few universities in Malaysia that offer part-time engineering courses. One of them that do is UTMSpace, which focuses on mostly part-time courses due to high demands of working adults who want to further their studies. 

The approximate fees for a Mechanical Engineering diploma is RM21,450, but it is best to contact UTMSpace directly to determine the fees as there will be extra costs for international students. You can look at the detailed fee breakdown here:

Hello Chin Teik,

Congratualtions on having completed your diploma! As for whether you can shorten your degree time by transferring credits from your diploma, it will have to depend on the particular university's degree module with the module that you have taken with your diploma. You will have to contact the university directly with your transcript so that they can cross reference it with their module in order to determine if your credits are transferable to your degree.

Hope this helps :)

Hello Angel,

Tuition fee means the fees that you will be paying for your classes in university. It does not include your room and board fees. Depending on university websites, the tuition fee could be presented in a yearly form, or semester form. You will have to check with the particular university website to determine the price of the degree you want to enroll in.

The fees for Civil Engineering differs with different universities. It can go from a range of approximately RM45,300 to RM73,000.00 or more. Of course, you will also have to take the course quality and environment into consideration too.

If you are interested in Civil Engineering, here is a sample link on our site of a university that offers the course. You can click the link and fill out the form on the right hand column and our counsellors will get back to you in a while.

Hello Zahiruddin,

Electronics is usually defined as a sub-category of Electrical Engineering. Electrical engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with production and distribution of electricity, while electronic engineers design the components and circuitry that make-up the electronic equipment itself, and ensure that the product functions properly.

By right, it is better to take up E&E in comparison to only Electrical engineering as E&E encompasses both of these qualifications and you will be learning on a broader spectrum.

As for public universities that offer E&E, UMS, UTHM, UiTM and UPM all offer this course, so you do have choices on which university you want to go for.

Hope this helps :)

Hi Zahiruddin,

According to the rankings and specialisations of each public university, we would suggest that you choose UM as it is a university that specialises in engineering. It is also ranked at 22 on the QS World Rankings in regards to engineering and is the best university in Malaysia. USM ranks at 60 while UMS did not make it into the ranking.

Hope this helps.
