Hi Roshinipriya,

The common entry requirements in most universities for engineering course is to obtain minimum 5 credits (C) in the following subjects: Bahasa Malaysia, English, Mathematics, Additional Mathematics and Physics/Chemistry. It also depends on which engineering course you want to enrol in. Generally, engineering courses would require physics and add maths as the core subjects but if you want to study chemical engineering, you will also need to obtain credits in chemistry as well.

 It is much better to obtain 6 Credits in all the subjects mentioned above as the requirements for each university may vary. For example, University Teknologi Petronas (UTP), the prestigious 5-star SETARA rating university for engineering requires 6 Credits. However, Asia Pacific University (APU) provides engineering degrees accredited by the Washington Accord and requires a minimum requirement of 5 Credits.

Hope this clarifies your query.

Hi Faris,

Firstly, congratulations on your results! :)

This is many student's dilemma so don't worry about it. We're here to help you out. You can start by asking yourself what you want to do in the future and what are your interests. It also helps to know the job demand and salary scale.

Medicine is a very popular course among students. We have a glut of Medical Officers (doctors) but not enough specialists. So if you really want to make it big in the medical industry, we suggest you to specialise in a particular field of medicine such as dermatology, anaesthesia, ENT, orthopaedics, oncology, etc. But it is not easy to achieve this. Here is your pathway after SPM if you want to be a specialist:
SPM --> Pre-u (STPM / Matrics / Asasi / A-Levels / Foundation / Diploma, etc.) (min 1 year) --> MBBS (5 years) --> Housemanship (2 years) --> Compulsory service (1 year) --> Certified Medical Officer --> Postgraduate majoring in specific studies (4-5 years) --> Specialist.
As you can see, the route to become a specialist is no joke. It is takes at least 13 years after SPM but your pay will be good and there is demand.

Now let us explain about engineering. Engineering will always be in demand because we constantly need engineers to build, fix and maintain structures, softwares, mechanics, etc. Almost everything you see is a results of an engineer. This job has emerged as one of the top paying jobs in Jobstreet and the Critical Occupations List in 2017 as written in The Star. If you don't fancy the long study duration and grueling midnight shift of a doctor, then we suggest you to choose engineering.

UPU will close in 4 days. We hope you make a wise choice. All the best! :)

Hi Hasmaan,

First of all, many students are also facing the same issue and it's normal to be confused at this stage. So allow us to guide you to make a decision on this.

1) The subjects you like are the perfect combination for a degree in Chemical Engineering. May we add that engineering courses will always be high in demand so an engineering course is one of the safest courses you can choose to be sure you obtain a job in the future. Electrical Engineering would be good too. View the best and worst careers in Malaysia here: https://afterschool.my/career-builder/best-worst-careers-malaysia-2017

2) The field of aviation branches out to many paths such as aviation management, piloting, aircraft maintenance and aerospace engineering. If you want to work in the aviation field and engineering as well, aerospace engineering would be suitable for you.

3) We don't advice you to opt for piloting because once you get your license, you can only be a Pilot, nothing else. It is not a diploma or degree where you can apply for others jobs if let's say you did not receive a job offer to be a Pilot. The fees are also rather expensive (RM300,000). But if you do get a job, you will get a very high salary. We are not discouraging you from doing what you like but we're just laying out the risks you'll be taking if you study Piloting.

Hope this helps.
