The Foundation in Engineering programme at The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus is an excellent access route to the undergraduate courses offered by the Faculty of Engineering. By enrolling in the programme you will have a direct path towards a range of three-year BEng and four-year MEng undergraduate degree programmes in a number of engineering disciplines. Upon successful completion of the programme, progression to an undergraduate-level programme is automatic and unconditional.
Modules are taught by staff members who specialise in pre-university education, many of whom are active in research. You will therefore experience a gradual transition from secondary to tertiary-level education. You will have opportunities to interact with students and lecturers across the Faculty of Engineering Faculty, and the experience will help you to make an informed decision on the branch of engineering that you would like to pursue.
