Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Water Engineering and Energy) with Honours
Sarjana Muda Teknologi Kejuruteraan (Kejuruteraan Air dan Tenaga) dengan Kepujian

The current scenario almost 77% of workforces in water engineering have only spm-level education or lower resulting difficulties for transition to high income industry, referred from ‘Laporan Ekonomi 2009 / 2010, Kementerian Kewangan”. The objective of the program is to enhance skill and knowledge for existing workforce in water engineering sector for high income skilled workers. The program also supports the transformation of national education system to industry led High Technical and Vocational Education and Training (HTVET). The proposed program also can create entrepreneurship opportunity to graduates in water engineering sector, hence increase in number of technopreneur companies in water engineering sector. Based on data from Program Transformasi Ekonomi EPP11 NKEA 1, the potential for new business segments and entrepreneurship is about RM5.7 Billion for a small hydropower scale. The growth of annual investment in water engineering sector can be increase to RM1 Billion by 2025.

The main focus of the programme on design, monitoring, operation and maintenance of water engineering specific for hydropower and energy system:

  • Design and implement of projects involving hydropower generation, such as electromechanical equipment and transmission systems and civil engineering facilities,
  • Operate and monitor equipment performance and to make necessary adjustments to ensure optimal performance.
  • Perform equipment maintenance and repair as necessary according to safety, health and environment standard requirement.
Career Information

Graduates from the BET Water Engineering and Energy program have the opportunity to work with government as a scientist and policy maker involved in hydropower and energy development. Also, in educational institutions, environmental management, and private companies such as follow:

  • Hydropower industries
  • Energy and renewable energy industries
  • Water management industries (in irrigation, drainage, flood protection, and river basin)

The graduates may further their studies at the local universities or international universities in related programme, i.e.: Hydropower Engineering Technology, Energy and Renewable Energy Engineering Technology, Hydrology Engineering Technology, and Water Resources Engineering Technology.

The marketability of the program is enhanced by offering courses that emphasize the development of skilled human capital as competent skilled workers, in line with IR4.0 standard and industry requirements.
