  • Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs) for Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical – Mechatronics)

    Leave a Comment

    The Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs) are statements that describe the expected graduates’ achievements after a few years of graduation.  Table 1 shows the educational objectives for the programmes offered by Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FKE) and its targets of achievement.


    Table 1: Programme educational objectives and the targets


    FKE has set a five (5) year period after graduation for the assessment of PEO achievement.  Alumni Survey and Employer Survey are two indirect assessments that have been used to measure the achievement of PEOs.  The Employer Survey is meant to obtain feedbacks from the industries on performance of our alumni with respect to the PEOs whereas Alumni Survey is meant to get info about the alumni’s professional development.

    JOHOR BAHRU, 23 November 2017 – An FKE student team has won the grand prize for the degree category at the IOT Hack UTM 2017. The winning team, named ‘RD360’ won the judges over with their product called “MESO”, which functions as a machinery diagnosis and predictive maintenance system. 


    The team comprised 5 FKE students, namely, Jason Lim Ji Chen, Teh Zhi Huei, Chin Linn Kern, Chin Hung Wei and Tay Yee Yang, with Dr Yeong Che Fai acting as the team’s advisor.
    IOT Hack UTM 2017 is a competition organised by UTM Centre For Student Innovation & Technology Entrepreneurship (UTMXCITE) and is to fuel the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship among UTM students.

    The competition took place beginning in early October 2017 where each team was given a one-and-a-half-month period to produce products or services that deployed the ‘Internet of Things’ elements (IoT). Additionally, they also need to emphasize the aspects of product availability or services developed for the market. Each team has been evaluated in terms of products or services, the technology used and the readiness of the product in the market.

    A total of 13 teams have competed in the semi-finals where only 6 teams have been selected to the final. All teams participating in the program consist of Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FKE), Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FKM), Faculty of Computer (FC), Faculty of Bioscience and Medicine (FBME) and Faculty of Architecture (FAB). The teams are RD 360, Ad Libitum, Tensor Flow, Xenon, Chloring and SecurSightLine. However, based on Augmented Reality Predictive Maintenance System, MESO successfully to bring RD 360 team to achieved as the champion of the IOT Competition 2017.

    With the high degree of the data analysis on cloud based on the real-time industry machinery data, MESO can helps the industry practitioner in diagnosis and predictive faults maintenance. And, the Remote Augmented Reality Maintenance System function significantly ease the technicians and vendor in troubleshooting machinery problem and increase the efficiency. Thus, in the Revolution of Industry 4.0, MESO will definitely play an outstanding role in the future industry.

  • Silicon Nanowire Arrays for Thermoelectronic Power Harvesting

    Leave a Comment

    Thermoelectric devices are commonly composed of a bismuth-tellurium compound which is expensive and have limited resource. Alternatively, silicon, a semiconductor may be a prominent material in thermoelectric devices. However, high thermal conductivity in bulk Si affects the thermo-electric efficiency. On the contrary, the nanostructured Si i.e. nanowires can be used in enhancing thermoelectric properties.


    Researchers from Process Tomography Research Group & Instrumentation (PROTOM-i), the research arm of UTM Faculty of Electrical Engineering in their research, investigate the performance of Silicon Nanowire Arrays (SiNWAs) and bulk Si material as thermoelectric power.

    SiNWAs as an element in power harvesters utilize green technology in which there are solid-state parts that are able to increase the longevity of a power harvesting device, while its non-toxic, emissions-free and noiseless characteristics encourage a healthier environment. Inexpensive and commonly found silicon material, and a simple fabrication technique without any requirement of expensive tools to build SiNWAs power harvesting device promote economic advantages to the manufacturers and end-consumers.
