Master of Philosophy (Electrical Engineering)


The M.Phil. programme in Electrical Engineering is by full research only. However, the normal period of full-time study requires a duration of 2 years (4 semesters), or up to a maximum period of 4 years (8 semesters).  The M.Phil. candidate is supervised by a graduate faculty lecturer (or by a panel of lecturers). Co-supervisors may come from industry. Prospective graduate students should prepare themselves adequately, both in the fundamental subject matter necessary for advanced work and other branches of learning, so they may conduct quality research and successfully complete their programs.


Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

  1. PEO1: To produce Master graduates with multidisciplinary knowledge needed for designing, integrating and optimizing solutions in Electrical Engineering fields including electronics, communication, mechatronics, power, instrumentation and control.
  2. PEO2: To produce Master graduates who are able to generate new knowledge, idea and techniques in Electrical Engineering fields.
  3. PEO3: To produce Master graduates who are able to function in R&D research team and innovative industrial ventures.
  4. PEO4: To produce Master graduates who are able to consistently perform their responsibilities ethically and professionally.


Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

  1. PLO1: Attain comprehension in specialized knowledge on theories, methods and applications in Electrical Engineering fields including electronics, communication, mechatronics, power, instrumentation and control.
  2. PLO2: Able to demonstrate in-depth proficiency in analyzing and solving problems through relevant analytical methods, simulations, experiments and independent research
  3. PLO3: Able to synthesize engineering knowledge through design and development.
  4. PLO4: Able to plan and perform research undertakings responsibly, professionally and ethically.
  5. PLO5: Able to communicate, and express knowledge and ideas effectively.
  6. PLO6: Able to continue life-long learning and apply technology for the betterment of humanity


Required Courses

M.Phil. students are required to register and pass the following courses

  • Research Methodology course (course code UKEP0010), to be taken once during study. Students are advised to take this course in the first semester of study.
  • One University Elective Course (course code U*** ***3), to be taken once during study.
  • Research (course code MKEE **00), to be taken every semester until the submission of thesis. The progress of a candidate in any particular semester is assessed through research progress reports submitted at the end of each semester.


Semester of study
Research Code
1 MKEE1100  
2 MKEE1200 Proposal defense. Est. on week 9-10.
3 MKEE2100  
4 MKEE2200  
5 MKEE3100  
6 MKEE3200  
7 MKEE4100  
8 MKEE4200 Students who did not submit thesis will be given termination of study status

Note:  Students are allowed to defer study for not more than 2 consecutive semesters due to medical reasons or otherwise. For deferment due to medical, the deferred semester(s) are not counted. For other reasons, the deferred semester(s) are counted. Assume that student A deferred one semester due to personal matter after completing the third semester, he/she would register for MEE3100 after returning to study.


Thesis Submission

The degree is awarded based on a comprehensive oral examination (viva-voce) of the thesis submitted by the candidate on the completion of study. As a part of thesis submission requirement, the candidate must have published a journal/conference/book chapter at the time of thesis submission.
