Faculty of Engineering Technology (FTK) in University Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) was established on July 2012. The aim of the Faculty is to conduct academic engineering technology programmes which include foundational theory and emphasize on applications of the theory. Currently, FTK is offering several academic programmes at bachelor level. The engineering technology programmes are structured to be more practical biased than the conventional science based engineering degree programme elsewhere. The career prospect of engineering technologist covers a broad spectrum in engineering field from product development, manufacturing, construction, improvement to optimisation of its operational functions.
To implement more practical biased curriculum, students are exposed to practical-based training throughout the 4-year programme with weightage of 60% practical and 40% theory. Practical will be conducted in the form of laboratory works, workshops and industrial training. In addition, FTK students are nurtured to be dynamic, creative and ethical by instilling soft skills throughout the teaching and learning process. Students will be guided by qualified and experienced academicians that are experts and professional in their respective fields. At the end of the programme, students are expected to be dynamically competent to fulfil the ever growing needs and requirements from both community and industries.
