Jalan SS16/1, 47500 Subang Jaya, Selangor Darul Ehsan
A seminar for engineering students - and graduates from the last five years - who are interested in studying at masters level in the UK.
How can a UK postgraduate engineering course help you start a successful career?
A seminar for students and graduates who are interested in studying engineering. Run by Tim Mulroy, principle lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University. Find out more.
This seminar explores how UK universities give you the skills needed in today's industry, and how they teach you these skills. It will also examine how employers can help, using case studies such as Network Rail and Rolls Royce.
It is often said in the press that graduates do not have the skills required by industry. To help give graduates a better chance in the job market, we have worked with top engineering companies to develop courses that give you the right knowledge and skills, enabling you to make a significant contribution to engineering.
Tim Mulroy will discuss how we has worked with national, regional and local employers to produce undergraduate and postgraduate courses whose graduates meet the needs of the industry. The types of courses include electrical, electronic, telecommunications, mechanical and materials engineering.
