Traditionally, the companies engaged in design and manufacturing form teams - usually made up of mechanical, electrical, and computer engineers and technicians focusing in their own specific area with little insight into the requirements of the other disciplines. However in today's vast global marketplace of emerging products, nearly every new invention either includes mechanical and electrical components or relies on them in the manufacturing process. UniKL MSI in Electromechanical Installation & Maintenance program bridges this gap with an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving in a design and manufacturing environment where the challenges are both mechanical and electrical. The Diploma of Engineering Technology in Electromechanical Installation & Maintenance programme at UniKL MSI prepares graduates with the technical skills for rewarding careers in their chosen discipline: the application, installation, manufacturing, operation and/or maintenance of electrical/electronic systems. Other than instructing students in the latest electrical and electronic technology, computer application software, laboratory equipment, and the operation of electronic systems, the programme also exposes them to critical thinking skills, analyzing and solving technical problems and the use of information acquisition tools.
