1 UEEA/UEET/UEEL 3934 Industrial Training 2009 Coordinators:Francis Lau Ng Choon BoonWebsite:(go to Industrial Training, and then Industrial Training for the depart. Of Electrical & Electronic Engineering)
2 Outcome-Based Education (OBE) A set of Programme Outcomes are specifiedIt defines the attributes that the industry expect the graduates to have attained upon graduation.OBE requires that the students demonstrate that they have learnt the required skills and content
3 Industrial TrainingPart of EAC requirements for accreditation of engineering programmes.Employers will expect you to demonstrate a range of practical skills and soft skills.Therefore, students must know the required PO and improve themselves accordingly.ITP is one of the means for the University and the Industry to measure the students’ achievement of the POs.
4 Objective and learning outcomes To expose the student to the industry and to receive practical training under the supervision of qualified staffacquire and apply knowledge of engineering fundamentalsacquire in-depth technical competence in the specific engineering discipline during the industrial trainingdemonstrate problem identification and solving skillapply the relevant references, guidelines and code of ethics related to engineering practicesapply systems approach to design and evaluate operational performanceapply interpersonal communication skill with technical or/and non-technical staff in the work placework effectively as an individual or team playerrecognize the need to undertake life-long learning
5 Sustainable Development Be aware of the current good practices of electrical & electronic engineering for sustainable developmentMinimum impact to the environmentMinimize energy consumptionMinimize use of material and waste
6 Programme ObjectivesProgramme Outcomes describe the attributes that the students are expected to attain at the point of graduation.Programme Objectives describe the career and professional accomplishments that the programme would prepares the graduates to achieve in a few years after their graduation.
7 Programme Objectives of 3E Programme Objectives of EC The graduates of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Programme will use the latest knowledge and techniques in developing, maintaining, servicing, sales and marketing, and research of electrical and electronics technologiesThe graduates of Electronic and Communication Engineering Programme will use the latest knowledge and techniques in design, developing, maintaining, servicing, sales and marketing, and research of electronic telecommunication and technologiesThe graduates will assume technical, managerial and ethical roles effectively in the organizations they work in.The graduates will be involved in the affairs of professional institutions and keep abreast of the nation’s needs and developments, and provide services to the engineering communities and the nation
9 Report & evaluation The industrial training assessment consists of: Report with description of working experience, skills, and knowledgeDaily logbookStudent’s appraisal formReport format must follow Report GuidelinesPass/fail evaluation (passing mark is 50)Submission deadline: 11 Jan 201070%30%
10 Evaluation of ITP Report A. Organization-related Learning Outcome (15%)B. Application of Theory and Soft Skills (15%)C. Presentation Quality of Report (20%)D. Periodic Reports / Logbook (20%)E. Report from Industrial Supervisor (30%)The content of the ITP report shall demonstrate achievement of the 10 Programme Outcomes.

12 Company’s field of industry Companies which offer training relevant to your studiesshould be an engineering or scientific environment (e.g. electrical systems, electronics, communications, computer technology)System design, development, presentation and documentationProject planning, organization, execution and managementMachine operation, troubleshooting, verification, service and repairlearning of technical skills and knowledge
13 How to find a company? Find and obtain the following Address, Contact No., Contact personRefer to the company listSearch InternetSearch newspaper job adsTel. no. search inWalking around office blocksAsk family members, relatives and friends for recommendations
14 Submitting the application Download, fill in, print (use good-quality laser/inkjet printer), and send them in one envelop to your target company:Application letterResumeSupport & reply letter (needs to be certified by the coordinator)FAQNumber of applications limited to 5, for the first month (will be increased in the next month)
15 Company offer Company shall reply back to UTAR If offered, student have to decide to accept or reject within 1 week (please check the notice board & web site regularly)If student accepts offer, sign Indemnity letterNo further change of company allowedUTAR will reply accept/reject to company on student’s behalfYou are allowed to reject up to 5 companies only
