32 KB – Good Standing - Kedudukan Baik KS – Conditional Pass – Kedudukan bersyarat KG – Fail – Kedudukan gagal The status that we all like you to have CPA  2.00 The status that we don’t want you to have 1.7  CPA  2.00 The status that will force you to leave UTM ! CPA  1.7 Obtained 3 KS in a row GPA < 1.0, even though CPA is  1.7 Status of a student Academic system

33 Is CPA > 2.0 good enough ? Classes of Honours Classes of HonoursCPA/PNGK First Class Honours CPA/PNGK  3.67 Second Class Honours (Upper Division) 3.00  CPA/PNGK  3.67 Second Class Honours (Lower Division) 2.00  CPA/PNGK  3.00 Industries will look for graduates with high CPA (typically > 3.0) In 4 years time from now, they will probably demand for higher CPA !

39 SECONDARY SCHOOL/MATRICULATION TO UNIVERSITY TRANSITIONS

40 Secondary School/Matriculation to University transitions Secondary school /MatriculationUniversity Classes are normally small – Teacher memorized students’ names – teacher taught and you listened Read books  do problems  answers are in the books - memorizing Read and understand the concepts  apply the concepts to new problems – its not just memorizing Understand the lectures in real- time – review is in the form of doing exercises and getting the correct answers Don’t expect to understand the lectures in real-time  review lecture notes within 24 – take notes – understand the previous lectures before attending the new ones – be an active listener Larger classes – need to pay more attention – get involve in discussion – don’t make your own conclusion, ask the lecturers

41 Secondary School/Matriculation to University transitions Secondary school /MatriculationUniversity 5 days a week – 6 hours a day, a total of 30 hours per week. Homework 1.5 hours per day = 7.5 hours per week. Total commitment required = 37.5 hours per week. Somebody will monitor your time management. 14 credits. This require 14 x 3 = 42 hours per week outside class. Total commitment required = 56 hours per week. Nobody will force you to study; you have to manage your time. You are in control of your own learning.

42 YOUR ROLE: A UNIVERSITY STUDENT

43 Some tips …. Decide a place to study Favorite corner in library – empty classroom – in your room Try to study regularly in the same place at the same time Review lecture notes within 24 hours of lectures If you choose to study in a group Two heads are better than one Study on your own first – be prepared before joining the group Not too many: 4-6 is good Meet your lecturers Meet the lecturers, introduce yourself – building a rapport can make a difference – make use of the lecturers ! When confused, ask the lecturers – don’t make your own conclusions Your role: A university student

44 Some tips …. During lectures Ask questions during lectures, join the discussion Don’t rely on your memory, take some notes ! Be prepared before attending lectures Be an active listener Learn your lecturer’s style Your role: A university student See your academic advisors regularly Advisors familiar with university policies - ask for their opinions Advisors can offer assistance to almost all academic related matters Regular meeting – less stress and more control

45 Your role: A university student Source: National Training Laboratories Institute for Applied Behavioral Science Learning pyramid

46 YOUR GOAL: AN ELECTRICAL ENGINEER

47 Your goal: An electrical engineer Electrical Engineers: A profession that uses science, technology and problem-solving skills to design, maintain products, services and information system Attributes of a good engineer … Problem-solving skills Good Communication skills Team-working Technical knowledge (electrical engineering knowledge) Creative and imaginative To secure for a good job, CPA > 3.0 However, high CPA is NOT the only thing considered …

48 Our program (SEE) is designed to fulfill these requirements: Program Outcomes This is what you will gain when you leave UTM in 4 years time Ability to acquire and apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering Ability to analyze and interpret data Ability to identify, formulate and solve electrical engineering problems Ability to work with modern instrumentation, software and hardware Ability to design a system, component or process to fulfil certain specifications Ability to communicate effectively Ability to function and be productive in a team Ability to recognize the need for, and to engage in life-long learning Understand the impact of the work of engineers on society Understand ethical and professional responsibility Your goal: An electrical engineer

49 Our program (SEE) is designed to fulfill these requirements: Program Outcomes You should be AWARE of these outcomes You SHOULD gain these attributes when you graduated Your goal: An electrical engineer

50

51 Some job titles for an engineer: Design Engineer Project Engineer Engineering Specialist Chief Engineer Quality Control Engineer Software Engineer Development Engineer Research Engineer Systems Design Engineer Field Engineer Test Engineer Sales Engineer TNBTelekomMotorolaIntelAlteraToshibaPanasonic etc, etc. Your goal: An electrical engineer
