As part of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Electrical course requirement, all seventh semester students have to complete three months of compulsory practical attachment in either government or private sector organizations. The Malaysian Engineering Accreditation Council (AEC) has stated that an undergraduate has to undergo at least eight weeks of industrial training as part of their course.
It provides an opportunity for the students to experience real working environment first hand whilst at the same time benefit them in terms of their personal and professional development. Furthermore, feedback gathered from the participating organizations help the students as well as the faculty in improving the character and professional skills of the graduate.
