Department of Engineering Foundation and General Studies

The Department of Engineering Foundation and General Studies (EFGS) at College of Engineering (COE), UNITEN offers a broad range of essential skills necessary for aspiring engineers, ensuring a holistic and well-rounded education. The objective of the department is to prepare a comprehensive and dynamic academic pathway designed to provide students at foundation, diploma and degree level with a solid foundation in mathematics and sciences to pursue into engineering bachelor degree programs offered in the college.

Since June 2003, Universiti Tenaga Nasional has been accepting applicants with Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) qualification or its equivalent into a one-year foundation program. Upon completion of the program, students can confidently pursue their chosen engineering disciplines with a firm understanding of the fundamental concepts and practical skills required for success. Our program is fully accredited by MQA, approved by MOE and recognized by other institutions in Malaysia and abroad.

At UNITEN, we employed innovative teaching methodologies and prioritize hands-on learning experiences to complement theoretical knowledge. Our foundation program encompasses a diverse range of subjects, including mathematics, physics, and chemistry, providing students with a solid understanding of the fundamental principles underlying various branches of engineering. Students engage in laboratory sessions, problem solving, workshop and Industrial Guest Lecture (IGL), allowing them to apply their understanding in the real-world scenario. In addition, the curriculum incorporates general studies and computing courses to foster critical thinking, communication skills, and ethical awareness, enhancing students’ ability to contribute positively to society.
