HOD’s Message

Welcome to Electrical and Computer Engineering Department!

Our Electrical and Computer Engineering department is vibrant, due to our dynamic academic and technical staff members, as well as our bright students. Our staff members come from highly-reputable universities all over the world, with specialised knowledge of electrical engineering and computing technologies, ranging from wireless communications, signal processing, networking, control and instrumentation, electrical power, internet of things, machine learning, software engineering and cyber security.


Curtin’s Electrical Engineering and Computing students are passionate and active, bolstered by the Curtin Malaysia IEEE student section which plays a major role in our department, supporting us in our student activities. The atmosphere created by Curtin Malaysia IEEE student section and our department has fostered close ties among students, and our students’ participation in our activities, as well as student – staff contact, are exceptional. Furthermore, our top graduates have been hand-picked by leading Industries just after their graduation due to the high quality of teaching and learning in the electrical and computer engineering department in Curtin Malaysia. 


Electrical and Computer Engineering department offers four undergraduate courses, namely Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering)(Honours), Bachelor of Technology (Computer Systems and Networking), Bachelor of Computing (Cyber Security) and Bachelor of Computing (Software Engineering). These courses are a good balance of theoretical background and practical experience throughout the students’ entire study. Students are equipped with the practical skills necessary to begin working effectively as a graduate engineer or technologist immediately after completion. Our graduates have found work all over the world, and are dealing with mega projects, bettering people’s lives. Others have found their passion in smaller, more specialised work. We ensure that our graduates have the understanding necessary to maintain their skills and competencies throughout their professional career. 


On behalf of the Electrical and Computer Engineering department, I welcome our new students and visitors, and wish our current students and graduates well.
