Do you dream of becoming an engineer someday? With the University of Southampton Malaysia (UoSM) those dreams have never been closer to reality! Engineers are behind some of the most phenomenal technological and societal developments we see in the world today. Engineers are also among the most wanted individuals in the job market. In the United Kingdom alone, the demand for engineers is estimated to be up to 182,000 job openings per year! Can you just imagine the huge opportunities that await young future engineers?
Despite all the appeal of pursuing a future in engineering, taking that first step can be daunting. To get you onto the right track, UoSM invites everyone to attend their Open Days on the 14th and 21st of March 2020. During the Open Days, you can get the inside scoop on what it takes to become a successful engineer.
Why the University of Southampton Malaysia?
A founding member of the Russell Group of research-intensive UK universities, UoSM is a forward-thinking institution that upholds innovation and exploration in its education. Testament to that is its listing among the Top 100 in the QS World University Rankings 2020.
This is made possible by the 2+2 model of its undergraduate programmes – which comprise two years of study here in Malaysia, followed by another two years at the main campus in the UK.
It is a beneficial arrangement, as UoSM’s intimate campus setting with high staff to student ratio affords students a conducive environment to build up their knowledge, technical expertise, and networks.
UoSM’s main programme offerings currently include three MEng programmes and a foundation year. The MEng programmes are not to be confused as postgraduate programmes as they are in fact, integrated Masters of Engineering programmes that allow students to graduate with an MEng instead of a BEng in four years. UoSM is one of the few private universities in Malaysia to offer such an arrangement.
UoSM is set to expand this 2021 by opening its newest campus located in EcoWorld Iskandar Puteri, Johor!
