21 Lectures Delivered in Malaysia!26th October 2014
I have just returned from a fortnight's intensive teaching visit to the University of Southampton's Malaysia Campus (USMC), at EduCity@Iskandar Nusjaya.
The EEE Students and I at USMC
At the campus, I gave 21 lectures to students over 8 days, primarily on Digital Electronics, as part of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree that we deliver there.
Our four year 2+2 MEng EEE degree will see the students spend the first two years studying in Malaysia before transferring to Southampton, UK, for the final two years. The EEE programme at USMC is identical to that offered at the Southampton campus, including the duplication of the outstanding ECS undergraduate laboratory facilities in Malaysia. As well as core EEE staff based at USMC, many other academic staff from Southampton will be visiting USMC over the coming year to teach on the course.
This is the second year that ECS has welcomed an intake of students at USMC on our Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) degree course. USMC enrolled its first students onto Mechanical Engineering in 2012; now in their third year, these students have completed the Malaysian-based part of their course, and came to our UK campus to continue their education.
