The pioneer batch students of the current Diploma programs (DET in Ship Design and DET in Ship Construction and Maintenance) had graduated in June 2007. It is expected that some will take up employment in the industries and some who attain good grades will have the opportunity to continue their study to a higher level. A Bachelor degree program of combined specializations is being planned to cater the requirement of these prospective students. The Government of Malaysia seeks to strengthen the capacity and the capability of the shipbuilding and repair sector under the Third Industrial Master Plan (IMP3) from 2006 to 2020. This is necessary as to reduce the outflow of capital for the acquisition of marine transport products, especially ships. The push to the shipbuilding and repair sector is amongst the strategic thrusts for the long-term growth and viability of the marine transport sector. In order to support and materialize the national industrial perspective in the marine transportation sector, sufficient number of professionals in the combined fields of specializations (naval architecture and shipbuilding) and others are necessary to be produced. Also, in line with the vision of UniKL it is timely for the university to train and develop technical entrepreneurs in the combined specializations of Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding to be able to participate in the relevant activities of the marine industries.


Programme Educational Objectives (PEO)

UniKL graduates who are:

PEO1 knowledgeable, competent, and innovative, which will contribute towards the human capital in the marine related industry;
PEO2 effective leadership and team work skills as well as verbal, non-verbal and interpersonal communication skills to support their role in industry;
PEO3 committed to the importance of lifelong learning and continuous improvement;
PEO4 practice professionalism with ethics and social responsibility;
PEO5 Are capable of embarking on business and technopreneurial activities.
Programme Learning Outcome (PLO)

The students of Bachelor of Engineering Technology (HONS) in Naval Architecture & Shipbuilding, upon graduation will be able to:

PLO1 Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and a marine technology engineering specialization to wide practical procedures and practices in marine related activities.
PLO2 Identify and solve broadly-defined engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using codified methods of analysis specific to the marine related fields.
PLO3 Design solutions for broadly-defined technical problems and assist with the design of systems, components or processes to meet specified need with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations in marine related activities.
PLO4 Conduct investigations of broadly-defined marine related problems; locate and search relevant codes and catalogues, conduct standard tests and measurements.
PLO5 Apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering tools to broadly-defined marine related activities, with an awareness of the limitations.
PLO6 Function effectively as an individual, and as a member in diverse technical teams.
PLO7 Communicate effectively on broadly-defined marine related activities with the engineering community and with society at large, by being able to comprehend the work of others, document their own work, and give and receive clear instructions.
PLO8 Demonstrate knowledge of the societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to marine practice.
