Research and development in the field of photonics technology has been growing and surging at an enormous pace. The technology harnesses light for information carrying and processing, which offers greater speed and capacity over the competing technologies.To date, photonics has been propelled into its present position as the technology of choice and imparted dramatic impact at the heart of many modern industries such as entertainment (e.g. lasers lighting), avionic (e.g. gyroscope), telecommunication (e.g. WDM, MEMS) and to the more recent inception in the field of biophotonics (e.g. biosensor) and it is still rapidly expanding to almost every imaginable field. In view of the benefits it can bring, equipping and updating oneself with the knowledge and latest development in photonics technology is essential with the belief that it would continue to offer enormous scientific and technological opportunities to improve our lives.
At the Faculty of Engineering, Multimedia University, we are aware of the extent of up-to-date knowledge to which a fully competent worker in photonics engineering requires. Therefore, the M.Eng. (Photonics) programme at MMU aims to groom engineers to meet the challenges or even beyond the expectations of the photonics industries. Our academicians will ensure the right blend of the necessary theoretical and practical learning structures that will provide a comprehensive cover in all major aspects of photonics technology.
ENTRY REQUIREMENTS An applicant for entry into the program must have the following minimum requirements:
(a)a Bachelor’s Degree with Honours in Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Physics, Material Science, Manufacturing Engineering or Mechatronics Engineering from MMU or another University or equivalent qualification of an institution as approved by the Senate; or
(b)a Bachelor’s degree in a related field of Engineering and 3 years of relevant work experience.
(c)Any other qualification equivalent to (a) or (b) as approved by the Senate.
ENGLISH REQUIREMENTS The MMU Senate approved the following English Requirement for all postgraduate programs by coursework: “In additions to the academic requirements, an applicant is also required to possess one of the following: (a)a minimum overall TOEFL score of 580; or
(b)a minimum IELTS overall band score of 6.5; or
(c)a credit in 1119 English Examination; or
(d)a minimum score of 580 in Multimedia University’s English Language Proficiency Test; or (e)a minimum MUET overall band score of 4; or
(f)any other qualification which is of equivalent level as determined by the Senate of the university.
All applicants must meet the required English Language requirement before being admitted to the approved program of study.
Upon the recommendation of the Faculty, the Senate may exempt a candidate from the English requirement if the candidate had obtained the Bachelor’s or Master’s degree using English as the sole medium of instruction or as one of the media of instruction. The Faculty shall interview the candidate and recommend to the Senate for exemption, where appropriate.”
An applicant may be required to satisfy the Faculty through an interview and / or examination of their suitability to pursue the program. For further information and application, please contact:
