Diploma of Engineering Technology in Marine Engineering

Type
Short-cycle tertiary education (ISCED 2011 level 5)
Language

English

Duration 6 semesters
Cost Depends on Nationality.

There are about 22,000 engineering professionals and semi-professional currently employed in marine and other related industries in Malaysia. This figure allows for a pessimistic growth of 8% to 10% inclusive of vacancies created due to workforce retirement and migration to other industries in every five years. A total of more than 2,000 professionals and semi-professionals are to be produced to meet the demand of the marine and the related industries in Malaysia. However the actual demand in the five year period is expected to be much more taking into account those intending to become individual technical entrepreneurs seeking employment overseas.

The objectives of the programme are:

  • To produce semi-professionals, competent in the field of marine engineering technology to meet the current and future demand of the marine and its related industries in Malaysia as well as abroad.
  • To train and develop technical entrepreneurs in the various sectors of the marine industry.
