Introduction to PSM

 

Definition1

The Final Year Project (FYP) is a subject that must be completed by final year students as a requirement to receive the bachelor of engineering degree. In this subject, the students will be given two semesters to work on a task that is related to their field of interest. Students are expected to do their work independently most of the time, but their progress will be monitored closely by their supervisors. At the end of the project, students will have to document their work in a thesis which must be hard bounded and submitted to the Faculty.

Aim1

The aim of the FYP is to give students opportunity to apply the knowledge that they have gained while studying in FKE to solve practical engineering problems. By doing so, it is hoped that the students will gain knowledge and experience in solving problems systematically thus when they graduate, they will be ready to work as reliable and productive engineers.

Objectives1

At the end of the FYP, students should be able to:-
i. articulate and utilize academic and practical experiences in carrying out engineering projects.
ii. think objectively, analytically and critically when looking at an engineering problem and be able to solve it systematically.
iii. perform relevant work independently when working in a project.
iv. convey their findings and ideas effectively either orally or in written form.
