Our Engineering Doctorate (Eng.Doc) programme is aimed at developing individuals who are able to conduct research at doctoral level by tackling real-life industrial problems and implement innovative solutions in which significantly contribute to the business performance of their companies.
Engineering Doctorate (Eng.Doc) is a mixed mode doctoral programme that embed the industrially-focused area into research with an aim of solving real-life-work-based problems. It combines research in engineering which incorporates training in business with management skills into developing innovative solutions to technological products or processes.
The Eng.Doc graduates will have equivalent doctoral-level qualification with more industrially-based focused than the conventional Doctor of Philosophy. Research which aimed in solving real problems are able to make decisions inclusive of technical knowledge, business management and opportunity and contribute to innovative solutions

The Eng.D programme consists of two components: taught-course modules and research project. The taught-course components covering topics to enhance candidates’ knowledge and skills in Engineering Business Management (EBM). While, the scope of research project on industry-focused applied-research project, guided by academic and industrial supervisors is aimed at solving real-life-work-based problems innovatively. There are 8 modules that has to be completed by the candidate with a total of 24 credits. Candidates must achieve a minimum CPA of 3.00 for the taught course modules.
While the research projects contribute of 56 credits. This makes a total of 80 credits for the completion of the study. At the end of the study, the candidate must submit a dissertation and undertake an oral examination (viva-voce). The minimum period of study for candidates is 3 years (6 semesters) and a maximum of 8 years (16 semesters).
