Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In purpose of engineering program accreditation, the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) requires a list of compulsory subjects that need to be incorporated according to respective academic programs. The inclusion of these subjects precisely known as core subjects contained in their accreditation manual is also in agreement with Washington Accord requirement. As for this reason, the Department of Electrical, Electronics and System, Faculty of Engineering and Environmental Built of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia has aggressively implementing steps to improve the program, especially at the course level aimed to obtain full accreditation and achieving excellence. Course improvements will consider important elements such as delivery method, course syllabus, methods of assessment and measurement, generic competency and others taking into accounts suggestions from stakeholders such as Industrial Advisor Panel (LAP), industrial representatives, alumni and students. This study presents and discusses the improvement measures carried out for KKKL3173 Communication Theory course which is a core subject for Bachelor Degree in Microelectronics program. Researchers highlight the activities that have been carried out to enhance the effectiveness of teaching and learning by means of quiz-students pre assessment, projects-ethics, professionalism and collected technical, presentation-improving through open critic, technical visit, technical seminar, seminar on ethics and professionalism, industrial, embedded laboratory to course, questionnaire/survey.
