Here are some pictures of UTP. Enjoy!
This is a night view of the Chancellor's complex where the graduation hall, library and administration is located
This is an inside view of the Graduation Hall
The following 2 pics are views of the New Academic Blocks from different angles. We have 14 new blocks
Here are some images of the EE Labs
This one shows the helipad trainer in the control sys lab
This is a robotic arm we have in the Robotics and Automation Lab
Here's a pic of the Power Systems Lab. The yellow 'box' is a trainer that simulates all components in a power tx sys i.e. tx line, generator, loads
This last one is a pic of the analog electronics lab. You can see the oscilloscopes, function generators and power supply stacked neatly.
Most of the pics I have are for the big stuff. We do have small electronic stuff as well like development kits for DSPs, FPGAs and microprocessors.
One more bit that I should add about the lecturing staff here. We have a community of expatriate lecturers from India, Pakistan, South Africa, Vietnam, Sudan etc.. The profs from India mostly come from the reknowned Indian Institute of Technology (IITs). Of course, the majority of the teaching staff are locals but almost everyone has had some study experience overseas i.e. a degree from UK, US or Australia
To maintain quality, our exam papers are vetted by an international panel of experts. Few of these external examiners, as they are called, for this year are:
Prof David James Murray-Smith (EE)
Univ of Glasgow
Prof Colin D Grant (Chem E)
Univ of Strathclyde
Prof Halim Gurgenci (Mech E)
Univ of Queensland
Prof Kuniaki Uehara (IT)
The university also has an Academic Advisory Council consisting of several profs again:
Prof Gregory Farrington
President of Lehigh Univ, US
Prof Sung-Kee Chung
Former President of Pohang Univ, Korea
Prof. Otto C.C Lin
VP, R&D, Hong Kong Univ of Science & Tech.
Prof Armin Seiler
Chair of Business Mngment, ETH Zurich
Prof. Gordon Moore
Univ of Calgary, Canada
UTP has very strong links to PETRONAS so if anyone is interested to work for PETRONAS, this is a good place to study. A petroleum engineering specialization for BEng and MSc has just been introduced within the past 2 years: it is partly taught by former PETRONAS engineers who have 15 to 20 years experience in the Oil & Gas Industry, all very experienced and hands-on lecturers.
