It depends on what you are looking for. I need to rush home now, so I'll come back to this thread later.

Preferably Mechanical or Aeronautical Engineering..


Btw I'm a STPM leaver, i got UTP offer for interview.

I'm wondering if i get engineering courses in UTP and local uni, like USM or UKM or UM, which should I go?

Hmmm... if you are thinking about Aeronautical Engineering then UTP is definitely out of the question. If you are thinking about Mechanical Engineering, then UTP is an option.

Look, first of all, you need to decide whether you want to go into an IPTA or an IPTS. If you were to ask me to choose between an IPTA and IPTS, and if I have to fund my own studies, I would stick to IPTA. The reason? Well, there isn't much difference in the course syllabus for the same degree in different universities. Whether you graduate from USM, UKM, UM or UTP, your degree is still a Bachelor's degree which is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Council and the Washington Accord. Besides, I would enjoy much lower tuition fees if I study in an IPTA.

However, options may change if I am offered a scholarship or a sponsorship. And if I do have the plan to one day venture into the oil and gas industry, then I would consider UTP. This university has subjects related to the oil and gas industry that are offered as a university requirement. The purpose of having these subjects is to expose students to the world of oil and gas. You will not be an expert in oil and gas as a Mechanical Engineer, but you wouldn't be so lost when you meet people well-versed in it and speaking in oil-and-gas terms.

I am unsure about IPTA, but UTP is also well known for the marketability of its students. Big names like Shell, Schlumberger, Baker Hughes, etc. often come to UTP during its career exhibitions to promote their companies, and at the same time perform on-the-spot interviews to students who are seeking for a job placement after graduation, or just for internship. If you want oil-and-gas companies to be an option for your future career, then you may want to consider UTP. Of course, this doesn't mean that as a USM, UKM or UM graduate, you can't go into oil and gas.

So, what are your priorities, really?

Is Nottingham worth the money? People can say that the education quality is good, but how much better is it compared to other universities?

Hope somebody can offer some advice. Thanks.

As far as I am concerned, it doesn't matter whether you study engineering in Malaysia, in Australia, in the UK, in Singapore, in the US, or anywhere else for that matter. If it's just the undergraduate degree that you are looking for, all are the same. Perhaps the way lecturers teach will differ from one institution to another, and if you were to study abroad, you would definitely have a different experience as compared to those who studied locally.

But if postgraduate studies in the future isn't want you have in mind at all, then perhaps going abroad would be a very much welcomed opportunity (that is, if you have the money or the sponsorship); it may very well be your once in a lifetime opportunity. Otherwise, it's never too late to go abroad when you want to do postgraduate studies, and it makes better economical sense.

@henry_yew:

Well... I don't know.. lol.. I think i prefer studying in IPTA..

Cause the UTP admission does not come with a scholarship, and i have to apply for it through external organisations or UTP.

And is it real that UTP has very few Chinese students? Besides studying I hope i can find better social group as well...
