The Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FKE), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia teaching and learning processes was duly certified to ISO 9001:2000. One of the top management commitments is to meet Engineering Accreditation Council of Malaysia (EAC) program accreditation requirements. EAC adopts the American Board of Engineering and Technology 2000 (ABET) principles which promote outcome based education (OBE) learning process. OBE calls for the evaluation of the course learning outcomes (LO) as specified in each Course Outline. Performance Measurement has been largely dependent on students' performance in carrying out tasks such as tests, quizzes or submission of assignments. Evaluation on the performance ...

Since 2003, Fakulti Kejuruteraan Elektrik, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Skudai subscribed to good practices as required by their teaching and learning processes which was duly certified to ISO 9001:2000. It was developed based on the American Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) requirements which promote the Outcome Based Education (OBE) learning process. Collaborative and cooperative learning (CCL) technique was applied to inculcate the necessary generic skills attributes. A series of assessment were designed to validate such learning outcomes. Final exam questions were evaluated using Bloom’s Taxonomy. The tests employed include index of difficulty and index of discrimination. This ...

At the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Skudai campus, Communication System is a core subject offered to senior students of the Electrical Engineering Undergraduate Program. The student enrolment is the largest. This paper describes the continual quality improvement performance measured for the learning process of the students. Cooperative Learning (CL) technique has been successively introduced, a serious continuous effort in implementing alternative teaching method to enhance student learning process and inculcate generic skills that have been noticeably lacked among students and recent graduates. It was found that all CL classes achieved impressive 100% passes, with >80% achieved a ...
