"When MMU start up during 1997, its leading edge computer lab/campus and
open environment does cultivate a lot of student including myself to excel in different
area, be it engineering, finance, startup business, etc.
I benefit a lot from what I have learned from MMU, especially in my final year project
and my involvement in National Semiconductor Competition, where I have chance to apply
the theory and technical knowledge that I have learned in my studied and apply them into
real practical usage. The debug methodology and project management skills that I learned
during project development still benefit me even in today work environment.
My current job is Platform Validation lead in AMD Shanghai. Main job function is to lead
the validation team to provide thorough validation for AMD APU (Accelerated Processing
Units) platform and ensure a stable and high quality AMD system launched time to market.

"“Throughout the years at Faculty of Engineering MMU, apart from chasing academic
excellence, students are inspired to become people who can bring a better life to this
world. It changed my perspective of this profession – we are not merely engineers who
get things done as instructed, but we can also be the leaders who will create a better
quality of life for our future generations. I am very proud to be an FOE Alumnus!”

"I am now a PhD candidate in the Integrated Power Electronics Laboratory, at the Hong Kong
University of Science and Technology, one of the leading higher institutions in Asia.
Based on the experience and qualification I received from MMU, I am privileged to be
awarded the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship by the Research Grant Council of Hong Kong. The
scholarship allows me to further study in this expensive city, without financial worries.
The EE course syllabus in MMU is reasonably designed according to industrial need and
constantly revised. Unlike EE course in other local institutions, EE course in MMU
includes many programming subjects which are instrumental to modern electronics. Final
year subjects are crafted based on the latest know-how required by the industry. For
example, industrial standard IC design CAD tools are used in the teaching so that student
can get prior hands-on experience, to prepare themselves for their upcoming working life.
The English language environment in MMU is excellent as the student body is greatly
diversified. MMU provides the right cultural setting for students to polish their
intercultural communication skills. Such ability is getting more and more sought after as
the world becomes ever globalized.

"I am currently studying M.Phil in Electronics and Computing Engineering in the Hong Kong
University of Science and Technology (HKUST), one of the top Universities in Asia. Many
of my peers are surprised as I graduated from Multimedia University (MMU), a private
university so young without long and prestigious history. Yet, I would argue, being
young is actually one of MMU biggest advantages. MMU electronics course has been designed
to provide strong fundamentals and always being updated to keep up with the industry.
For instance, parallel processing course has been introduced when the multi-core processor
has just started became the trend in the market during my degree years. When I worked in
Intel Penang Design Center and now studying in HKUST, I cannot help but appreciate the
design of the course as it has given me a great starting point before working on the
latest processor or the cutting edge research. I could not be the same person as I am
now if I have not chosen MMU for my undergraduate study and I would never regret my decision.

"I graduated from MMU Cyberjaya in June 2011. I was awarded with a first class honors in
Electronics Engineering. Strategically located at the heart of the developing Cyberjaya,
MMU fits into the profile of the city of intelligence. Far from busy street and the fast
paced city, the serene environment provides absolute concentration required for both
academic excellence and character development.
Being a first class university, MMU is equipped with sufficient facilities that yield
potential positive outcomes. In collaboration with big industry players, the university
provides an excellent platform for career exposure. Dedicated staffs are ready to coach
students whenever needed most.
My final year project, in conjunction with Innovate Malaysia Design Competition 2011,
was chosen as one of the three champions. This success was followed by the publication
of a journal paper in the 15th WSEAS Int. Conf. on COMPUTERS (July 15-17, 2011). I am
glad that my effort is recognised and even shortlisted in the MsC Malaysia APICTA Awards
2011 as the Best of Tertiary Student Project in Creative Multimedia. Here, I would like
to express my gratitude to my supervisors for their commendable support and encouragement
for the completion of my project with perfection.
Being in MMU is not about securing a certificate, is about modeling yourself to blend
into the ever fast-paced evolution of knowledge. I highly recommend MMU as the place to
complete your tertiary education. You will find that with all those benefits MMU offers,
you could effectively accelerate your learning and enjoy your studies there.
