Currently, my son is studying in KDU (glenmarie campus). He took Foundation in engineering and he does not know whether want to stay in KDU for degree or change to another uni. Any ex-student from KDU mind to share your experience and opinion? or any comments from others?
I also heard my son saying that there are very few students in degree class.
Any recommendation of which uni should he go? if change university, would other college take him in ?

tbh, Malaysian Private University for Engineering isn't the best place to study if it isn't well furnish with all the facilities you need.

If possible go to UTP/MMU if needed. I think only there, there will be sufficient allocation of budget for Engineering focused courses.

Even UCSI I don't think is well equipped enough for Engineering, except from Chemical Engineering side of things.

Again depends what your son wants to study.

Now to hop to another university would be hard. KDU foundation might be tuned for KDU (not sure if other universities would want to take you in with that. Debatable) .

Personally if he wants to change , I would ask him to study till 1st year and then do a credit transfer to another university . This process will take time and additional costs

There's a different between university that you pay regular market pricing and overpriced Premium Tier Pricing.
Engineering in nottingham / monash cost more than RM 90k/year * 3-4 years.
While in IPTS it is less than RM 90k for your 4 years.

UM / USM / UTM are good and all, as most of them have an independent faculty with proper measuring instruments and labs to conduct experiments.
If you went to poorly maintained one in IPTS. I bet you won't learn anything hands on from there well.

I've personally seen seniors purchased digital multimeters, portable oscilloscopes to 20V DC Power Supply because the campus apparatus was always at fault due to old age and constantly break down due to old age.

So in summary UM/USM/UTM > Monash/Nottingham > UCSI/UTAR facility n equipment wise?
But cost wise Monash/Nottingham > UCSI/UTAR > UM/USM/UTM?

Yes. Pricing for UM / UKM has direct intake for Malaysian with International Pre U Qualifications for RM 90K and 70k for those intended to join.

You also need to judge how the faculty replace and renew their Lab Equipment.

Facility, equipment and lecturer wise is UTP better than UM/UTM/USM?

Uncertain, but based on their photos of their Giant Library. I would say good to go for facilities laugh.gif
Lecturer is totally based on your style or method of learning.
Just visit the campus to be sure laugh.gif
