The University of Southampton has a global reputation for academic excellence, and we have established a branch campus within the EduCity development in Iskandar Malaysia to enable more students to experience our world-class education.
The University has had the privilege of educating international students from all over the world for over 50 years at our Southampton campus. We are fortunate to enjoy long-standing links with Malaysia that span many disciplines and levels of education and research.
At Southampton we are number two for electrical and electronic engineering and in the top 15 for mechanical engineering, in the UK, according to The Guardian University Guide 2018. We are the premier university for aeronautics and astronautics, encompassing a broad range of disciplines in the field of aerospace, currently ranked number five in The Complete University Guide, 2018.
Our split campus (UK and Malaysia) degree programmes offer the chance to gain a unique ‘Southampton’ education for the first two years in Malaysia combined with the final two years at a world-class research-centred university in the UK. You will graduate with a degree from an internationally recognised university and gain a truly global education experience.
University of Southampton Malaysia’s premier undergraduate MEng Mechanical Engineering, MEng Aeronautics & Astronautics and MEng Electrical & Electronic Engineering programmes allow students to study using some of the latest research facilities and equipment in the world and put the theory they learn into practice to deliver real results. All programmes have been approved by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).
