In Summer 2018, students from UNITEN visited SUSU to learn Electric Power Engineering, and Automation and Control Theory. SUSU provides very professional courses in Automation and Control Engineering, Electric Power Engineering, PLC Engineering, Renewable Energy. Classes were taught in English, and the teaching staff was highly professional and motivated. The students were taught to search for new smart solutions that enable more sustainable energy management. On the one hand, students had the opportunity to share and improve their knowledge, while learning about the most recent, cutting-edge developments in power engineering. On the other hand, they were provided with an excellent opportunity to apply their skills. Of course, it was a great case of cooperation between Russian and Malaysian HEIs, and although it was costly, the flight was long and the climate was different from what we got used to in Kuala- Lumpur the students never regretted the experience. We support SUSU as the university deserving to obtain the grant to design the website for promoting their Electric Power Engineering educational program since SUSU provides diverse learning experience (different methodologies of teaching), great campus with rather developed infrastructure very attractive for students, caring staff, and comprehensive educational programs suitable as advanced study in preparation for work in an academic or industrial environment.
We honestly hope and believe that SUSU’s application will be judged favorably, and more innovative site for SUSU’s Electric Power Engineering Program will be designed.
