Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment is dedicated to creating a holistic education experience for students at SEGi University. Faculty members are handpicked for their experience in both academia and in the industry. Our faculty members possess vast experience in their specialisation and keen to transfer knowledge in the most innovative ways. While most lecture class sizes are huge, tutorials are delivered in small groups (not more than 40 students) to ensure maximum attention to each student.
