master vs Gred 41

Hi!! Im goona tell about master study and Gred 41 in this entry.. since Ilah is intend to further study, while Ina juz attended Gred 41 exam today. Both of them were study at UTM and had graduated same time with me but differ cos, ila in Mechanical Industry, Ina in Mechanical Production n me in Mechanical Marine Technology..

Ilah had worked at Flextronic for 6 months I guess, after finished study, b4 convocation, and now she is working at Panasonic Malaysia for almost 1 year.. she had a good job, income n future hah?? But why she intends to further? Biasa la kn.. time blajar dulu stress ngn assignment n project, rs mcm nk keje cpt2.. now dah keje stress ngn work load, n rs zmn bljar jgk yg syok.. yeah.. that’s right.. even though im doing master but its not like b4.. having a class n frens.. minat org tu.. usya org ni..huhu.. now I juz sit in ofis make a research or design job if im in a good mood.. or else juz spent the whole day surfing the internet.. huhuh.. ayoyo ni sudah byk merepek.. lets back to the topic..

These are what I know about master at UTM. x taw la sm ke tak ngn u lain.. rs lbh ckit kurang je..also can refer here. There are two types of registration, full time and part time.. ade 3 modes of study:

-Research
The Master's or PhD candidate by research is supervised by a lecturer (or a panel of lecturers) from the “Graduate Faculty”. The directed research work introduces candidates to the processes by which new knowledge is developed and applied accordingly. In the case of panel supervision, co-supervisors may come from the the industry. The academic progress of a candidate is assessed through a research progress report submitted at the end of each semester. The degree is awarded based on an an examination (viva voce) of the thesis submitted by the candidate on completion of study.

-Taught course
The candidate must complete a minimum of 30 credits, and must obtain a final academic grade of at least 3.0 CGPA. The minimum 30-credit taught course consists of several subject modules including faculty compulsory, faculty electives, a University elective module and a Master's project. Each module normally carries 2 or 3 credits, and assessment is by examinations and assignments. The Master's project (equivalent to a 4 - 7 credits subject), to be completed in one or two semesters, is assessed through a research proposal seminar and a final project report. The programme by taught course, which is designed to give deeper understanding of some more advanced topics in related disciplines, is only for the Postgraduate Diploma and Master's Programmes

-Combination of taught course and research
The candidate must complete a minimum of 30 credits, and must obtain a final academic grade of at least 3.0 CGPA. The minimum 24-credit taught course consists of several subject modules including faculty compulsory, faculty electives and a University elective module. Each module normally carrie 2 or 3 credits, and assessment is by examinations and assignments. The Master's dissertation (equivalent to a 10-credit subject), to be completed in one semester, is assessed through a research proposal seminar and a final project dissertation...

the hardest is by research of course.. ye la u need to do a research by urself n only get a little guide from supervisor.. kalau mls mmg susah la.. the best part is no need to go to class.. a ‘must subject’ to be attend are Research Methodology during mid sem break.. attend a 3 days course n pass the subject.. and U elective subject.. plh la subjek ape yg dsdiakan.. no test n final exam.. sgt sng kn.. the minimum time to accomplish master study is 2 sem, and max 6 sem.. but its depends on the course u take.. For engineering the min time is 4 sem. biasanye by research wt project lecturer with paid.. project tu ade peruntukan utk master or Phd student.. which called Research Student Grant (RSG). And the amount of allowance also depends on the project’s allocation.

so miss Ilah.. dpt cr lubang mane2 x.. good luck ok!!

About Gred 41.. xde ape sgt pon.. n x taw byk sgt pon.. rs nye lepasan degree n above sume under Gred 41.. ina exam smlm utk jwtn Penguasa Kastam, PTD ngn ape ek?? x ingt lak.. ssh sbnrnye nk masuk gomen ni.. tp tgk rzki la.. ade yg blaja x terer mane tp BI superb dpt je jd PTD.. starting je dah RM2.2k.. yg penting usahan tawakal la..

mm some info about a work i had done b4.. Pegawai Penyelidik or Research Officer (RO).. RO and RA are different.. soo much different ok!! RO ni gred Q41.. anybody who hold a degree can become a RO.. tp thp gj lain la.. kalau degree in engineering gj starting P1T3.. degree in since starting gj P1T2.. the difference between these two are not so much.. but from this u can see which is better right?? access SPA for more info..

good luck to all frens which had SPA exam today, eon too..
