Electronics classes with comprehensive laboratory training components were developed at the newly established University at Batu Pahat in Malaysia. The students had previously earned their bachelor’s degrees and were pursuing teaching positions at new institutions being built in Malaysia’s rural areas. The curriculum development included process/computer control and real time simulation using the latest microprocessor technology. The laboratory exercises included feedback and control systems, computer control in process and real time simulation. Research activities outside the classroom included computer-based activities and power engineering library research. The gender mix of students was about 50/50. This teaching experience posed a number of questions in terms of the use of existing resources (electronics hardware and software) to direct transfer of previously developed technologies at a new university, or to develop the programs that followed the increase of faculty skills.
