The Student and Alumni Affairs (HEPA) division in FKAAB provides comprehensive support and services to students for their academic and co-curricular development, such as skills enhancement programs, graduate internships, mobility programs, career guidance, welfare and financial aid. This is to ensure that the faculty is able to produce graduates with balanced academic achievement and personal growth. In addition, HEPA also encourages alumni to maintain a strong relation with the faculty and share their expertise and experience with current students to help them prepare for their future careers. Workshops and networking events are hosted by the faculty through which our alumni participates and serves as industry experts, speak on behalf of their organisations and educate students about their field of work and industry trends.


The faculty regularly organises programs of great benefit for students, such as seminars, courses, workshops, career fairs and industrial talks. Students not only participate in these programs, but also are given the opportunity to organise these programs themselves, under the supervision of HEPA. This acts as an avenue for students to apply their knowledge and demonstrate practical and generic skills.

The faculty not only places its students' academic performance at great importance and as its top priority, but also their personal advancement and well-being. Students are placed in capable hands of skilled and experienced personnel, and are guided throughout their academic endeavour in the university.

Academic Advisory

The Academic Advisory System or Sistem Penasihatan Akademik (PA) is implemented by FKAAB to ensure the students’ academic performance and their welfare are monitored. The system appoints academic staff as academic advisors, with 15–30 students assigned to each academic advisor. Academic advisors are responsible in advising and counseling students in academic matters during their pursuit of education in the university. By having an Online Advisory System, which is known as PA Online, the academic advisory system has been made simpler. With the PA Online system, the academic advisor is able monitor the students’ performance and establish interaction with the students.

FKAAB focuses on the performance of its students, particularly in academics. Activities have been planned in order to help students improve their academic performance and skills. For instance, underachieving students (i.e. those who are under probation, having CPA < 2.0) will be sent to special programs that motivate and assist them to achieve better academic performance. Students benefit from the good practices in learning and effective studying, so that students will be able to cope with their studies and rise above overwhelming pressures of being a student. Qualified counsellors also provide guidance and try to assist students in solving their problems. The university’s Counselling Department (under the Student Development Center) plays its role in assisting the development of cognitive and emotional attributes among students. The department, with the help of the faculty has dealt with many cases, such as emotional, mental, personal, family and financial problems.

The faculty endorses two student bodies that were established to plan and organise activities for students. These societies provide a great opportunity for students to exhibit their generic skills, which the faculty considers as one way to produce all-rounded individuals.

Civil Engineering Club (KKA)

The Civil Engineering Club or commonly known as Kelab Kejuruteraan Awam (KKA) is the main student body that represents all students at the faculty. The primary purpose of setting up this association is to encourage students' involvement in managing and participating in student development activities. PPA also acts as the medium for discussions between students and the faculty management team. Currently, the association is headed and managed by senior students, under the guidance of the faculty's Student and Alumni Affairs (HEPA) unit. This association is officially registered with the university and all FKAAB students become members once they enroll in FKAAB.


Construction Brigade (CB)

Construction Brigade was set up mainly to cultivate community engagement and service among FKAAB students. This club was officially launched by Tan Sri (Dr.) Ir. Jamilus Md Hussin, Chairman of UTHM Board of Directors. Rural development has been the main agenda of Malaysia's economic policies. Thus, the participation of other parties including students of institutions of higher learning. For this purpose, the Construction Brigade aims to have continuous engagement with all community levels to address issues, increase awareness, improve living standards and lead to holistic and sustainable community development, through civil and environmental engineering. The brigade has since been actively involved in community-based programs organised by students.
