Is it because a bachelor or master in engineer doesn't really study in details for the theory part, that's why is not eligible to go into PhD ?
Then can a engineer go into research field ?
I suggest you check out some other universities yourself to get that understanding. A search in the Internet reveals a lot of answers that are already available.
But if you are going for your Bachelor's degree now, it's best to take things one at a time, i.e. don't worry about Master's and PhD until you're ready to find out more. It doesn't mean you should forget about doing postgraduate studies if you want to, but don't rush your fences.
And no, your reasoning in the second paragraph is not the answer to why some people with MEng. degree are not eligible to apply for the PhD programme. Again, that's something for the future for you to find out.
As Frank said, right now you ought to make sure that your degree is accredited. If you're going to do an engineering programme in Malaysia, make sure it is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) - there is a list in its website; you can go and look it up yourself. If your programme is not listed in the EAC list, then most likely that programme is NOT an engineering course, or that it is not accredited. If it is not an engineering course, it might be accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) instead.
If you're studying abroad, make sure it's accredited by an accreditation agency recognized by the foreign country's government. If it's an engineering programme that is accredited by that agency and should the country where you're studying is a signatory of the Washington Accord, then you ought to have no problems coming back to Malaysia to work, if that's what you plan to do.
