  • The ability to evaluate and respond to opportunities for developing and exploiting new technologies.
Curriculum

DEGREE LEVEL 1

Level 1 modules in this program that provide a foundation for any IT professional include System Analysis & Design, Fundamentals of Software Development, and Introduction to Programming in an appropriate language. More technical knowledge and skills are developed in Operating Systems & Computer Architecture and Introduction to Networking. Modules such as Introduction to Management, Computing & IT in the Workplace and Professional & Enterprise Development provide a foundation for multi-disciplinary education and understanding personal and organisational development. Important and relevant skills for independent learning are introduced throughout the program.

Common Modules

Specialised Modules
  • Computing & IT in the Workplace
  • Introduction to Management
  • System Analysis & Design
  • Fundamentals of Software Development
  • Mathematical Concepts for Computing
  • Operating Systems & Computer Architecture
  • Introduction to Networking
  • Introduction to Databases
  • Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
  • Introduction to C Programming

In addition to the above, all students are also required to successfully complete General Studies modules as stipulated by the Malaysian Qualification Agency, as well as fulfill credit requirements for Co-Curricular Activities.

DEGREE LEVEL 2

Specific technical skills related to Computer Science are developed at this level. Engineering Software & Applications offers an introduction to the concepts associated with data acquisition and system simulation. Data Structures and Concurrent Programming take your application development skills to the next level, while System & Network Administration and Computer Systems Low Level Techniques buile on Operating Systems & Computer Architecture. Option modules allow you to choose to go further into artificial intelligence, networking, and/or multimedia. The emphasis on independent learning continues at this level, and is a particular focus and requirement in Research Methods.

  • Computer Theory

Elective Modules (choose 3)

  • Mobile & Wireless Technology OR System Programming & Computer Control OR Introduction to Virtualization OR Computer Graphics
  • Virtual Computing OR Imaging & Special Effects OR Network Security OR Web Applications

INTERNSHIP (16 weeks)

After the completion of Level 2 students will undertake a short Internship / Industrial Training. This will prepare them for a smooth transition from the classroom to the world of Computer Science.

DEGREE LEVEL 3

The focus of Level 3 is further development of relevant technical skills and the ability to apply these skills to strong critical thinking and analysis. The core modules Algorithmics, Real-Time Systems, and HCI & Usability enhance your system development skills, while Emergent Technology broadens your perspective to include the frontiers of technology. Option modules allow you to enhance skills developed in the previous study of programming, systems & network administration, multimedia, and management. General personal and professional development is enhanced in Project Management, while Innovation Management & New Product Development continues the theme of generating new ideas and creating new products.
