Computing professionals are the architects of the new information age. Affordable high-tech devices have created an environment rife with both challenges andopportunities. With these challengescome great opportunities;opportunities waiting to be exploitedby highly-trained computer sciencegraduates. Your learning is supportedby a number of activities, which mayinclude lectures, laboratory sessions,small group tutorials, problemclasses and coursework. Researchrelatedproject work is an importantpart of all our degrees. Computerscience constantly changes and ourprogrammes are taught by peoplecarrying out world-class cuttingedgeresearch, which influences ourcurriculum. This provides a strongset of core topics and a choice ofoptions in both fundamental andapplied computing.
About the School
Computer Science has the distinction of being a scientific discipline that has engendered some of the most profound and far-reaching social and economic changes since its inception in the early 1950s. What’s more, it is a discipline whose pace of development is accelerating as we become more reliant on computers in our day-to-day lives. It is hard to think of an area of human endeavour in which computers don’t now play an integral role.
Computing professionals are the architects of this new information age. The advancement and proliferation of affordable high-tech devices has created an environment rife with both challenges and opportunities. With these challenges come great opportunities; opportunities waiting to be exploited by highly-trained computer science graduates. Our degrees
in computer science and software engineering produce highly
employable graduates and provide the basis for rewarding and lucrative careers.
The School of Computer Science undertakes world-class research, and our teaching staff at the Malaysia Campus consist of both local and international academics. Our research was ranked in the top 10 per cent of UK Institutions in the latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), with 80 per cent of our research activity rated as world class or internationally leading.
The main focus of our research lies in the development of various intelligent systems and computational techniques with applications to a range of real-world problems. Our multidisciplinary research includes areas in computational intelligence, computer vision, human-computer interaction, operational research and simulation and modelling. The research conducted within the school is generally encapsulated by the aims and scope of the Computing in Health (CiH) research group, which is linked to several University-wide priority areas. CiH complements the research themes pursued at the UK Campus, but also takes full advantage of the specific research expertise of staff involved in cross-campus co-supervision of research projects.
