INTI In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity is of­fer­ing a new spe­cial­i­sa­tion in Mo­bile Ap­pli­ca­tion De­vel­op­ment in its Bach­e­lor of Com­puter Sci­ence (Hons) de­gree, which in­cor­po­rates in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure, in­no­va­tive learn­ing and in­di­vid­ual de­vel­op­ment.

“Re­search has shown that mo­bile phones have over­taken the use of per­sonal com­put­ers as the most pop­u­lar way to ac­cess the In­ter­net. Look­ing at re­cent trends, more and more users are us­ing their smart­phones to browse the web, check e-mail, use mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions, so­cial net­work­ing, games, mu­sic and more. Our new of­fer of spe­cial­i­sa­tion in Mo­bile Ap­pli­ca­tion De­vel­op­ment al­lows more stu­dents to be well trained and qual­i­fied to meet the need for mo­bile apps by in­di­vid­ual con­sumers as well as en­ter­prises,” says INTI In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity As­so­ci­ate Pro­fes­sor Goh Poh Kim.

Apart from Mo­bile Ap­pli­ca­tion De­vel­op­ment, stu­dents of the Bach­e­lor of Com­puter Sci­ence (Hons) de­gree can spe­cialise in Dig­i­tal Mar­ket­ing, Net­work and Mo­bile Com­put­ing, Net­work Se­cu­rity and Soft­ware Engineering. They can choose their spe­cial­i­sa­tion from Year Two of the pro­gramme. Strong em­pha­sis is placed on ap­plied knowl­edge with 50% of the cur­ricu­lum based on prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tion.

Em­ployer projects as well as in­tern­ship with or­gan­i­sa­tions such as In­tel Tech­nol­ogy, Sony, CSC Malaysia, Khind Hold­ings, Sil­ver­lake Sprints and oth­ers pro­vide strong in­no­va­tive learn­ing and in­di­vid­ual de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The Bach­e­lor of Com­puter Sci­ence de­gree is fully val­i­dated by Bri­tain’s Coven­try Univer­sity and dual awards are con­ferred on grad­u­ates by Coven­try Univer­sity and INTI In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity.

Ranked among the Top 50 Bri­tish uni­ver­si­ties by the Guardian Univer­sity Guide 2013, Coven­try Univer­sity was the win­ner of Times Higher Ed­u­ca­tion’s 2011 awards for “En­tre­pre­neur­ial Univer­sity of the Year” and “Out­stand­ing Stu­dents Sup­port”.

“Mo­bile Ap­pli­ca­tion De­vel­op­ment ex­poses stu­dents to the lat­est trends in mo­bile plat­forms such as iOS and An­droid as well as the lat­est tools avail­able for mo­bile de­vel­op­ment. This spe­cial­i­sa­tion is de­signed to equip stu­dents with the fun­da­men­tal the­o­ries and prac­ti­cal skills to de­velop mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions in var­i­ous plat­forms.

“Im­mer­sion in real em­ployer projects will make stu­dents’ tran­si­tion to the ac­tual work­place a smooth if not seam­less one,” shares INTI In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity Fac­ulty of Sci­ence, Tech­nol­ogy, Engineering and Math­e­mat­ics As­so­ci­ate Pro­fes­sor Jas­mine Low.

Over 80 or­gan­i­sa­tions, in­clud­ing soft­ware houses and multi­na­tional com­pa­nies have come on board to work with stu­dents on em­ployer projects that help stu­dents de­velop prob­lem solv­ing, col­lab­o­ra­tion, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and crit­i­cal think­ing skills as well as gain ex­pe­ri­ence and readi­ness for global em­ploy­a­bil­ity. In re­turn, INTI stu­dents pro­vide fresh, in­no­va­tive and ap­pli­ca­ble ideas and so­lu­tions that or­gan­i­sa­tions are able to adopt and ap­ply in their busi­nesses.
