The Aol­lodGnD are proDrammes oAAered bf the De­part­ment oA Com­putGnD:

• Cer­tifi­cate in In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy

• Di­ploma in 3D An­i­ma­tion and Mo­tion Cap­ture

• Di­ploma in Com­puter Stud­ies

• Di­ploma in Games Tech­nol­ogy

• Ad­vanced Di­ploma in Cre­ative Me­dia DesGDn (VG­sual EAAects)

• Bach­e­lor of Com­puter Sci­ence (Hons)

• Bach­e­lor of Com­puter Sci­ence (Hons) in Com­puter and Net­dorI Tech­noloDf

• Bach­e­lor of Com­puter Sci­ence (Hons) in Games ProDram­mGnD

• Bach­e­lor of In­for­ma­tion Sys­tems (Hons)

The last four cour­ses are val­i­dated by the Univer­sity of Lin­coln (UK) and upon suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the pro­gramme, grad­u­ates are awarded two de­gree cer­tifi­cates.

Most stu­dents who have grad­u­ated from the Com­puter Sci­ence de­gree pro­gramme go into ca­reers in the soft­ware in­dus­try, ex­tend­ing from small and medium com­pa­nies to multi­na­tion­als.

A num­ber of grad­u­ates have con­tin­ued their stud­ies at uni­ver­si­ties while oth­ers en­tered the gov­ern­ment ser­vice and teach­ing pro­fes­sions.

More than 95% of stu­dents were em­ployed within the first six months af­ter grad­u­at­ing.

Ca­reer talks and walk-in in­ter­views

On-cam­pus ca­reer talks and walkin in­ter­views are reg­u­larly con­ducted for grad­u­ates.

For the di­ploma stu­dents, there are new op­por­tu­ni­ties to im­prove the dy­namic learn­ing with Or­a­cle Univer­sity’s e-Kit Stu­dent Guide on LVC (Live Virtual Classes) and Mi­crosoft Tech­ni­cal As­sis­tant (MTA) ex­am­i­na­tions.

The de­part­ment has also ini­ti­ated EC-Coun­cil’s Cer­ti­fied Eth­i­cal Hacker (CEH-V9) ex­am­i­na­tions for di­ploma-level stu­dents.

In short, if a stu­dent joins the Di­ploma in Com­puter Stud­ies or Di­ploma in Games Tech­nol­ogy, they will grad­u­ate with pro­fes­sional cer­ti­fi­ca­tions that re­ally stand out from other IT grad­u­ates.

The De­part­ment of Com­put­ing works closely with the man­u­fac­tur­ing and soft­ware in­dus­try as they are com­mit­ted to cre­at­ing a ro­bust and com­plete in­dus­try-driven cur­ricu­lum to suit the stu­dents, ren­der­ing them fit to work right af­ter their grad­u­a­tion. It also in­creases the ad­van­tage of re­search op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Em­ploy­ers in­clude In­tel, Dell, Na­tional In­stru­ments, Mo­torola and more.

KDU Pe­nang’s new in­take com­mences on Aug 21.
