BSC (HONS) IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY WITH SPECIALISM IN MOBILE TECHNOLOGY

This programme is specifically designed to provide:

  • Familiarity with a broad range of information technologies and how they are used.
  • The ability to specify and manage the implementation of a range of mobile communications systems to support various activities.
  • The ability to design, develop, and implement viable mobile technology solutions using appropriate platforms, tools, and techniques.

LEVEL 1

The IT degree and all of its specialisms have similar modules in Level 1. Modules 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. Introduction to Management and Computing & IT in the Workplace provide a foundation for multidisciplinary education and understanding personal and organisational development. Important and relevant skills for independent learning are introduced throughout this level.

 

Common Modules

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

Specialised Module(s)

  • Interactive Media & Web Design Technology
  • Introduction to Object-Oriented 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.

 

LEVEL 2

Further in-depth analysis and design skills are developed here through System Development Methods, Web Applications, and Computer Games Design. Specific computing skills are developed in Object Oriented Development with Java, Programming Concepts in C++, and System Programming & Computer Control. Specific technical knowledge and skills related to Mobile Technology are enhanced at this level through the Fundamentals of Mobile Computing and Mobile & Wireless Technology modules. Along with independent learning, a common theme in all APU ICT awards is fostering creativity and innovation in individuals and teams. These themes are the specific focus of the Creativity & Innovation and Research Methods for Computing & Technology modules.

Common Modules

  • Creativity & Innovation
  • Object Oriented Development with Java
  • Probability & Statistical Modeling
