Bachelor of Software Engineering (Hons)

Building solutions for the future

 

The expanding integration of internet technologies coupled with the growth in e-commerce has resulted in a rising demand for software engineers. As computer systems become increasingly sophisticated, software engineers are expected to design, implement, safeguard and update systems. They are the ones leading the way in developing the next generation of operating systems, applications, integrated systems, artificial intelligence and robotics.

Through UOW Malaysia KDU’s Bachelor of Software Engineering (Hons), students are exposed to valuable insights in utilising systematic and disciplined approaches to creating quality software products. They also gain core software development knowledge, which includes skills and techniques in modelling and analysis, software design, development, verification and validation, maintenance and management systems.

Students will also be involved in a variety of projects ranging from business applications, high-precision and safety-critical scientific and engineering systems in this ever-expanding digital world.

IDEAL SCHOOL FOR COMPUTER STUDIES – TAKE IT IN UOW MALAYSIA KDU

“An all-inclusive syllabus that produces computing wizards & games maestros”

 

THE BEST STREAMLINED SYLLABUS

Our syllabus is a direct result of in-depth analysis and collaborations with industry partners to ensure our graduates are not only employable but desirable talents that can integrate seamlessly into the industry. It evolves to stay relevant to current industry needs and practices.

 

Creative Media:

The Game Development degree programme at UOW Malaysia KDU is endorsed by a major UK-based game development studio and stalwarts in the local industry. The programme’s streamlined syllabus and industry insights produces sought-after graduates, drawing many a studio to headhunt and handpick talents before they even graduate. With three specialised streams to choose from, our programme is one of the most comprehensive Game Development programmes out there.

UOW Malaysia KDU also collaborates with Codemasters Studios in the adoption of industry benchmarking and standards for curriculum and assessment methods in programme delivery. Codemasters is one of Britain’s oldest video game development companies and is considered Europe’s largest independent games company with nearly 700 employees in the UK alone.

 

Computing:

UOW Malaysia KDU recognises the need to integrate and diminish the gap between industry requirements, practice and technology and academic delivery. Irrespective of the computing stream students choose to study, our syllabus ensure they have a strong grasp in the fundamentals on computing, from programming, to using complex algorithms, and designing, building and testing of applications or systems – all of which are critical in cultivating a graduate who is an analytical thinker and creative problem-solver.

UOW Malaysia KDU offers programmes in 3 out of the 4 major facets of computing (as stated by The Association for Computing Machinery, the world’s largest scientific and educational society for computing).

  • Computer Science
  • Software Engineering
  • Information Systems

“Our strong industry collaborations means students actively collaborate with potential future employers – before even graduating!”

Strategic Partnerships:

We work with selected corporate industry and relevant organisations to obtain practical training materials and tools for knowledge transfer as well as the opportunity for events and networking. Students get a taste of real world experience in consultation with top technological companies such as IEEE Computer Society, and RapidMiner Master Reseller, Ouandatics (M) Sdn Bhd keeping updated with latest trends through projects and industry involvement.

 

Certification Ready:
Students are exposed to and prepared for external certification exams and professional certification processes through our partnerships.

 

MyGameDev Talent Development Initiative:
In 2012, the Ministry of Higher Education awarded UOW Malaysia KDU with a PEMANDU Entry Point Project initiative under the Economic Transformation Plan and the National Key Results Area (Education) to spearhead the Game Development industry in Malaysia, focusing on awareness and talent building activities. This Game Development Cluster represents the start of a strategic collaboration between educational institutions and the Game Development industry to create a High-Income, Sustainable Creative Economy in the area of Game Development.

The primary measure of success in a digital game region is a critical mass of talent. Without critical mass, it is difficult to find support, retain talent, and attract international visibility and credibility. In an effort to maintain a constant flow of talents into the Game Development Industry, MyGameDev’s role is to ensure that not only are the relevant institutions generating graduates which are industry ready but to also prepare a ready pool of raw post-secondary student talents to feed into this pipeline.
