Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung S3, HTC, Blacberry, iPhones, smart phones are increasing in popularity. After the craze of the

The launch of the iPhone5 by Apple

Samsung S3, the launch of the iPhone 5 is sure to push the popularity of the usage of phones that are increasingly becoming a combination of computer, camera, video recorder, GPS, PDA, and other functions. These functions run on computer software and hardware. Think about it, the more popular the iPhone 5 gets, the more job opportunities for you!

The software for smart phones are different from that of the PC or MACS, therefore, needs a new generation of IT professionals trained in modern mobile computing systems and technologies. The degree in Mobile Computing will surely see its demand increase as there will be plenty of jobs available.

Mobile computing is the ability to use technology that is not physically connected to static environments. It involves mobile

hardware, mobile software and mobile communication. The hardware includes mobile devices or the devices components while

Apple shares with the world the software and hardware capabilities of the new iPhone5

mobile software deals with the mobile applications. Communication issues include ad-hoc and infrastructure networks including communication properties, protocols, data formats and concrete technologies.

This would mean that other than smart phones, mobile technology will include Global Positioning Systems (GPS), tablet PCs, iPads, iPods, Bluetooth, laptops, wireless LAN or wireless WAN technology, wearable computers, Bluetooth enabled devices, or Infrared Data Association (IrDA) interfaces. All these devices need to connect with the wireless

Students will learn about the project management of computing projects, mobile security, the deployment of mobile computing systems, and mobile computing systems and infrastructure. It is important for students to understand how mobile computer systems are developed and learn how to design and build them to meet the needs of the real business world. Students will need to be trained to understand the modern

wired and wireless communication technologies and the software tools and techniques required for the development of modern enterprise computing systems including mobile components.

To meet the demand for this new generation of computing professionals, UCSI University offers the Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Mobile Computing. This programme encompasses the study of computer technology, programming, communication, networking, management and business. It will enable the student to develop a deeper understanding of embedded computing, network security and mobile application development.

Students will be introduced to computing, programming, communication, principles of networking and marketing in the First Year of their studies. They will work with fundamental computer-based systems components, and use these for experiments throughout the course.
