Most top private universities in Malaysia offer a selection of Foundation, Diploma & Degree courses in information technology (IT) or computing.

Graduating with a Information Technology (IT) degree from a top private university in Malaysia allows you to choose from a wide range of careers in software development, business analysis, ITC consulting, data modelling, systems integration and network management.

Students after SPM or O-Levels will have 2 options to choose from which are the Foundation in Computing & Technology and the Diploma in Information Technology. Both pathways to the degree will take a total of 4 years in duration.

The Foundation is a 1-year course and is more academic in nature while the Diploma takes 2 years to complete and is more practical. With the Diploma, you can either continue on to the degree after completion or go to work. On the other hand, upon completing the Foundation, you will need to enter into the degree course for another 3 years. You cannot use the Foundation qualification to find a job.

The subjects offered in both Foundation and Diploma cover topics related to information technology which is an advantage compared to taking an external Pre-University course. However, the subjects in Foundation and Diploma cover a wide range of information technology areas. You will only specialise during your degree studies. You can take the time during your Foundation or Diploma to decide which area to specialise in for your IT degree.

As you may well know, information technology (IT) is used interchangeably and can mean software engineering, computer science or other computing courses. After taking the variety of computing subjects in the Foundation and Diploma, you will get a better idea of which area that you would like to specialise in. A degree in information technology will take you 3 years to complete.

When choosing an IT degree programme to study, it is important to look at the subjects to see if they match your academic and career goals. The university also plays an important part in developing your knowledge and skills so take the time and effort to research for the right one.
