A comparison of two of the top universities for computer science, ICT or computing degree courses in Malaysia, Asia Pacific University (APU) and Multimedia University (MMU). Many students are sometimes confused on how to choose the right university that would fit them.

When choosing the best university for IT or computing studies, students must choose one that is up-to-date, has experienced lecturers, computer facilities equipped with the necessary software, and possess an English-speaking environment to help develop their communication skills for future job success. Furthermore, one of the most important criteria in choosing a good university to study in Malaysia is to look at their track record of achievements, awards and rankings. These are evidence showing the university’s commitment to quality and the high standards of their lecturers and education. I have included in this article the list of awards & rankings for Asia Pacific University (APU) and Multimedia University (MMU) throughout the years for you to compare.

Students should look at the syllabus of the IT degree subjects as well to see if it fits their needs and career goals.  Do not choose a university that has cheap fees but does not provide solid education in IT as you will regret this when you begin your work life. Without the necessary knowledge and skills in IT, you will not be able to pass the interview or even get promotions because you do not know how to do the work or solve the problems. Therefore, choose wisely.

Choosing a university is important as it will help to shape your mind, character and help you to develop the necessary skills for a successful career. Therefore, not all private universities are the same. You should not choose a university because it is the cheapest, easiest and nearest. It should be based on which university that best fits your needs.

Every university and course in Malaysia is different and each student wants different things to fit their education and career goals. The best university is one that fits your career goals, your personality and can push you to a higher level of success.

Looking at the number of awards that the university and its students have won in competitions related to the course can be a guide in helping you to make the right choice. They are evidence that the university and its students have achieved a level of capability and possess high standards of teaching.

The information below is taken mostly from the universities’ websites and the opinions expressed are my own only, you will need to decide which is best for you.
