Primarily, IoT is not about the Internet. It is about the physical objects around us that are connected to the Internet.   The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.

A thing, in the Internet of Things, can be a person with a heart monitor implant, a farm animal with a biochip transponder, an automobile that has built-in sensors to alert the driver when tire pressure is low — or any other natural or man-made object that can be assigned an IP address and provided with the ability to transfer data over a network.

Excellent Job Demand for Internet of Things (IoT) in Malaysia

I was confused about what to study & at which university. Talking to EduSpiral helped clear my doubts.
Zen Yi, Graduated from Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University (APU)

IoT has evolved from the convergence of wireless technologies, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), microservices and the internet. The convergence has helped tear down the silo walls between operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT), allowing unstructured machine-generated data to be analyzed for insights that will drive improvements.

Today computers — and, therefore, the internet — are almost wholly dependent on human beings for information. Nearly all of the roughly 50 petabytes (a petabyte is 1,024 terabytes) of data available on the internet were first captured and created by human beings by typing, pressing a record button, taking a digital picture or scanning a bar code.

The problem is, people have limited time, attention and accuracy — all of which means they are not very good at capturing data about things in the real world. If we had computers that knew everything there was to know about things — using data they gathered without any help from us — we would be able to track and count everything and greatly reduce waste, loss and cost. We would know when things needed replacing, repairing or recalling and whether they were fresh or past their best.

What is the Internet of Things (IoT)?

EduSpiral picked me up from KL Sentral to tour the campus & provided counseling to help me make the right choice.
Qi Leem, Software Engineering Graduate from Asia Pacific University (APU)

IoT is more than just having Internet connectivity on everyday appliances. Essentially, IoT is a convergence of smart devices that generates data through sensors to create new information and knowledge to boost human intelligence, productivity and quality of life.

IoT is defined as “Intelligent interactivity between human and things to exchange information and knowledge for new value creation”. It is a complex yet complete solution compassing three main technology components, namely connected things with embedded sensors, connectivity and infrastructure, and last but not least, analytics and applications.

For example, factories can place sensors on its machines and equipment to discover early signs of fatigue on the machines or related parts. This way, preventive maintenance can be done on machines just before they break down and cause production downtime.

In the world of rapid digital interaction, IoT gives insights on how consumers integrate technology in their daily lives, a valuable information that can be used in various ways. The growing need for internet-related products and services is driving this transition, not only globally but also here in Malaysia.

According to youth in Malaysia, the most exciting technologies expected to have the largest impact on their future lives will be Internet of Things (IoT) based on survey findings released by Microsoft.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is ranked as the top technology that Malaysian youth expect to have the biggest impact on their lives. In recent years, the confluence of power devices, cloud and data has enabled bold visions on how IoT can be an integrated part of our digital future.

IoT refers to the ever-growing network of physical objects connected to the Internet and the communication that occurs between these objects and other devices and systems. This includes everything from street sensors, home appliances, wearables, and vehicles.

Examples of Internet of Things (IoT) Applicable in Malaysian Lives

EduSpiral explained the courses to me and took me around the university. This helped me to make a better decision.
Yoong Sang, IT at Asia Pacific University

Imagine the shirt, pants or dress one wears daily is linked to a digital network that monitors every bodily change and physiological activity, and sends alerts for example when there is an abnormal heart beat rate. This will indicate one’s stress or fatigue level and will help one make a well-informed decision whether to continue with the activities or consult a physician.

Similarly sensors would ‘read’ the colours of the secretions in the baby’s diapers and send the data through the network to see if there is any indication on the baby’s health status.

The data from the diapers could also be sent to a connected smart electronic device such as a phone or smart watch to the mothers or the caretakers to alert them on any problem or that it is time for them to replace the soaking wet nappy with a new clean dry one.

With IoT even the doctor can now track the patients’ health status real-time from the comfort of his office chair. Those data sent to connected monitoring devices may be able to track the daily activities, vital signs and diet habits that can give the physician an idea of what is going on and provide the required advice.

Very soon, we would be looking at IoT that would turn the home into a really smart and cost-saving home. Experts around the world are working hard and fast to bring regular household appliances to life by turning them into smart appliances connected to the network.

Imagine your smart home is ready to receive you by the time you arrive home after a hectic day. The air-conditioner is already switched on to cool you down from the heat outside. Selected lights are switched on prior to your arrival or switched off as soon as you leave for work. Everything in your smart home is pre-set to welcome you or your guest.

All switches are multi-connected via smart devices that can be used as the remote control.  At the recent MCMC-Intel GS1 Malaysia IoT Seminar held recently at Cyberjaya, the national power company Tenaga Nasional Berhad Malaysia (TNB) showcased one of its new IoT application to save electricity cost.

With the target to create smart users, TNB has come up with a device called Smart Meter connected to a network where the user could manage and monitor usage in the most seamless way possible via an app connected to the Smart Meter. Users will be able to monitor usage, payment history and plan their finances and most of all be aware on the electrical appliance usage and electricity consumption via the app.

The Smart Meter will be installed at every Malaysian home in the future. The installation has already started and only in a matter of time all users will be able to monitor and control electricity usage via their smart mobile devices.

These are the few examples how IoT could well change our lifestyle. IoT in fact brings endless possibilities in enriching our lifestyle.

High Job Demand for Internet of Things (IoT) Professionals in Malaysia and Globally

Jerry Cheong, Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

In 2015, the Ministry of Science, Innovation & Technology Malaysia launched the National IoT Strategic Roadmap, which forecasted opportunities to reach RM9.5 billion in 2020 and RM42.5 billion in 2025. This is all done to create a national ecosystem to make IoT a new source of economic growth with its industrialisation and proliferation of use.

The National IoT Strategic Roadmap outlines 3 national goals:

  1. Malaysia as the Regional Development Hub for IoT
  2. Create a conducive IoT industry ecosystem
  3. Strengthen technopreneur capabilities in Apps & Services layer

Gartner predicts that by 2017, 50 percent of IoT solutions (typically a product combined with a service) will originate in startups that are less than three years old. Malaysia also have their own IoT Ecosystem.

Over the recent years, technology companies have developed more devices with capabilities to be connected to the Internet — including watches, televisions, cameras and others. A separate report by IHS Markit also suggested that there will be more than 20 billion connected devices in 2020. Startups such as Katsana, REKA and Jom Parking in providing creative IoT solutions for Transportation segment. Favoriot, Teleme, GetDoc, and Doctor2U are startups that will focus on Health and Insurance too. There’s going to be many more Malaysian IoT startups that are eager to offer their solutions for Malaysia market or globally.

In Malaysia, the IoT industry is expected to generate over 14,000 new jobs and contribute billions of ringgit to the economy. According to MIMOS, IoT will create a positive impact on several areas. First, it expects mobile device penetration to hit 280% by 2025 (from 144% currently). It also expects mobile broadband penetration to jump to 167% by 2025 (from under 15% in 2015) and mobile services to more than double to US$16 billion in 2025.

MIMOS also added that implementation of IoT is also likely to contribute RM9.5 billion to Malaysia’s gross national income by 2020, and RM42.5 billion by 2025. From the RM42.5 billion projection, RM34 billion will be driven by apps and services, as well as analytics solutions.

Separately, the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation added that IoT is likely to create over 14,270 high-skilled employment opportunities by 2020.

By building the local IoT ecosystem, it allows local startups and tech companies to tap onto the vast potential globally — which is estimated to be valued from US$1.9 trillion to US$7.1 trillion by 2020.

“IoT will be the key driver in transforming Malaysia into a high-income economy. It has the potential to transform Malaysia’s traditional economy of agriculture and manufacturing and enable it to move up the value chain,” said Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) Chief Strategy Officer Siva Ramanathan

Top 4 Universities in Malaysia for Network Computing


Best Private Universities in Malaysia for Network Computing

Written by EduSpiral Consultant Services For more information contact 01111408838

Professionals with Information Technology (IT) and network computing qualifications and skills are in short supply worldwide. The U.S. Department of Labor estimates the employment of network and computer systems administrators will grow by 31 percent from 2014 to 2024. And this is the same for all countries including Malaysia.

As organisations and institutions in Malaysia invest in mobile devices, cloud computing, social media, and big data, they depend on a workforce with the digital skills to make the most of these technologies. Right now, the number of people working and studying information technology in Malaysia simply won’t match the expected demand. Individuals who choose to add network computing to their studies or professional skills discover new opportunities in today’s digital economy.

Choosing the best university to study in Malaysia will ensure that the student will gain the necessary knowledge and skills in Network Computing to compete in the workforce.

Studying Network Computing in Malaysia

I was confused about what to study & at which university. Talking to EduSpiral helped clear my doubts.
Zen Yi, Graduated from Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University (APU)

Simply put, computer networking is the study of how computers can be linked to share data. The concept of connecting computers dates back to the 1960s, when the Department of Defense led the first attempt to create a computer network that painstakingly linked a handful of computers around the U.S. Since then, wireless networking has taken off and networking is now considered an essential part of computing. A computer without a network, arguably, has little use in daily life.

Compared to Computing, the Network Computing course has a much stronger focus on computer network technologies. You will develop both practical skills in designing and building networks, as well as expertise in network management such as fault, configuration, accounting, performance and security. For each of these, students will learn about available protocols and how to analyse different models and standards.

I didn’t want to leave Penang for my studies but EduSpiral provided detailed information to help me make my decision. Vincent Lim, Software Engineering, Asia Pacific University (APU)

At the same time, the Network Computing course at a top university in Malaysia should cover all the fundamentals of computing. Topics include web applications, database systems, programming and software development.

You’ll also develop skills in areas such as mobile and wireless technologies, IP telephony and network security. The networking knowledge and skills you will gain during your studies at universities in Malaysia can be used to support and manage information networks in organisations. You will be looking at network communications from the deep academic understanding, through to the practical aspects of generating the data and configuring commercial grade equipment to best manage the information efficiently.

Who Should Study Network Computing?

I was planning to study in IPTA after STPM but then my parents talked to EduSpiral. They realised the importance of studying at a top award winning university for computing.
Mark Siew, Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University

A solid math background is valuable, like all the other computer science and engineering fields. In addition to Calculus, important tools in computer networking and communications include the following:

  • Linear algebra
  • Probability and statistics
  • Differential equations
  • Numerical analysis

Good programming skills are also very important. Although a good programming background may not be necessary for some of the topics under networking (e.g., low-level communications, hardware issues), networking protocols and software require a solid programming background.

Most of the time, students have to develop skills in a new paradigm of programming: distributed programming. In distributed programming, replicas of the same of code run on different machines but work collectively to do a common task. This may sound like parallel programming, but it’s not quite the same. Most of the time, code replicated over the network treats each other as peers and exchanges messages to proceed on a common task, e.g., transferring data from one machine to another.

A solid capability for abstract thinking is also essential for networking, like most other computer science fields. Networking typically involves a layered architecture where each layer is an abstraction of services to layer above. Writing code for networking software involves a good deal of abstraction.

What is Network Computing?

Not satisfied after completing our diploma at Inti & EduSpiral helped us with the credit transfer. He arranged for us to talk to lecturers & staff at APU to guide us on which IT course to study.
Chin Mun & Li Ching, Business Computing at Asia Pacific University

Network computing refers to the use of computers and other devices in a linked network, rather than as unconnected, stand-alone devices. As computing technology has progressed during the last few decades, network computing has become more frequent, especially with the creation of cheap and relatively simple consumer products such as wireless routers, which turn the typical home computer setup into a local area network.

In network computing, computers often share broadband and other resources. Many larger business networks also share hard drive space, where any networked computer has access to the same data through a server or other hardware setup. Networking can be a more efficient way to deliver more functionality to a large number of computers or devices. In some cases, for example, a network may allow for lower software licensing fees than buying the software for a specific number of stand-alone devices.

More recent developments have made network computing more sophisticated. One is the process of

network virtualization, where hardware networks may be logically partitioned. Another is cloud computing, where the shared network resources can be located remotely for greater data security.

A network is defined as a group of two or more computer systems linked together. There are many types of computer networks, including the following:

  • local-area networks (LANs): The computers are geographically close together (that is, in the same building).
  • wide-area networks (WANs): The computers are farther apart and are connected by telephone lines or radio waves.
  • campus-area networks (CANs): The computers are within a limited geographic area, such as a campus or military base.

    I was lost in choosing the right course. My dad contacted EduSpiral to talk to me. He listened to me & guided me to make the right choice.
    Hubert, Foundation in Computing & Technology at Asia Pacific University

  • metropolitan-area networks MANs): A data network designed for a town or city.
  • home-area networks (HANs): A network contained within a user’s home that connects a person’s digital devices.

Computer networking involves many things coming together, and there are many challenges and

important problems to solve in the field of networking:

  • Scaling hardware and software to very high (e.g., 100+ Gbps) speeds (routers, switches)
  • Effective interaction with user (web technologies)
  • Privacy protection and security (firewalls, antivirus software)
  • Meeting growing wireless demand (smartphones, handhelds)
  • Scaling the number of participants to many billions (sensors, Internet-of-Things)
  • Maintaining healthy Internet economics among service providers
  • Addressing social phenomena
  • Seamless connection to highly mobile devices

Network Characteristics

I had wanted to go to another university near my house for IT after my A-Levels. After consulting EduSpiral, I realised that I should choose the best university for IT so that I can gain the necessary knowledge and skills for a successful career in this competitive field.
Kah Jun, Software Engineering at APU

In addition to these types, the following characteristics are also used to categorise different types of networks:

  • topology : The geometric arrangement of a computer system. Common topologies include a bus, star, and ring.
  • protocol : The protocol defines a common set of rules and signals that computers on the network use to communicate. One of the most popular protocols for LANs is called Ethernet. Another popular LAN protocol for PCs is the IBM token-ring network .
  • architecture : Networks can be broadly classified as using either a peer-to-peer or client/server architecture.

Computers on a network are sometimes called nodes. Computers and devices that allocate resources for a network are called servers.

What is the Typical Job of a Computer Network Specialist in Malaysia?

Being in Sabah made it difficult for me to survey the universities in Peninsula. I found EduSpiral online and they provided detailed information & helped me with my application. They even took me around the university for a tour when I went to visit.
Xavier Phang, Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University

Computer networking has become a routine part of our daily lives therefore making the jobs of computer networking specialists and administrators more important in Malaysia. It is the job of the computer-networking specialist to keep the networks working. Once a network goes down, many businesses stops to function until it returns to normal. This may incur losses to the businesses. Computer networks have become the communications backbone of large and small companies in Malaysia.

Problem solving is generally the top activity for computer networking specialists, and the ability to solve problems quickly and creatively is important. The priority of the computer networking specialist is the day-to-day support that keeps the network functioning.

A small travel agency in Kuala Lumpur, for example, cannot function if it does not have access to its computer network of airlines and travel databases. Many businesses in Malaysia would be in the same predicament. The computer networking specialist maintains the software and hardware, monitors the system for potential disturbances, analyses problems, and develops plans for potential solutions.

A solid technical support background can help in network administration because it exposes students to

I contacted EduSpiral for advise on my son’s future career. He looked at his results and then met us & provided excellent insight for my son to make a good decision.
Patrick, son is Roshen studying Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

unexpected problems and brings them into contact with a broad range of products and computer activities. Networking specialists can anticipate problems and develop plans to prevent them or to reduce their effects when they do happen.

The computer networking specialist’s early career responsibilities might involve monitoring and performing routine maintenance on the computer systems. These responsibilities might include presenting recommendations or developing technical requirements about the company’s network based on available technology.

In some systems, the computer-networking specialist also oversees the security system for the network. Computer crime is a growing problem globally as well as in Malaysia and networking specialists are constantly being challenged to find new ways to thwart potential information thieves. They must understand the nature of the information being protected, the type of software and hardware being used, and the wide variety of possible ways to breach its security.

A typical role for the computer networking specialist is to train others how to use the system. The specialist

EduSpiral took me & my friends to tour a few universities to help us make the right choice. He then met me & my father for further counseling & to assist in registering.
Horng Yarng, Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

must know the intricate details of the system but be capable of translating that information to the layman. Company employees must know what the system can and cannot do, and they must be shown what they can do to protect information and help prevent possible hacking from outsiders.

Computer networking specialists might also serve as the systems administrator for the network. Their role is to identify and evaluate the needs of a company and then develop the network requirements to implement a plan for meeting those needs. They must design a system with parts that fit together and work properly with the least potential for disruption. Administrators might become software engineers and take part in designing the system or network.

Computer networking specialists usually work in comfortable surroundings, but they have to be prepared for a variety of inconveniences. Network breakdowns can happen at any time and very few businesses can wait until the next working day to get it up and running again. This means that the networking specialist may remain on-call during night and weekend hours in the event of an emergency. It also means the specialist should be able to handle some degree of stress. When the system is down, people are not working, and that means the pressure is on to get the system working again as soon as possible.

Career Opportunities in Network Computing in Malaysia

Computer networking specialists are being called upon more and more to safeguard individual, company and government information through constantly changing security processes. A career that barely existed a generation ago has become one of the more high-profile jobs in the world today. The increasing spread of network technology combined with the complexity of that technology means that a graduate will be walking into a growing field that promises to continue to provide challenges and demands for many years to come.

Specialists are in high demand in fields of:

  • network applications (including web applications)
  • mobile computing
  • internet computing
  • network technology implementation and management.

What are the differences between electrical engineering and electronics engineering?

Multimedia University (MMU) Cyberjaya Engineering Student won the 2016 IEEE Malaysia ComSoc/VTS Joint Chapter Outstanding Dissertation Award

Electrical engineering deals with heavy current and high voltage circuits, control, machines, communications, power systems, power electronics, math, and computer technology related courses. Electrical engineering is an engineering discipline that deals with the study and application of electricity and electromagnetism. Its practitioners are called electrical engineers.

Electrical engineering is a broad field that encompasses many subfields. Electrical engineering has many subfields dealing with the various aspects of electromagnetism. Some work directly with Maxwell’s equations to manipulate RF signals, some with power, and some with signal manipulation. (Power engineering deals not only with electricity generation, electric power transmission, and electricity distribution but also with electrical circuits and materials (e.g. insulators, semiconductors) that need to withstand high voltages and

currents.)

Electronics engineering deals with light current and low voltage circuits, control, communications, integrated circuit, signal processing, math and basic courses on power system, power electronics, machines, and computer technology related courses.

Electronics engineers design and test electrical networks (more commonly known as circuits) that take advantage of electromagnetic properties of electrical components or discrete/elements (such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, transistors, diodes, semiconductors) to achieve the desired functionality. One of several ubiquitous examples is the tuner circuit, which allows the user of a radio to filter out all but a single station, corresponding to a desired signal frequency (such as those in AM and FM radios).

Top 10 Information Technology (IT) or Computing Degree Courses to Study in Malaysia


Best Computing or Computer Studies Courses in Malaysia

Written by EduSpiral Consultant Services. For more information contact 01111408838

Computing consists of several fields, and many respected colleges and universities in Malaysia offer undergraduate degree programmes in several of them such as computer science, computer engineering, information systems, information technology, software engineering, and more. These computing fields are related but also quite different from each other. The programmes represent a number of computing disciplines.

A lot of students assume that all Computing or Information Technology (IT) courses at the universities in Malaysia are the same. They are not. It is important when choosing the Computer Studies, Computer Science, Computing, Software Engineering or Information Technology (IT) course, to look at the subjects offered. You have to decide which area you want to focus on in your future career before choosing the college or university, if not, you will not possess the necessary knowledge and skills in IT.

This is important because during interviews for IT jobs, you will be given a test to assess your knowledge in IT. If you do not pass that test, you will not move on to be interviewed. IT is not like a business course, it is technical. If you do not have the necessary knowledge and skills, you will not go far in your career.

List of Top Ten Computing or Computer Studies Courses in Malaysia

I was lost in choosing the right course. My dad contacted EduSpiral to talk to me. He listened to me & guided me to make the right choice.
Hubert, Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University

After High School, many students are not exposed to the many different types of computing therefore it can be confusing to choose the right computing course to study in Malaysia. Students assume that all computing courses are the same and simply choose a course that they have no clue what it is about. It is important to talk to knowledgeable and experienced advisors to guide you in choosing the right computing course.

Here is a list of the top computing courses in Malaysia for you to consider

  1. Software Engineering or Programming
  2. Information Technology (IT)
  3. Network Computing
  4. Cyber Security
  5. Data Analytics
  6. Cloud Computing
  7. Database Systems
  8. Internet of Things (IoT)
  9. Computer Science
  10. Computer Games Development or Game Design

Software Engineering or Programming

I was confused about what to study & at which university. Talking to EduSpiral helped clear my doubts.
Zen Yi, Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University

Computer software engineers, or software developers, design and develop software applications or computer systems in Malaysia. They develop computer applications for clients as well as the major systems that make a computer run.

Software Engineering is developing, designing and maintaining software systems that are reliable and efficiently carries out the tasks smoothly. The software system is created in collaboration with the needs and requirements of the clients. The software designed must be user friendly for the staff or customers to use. Software Engineering is an integration of computer science, computer programming, mathematics and engineering practice. Software engineers apply the principles of computer science and mathematical analysis to the design, development, testing, and evaluation of the software and systems that make computers work

Software Engineering is the field of studying, devising and building a practical solution to a problem. The objective of a software engineer is to understand a problem within a computer and create software that eases the problem. This could include either manipulating existing software or creating a new one from scratch. Software is required to make computer function. This job is mostly a team effort. Engineers group together with programmers in order to build a software that works with the system at hand.

Many subjects that are learned in Software Engineering is similar to the ones learned in Computer Science, but it also includes additional subjects such as requirements engineering, software architecture, software testing, and software deployment.

Information Technology (IT)

EduSpiral took us around to tour the campus and the hostel giving me & my family the assurance that we are making the right choice.
Jerry Cheong, Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

Information technology (IT) is the application of computers to store, study, retrieve, transmit, and manipulate data, or information, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. IT is considered a subset of information and communications technology (ICT).

IT includes several layers of physical equipment (hardware), virtualization and management or automation tools, operating systems and applications (software) used to perform essential functions. User devices, peripherals and software, such as laptops, smartphones or even recording equipment, can be included in the IT domain. IT can also refer to the architectures, methodologies and regulations governing the use and storage of data

Information Technology (IT) involves many things. Take, for instance, an IT department in a company in Malaysia where there are many people with many jobs and a variety of responsibilities. These responsibilities range from keeping systems and data secure to keeping networks up and running. There are people who input data, people who manage databases and people who do programming.

Information Technology (IT) also includes the management of data, whether it is in the form of text, voice, image, audio or some other form. It can also involve things related to the Internet. This gives IT a whole new meaning, since the Internet is its own realm. Information Technology (IT) involves the transfer of data, so it makes sense that the Internet would be a part of IT. IT has become a part of our everyday lives and continues to proliferate into new realms.

Typically, Information Technology (IT) is used in the context of enterprise operations as opposed to personal or entertainment technologies. The commercial use of IT encompasses both computer technology and telephony.

Network Computing

EduSpiral took me & my friends to tour a few universities to help us make the right choice. He then met me & my father for further counseling & to assist in registering.
Horng Yarng, Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

Network computing refers to the use of computers and other devices in a linked network, rather than as unconnected, stand-alone devices. It is connecting separate physical devices through protocols to form a single logical network. As computing technology has progressed during the last few decades, network computing has become more frequent, especially with the creation of cheap and relatively simple consumer products such as wireless routers, which turn the typical home computer setup into a local area network.

In network computing, computers often share broadband and other resources. Many larger business networks also share hard drive space, where any networked computer has access to the same data through a server or other hardware setup.

Networking can be a more efficient way to deliver more functionality to a large number of computers or devices. In some cases, for example, a network may allow for lower software licensing fees than buying the software for a specific number of stand-alone devices.

One of the strongest arguments behind network computers is that they reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO)— not only because the machines themselves are less expensive than PCs, but also because network computers can be administered and updated from a central network server.

More recent developments have made network computing more sophisticated. One is the process of network virtualization, where hardware networks may be logically partitioned. Another is cloud computing, where the shared network resources can be located remotely for greater data security.

Cyber Security

I contacted EduSpiral for advise on my son’s future career. He looked at his results and then met us & provided excellent insight for my son to make a good decision.
Patrick, son is Roshen studying Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, preventative techniques, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access.

Cybersecurity involves protecting information and systems from major cyberthreats, such as cyber crime, cyber terrorism, cyber warfare, and cyber espionage. In their most disruptive form, cyberthreats take aim at secret, political, military, or infrastructural assets of a nation or its people at companies and businesses.

Cyber Security is an important and growing area of work for computing professionals. Any organisation that has a computer network or uses the Internet has a potential security risk and will need people with specialised skills to help protect their systems and data.

Computer systems store, process and communicate a wide variety of data. Much of this data is private and improper access to it can result in significant costs to an organisation or the person that owns the data. Securing computer systems against malicious attack or even against inadvertent damage is vital to any computer system.

Data Analytics

I didn’t come from a rich family. My mother was recommended to EduSpiral who advised us to go for First City University College’s affordable diploma and yet high quality.
Hou Tung, Diploma in IT at First City University College

Big data analytics examines large amounts of data to uncover hidden patterns, correlations and other insights. With today’s technology, it’s possible to analyze your data and get answers from it almost immediately – an effort that’s slower and less efficient with more traditional business intelligence solutions.

Data analytics (DA) is the process of examining data sets in order to draw conclusions about the information they contain, increasingly with the aid of specialized systems and software. Data analytics technologies and techniques are widely used in commercial industries to enable organizations to make more-informed business decisions and by scientists and researchers to verify or disprove scientific models, theories and hypotheses.

As a term, data analytics predominantly refers to an assortment of applications, from basic business intelligence (BI), reporting and online analytical processing (OLAP) to various forms of advanced analytics. In that sense, it’s similar in nature to business analytics, another umbrella term for approaches to analyzing data — with the difference that the latter is oriented to business uses, while data analytics has a broader focus. The expansive view of the term isn’t universal, though: In some cases, people use data analytics specifically to mean advanced analytics, treating BI as a separate category.

Data analytics initiatives can help businesses increase revenues, improve operational efficiency, optimize marketing campaigns and customer service efforts, respond more quickly to emerging market trends and gain a competitive edge over rivals — all with the ultimate goal of boosting business performance. Depending on the particular application, the data that’s analyzed can consist of either historical records or new information that has been processed for real-time analytics uses. In addition, it can come from a mix of internal systems and external data sources.

Cloud Computing

EduSpiral arranged for me and my mother to meet up with the lecturer at HELP to get a deeper understanding of the course, and also got me a scholarship!
Cavan Stefan, IT at HELP University

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services—servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics and more—over the Internet (“the cloud”). Companies offering these computing services are called cloud providers and typically charge for cloud computing services based on usage, similar to how you are billed for water or electricity at home.

Cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet. It goes back to the days of flowcharts and presentations that would represent the gigantic server-farm infrastructure of the Internet as nothing but a puffy, white cumulonimbus cloud, accepting connections and doling out information as it floats.

Database Systems

Every interesting modern computer application requires the manipulation of large amounts of data (think: Google, Flickr, etc.). All of these applications require people who can build systems to organise and manipulate massive data sets efficiently and effectively. The database stream teaches you how to model, manage and analyse data in a variety of forms (relational tuples, images, documents) using existing database management systems (DBMSs), and even how to build DBMSs from the ground up.

Mobile Computing

EduSpiral took us to visit APU and UCSI so that we can see the campus facilities and make a better decision about our future.
Kian Yong (Mechanical Engineering) at UCSI University and Hong Ann (Software Engineering) at Asia Pacific University

Mobile Computing is a technology that allows transmission of data, voice and video via a computer or any other wireless enabled device without having to be connected to a fixed physical link.

Mobile computing is a generic term that refers to a variety of devices that allow people to access data and information from wherever they are. Sometimes referred to as “human-computer interaction,” mobile computing transports data, voice, and video over a network via a mobile device.

Mobile devices can be connected to a local area network (LAN), or they can take advantage of Wi-Fi or wireless technology by connecting via a wireless local area network (WLAN).

Computer Science

I had wanted to go to another university near my house for IT after my A-Levels. After consulting EduSpiral, I realised that I should choose the best university for IT so that I can gain the necessary knowledge and skills for a successful career in this competitive field.
Kah Jun, Software Engineering at APU

Computer scientists are primarily concerned with the design of algorithms, languages, hardware architecture, systems software, applications software and tools. Applications range from simple game playing to the control of space vehicles, power plants and factories, from banking machines to intelligent fault and medical diagnosis. Computer professionals, in short, are concerned with the creation of computer and information systems for the benefit of society.

Computer science spans a wide range, from its theoretical and algorithmic foundations to cutting-edge
developments in robotics, computer vision, intelligent systems, bioinformatics, and other exciting areas.
We can think of the work of computer scientists as falling into three categories.

  1. They design and implement software. Computer scientists take on challenging programming jobs. They also supervise other programmers, keeping them aware of new approaches.
  2. They devise new ways to use computers. Progress in the Computer Science areas of networking, database, and human-computer-interface enabled the development of the World Wide Web. Now CS researchers are working with scientists from other fields to make robots become practical and intelligent aides, to use databases to create new knowledge, and to use computers to help decipher the secrets of our DNA.
  3. They develop effective ways to solve computing problems. For example, computer scientists develop
    the best possible ways to store information in databases, send data over networks, and display complex images. Their theoretical background allows them to determine the best performance possible, and their study of algorithms helps them to develop new approaches that provide better performance.

Game Development or Game Design

EduSpiral took my father & I to visit KDU University College and talk to the Game Technology lecturer & Head. I was able to make a good decision in choosing the right university.
Choon Meng, Game Technology at KDU University College

Gaming is one of the most popular computer activities. New technologies are constantly arriving to make it possible to develop better and more powerful games that can be run in any standards-compliant web browser.

Modern computer games are among the most challenging computer applications to create. They use advanced concepts from computer graphics to artificial intelligence and networks. They require the collaboration of teams containing programmers, game designers, and artists.

Entertainment Software is one of the fastest growing industries in the world economy. In fact, Digital Games have become mainstream media, with nett earnings even surpassing that of the film industry.

The electronic game industry shows no signs of slowing down with a projected compound annual growth rate of 10.3 percent. In light of this incredible growth – there is a pressing need for game developers with very specialized skills – this degree course aims to cultivate high quality graduates familiar with production processes and aware of what is needed to produce successful games.

The increased demand for games development is good news for students who are interested to design games as a career in Malaysia. Job opportunities have increased for well trained game developers from top private universities in Malaysia.

Education Pathway to a Top Computing Course in Malaysia

EduSpiral advised me on Facebook and then met me and my friends at APU to take us around for a tour.
Edward, Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University

Choosing the right course to study in Malaysia after secondary school is one of the most important decisions you can make in your life. There are many types of information technology (IT) or computing programmes that students can choose from. Find out about the different information technology (IT) or computing courses available at top private universities in Malaysia, how your choice relates to your future career and what the best bets are if you want to keep your career options open.

Most top private universities in Malaysia offer a selection of Foundation, Diploma & Degree courses in information technology (IT) or computingStudents after SPM or O-Levels may go for the Foundation in Computing or Information Technology at top private universities in Malaysia for 1 year before continuing on to the 3-year Software Engineering or Information Technology (IT) degree.

With 3 credits in SPM or O-Levels including Maths, students may go for the 2-year Diploma in Information Technology, Diploma in Computer Studies or Diploma in Software Engineering and then enter into Year 2 of the Information Technology (IT) degree.

So, Which is the Best College or University in Malaysia to studyComputer Studies, Computer Science, Computing, Software Engineering or Information Technology (IT) Diploma Course?

I didn’t want to leave Penang for my studies but EduSpiral provided detailed information to help me make my decision.
Vincent Lim, Software Engineering, Asia Pacific University

EduSpiral Consultant Services has worked in the education industry for more than 15 years counseling thousands of students. We represent many reputable and top universities in Malaysia. Every student is different, therefore, we have to talk to each person and treat them like an individual to find out which university is the best that would suit their personality, financial and career goals.

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.

Many students in Malaysia also make the common mistake in choosing a university because their friends are going there. I even had one student tell me that his choice of university depends on where his girlfriend is going! This is one of the most important decisions that may change your life forever hence it should not be taken lightly.

At EduSpiral Consultant Services, I have worked in the private higher education industry in Malaysia for more than 15 years advising students with facts and evidence on how to choose the right course after SPM. You should carefully think about what are the options available to you. To choose the best course that fits you, students may fill up our EduSpiral Career Assessment form for evaluation.

The EduSpiral Career Assessment form is a simple form designed by us that gathers information from students after SPM, O-Levels, UEC, STPM or A-Levels in order to assess their aptitude helping us to determine the most suitable course and career progression. After knowing which course, we can then determine which private university in best for that course.

Software Engineering includes the design and implementation of specific, reliable, efficient and secure software systems for a multitude of purposes. Of course, you also have to be able to write or code software if you are going to be able to build the systems around it. ‘Software’ are the programs that we all use on our computers – but Software Engineering goes so much deeper than that. Software engineers usually design a program to fulfil a certain need or solve a problem. Every time you use your email, or an app on your smartphone or a computer accounting system you are using software.

Software Engineering is concerned with the design and implementation of reliable and secure software systems, which have the functionality required for the intended purpose. Software Engineering is also sometimes referred to as “software programming”. Software Engineering is a booming industry with no shortage of opportunities to create unique and life changing programs.

Career Opportunities for Malaysian Software Engineering Graduates

I was confused about what to study & at which university. Talking to EduSpiral helped clear my doubts.
Zen Yi, Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University

The software industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world with work opportunities in many areas including, but not limited to, telecommunications, defence, electronics and, of course, software development and computing. With a Software Engineering degree, you will be qualified to design, program and create software for literally anything you can think of.

Even companies that have been associated largely with hardware in the past estimate that 80-90% of their engineers are involved in software development. As a consequence of this rapid expansion there is a serious worldwide shortage of software engineers who are able to deal with the complexity of developing high-quality software systems.

Given the ubiquitous nature of software in modern society, software engineers can find employment opportunities in many areas. These will include, but will not be limited to, the computing, software, electronics, telecommunications, security and defence industries.

A career in Software Engineering in Malaysia can be rewarding with a high job demand for qualified and trained professionals. Salary for software engineers is one of the top in Malaysia. Students should choose the best software engineering course to study in Malaysia and at a top university.

Here’s a list of common criteria in choosing a top private university or college in Malaysia to study the Software Engineering course in Malaysia

Recognition & Reputation of the Software Engineering Courses in Malaysia

EduSpiral arranged for me and my mother to meet up with the lecturer at HELP to get a deeper understanding of the course, and also got me a scholarship!
Cavan Stefan, IT at HELP University

  • Is the Software Engineering course popular at that university or college?
  • What is the reputation or ranking of the private university in Malaysia? Global ranking by QS World University Rankings or locally by MQA in the SETARA 2013
  • Is the Software Engineering course recognised and approved by the Ministry of Education Malaysia?
  • Is the Software Engineering course accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Audit (MQA)?
  • Awards won by the university, staff or students for the particular course of interest. The number of awards won would be a guide on how good the university is for the course.
  • Type of programme (local diploma or dual award diploma or diploma awarded by foreign university partner?)

Academic Quality of the Software Engineering Degree Course at the University in Malaysia

EduSpiral took me & my friends to tour a few universities to help us make the right choice. He then met me & my father for further counseling & to assist in registering.
Horng Yarng, Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

  • Subjects offered in the Software Engineering course (Are they relevant, up-to-date, and help you to achieve your career goals)
  • Entry requirements for the Software Engineering Degree Course at the university or college in Malaysia
  • What is the Class size for the Software Engineering course?
  • Faculty contact/classes taught by full-time qualified & experienced faculty
  • Quality of lecturers. What are their qualifications? How many years of experience in teaching?
  • Ask your friends who have studied there or currently studying there for their opinion on the teaching quality, environment and facilities.
  • Does the university or college have a strong internship or Co-Op programme?
  • Do they have enough students to start a class?
  •  How many students do they have studying that course at that college?
  •  What is the duration of the course? When are the intake dates?

Facilities at the University for the Software Engineering Course in Malaysia

I didn’t come from a rich family. My mother was recommended to EduSpiral who advised us to go for First City University College’s affordable diploma and yet high quality.
Hou Tung, Diploma in IT at First City University College

  • When choosing a university or college in Malaysia, it is important for students to visit the campus and see the facilities and feel the culture of the students to see if it fits you.
  • Location of the university or college. Is it in the city, suburbs or country side? You should also consider the ambience of your surroundings when choosing a university. If you can’t live without nightlife, think city! If you’re into the great outdoors, you might want to go rural. Some students prefer a city life while other students prefer a quieter university environment away from the city. On the other hand, if you’re used to shopping malls and cinemas and choose a university in a rural area, you might get bored.
  • Size of the university.
  • Transportation. Is the university accessible to you? What are the public transportation available? If you drive, is there ample parking?
  • Campus resources (labs, library or resource centre, wifi, computer access, sports facilities, etc.)

Cost for your Software Engineering Degree Course Studies in Malaysia

EduSpiral picked us up from KL Sentral & took us to Asia Pacific University for a campus tour as well as arranged the Software Engineering lecturer to explain the courses in detail to us.
Chin Mun (Left) with friends from INTI, now studying Business Computing at APU

  • How much money do I have to pay for the course and cost of living? Ask your parents. Note that you will need to have enough to pay the tuition fees as well as your cost of living. (Costs for university studies in Malaysia would include tuition, hostel, food, transportation, entertainment, etc.)
  • What are the Financial assistance available at the university? (Scholarships, PTPN Loan, EPF withdrawal, etc)
  • Is the PTPTN loan available for the course at the university?
  • How much are the tuition fees? Does it include the exam and other fees?
  • How much is on-campus accommodation?
  • How much is off-campus accommodation? (Off-campus apartments, houses, condominiums) Note that it might be cheaper to find off campus accommodation on your own with friends. Is the accommodations near eateries, banks, entertainment, public transportation, safe & secure, etc.?

Student Environment and Activities at the University & College

EduSpiral arranged for me and my mother to meet up with the lecturer at HELP to get a deeper understanding of the course, and also got me a scholarship!
Cavan Stefan at HELP University

  • What is the student culture at the university? (English-speaking environment, ambitious, serious about studies, lifestyle or party university, etc) The language spoken mostly at the college by the students may also matter if you don’t know Mandarin or BM or English. If most of the students speak Mandarin at that university then it will not help you to improve your English. Having a good command of the English language helps you to get good jobs and promotions.
  • Size of the university or college in Malaysia. Some students prefer a large campus with sports facilities and other resources while other students like small colleges with family-like environment. A small college may offer individualised attention, as well as a more intimate and personalised experience. for your studies You might even want to think about how far you want to walk to get from one class to another in a large university campus. Even those little details may affect your decision.
  • Make up of the student body (diversity, international students, gender, etc.) Universities with a good proportion of international students will help you to improve your English language skills since you would need to communicate with them in English. In addition, you will learn about their culture, behaviour and discover new ideas. These skills will be useful to you when you work overseas or in a multi-national company.
  • What are the Extra-curricular activities available? (Student organisations, clubs, sports, etc.)
  • Is the university or college campus a safe area? Safety within the campus and outside.
  • Public vs. Private (STPM is tougher and choice of course & university is determined by the government)

Top Guide to Choose the Best Private University in Malaysia to Study the Software Engineering Degree Course

I was lost in choosing the right course. My dad contacted EduSpiral to talk to me. He listened to me & guided me to make the right choice.
Hubert, Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University

If you’re among the lucky who can factor more than cost and proximity into where you decide to go, studying in a private university in Malaysia is a ticket to an adventure beyond the boundaries of what you’ve experienced so far. It’s a passport to the far side of what you already know. It’s a chance to be challenged, not coddled. To be provoked, not pacified.

Does brand matter? To a point. There are indeed future employers in Malaysia who see certain degrees as seals of approval, as pre-screening of a sort. However, obtaining a degree from a famous private university will only take you so far.

Some private universities have spent millions of Ringgit throughout the years telling you that they are the best. You should objectively look at the information carefully to assess which university in Malaysia is best for you. If you do not have the necessary knowledge and skills, you won’t get far in your career.

We must be careful when choosing a private university in Malaysia as many students listen to advise from

I had wanted to go to another university near my house for IT after my A-Levels. After consulting EduSpiral, I realised that I should choose the best university for IT so that I can gain the necessary knowledge and skills for a successful career in this competitive field.
Kah Jun, Software Engineering at APU

friends and relatives who are not knowledgeable offering information not supported by facts and evidence. Choosing a private university should be done carefully and objectively, not based on the number of glitzy advertisements you have heard or seen about that university.

Talking to counselors from the private universities is a common practice to obtain the necessary information to help you to decide. You should evaluate the information provided to see if what they say is true and supported by facts and evidence. There are also many agents in Malaysia offering their services where most of the staff are young and inexperienced. They would not have the skills to guide you on this most important decision in your life.

How many of a college’s or university’s students are coming from other countries? Favour private universities with higher percentages of foreigners, because as much of your education will happen outside as inside any lecture theatre, and globalisation is here and real. The dexterity with which you can navigate other cultures — your awareness of, and openness to, them — could be more valuable than any knowledge gleaned from a book.

Remember that no university is good at everything. Each university in Malaysia excels in particular courses, so you should check to make sure that your field of study is a strong-point of the university you choose.

Choosing a university that excels in your field of study may provide you with access to more specialised

I was confused about what to study & at which university. Talking to EduSpiral helped clear my doubts.
Zen Yi, Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University

opportunities, including custom-built facilities (a moot court for law students or Film & TV studio for mass communication students, for example), field-specific academic opportunities (such as student mobility programmes or overseas study trips) and employment or internships opportunities with top companies in. If your university excels in research in your field, it’s also likely that its research will filter through to your course, that you will be taught by prominent lecturers, and that there will be opportunities for you to undertake research.

Choosing the best university for your studies in Malaysia 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 & colleges in Malaysia 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.

Many students in Malaysia also make the common mistake in choosing a university because their friends are going there. I even had one student tell me that his choice of university depends on where his girlfriend is going! This is one of the most important decisions that may change your life forever hence it should not be taken lightly.

Part of finding the right college or university in Malaysia for you will be picking out the criteria that matters to most to you, and then seeing if any of the top private colleges or universities in Malaysia that you’re looking at fit those criteria. To help you to choose the best university that fits you, you can build a list of top universities in Malaysia that meets your criteria.

Yoong Sang, IT at Asia Pacific University

Software Engineering is the field of studying, devising and building a practical solution to a problem. The objective of a software engineer is to understand a problem within a computer and create software that eases the problem. This could include either manipulating existing software or creating a new one from scratch. Software is required to make computer function. This job is mostly a team effort. Engineers group together with programmers in order to build a software that works with the system at hand.

Many subjects that are learned in Software Engineering is similar to the ones learned in Computer Science, but it also includes additional subjects such as requirements engineering, software architecture, software testing, and software deployment. Other areas that play an importance in this field include leadership, communication, time management, people management, etc. The engineers must plan out the best way to tackle the situation at hand and create a step by step process on how to accomplish this task. They may require to code in certain time, but most of the coding is done by programmers. A software engineer requires a background in software creation, programming languages, mathematics and computer hardware.

Software engineers when developing software go through a software process. This software process model

EduSpiral chatted with me on Facebook & helped me with my application & accommodation. Jian Yi, Business Computing at Asia Pacific University

Jian Yi, Business Computing at Asia Pacific University

is an abstraction of software process and is also known as process paradigms. The first published model for the software process is known as the Waterfall model. When a software is being made it must first be conceptualized on the paper, following which the program is designed and then asked to be written. The software then goes through vigorous testing and a soft release before it is made public. According to Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge, a widely accepted standard; software engineering can be divided into ten sub-disciplines: Software requirements, software design, software construction, software testing, software maintenance, software configuration management, software engineering management, software engineering process and software quality.

Software engineers learn much more about creating high-quality software in a systematic, controlled, and efficient manner. Software engineers are trained in all aspects of the software life cycle, from specification through analysis and design, to testing maintenance and evaluation of the product. They are concerned with safety and reliability of the product as well as cost and schedule of the development process.

Software Engineering has its roots in the theory and mathematics of computer science. While its study has a lot in common with computer science, software engineers learn much more about creating high-quality software in a systematic, controlled, and efficient manner. Software engineers are trained in all aspects of the software life cycle, from specification through analysis and design, to testing maintenance and evaluation of the product. They are concerned with safety and reliability of the product as well as cost and schedule of the development process.

Software engineering is the discipline of developing and maintaining software systems that behave
reliably and efficiently, are affordable to develop and maintain, and satisfy all the requirements that
customers have defined for them. More recently, it has evolved in response to factors such as the growing impact of large and expensive software systems in a wide range of situations and the increased importance of software in safety-critical applications.

Software engineering is different in character from other engineering disciplines due to both the
intangible nature of software and the discontinuous nature of software operation. It seeks to integrate the
principles of mathematics and computer science with the engineering practices developed for tangible,
physical artifacts. Prospective students in Malaysia can expect to see software engineering presented in two contexts.

  • Degree programs in computer science offer one or more software engineering courses as elements of
    the Computer Science curriculum. Some offer a multi-course concentration in software engineering within Computer Science.
  • A number of institutions offer a software engineering degree program.

Degree programs in computer science and in software engineering have many subjects in common.
Software engineering students learn more about software reliability and maintenance and focus more on
techniques for developing and maintaining software that is correct from its inception. While CS students
are likely to have heard of the importance of such techniques, the engineering knowledge and experience
provided in Software Engineering programs go beyond what Computer Science programs can provide.

The importance of this fact is so great that one of the recommendations of the Software Engineering report is that, during their program of study, students of Software Engineering should participate in the development of software to be used in earnest by others. Software Engineering students learn how to assess customer needs and develop usable software that meets those needs. Knowing how to provide genuinely useful and usable software is of paramount importance.

In the workplace, the term software engineer is a job label. There is no standard definition for this term
when used in a job description. Its meaning varies widely among employers. It can be a title equivalent to
computer programmer or a title for someone who manages a large, complex, and/or safety-critical
software project. The layman must be mindful not confuse the discipline of software engineering with the
ambiguous use of the term software engineer as used in employment advertisements and job titles.

The field of computer science and engineering has made many exciting advances recently that few people could have envisioned only a few years ago. The rise of the internet has heralded computer applications that have become a normal part of our lives. New products are being develop continually that allow us to carry a computing device in our pockets that has as much power as room-sized computers a few decades ago. These innovations have not only introduced technological change but also social change and new ways of social interaction and the diffusion of information.

Computer science combines computer programming, data structures and algorithms with other disciplines including commerce, maths, physics and languages. A degree in computer science can be expected to concentrate on the scientific aspects of computing, while a degree in information technology can be expected to concentrate on the business and communication applications of computing. To understand the differences between computer science and software engineering, you may read more at this link.

Studying the degree in Computer Science at a top university in Malaysia, one will focus on subjects such as software, databases, and networking. In general computer science degrees tend to focus on the mathematical and theoretical foundations of computing rather than emphasizing specific technologies.

Studying Computer Science in Malaysia

Being in Sabah made it difficult for me to survey the universities in Peninsula. I found EduSpiral online and they provided detailed information & helped me with my application. They even took me around the university for a tour when I went to visit.
Xavier Phang, Computer Science at Asia Pacific University

Computer Science is the ultra-flexible Computing degree. It has the flexibility that allows students to combine through electives learning about another discipline with learning how to design and implement software, or to specialise in one or two areas of Computing.

Computer science combines proficiency in computer programming, data structures and algorithms with other disciplines including commerce, maths, physics and languages. You will study computation, which looks at how computers process and sort information. Computer Science looks at how algorithms translate elements encoded in a computer’s memory and deliver them as information that has been requested (or searched for).

Computer science has more to do with theory of the computer and its computing abilites rather than hands-on applications. Computer science is basically the ability to solve a problem or getting the computer to do something without the help of a human. This field of data is not directly affected by the humans. Computing can also be done by hand and is used by many fields that are not related to primarily developing computers.

Scientists focus on developing algorithms that can create, alter and change the data depending on what

I was planning to study in IPTA after STPM but then my parents talked to EduSpiral. They realised the importance of studying at a top award winning university for computing.
Mark Siew, Computer Science at Asia Pacific University

they would like. The commands that the computer follows are done by certain algorithm that tells it what to do. Computer science can also be divided into two specializations: theoretical computer science and applied computer sciences.

The theoretical science focuses on the classical theory of computation, along with other more abstract, logical, and mathematical aspects of computing. The applied computer sciences cover topics such as artificial intelligence, computer architecture and engineering, graphic designing, computing science, etc. It deals with mainly applications or additional programs.

Computer science requires a strong mathematical and scientific background. Depending on the university in Malaysia, the courses may vary in teaching subjects. While some universities prefer teaching theoretical aspect of computer science, others focus on advanced programming.

Subjects taught at universities in Malaysia may include Theoretical computer science, Theory of computation, Information and coding theory, Algorithms and data structures, Programming language theory, Formal methods, Concurrent, parallel and distributed systems, Databases and information retrieval, Artificial intelligence, Computer architecture and engineering, Computer graphics and visualization, Computer security and cryptography, etc.

High Job Demand in Malaysia for Computer Science Professionals

I didn’t want to leave Penang for my studies but EduSpiral provided detailed information to help me make my decision.
Vincent Lim, Computer Science, Asia Pacific University

Your degree in Computer Science could see you working in the advanced IT operations of a huge number of industries. Computer science graduates also work in gaming and software development, robotics and artificial intelligence.

A university degree in computer science is no longer enough to secure a job in Malaysia. Employers in Malaysia are looking for individuals with multiple skill sets. Employers today expect their employees to be able to multitask and communicate well in the English language.

The gap between the demand for information and computer technology (ICT) talent and the supply of that talent is large. Study indicates that the existing situation cannot even supply half of the demand by 2020, about 500,000 human capital educated in science and technology will be needed in Malaysia. From this number, at least 30,000 graduates are required in the ICT job market.

According to PIKOM, there are many jobs out there for IT graduates and there are also many jobless IT graduates. The reason for this is that there is a mismatch of the courses with the skill needed. In addition, the training that the students received was not up to the standard needed in the industry.

With the increased demand for trained professionals in information technology (IT) and the many universities for students to choose from, it is important for the student to be able to choose a university that best fits his or her needs – financially, quality, educationally and career. Learn how to become a computer science professional in Malaysia by talking to knowledgeable & experienced counselors and then choosing the best private university for your degree studies. Research the education and career requirements, training and certification information and experience needed to be successful in your future career in computer science in Malaysia.

What is Computer Science?

Computer scientists are primarily concerned with the design of algorithms, languages, hardware architecture, systems software, applications software and tools. Applications range from simple game playing to the control of space vehicles, power plants and factories, from banking machines to intelligent fault and medical diagnosis. Computer professionals, in short, are concerned with the creation of computer and information systems for the benefit of society.

Computer science spans a wide range, from its theoretical and algorithmic foundations to cutting-edge
developments in robotics, computer vision, intelligent systems, bioinformatics, and other exciting areas.
We can think of the work of computer scientists as falling into three categories.

  1. They design and implement software. Computer scientists take on challenging programming jobs. They also supervise other programmers, keeping them aware of new approaches.
  2. They devise new ways to use computers. Progress in the CS areas of networking, database, and
    human-computer-interface enabled the development of the World Wide Web. Now CS researchers are working with scientists from other fields to make robots become practical and intelligent aides, to use databases to create new knowledge, and to use computers to help decipher the secrets of our DNA.
  3. They develop effective ways to solve computing problems. For example, computer scientists develop
    the best possible ways to store information in databases, send data over networks, and display complex images. Their theoretical background allows them to determine the best performance possible, and their study of algorithms helps them to develop new approaches that provide better performance.

Areas of Specialisations for Computer Science

I had wanted to go to another university near my house for IT after my A-Levels. After consulting EduSpiral, I realised that I should choose the best university for IT so that I can gain the necessary knowledge and skills for a successful career in this competitive field.
Kah Jun, Computer Science at APU

  • Artificial Intelligence: Creating computer systems that can think is one of the more exciting and potentially rewarding challenges that we face today.
  • Computer Games: Modern computer games are among the most challenging computer applications to create. They use advanced concepts from computer graphics to artificial intelligence and networks. They require the collaboration of teams containing programmers, game designers, and artists.
  • Computer Networks: Connecting separate physical devices through protocols to form a single logical network.
  • Database Systems: Every interesting modern computer application requires the manipulation of large amounts of data (think: Google, Flickr, etc.). All of these applications require people who can build systems to organise and manipulate massive data sets efficiently and effectively. The database stream teaches you how to model, manage and analyse data in a variety of forms (relational tuples, images, documents) using existing database management systems (DBMSs), and even how to build DBMSs from the ground up.
  • eCommerce: Development of computer networks and applications for business systems in small, medium and large enterprises.
  • Human Computer Interaction: The most important component of any computer system is the user. Programmers skilled in user interface design are needed for successful interactive systems.
    Robotics: Robotics is a sub-field of Artificial Intelligence with its own unique challenges.

EduSpiral took me & my friends to tour a few universities to help us make the right choice. He then met me & my father for further counseling & to assist in registering.
Horng Yarng, Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

  • Subjects offered in the Computer Science course (Are they relevant, up-to-date, and help you to achieve your career goals)
  • Entry requirements for the Computer Science Degree Course at the university or college in Malaysia
  • What is the Class size for the Computer Science course?
  • Faculty contact/classes taught by full-time qualified & experienced faculty
  • Quality of lecturers. What are their qualifications? How many years of experience in teaching?
  • Ask your friends who have studied there or currently studying there for their opinion on the teaching quality, environment and facilities.
  • Does the university or college have a strong internship or Co-Op programme?
  • Do they have enough students to start a class?
  •  How many students do they have studying that course at that college?
  •  What is the duration of the course? When are the intake dates?

Facilities at the University for the Computer Science Course in Malaysia

I didn’t come from a rich family. My mother was recommended to EduSpiral who advised us to go for First City University College’s affordable diploma and yet high quality.
Hou Tung, Diploma in IT at First City University College

  • When choosing a university or college in Malaysia, it is important for students to visit the campus and see the facilities and feel the culture of the students to see if it fits you.
  • Location of the university or college. Is it in the city, suburbs or country side? You should also consider the ambience of your surroundings when choosing a university. If you can’t live without nightlife, think city! If you’re into the great outdoors, you might want to go rural. Some students prefer a city life while other students prefer a quieter university environment away from the city. On the other hand, if you’re used to shopping malls and cinemas and choose a university in a rural area, you might get bored.
  • Size of the university.
  • Transportation. Is the university accessible to you? What are the public transportation available? If you drive, is there ample parking?
  • Campus resources (labs, library or resource centre, wifi, computer access, sports facilities, etc.)

Cost for your Computer Science Degree Course Studies in Malaysia

EduSpiral picked us up from KL Sentral & took us to Asia Pacific University for a campus tour as well as arranged the Software Engineering lecturer to explain the courses in detail to us.
Chin Mun (Left) with friends from INTI, now studying Business Computing at APU

  • How much money do I have to pay for the course and cost of living? Ask your parents. Note that you will need to have enough to pay the tuition fees as well as your cost of living. (Costs for university studies in Malaysia would include tuition, hostel, food, transportation, entertainment, etc.)
  • What are the Financial assistance available at the university? (Scholarships, PTPN Loan, EPF withdrawal, etc)
  • Is the PTPTN loan available for the course at the university?
  • How much are the tuition fees? Does it include the exam and other fees?
  • How much is on-campus accommodation?
  • How much is off-campus accommodation? (Off-campus apartments, houses, condominiums) Note that it might be cheaper to find off campus accommodation on your own with friends. Is the accommodations near eateries, banks, entertainment, public transportation, safe & secure, etc.?

Student Environment and Activities at the University & College

EduSpiral arranged for me and my mother to meet up with the lecturer at HELP to get a deeper understanding of the course, and also got me a scholarship!
Cavan Stefan at HELP University

  • What is the student culture at the university? (English-speaking environment, ambitious, serious about studies, lifestyle or party university, etc) The language spoken mostly at the college by the students may also matter if you don’t know Mandarin or BM or English. If most of the students speak Mandarin at that university then it will not help you to improve your English. Having a good command of the English language helps you to get good jobs and promotions.
  • Size of the university or college in Malaysia. Some students prefer a large campus with sports facilities and other resources while other students like small colleges with family-like environment. A small college may offer individualised attention, as well as a more intimate and personalised experience. for your studies You might even want to think about how far you want to walk to get from one class to another in a large university campus. Even those little details may affect your decision.
  • Make up of the student body (diversity, international students, gender, etc.) Universities with a good proportion of international students will help you to improve your English language skills since you would need to communicate with them in English. In addition, you will learn about their culture, behaviour and discover new ideas. These skills will be useful to you when you work overseas or in a multi-national company.
  • What are the Extra-curricular activities available? (Student organisations, clubs, sports, etc.)
  • Is the university or college campus a safe area? Safety within the campus and outside.
  • Public vs. Private (STPM is tougher and choice of course & university is determined by the government)

Written by EduSpiral Consultant Services. For more information contact 01111408838

It can be a bit confusing for students after SPM or O-Levels to enter into their diploma course of interest. Many students assume that the entry requirements are the same for all universities in Malaysia. Some students with 3 credits in SPM have checked with TAR University College to find out that their entry requirements is 5 credits for Diploma courses, therefore, they sign up for the 1 year 4 month Certificate Course at TAR University College without realising that the entry requirements for all the rest of the private universities & colleges in Malaysia for Diploma is only 3 SPM Credits. Students should research and check the information carefully before joining any university or college in Malaysia.

Students after SPM or O-Levels interested in a career in Computer Science, Computing, Software Engineering or Information Technology (IT) can go for the 2-year Diploma course at top private universities in Malaysia instead of an external Pre-University Course like SAM, AUSMAT or A-Levels. The Diploma courses are generally cheaper than the external Pre-University programmes and easier. If you do not plan on going overseas for your degree programme, then it is better to go for the Computer Science, Computing, Software Engineering or Information Technology (IT) diploma at a top private university in Malaysia.

To enter into the Diploma in Computer Science, Diploma in Computer StudiesDiploma in Computing, Diploma in Software Engineering or Diploma in Information Technology (IT)students after SPM or O-Levels would need at least 3 credits in the relevant subjects with a pass in BM and Sejarah.

Xavier Phang, Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University

You will need at least 3 credits in SPM including Maths with a pass in BM & Sejarah to join the Computer Studies, Computer Science, Computing, Software Engineering or Information Technology (IT) diploma course in Malaysia. Most Universities will require a  Credit in SPM Maths but there are a few universities in Malaysia that accept SPM 3 credits with a Pass in Maths. Please contact us for the details.

With 3 credits including a Credit in Maths & Passes in BM & Sejarah, you can go for the Diploma in Information Technology, Diploma in Software Engineering, Diploma in Computing, Diploma in Computer Studies or Diploma in Information Communication Technology. After the 2-year diploma, you will then enter into Year 2 of the related degree for another 2 years.

You will need at least 3 credits in SPM and a pass in BM & Sejarah to enter into a Diploma course in Malaysia. To enter TAR University College or TARUC diploma programmes, you need at least 5 relevant credits including English. Some students without a credit in English would sign up for the English course at TAR University College. Most private universities and colleges in Malaysia only require a Pass in English. That’s the only college in Malaysia that requires 5 SPM credits to enter into all of their diploma courses. Students with 3 SPM credits can only enter into the Certificate courses at TAR UC for 1 year 4 months before entering into the Diploma courses.

PTPN Loan for Computer Studies, Computer Science, Computing, Software Engineering or Information Technology (IT) Diploma Course in Malaysia

One advantage of taking the Diploma is that you can apply for the PTPTN loan. You cannot apply for the PTPTN loan for the Foundation course. In addition, for the Diploma, you would be studying subjects that you like.

Transferring your Diploma in Information Technology (IT) to a Degree Course in Malaysia

Not satisfied after completing our diploma at Inti & EduSpiral helped us with the credit transfer. He arranged for us to talk to lecturers & staff at APU to guide us on which IT course to study.
Chin Mun & Li Ching, Business Computing at Asia Pacific University

If you had taken a diploma course, you can transfer your credits into Year 2 of a relevant degree. Taking the Diploma in Information Technology, you can generally be accepted into Year 2 of the Information Technology, Software Engineering, Computer Science, Computing, Cyber Security and other related degree programmes. At some universities, you may not get full exemptions as the subjects may not be similar, so you may have to enter into Year 1 second or final semester.

If you are continuing on to the degree programme at the same university after your diploma, there is no need to do an exemption as it will be automatic.

To perform the exemption exercise to transfer to another university for the degree, you will need to submit the transcripts, course outline for all the subjects that you have taken at the college or university, Letter of Completion and SPM or O-Levels Certificate.

It will take some time to perform the exemptions so you need to submit the documents early.

How to choose the right Computer Studies, Computer Science, Computing, Software Engineering or Information Technology (IT) Diploma Course in Malaysia?

I didn’t come from a rich family. My mother was recommended to EduSpiral who advised us to go for First City University College’s affordable diploma and yet high quality.
Hou Tung, Diploma in IT at First City University College

A lot of students assume that all Diploma in Information Technology (IT) courses at the universities in Malaysia are the same. They are not. It is important when choosing the Computer Studies, Computer Science, Computing, Software Engineering or Information Technology (IT) diploma, to look at the subjects offered.

Some Diploma in IT are more multimedia based while others focus on programming. Some universities in Malaysia could have a diploma with a specialism in software engineering. You have to decide which area you want to focus on in your future career before choosing the college or university, if not, you will end up with a diploma but without the necessary knowledge and skills in IT.

This is important because during interviews for IT jobs, you will be given a test to assess your knowledge in IT. If you do not pass that test, you will not move on to be interviewed. IT is not like a business course, it is technical. If you do not have the necessary knowledge and skills, you will not go far in your career.

A lot of students make the mistake in choosing a cheap university or college in Malaysia because they assume that all Information Technology (IT) diplomas are the same so there is no need to invest more. In saving a few thousand Ringgit for the few years in the diploma, they are throwing away hundreds of thousands in salary increments and promotions for the next 50 years of their work life because they did not gain the knowledge and skills that a good university would provide for them.

What will I study in a Computer Studies, Computer Science, Computing, Software Engineering or Information Technology (IT) diploma Course in Malaysia?

EduSpiral took me & my friends to tour a few universities to help us make the right choice. He then met me & my father for further counseling & to assist in registering.
Horng Yarng, Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

A diploma in Information Technology course provides general knowledge and skills in IT, programming, databases, multimedia and networks. The Diploma in Information Technology equips students with a strong grounding in the basic skills as well as providing a theoretical understanding which is important for an IT graduate.

Students will be exposed to JAVA programming, VB.net, HTML, J2ME, Java Scripting as well as networking and business communication. The modules lead into all aspects of software applications; internet technology; multimedia technology; information systems; operating systems; systems methodologies; visual programming; and database management systems.

Other non-IT courses such as marketing, business communication and problem-solving, among others, are included in the course so that students are equipped with transferable skills that will enable them to work efficiently both independently and in teams.

EduSpiral arranged for me and my mother to meet up with the lecturer at HELP to get a deeper understanding of the course, and also got me a scholarship!
Cavan Stefan, IT at HELP University

Students will normally take about 24-25 subjects not including the MQA subjects which are Bahasa Kebangsaan, Moral, and Pengajian Malaysia. The MQA subjects are compulsory at all colleges and universities.

In the Computer Studies, Computing, or Information Technology (IT) diploma you will learn a bit about all the components of the IT or computing field.

So, you don’t need to worry about which specialisation yet for your diploma. After completing the diploma, you will have a clearer picture on whether you want to specialise in software engineering, computer science, networking, cyber security, etc.

So, Which is the Best College or University in Malaysia to studyComputer Studies, Computer Science, Computing, Software Engineering or Information Technology (IT) Diploma Course?

EduSpiral took us around to tour the campus and the hostel giving me & my family the assurance that we are making the right choice.
Jerry Cheong, Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

EduSpiral Consultant Services has worked in the education industry for more than 15 years counseling thousands of students. We represent many reputable and top universities in Malaysia. Every student is different, therefore, we have to talk to each person and treat them like an individual to find out which university is the best that would suit their personality, financial and career goals.

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.

Many students in Malaysia also make the common mistake in choosing a university because their friends are going there. I even had one student tell me that his choice of university depends on where his girlfriend is going! This is one of the most important decisions that may change your life forever hence it should not be taken lightly.

At EduSpiral Consultant Services, I have worked in the private higher education industry in Malaysia for more than 15 years advising students with facts and evidence on how to choose the right course after SPM. You should carefully think about what are the options available to you. To choose the best course that fits you, students may fill up our EduSpiral Career Assessment form for evaluation.

The EduSpiral Career Assessment form is a simple form designed by us that gathers information from students after SPM, O-Levels, UEC, STPM or A-Levels in order to assess their aptitude helping us to determine the most suitable course and career progression. After knowing which course, we can then determine which private university in best for that course.

Software Engineering is the field of studying, devising and building a practical solution to a problem. The objective of a software engineer is to understand a problem within a computer and create software that eases the problem. Computer Science is a field that deals with the scientific and practical approach to computing and all of its applications. A computer scientist focuses on the theory of computation and its applications.

The popularity of computers & technology has resulted in greater interest in computer-based courses in Malaysia. These include dividing the computer into hardware, software, programming and many other fields. These courses divide the many different aspects that make a computer. Software Engineering (SE) and Computer Science (CS) are two different fields that are used in computing. Many people that even perform jobs in Software Engineering field often possess Computer Science degrees. Because of such instances, many students are confused about Computer Science and Software Engineering.

objective of a software engineer is to understand a problem within a computer and create software that eases the problem. This could include either manipulating existing software or creating a new one from scratch. Software is required to make computer function. This job is mostly a team effort. Engineers group together with programmers in order to build a software that works with the system at hand.

Computing consists of several fields, and many respected colleges and universities offer undergraduate
degree programs in several of them such as computer science, computer engineering, information
systems, information technology, software engineering, and more. These computing fields are related but
also quite different from each other. The programs represent a number of computing disciplines.

Software engineering had emerged as an area within computer science. As computing is used to attack
a wider range of complex problems, creating reliable software becomes more difficult. With large,
complex programs, no one person can understand the entire program, and various parts of the program
can interact in unpredictable ways. (For example, fixing a bug in one part of a program can create new
bugs elsewhere.)

While computer science (like other sciences) focuses on creating new knowledge, software engineering

(like other engineering disciplines) focuses on rigorous methods for designing and building things that reliably do what they’re supposed to do.

Universities in Malaysia typically offer two computing majors: Computer Science and Software Engineering. There is a huge overlap between the subjects offered in these two majors. Even the career paths of these degrees overlap.

Programmers, software developers and computer scientists all serve different roles in the technology industry, but there is much similarity regarding skill sets, and overall there is a lot of crossover between the various fields.

The difference between the three roles really comes down to focus. All of these professionals can program computers, but programmers are focused on writing perfect, elegant code, whereas computer scientists are often more focused on theory, and software developers tend to be jacks of all trades with leadership skills who get placed in charge of software projects.

How does Computer Science differ from Software Engineering? Computer Science concentrates on core concepts and technologies involved in programming a computer. It involves learning programming languages, databases, operating systems, graphics, robotics and other sophisticated technologies. A computer science graduate is proficient in designing and building software, developing computing solutions and innovating better approaches to addressing computing challenges.
Finally, the coursework briefly explores software engineering subjects such as software development life-cycle and software product measurement. Software Engineering, on the other hand, focuses on designing and building large software systems. It teaches you to manage the whole software development life-cycle such as requirements gathering, software architecture, building prototypes, implementation, testing, deployment and maintenance. In addition to the software development process, this field concentrates on topics such as software team communication, and software product measurement, estimation and analysis.
Software engineering does involve learning certain core computer science concepts and programming, but it does not explore it as much in depth as done in Computer Science.Computer science focuses more on the technical skills, algorithms and other core sciences. In contrast, customer satisfaction is the goal of software engineering. A software engineer must be able to develop software that adheres to the requirements of the customer.

Companies hire based on skill set. They do not specifically look for degrees in software engineering. Once hired, most companies start with the title of Software Engineer regardless of your major. It is also common place for computer science graduates to move into software engineering roles as they gain experience.

A typical career path of a computer science graduate involves application development and innovation. In the industry, this translates to software product development. For this reason, programming and networking jobs is the domain of computer science graduates. In academia, computer science graduates work on innovations in computer science theory and algorithms. This involves advanced graduate work that typically leads to a Ph.D. degree.

When a position requires development of large software systems, both computer science and software engineering graduates are potential candidates. Skill set and the amount of software engineering coursework undertaken during the program determines the suitability of the candidate. It is interesting to note that most of the software engineers today are computer science graduates and not software engineers. This is partly because software engineering is a relatively new degree compared to the computer science degrees that are available for more than 30 years.

Computer Science is the study of computer systems including algorithmic processes and the principles involved in the design of hardware and software.

Computer scientists are primarily concerned with the design of algorithms, languages, hardware architecture, systems software, applications software and tools. Applications range from simple game playing to the control of space vehicles, power plants and factories, from banking machines to intelligent fault and medical diagnosis. Computer professionals, in short, are concerned with the creation of computer and information systems for the benefit of society.

Computer science spans a wide range, from its theoretical and algorithmic foundations to cutting-edge
developments in robotics, computer vision, intelligent systems, bioinformatics, and other exciting areas.
We can think of the work of computer scientists as falling into three categories.

  1. They design and implement software. Computer scientists take on challenging programming jobs.

    They also supervise other programmers, keeping them aware of new approaches.

  2. They devise new ways to use computers. Progress in the CS areas of networking, database, and
    human-computer-interface enabled the development of the World Wide Web. Now CS researchers are working with scientists from other fields to make robots become practical and intelligent aides, to use databases to create new knowledge, and to use computers to help decipher the secrets of our DNA.
  3. They develop effective ways to solve computing problems. For example, computer scientists develop
    the best possible ways to store information in databases, send data over networks, and display complex images. Their theoretical background allows them to determine the best performance possible, and their study of algorithms helps them to develop new approaches that provide better performance.

Computer science spans the range from theory through programming. Curricula that reflect this breadth

are sometimes criticized for failing to prepare graduates for specific jobs. While other disciplines may
produce graduates with more immediately relevant job-related skills, computer science offers a
comprehensive foundation that permits graduates to adapt to new technologies and new ideas.

Computer Science (CS or CompSci) is a field that deals with the scientific and practical approach to computing and all of its applications. Believe it or not, computer science came long before the development of computers. Computing was done since the time of the abacus. A computer scientist focuses on the theory of computation and its applications.

The study of computer science began even before the development of the first computer; it started with the development of machines for calculations such as the abacus. When it was clear that the computer were being designed for more purposes than just normal mathematical calculations, the field of computer science was broadened to study the computer systems that we have today. The first accredited degree for computer science was offered by the University of Cambridge in 1953 in the UK and by Purdue University in 1962 in the US.

Computer science has more to do with theory of the computer and its computing abilites rather than

hands-on applications. Computer science is basically the ability to solve a problem or getting the computer to do something without the help of a human. This field of data is not directly affected by the humans. Computing can also be done by hand and is used by many fields that are not related to primarily developing computers.

Scientists focus on developing algorithms that can create, alter and change the data depending on what they would like. The commands that the computer follows are done by certain algorithm that tells it what to do. Computer science can also be divided into two specializations: theoretical computer science and applied computer sciences.  The theoretical science focuses on the classical theory of computation, along with other more abstract, logical, and mathematical aspects of computing. The applied computer sciences cover topics such as artificial intelligence, computer architecture and engineering, graphic designing, computing science, etc. It deals with mainly applications or additional programs.

Computer science requires a strong mathematical and scientific background. Depending on colleges, the courses may vary in teaching subjects. While some collages prefer teaching theoretical aspect of computer science, others focus on advanced programming. Courses include Theoretical computer science, Theory of computation, Information and coding theory, Algorithms and data structures, Programming language theory, Formal methods, Concurrent, parallel and distributed systems, Databases and information retrieval, Artificial intelligence, Computer architecture and engineering, Computer graphics and visualization, Computer security and cryptography, etc.

Computers are everywhere today, and the job market reflects this. Communication in all of its forms telephone, television, networks depend on complex and extremely reliable software. Vehicles, ships, aircrafts, and satellites are all controlled by computers.

Modern medical care depends on imaging techniques that in turn depend on computation. Businesses, from the local bank to the international on-line store, rely on secure access to networks and databases.

The booming entertainment industry with video games and movie animation that today flourishes in Montreal, also has a large demand for programmers and designers.

With a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science you are qualified to design and create new software and also to modify, and test existing software for computerized applications in a broad range of business and industry. You may also be required to devise new and more efficient algorithms and techniques.

Software Engineering is the practice of designing and implementing large, reliable, efficient and economical software by applying the principles and practices of engineering.

Many subjects that are learned in Software Engineering is similar to the ones learned in Computer Science, but it also includes additional subjects such as requirements engineering, software architecture, software testing, and software deployment. Other areas that play an importance in this field include leadership, communication, time management, people management, etc. The engineers must plan out the best way to tackle the situation at hand and create a step by step process on how to accomplish this task. They may require to code in certain time, but most of the coding is done by programmers. A software engineer requires a background in software creation, programming languages, mathematics and computer hardware.

Software engineers when developing software go through a software process. This software process model

is an abstraction of software process and is also known as process paradigms. The first published model for the software process is known as the Waterfall model. When a software is being made it must first be conceptualized on the paper, following which the program is designed and then asked to be written. The software then goes through vigorous testing and a soft release before it is made public. According to Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge, a widely accepted standard; software engineering can be divided into ten sub-disciplines: Software requirements, software design, software construction, software testing, software maintenance, software configuration management, software engineering management, software engineering process and software quality.

Software engineers learn much more about creating high-quality software in a systematic, controlled, and efficient manner. Software engineers are trained in all aspects of the software life cycle, from specification through analysis and design, to testing maintenance and evaluation of the product. They are concerned with safety and reliability of the product as well as cost and schedule of the development process.

Software Engineering has its roots in the theory and mathematics of computer science. While its study has a lot in common with computer science, software engineers learn much more about creating high-quality software in a systematic, controlled, and efficient manner. Software engineers are trained in all aspects of the software life cycle, from specification through analysis and design, to testing maintenance and evaluation of the product. They are concerned with safety and reliability of the product as well as cost and schedule of the development process.

Software engineering is the discipline of developing and maintaining software systems that behave
reliably and efficiently, are affordable to develop and maintain, and satisfy all the requirements that
customers have defined for them. More recently, it has evolved in response to factors such as the growing impact of large and expensive software systems in a wide range of situations and the increased importance of software in safety-critical applications.

Software engineering is different in character from other engineering disciplines due to both the
intangible nature of software and the discontinuous nature of software operation. It seeks to integrate the
principles of mathematics and computer science with the engineering practices developed for tangible,
physical artifacts. Prospective students in Malaysia can expect to see software engineering presented in two contexts.

  • Degree programs in computer science offer one or more software engineering courses as elements of
    the Computer Science curriculum. Some offer a multi-course concentration in software engineering within Computer Science.
  • A number of institutions offer a software engineering degree program.

Degree programs in computer science and in software engineering have many subjects in common.
Software engineering students learn more about software reliability and maintenance and focus more on
techniques for developing and maintaining software that is correct from its inception. While CS students
are likely to have heard of the importance of such techniques, the engineering knowledge and experience
provided in Software Engineering programs go beyond what Computer Science programs can provide.

The importance of this fact is so great that one of the recommendations of the Software Engineering report is that, during their program of study, students of Software Engineering should participate in the development of software to be used in earnest by others. Software Engineering students learn how to assess customer needs and develop usable software that meets those needs. Knowing how to provide genuinely useful and usable software is of paramount importance.

In the workplace, the term software engineer is a job label. There is no standard definition for this term
when used in a job description. Its meaning varies widely among employers. It can be a title equivalent to
computer programmer or a title for someone who manages a large, complex, and/or safety-critical
software project. The layman must be mindful not confuse the discipline of software engineering with the
ambiguous use of the term software engineer as used in employment advertisements and job titles.

What subjects in SPM or O-Levels do I need to be good at in order to study Software Engineering in Malaysia?

MATHS! If you want to study Software Engineering, you will need to be good in Mathematics. You should have an “A” in SPM for Additional Maths or at least a strong credit. Students always make the mistake of choosing to study Software Engineering because they like to play with computers. If you don’t have a strong foundation in Maths, you should choose some other course.

Software Engineers need to use different programming languages, depending on the purpose of the program. The programming languages most often used are C, C++, and Java, with Fortran and COBOL used less commonly. Other programming languages that are in high demand are HTML, XHTML, XML, PHP, Visual Basic.

With the growth of smart phones comes with it the demand for the programming languages related to it such as the programming language, Objective C, and its software development tool (XCode) for the iOS market.

Software Engineers will also need to have a strong foundation in computer science, logic and mathematics.

Software engineers are involved in the design and development of a variety of software, including computer games, word processing and business applications, operating systems and network distribution, and compilers, which convert programs to machine language for execution on a computer.

They also install, configure and maintain software systems used by commercial or manufacturing companies. They can work with the company to coordinate each department’s needs such as ordering, billing, inventory, payroll, and records.

Software Engineers could also help set up the company’s intranets or networks that link computers within the company. This helps the communication between the departments. To develop tailor-made software systems,

Software Engineers will begin by meeting up with the client to gather information on what they would like for the software to achieve. They need to gain a thorough understanding of the client’s business and information needs, and analyse the current system.

After that, they will then analyse the information and then begin to design, develop and test the software in real situations. Software Engineers will create detailed sets of instructions, called algorithms. The algorithms tell the computer what to do. They also are used to convert instructions into a computer language. This process is called programming or coding. Software Engineers must be experts in operating systems and middleware to ensure that the underlying systems will work properly.

Software Engineers can also develop “off-the-shelf” or “ready-made’ software packages that can be integrated into an existing operating system. The ability to integrate the software requires a thorough knowledge of the software packages and programming languages.

They will need to provide the appropriate interfaces to be used to integrate them. Software Engineers works with in a team to design new hardware, software, and systems. The team may consist of engineering, marketing, manufacturing, and design people, who work together to release a product.

Software Engineers need to ensure that their knowledge is up-to-date as technology changes rapidly. Computer software can be developed for any function for control and automation, manufacturing, business, and management systems. Restaurants use custom-made software to ensure their accounts are kept properly and orders for food can be made efficiently so that wastage is managed.

EduSpiral Consultant Services has worked with our partner universities and colleges for many years while the counselors at the private universities or agents’ offices change every few years therefore they would not have the in-depth knowledge of the courses and the university that they are working at.

At EduSpiral Consultant Services, I have worked in the private higher education industry in Malaysia for more than 15 years advising students with facts and evidence on how to choose the right course after SPM. You should carefully think about what are the options available to you. To choose the best course that fits you, students may fill up our EduSpiral Career Assessment form for evaluation.

The EduSpiral Career Assessment form is a simple form designed by us that gathers information from students after SPM, O-Levels, UEC, STPM or A-Levels in order to assess their aptitude helping us to determine the most suitable course and career progression.

Step 3: Choose to Study the Bachelor’s Degree at a Top University in Malaysia

A bachelor’s degree is usually the minimum education requirement for computer software engineering jobs in Malaysia. Those who work with applications typically major in software engineering, computer science or mathematics. Courses in a computer science undergraduate program may include computer fundamentals, data structures, principles of programming languages, software engineering and computer architecture.

Students must choose a top university in Malaysia for computer software engineering in order to gain the necessary knowledge and skills to be successful in this career.

A good university would have a solid internship programme in place. Employers in Malaysia may prefer to hire those who have relevant experience in addition to a bachelor’s degree. Students can participate in internships during their undergraduate education to enhance their employment prospects. Internships also enable students to gain hands-on experience and learn new skills from professionals in the industry.

Step 4: Get Professional Certificate During your Studies in Software Engineering in Malaysia

Gain professional certification. Obtaining certification can demonstrate a certain level of competence and make job applicants more competitive.

Product vendors, software firms and professional computing societies, such as the Institute for Certification of Computer Professionals (ICCP), Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP), Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) and many more offer certification programmes in Malaysia.

Students who seek certification from a product vendor or software firm may be required to work with the company’s products, while certification from a professional computing society typically requires a series of examinations, maintenance of membership and periodical recertification.

Step 5: Gain Related Experience and Skills in your Job in Malaysia

Since computer software engineers design new software programs, they should have a high degree of creativity. They should also have strong problem-solving, mathematical and analytical skills, as well as the ability to work with abstract concepts. Communication skills are also important since they must interact with hardware engineers, industrial designers, manufacturing operations personnel and end users to develop software products. An entry-level position, such as a computer support specialist or computer technician, can help prospective engineers develop these skills and obtain hands-on experience in the field.
