Career Prospect – Bachelor of Computer Science (Bioinformatics)

Career Prospects

Students who have completed their studies have promising and secure career opportunity because they can choose to work in the following three sectors:
  • Bioinformatics
  • Computer Science (ICT)
  • Biology (Biotechnology, pharmaceutical and agriculture)

Based on yearly statistics, more than 90% of the students who have completed their studies, had succeeded in getting jobs (either in Malaysia or overseas) or pursue their studies (either at PhD or Masters level) early (before their graduation day). On the other hand, for those who fail in being appointed would usually get their job within a short period of time upon graduating.
