Postgraduate

Thank you for visiting the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Systems Postgraduate Studies and Research website at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia.  I would like to particularly extend a warm welcome to prospective students, parents, friends, alumni and industry partners who are looking to gain insight into our unique postgraduate education and research services.  The faculty has entered a new, exciting, and challenging era. We are creating a preeminent world-class computer science and informatics institute known for its pursuit of excellence in academic programs, leading-edge research, and impact on local and global economic development and quality of life.

Our programs provide students with a firm technical foundation; also knowledge of the organizational and industrial context of computer science and information systems and a vision of the possibilities of emerging fields. We are committed to the delivery of excellent post graduate programs as well as the pursuit of first class research in all major computer science and informatics disciplines and a growing number of interdisciplinary fields such as Bioinformatics.

For the 2011-2012 academic year, there are approximately 1098 post graduate students in the faculty. Apart from Malaysians, our student body consist of students, lecturers, researchers and professionals from Indonesia, Thailand, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Maldives, Myanmar, Vietnam, China, Yemen, Chad, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Sudan and Nigeria. To date, we have 85 graduate faculty staffs (who are Professors, Associate professors and PhD holders). Many of our alumni have impressive records of employment and research achievements, and some are currently enrolled in the most prestigious graduate schools. Our graduates are in demand by science-based industries and universities throughout the country.

In addition to our educational programs, research is a most important aspect of the faculty. As such, the faculty is in a position to generate new knowledge by the pursuit of high quality research and to foster economic development through cooperative research and technology transfer with the private sector. Within the faculty, there are several outstanding research facilities including the Artificial Intelligent and Bioinformatics Lab, the Computer Graphics and Multimedia Lab, the Information Systems and Database lab, the Industrial Computing Lab, and the Computer and Network Security Lab. The faculty is proud to have members who direct active research programs and who have received national and international recognition and awards. During the 8th Malaysian Plan (2001-2005), the faculty manage to secure over RM8 million in terms of research grants. Many of our postgraduates have the opportunity to work in research laboratories, under the guidance and supervision of renowned professors. I look forward to welcoming you as a post graduate student at the faculty and your collaboration with our faculty and hope that you will continue further interactions with my office.
