WELCOME to the Faculty of Information Science and Technology (FIST) at the Multimedia University (MMU) and thank you for your interest in our educational programs. Whether you are an eager new student or interested parent, I hope you find our website informative and valuable.
We are committed to offer quality programs that prepare our students to meet rigorous demands of the national and international job market. As a result, all the undergraduate and postgraduate programs in the faculty, for which accreditation is available, are fully accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). As a provider of world-class education, the FIST offers innovative and rigorous academic programs with strong integration of theory and practice components taught by renowned faculty, giving our students the opportunity to become lifelong learners who are critical thinkers able to evaluate problems and to develop creative real-world solutions.
Besides state-of-the-art facilities, the faculty is staffed by dedicated and supportive staff with relevant expertise and working experiences to support academic programs and to spearhead innovative research at faculty and university levels. Two research centres, Centre for Ubiquitous Computing and Communication, and Centre for Information Security have been set up to promote and coordinate research that is relevant to the faculty's and university's strategic interests. All the members in the centre are challenging to create new scientific realms in addition to yielding continuously fruitful achievements in their particular fields.
The faculty prepares students for future success, not only in our programs and majors, but also in other professional certifications in computer technology through Cisco Networking Academy, Microsoft IT Academy, Oracle Workforce Development Program, Novell Academic Training Partner, Linux Professional Institute, EC-Council and Goggle Web Academy. We've established strong partnerships with these vendor-specific certifications bodies for our students to take up the additional professional certified courses to equip themselves with cutting edge competencies.
