Overview

This programme aims to prepare students at the postgraduate level with computer science knowledge and computing principles to analyse and solve real-world computing problems. These knowledge and principles are built on combinations of data analysis and computing in sustainability with lifelong learning. Essentially, in this programme, students will be expected to come up with solutions using computer science and technology for effective decision making, forecasting, investing and budget planning. One of the objectives is to produce leaders with advanced soft skills to do research in groups and provide solutions scientifically and solve problems critically.
