Master of Advanced IT (MAIT) Details

Scientists studying problems in biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics or medicine and designers dealing withproblems in engineering, industry, architecture or the arts increasingly depend on technology to assist them intheir work. Computational Science is an emerging multi-disciplinary field that brings together computers andscience with mathematical modeling, numerical computation and graphical data visualization. In response to the needs of today’s IT professional to enhance their skills and knowledge, the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology (FCSIT) is offering a Masters of Advanced IT (MAIT) Program. The objectives of this program are: :: To equip students with advance knowledge in the area of Information Technology; and :: To produce higher caliber IT graduates who are key players in the global arena. The Program is offered on a full-time and part-time basis through a combination of courses and project. The Program is open to candidates from the IT industry who wants to tailor their post-graduate studies according to their needs or that of their employers. MAIT courses provide the candidates with a wide and in-depth knowledge of the areas of information technology and its state-of-the-art applications. Program will be offered at our UNIMAS Campus. Candidates must complete the following modules: 1. Four Core Courses, totaling 16 credits 2. Four Specialisation Courses, totaling 16 credits 3. Two Research Courses, totaling 4 credits 4. An Advanced Project

Upon successful completion of the programme, students would be capable of analyzing data and modeling solutions for scientific industrial investigations by using advanced computer techniques and technology.
