Dean's Message

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

Selamat Sejahtera

First and foremost, Alhamdulillah to Allah swt, for giving us the best health and condition to continue our task. Welcome to our website faculty and please explore many of interesting programmes and events at our faculty. 

In order to maintain our teaching and learning quality, our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes are continuously reviewed by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and external examiners from other universities and various industries. Last year, our graduate employability rate reaches to 91%. All of the staff in the faculty play an important role to this great achievement. Our curriculum promotes both theory and technical skills and applies critical and analytical skills in computer science. We also emphasize on the soft skills throughout the learning. Under our Service-based Learning project, through the course of Technopreneuship and Product Development, the students had served the community in developing websites, systems, video and IT training. Up to date, there are more than 100 IT projects successfully delivered to the villagers and schools at Kuching, Kota Samarahan and Sibu by the students.

We also would like you to explore our expertise in research, where we have four research clusters, which are Affordable Ubiquitous Access (AUA), Software Engineering Workbench (SEW), , Knowledge Technology (KT) and Computational Modelling (COMO). Under the faculty, we also have two centre of excellence, known as Tourism Innovation Center (TIC) lead by Prof Dr Wang Yin Chai and Big Data Analytic and Visualisation which lead by Associate Prof Dr Johari bin Abdullah.

Besides, we proudly present the extensive makerspace lab under Dr Sze San Nah and the gamification centre lead by Dr Jacey Lynn Minoi, the first ever in Malaysia. We also have cultural and heritage lab which lead by Dr Dayang Hanani and Dr Nadianatra to highlight our related research in community.

We hope that FCSIT continuously grow and stamp a significant existence to the University, State, Country and to the World. Come and join us into this beautiful journey!
