5. Rationale of the Programme

B.Sc.(Hons) Internet and Multimedia Computing

This innovative course merges the two very demanding and closely related
technologies; Internet and Multimedia into one comprehensive course. The major
aim is at producing multimedia developers with Internet programming experience.

With the current phenomenal growth of the Internet and the usage of multimedia
elements in our current daily life, it will be a plus for students to master these two
very demanding and challenging fields. This course will not only enhance the
students‟ underlying theory of existing Internet and Multimedia technologies but also
emphasizes on the development of practical applications.

This programme is highly practical in nature with lots of hands-on session in the
Multimedia Laboratory. Students are exposed to specific areas which include
Multimedia Technology, Computer Graphics and Animations, Digital Video and
Sound Technology, Internet Programming, Web Design and Applications, and
object-oriented programming (JAVA).

To ensure a well-rounded and holistic education, the programme also incorporates
soft skills courses like employability skills, critical thinking skills, technical writing and
etc. Compulsory internship has been incorporated into the programme, ensuring that
students gain relevant and real-world work experience before graduating.

Upon completing the degree the graduates can embark on careers such as
multimedia application developer, web developer, animator, multimedia consultant,
multimedia production specialist, visualization specialist and multimedia designer.

missed during the period of absence.

The disciplinary consequence for unexcused class absenteeism from a given course
is stated below:

Malaysian Student
After the 3rd absence             First warning letter is issued
