University holds Open Day in JB focusing on courses at its Sarawak campus

Academic staff and course counsellors will be on hand to guide potential students at the Open Day.

JOHOR BARU: Students keen to learn more about accredited courses offered by Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus (Swinburne Sarawak) can come to its open day tomorrow at KSL Hotel, Johor Baru, from 12pm to 5pm.

The Open Day will also be held in other cities, including Ipoh (July 28) and Penang (July 29).

The university’s academic staff and course counsellors will provide details to interested students and parents on the courses available at Swinburne Sarawak.

On-the-spot application, as well as information on scholarships and financial aids are also available.

Swinburne Sarawak’s head of School of Computing, Associate Professor Patrick Then said the university was also known for its Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and computing programmes.

“As global demand across industries for graduates with degrees in ICT and computing continues to rise, so is the interest from students who recognise this shift as the world moves into Industry 4.0.

“At Swinburne Sarawak, enrolments for ICT and computing programmes have doubled year on year with the launch of two new majors in Cybersecurity and Internet of Things (IoT),” he said.

He added that this was a testament to the confidence students and parents had in the university as a market leader in technology-related programmes.

“Our computing courses in Computer Science have majors in Software Development, Cybersecurity and Internet of Things (IoT).

“Meanwhile, ICT has majors in Software Technology and Network Technology,” Assoc Prof Then said.

He added that the computing and ICT programmes were also recognised by the Australian Computer Society.

Students attending the Open Day are advised to bring along their identification card and birth certificate (Malaysia students) or passport (international students), original academic transcript and original English language proficiency test result for on-the-spot application purposes.
