Foundation in Information Technology

In an ever-changing, technologically dependent world, our one-year Foundation in Information Technology programme aims to produce students who are well-equipped with computer skills as well as strong mathematical and physics skills. The programme is delivered through engaging lectures and laboratory work that serve to build knowledge and help develop practical skills.

After completion of the Foundation in Information Technology programme, students can opt to continue for a degree programme from either the Faculty of Computing and Informatics (FCI) or Faculty of Information Science and Technology (FIST).
