Diploma of Computer Science

Diploma Computer Science or also known as DCS strive to expose students to the knowledge and understanding of Computer Science whilst producing students who are informative, skillful and experienced to fulfill the current semi-professional work force requirements. Besides that, this program is centered upon preparing the students for further studies.


Upon completion of this program students should be able to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge and understand the theory and principles of Computer Science
  • Use appropriate techniques, skills and tools in computer science practices
  • Demonstrate social skills and responsibilities
  • Demonstrate behaviours that are consistent with the professional and ethical responsibility
  • Present technical solutions and work effectively in a team to complete a software development project
  • Execute tasks and solve problems that comply with principles of computer science
  • Perpetually seek and acquire contemporary knowledge
  • Apply managerial and entrepreneurial skills
  • Master information and understanding of Computer Science
  • Utilize appropriate techniques, skills and tools in practicing Computer Science
  • Develop marketable software with commercial values accepted by the global market

Besides that, students should have aquired generic abilities allowing them to:

  • Solve problems concerning Computer Science (problem solving)
  • Effectively communicate in group activities (communication skills and team working)
  • Engage in continous learning and exploration (learning capabilities)
  • Motivated, disciplined, ethical (good values)


Graduates of UMP are equipped with skills in Computer Science and softskills as an added value which allows them to build a career as:

  • Assistant Software Engineer
  • Computer Programmer
  • Web Application Developer
  • Computer Application Developer
  • Assistant Information System Administrator
  • Computer System Analyst
  • Assistant IT Manager
  • Technical Consultant
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Technoprenuer



The tables below shows a brief outline of the outcome of this program.

Academic year Intended outcome
First year Exposure to the basics of Computer science and Software Engineering. Practical approach to programming, problem solving, architecture and organization of computers and the fundametals of mathematics and logic for for Computer Science students.
Second year Exposure of the disciplines of Computer Science at an analytical level. Emphasis is focused on problem solving and optimization in terms of processing engine and inter-system interface design. Attention is also given to the development and design of database systems, documentation and development of systems, web programming and math courses at a more intermediate level.
Third year Emphasis is put on the data communication and operating systems of computers. The main objective is completed with the development of Project Tahun Akhir (Final Year Project) which requires students to be more independent in producing a complete application. It is implemented in integrating the skills acquired by students in the form of writing and presentation. At the end of the semester, qualified students will undergo Industrial Training in the industrial sector whereas the rest will be enrolled in activities similar to Industrial Training carried out at computer labs of FSKKP.
