Faculty of Information and Communication Technology (FTMK) was one of the earliest formed faculty at Kolej UniversitiTeknikal Malaysia (KUTKM) on the 1st of December 2000. The Faculty started to operate on 22 June 2001 with its pioneer batch of students of academic session 2001/2002. Since 1st February 2007, Kolej Universiti Teknikal Malaysia (KUTKM) is known as Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM)
The Faculty established five (5) departments as below:
Department of Software Engineering
Department of Computer System & Communication
Department of Interactive Media
Department of Intelligent Computing & Analytics
Department of Diploma Studies
DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER SYSTEM AND COMMUNICATION
Computer System and Communication is a sub field of computer and telecommunication. The Internet is created based on communication systems that produce a complex computer networks which is built for in-home LAN, LANs, MANs, WANs, mobile networks and massive global Internet in order to share information and having a human conversation with one another. Due to the necessity of computer networks towards the use of Internet in daily activities, Bachelor of Computer networking and Bachelor of Computer Security are introduced and act as the major bachelor programmes offered by Department of Computer System and Communication, to fulfil the nation’s need. Besides, students who have undergo this course are not only be knowledgeable and become expert in the area but also equipped with the professional certification for career advancement such as CompTIA and Cisco Academy certifications. Thus, students are more confident, creative and ready to face the challenges in real life in working environment.
In addition, throughout this programme, students are provided with fundamental of information technology subjects and are exposed with more advanced subjects that comprises of planning, designing, developing, troubleshooting and managing computer systems, computer networks and network security.
DEPARTMENT OF INTELLIGENT COMPUTING & ANALYTICS
Malaysia’s vision to become a developed country by 2020 must to be supported by knowledge content in advanced industrial technology. A higher automation rate can reduce labour force utilisation and ultimately increases productivity. Utilisation of information technology has been proven able to boost industrial development. Therefore, the country needs experienced and competent manpower to apply information technology knowledge and skills in the industrial sectors. The Department of Intelligent Computing & Analytics is established to fulfil such aspiration by focusing on ICT applications in selected industries particularly manufacturing, business, health and tourism.
DEPARTMENT OF INTERACTIVE MEDIA
The Department of Interactive Media offers undergraduate and graduate programmes in the area of multimedia. In addition to the basic courses in ICT, the programmes offered by this department focus on the concept of interactivity in the design and development of high-quality multimedia products and web sites. This also includes applying the knowledge of interactivity in the area of computer graphics, animation, digital audio video technology, virtual reality and computer games development. With the emphasis on training and hands-on approach, we believe that the graduates are able to fulfil the job markets in the field of multimedia.
DEPARTMENT OF SOFTWARE ENGINEERING
Software Engineering is a field of knowledge about computer software development using structured methods, techniques and schemes. In line with this, the Department of Software Engineering offers two bachelor programmes of Computer Science namely Software Development and Database Management. This department plays a major role in producing competent and professional software engineers to design and develop highly sophisticated and complex applications including Intelligent Systems. Our programmes have been designed carefully to produce professionals in software engineering with a combination of various technical aspects, soft skills and ethics. The graduates are expected to understand the users, software and system requirements, competent in applying emerging software technologies design, manage, perform testing, maintain and develop the system with software engineering methodology. We also ensure that our graduates are equipped with project management skills, work ethics, risk management knowledge and the importance of team work in software development processes. The objective of specialization in Database Management is to produce skilled professionals in Database Management. The course equips the graduates with various skills such as database analysis, design and development based on the system specifications. The students will also be exposed to data warehouse and data mining techniques. Application oriented approach could also produce highly competitive and creative software engineers in the job market.
DEPARTMENT OF DIPLOMA STUDIES
Department of Diploma Studies is aimed to produce trained students in the field of computer technology and commercial computer application to meet the high demands from the government and private sectors. The programme is intended to produce students with knowledge in computer applications and programming. The students will also obtain professional certification as CCNA.
