(applicable to 2015 intake and thereafter)


The Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) Programme enables professionals to upgrade their technical capabilities in the areas of computer networks and the Internet, information security, data science, and multimedia, mobile and e-commerce technologies.

To be awarded the MSc in Computer Science degree, a student must acquire a minimum of 30 credits, in which 12 credits come from the required courses and 18 credits from the elective courses. Up to 9 credits can be transferred based on the student's previous study. The MSCS programme can be completed in one year in the full-time mode, or two years in the part-time mode.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Computer Science (PGDCS) is an intermediate award which a student may obtain after the completion of 24 credits (including all required courses) with satisfactory results if the student decides not to continue with the MSCS Programme.
