APU-DMU Dual Degree Scheme
This programme is specifically designed to provide students with:
DEGREE LEVEL 1
Students will learn fundamental skills required by every IT professional, and the basic understanding of the underlying computer system through Computer Architecture, operating systems, networking and databases. Some specialised modules will provide them basic knowledge of security and computer forensics. The modules will also help them develop personal and organisational skills, as well as nurture creativity and innovation.
DEGREE LEVEL 2
A broader range of skills will be learnt, in which students will gain a better understanding of frameworks and planning techniques for the strategic management of information systems, along with specialised skills and knowledge required to critically evaluate and refine information systems security strategies and programmes. Students will gain solid technical knowledge of computer systems security with the appreciation to human security policies and actions. We will further nurture their creativity and innovation as well as independent learning to prepare them for the workplace.
INTERNSHIP (16 weeks)
After the completion of Level 2 students will undertake a short Internship / Industrial Training. This will prepare them for a smooth transition from the classroom to the world of Computer Science.
DEGREE LEVEL 3
Students will make use of their previous studies and industrial experience to extend their familiarity in a broad range of information technologies and to refine their persona and professional development. Students will enhance their programming skills and move further into the areas of cloud computing and big data. A final year project requires them to investigate and develop a solution for a real-world problem - they will demonstrate their ability to combine technical knowledge, critical thinking and analytical skills to produce a personal achievement portfolio.
Note: The specialism will appear only in the academic transcript.
