The SAS EDGE


The Sunway School of Computer Technology (SCT) is the first in Malaysia to be
given full rights by SAS Institute Inc. USA (SAS) to run a specialisation in the areas
of Business Intelligence and Data Mining for our popular BSc (Hons) Information
Systems (BIS) degree programme.
A selected group of Business Intelligence and Data Mining subjects, which is
part of the BIS programme, has been recognised by SAS for the qualification of
the certificate of Business Intelligence programme. Upon completion of the four
required subjects and a group/final year project related to Business Intelligence
and Data Mining, BIS students will be awarded this special certificate.
The School is honoured to have many large corporations such as Sunway Tun
Hussein Onn Library, Alliance Bank and EON Bank endorsing this programme. A
number of industry advisors are engaged by SCT to ensure good real-world data
sets and realistic problems are formulated by consultation with industry advisors.
Innovation Hub

Excellent Research
School of Computer Technology is a hotbed of innovation and recipient of numerous research grants with four research
groups currently working on exciting projects:
• Network and Ubiquitous Computing Research Group focuses on mobility management protocols such as agent based
mobility management and ad hoc mobile routing protocols for the MANET. The Department’s research laboratories’
facilities provide cutting edge IPv6 support along with other mobility deployment equipments.
• Multimedia and Information Systems Research Group deals with the integration of the latest information system
technologies with cutting edge multimedia advancement.
• Intelligent System and Robotics Engineering Research Group works in dedicated robotics lab provided
by the School and is oriented towards hardware engineering and the artificial intelligence research related to it.
• Database Technologies and Software Engineering Research Group studies the emerging technologies of P2P clustering
and dynamic requirement engineering refinement. It collaborates with the Lancaster computing research lab (InfoLab21)
and produces publications and deployable computer systems.
As such, our faculty has produced many internationally recognised publications.
