December 21, 2012

Industry-specific curriculum incorporating SAP and SUSE Linux and exposure to employer projects, along with 16 weeks of internship and access to vast international resources for innovative learning, make INTI’s students highly prepared for the challenging world of Information Technology.


The Bachelor of Information Technology (Hons) programme at INTI International University (INTI IU) is offered in collaboration with Coventry University, one of the UK’s top 10 modern universities* and the second highest climbing university, rising 30 places to 53rd overall**. The options in specialization are Business Intelligence (BI) and Digital Multimedia. Students will learn to use the latest BI technology to design and implement information-driven business solutions in their coursework, or develop skills for multimedia roles such as animator, web designer, digital video effects specialist and others.

INTI’s Bachelor of Information Technology (Hons) programme is tailored to ensure students acquire the knowledge and knowhow to thrive in the challenging world of IT.

“INTI works with the best IT providers such as SUSE and SAP to give students access to leading-edge technologies, expertise and professional certification content,” said Associate Professor Jasmine Low, Deputy Dean of Engineering and IT at INTI IU. “Our dual award Bachelor of Information Technology (Hons) programme is fully validated by Coventry University, whose Computing and IT programmes are accredited by the British Computer Society.”


SUSE is the leading provider of Linux enterprise solutions. As an appointed Novell Academic Training Partner, INTI IU embeds the Novell Linux certification curriculum into its courses and students are able to sit for Novell Certified Linux certifications awarded by Novell, USA. Through INTI’s synergistic alliance with SAP, the world’s largest Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions provider, a special hosting service is available to INTI’s students to access SAP systems for hands-on learning under a free software license that will provide knowledge of integrated business processes and industry best practices.


The INTI curriculum emphasises on all-rounded development of a student’s cognitive and practical skills. Close collaboration with the industry ensures that the curriculum developed is relevant to the market’s needs, and more importantly, focuses on soft skills such as project management, team work, and proposals among others, which are essential skills when entering the work force.


Internationalism is an important pillar that holds up institutions of the Laureate International Universities network and the opportunity for members such as INTI to gain access to knowledge, thought processes, best practices, academic talent and resources across the distances makes this ‘Laureate advantage’ a unique one. Through Laureate’s support, INTI is able to provide its students with front-row seats to cutting edge global events such as the World Business Forum and Clinton Global Initiative, where they can learn from top global leaders discussing issues affecting the world today. They also have access to international faculty, overseas guest lecturers and study tours to INTI’s partner universities in other countries. This provides students access to an international learning experience beyond Malaysia as part of their studies and as part of their world class education at local prices.


Students of INTI benefit not only from the institution’s over 25 years of experience and strong track-record, but also gain from the global synergy and resources that Laureate International Universities provides. Laureate – the world’s largest private education network – has a presence in 29 countries, with more than 60 accredited universities and 130 campuses, serving more than 740,000 students globally.
