Domination of the computing landscape by mobile devices and a growing demand for expertise in mobile application development call for highly specialized and creative professionals to fulfill market needs. To prepare aspiring innovators for this fast moving sector, INTI International University is offering a new specialization in Mobile Application Development in its Bachelor of Computer Science (Hons) degree, which incorporates international exposure, innovative learning and individual development.

Mobile Application Development exposes students to the latest trends in mobile platforms as well as the latest tools available for mobile development.

“Research has shown that mobile phones have overtaken the use of personal computers as the most popular way to access the Internet. Looking at recent trends, more and more users are using their smartphones for browsing the web, checking email, using mobile applications, social networking, games, music and more. Our new offer of specialization in Mobile Application Development allows more students to be well trained and qualified to meet the need for mobile apps by individual consumers as well as enterprises,” says Associate Professor Goh Poh Kim of INTI International University.


Apart from Mobile Application Development, students of the Bachelor of Computer Science (Hons) degree can specialize in Digital Marketing, Network & Mobile Computing, Network Security and Software Engineering. They can choose their specialization from Year 2 of the programme. Strong emphasis is places on applied knowledge with 50 percent of the curriculum based on practical application. Employer projects as well as internship with organizations such as INTEL Technology, Sony, CSC Malaysia, Khind Holdings, Silverlake Sprints and others provide strong innovative learning and individual development opportunities.


The Bachelor of Computer Science degree is fully validated by the UK’s Coventry University and dual awards are conferred on graduates by Coventry University and INTI International University. Ranked among the Top 50 UK universities by the Guardian University Guide 2013, Coventry University was the winner of Times Higher Education’s 2011 awards for ‘Entrepreneurial University of the Year’ and ‘Outstanding Students Support’. Coventry University’s Computing and IT programmes are accredited by the British Computer Society.


“Mobile Application Development exposes students to the latest trends in mobile platforms such as iOS and Android as well as the latest tools available for mobile development. This specialization is designed to equip students with the fundamental theories and practical skills to develop mobile applications in various platforms. Immersion in real employer projects will make students’ transition to the actual workplace a smooth if not seamless one,” shares Associate Professor Jasmine Low from the Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics at INTI International University.


Over 80 organisations, including software houses and multi-national companies, have come on board to work with students on employer projects that help students develop problem solving, collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills as well as gain experience and readiness for global employability.
