Dean's Welcome Message

Ts Dr Liew Soung Yue

Welcome to the Faculty of Information and Communication Technology (FICT) at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR).

Information and Communication Technology, or better known as ICT, has become part of our life. From computers, phones, smart devices, to the directories of shopping malls; from work, study, entertainment, to social networking, ICT is just everywhere servicing everyone of us every day. The ICT systems, applications and services are designed, created and supported by specialists who are entitled Computer Scientists, System Designers, Software Developers, Network Analysts, Computer Engineers, etc. They are real creators enabling the physical and digital worlds to be connected for the ultimate benefit of human being as a whole.

Being one of the pioneer faculties at UTAR, FICT was established in August 2012. Since then we have strived to provide our students with high quality education in order to equip them with advanced skills and knowledge to practice as innovative ICT professionals. We adopt student-centred learning approaches, highlight hands-on experience, and encourage life-long learning. In addition, we are also committed to research and development for discovering new knowledge and developing creative solutions, with one of the aims being to build the nation's strength.

Currently the Faculty offers five undergraduate degree programmes, namely:

- Programmes by Research
