Research Highlights

Bus Tracking System

The Sunway School of Computer Technology, under an internal research grant, is developing a public display system to monitor the locations of the Sunway shuttle bus service in and around the Bandar Sunway area. The system uses GPS devices on each bus to relay coordinates over broadband back to a centralised service that will display the bus locations on a display in the Sunway Residence. This system allows students to interactively query the location, arrival time, distance and other information using a variety of methods including SMS and Bluetooth.

I was able to gain valuable working experience and learn how a large scale project was carried out and how to deal with clients.

Working in an SAS client office is a good learning environment. A good involvement for me as I got to work with experienced bankers in the field.

An eye opener to explore the real working environment. As a consultant intern, I was given the chance to join in formal meetings and I learnt how to use SAS software.

About the programme

This is a research-focused postgraduate degree by Sunway School of Computer Technology in collaboration with Lancaster University, specially designed for those who wish to progress further in the field of Computer Science. Students may opt to pursue this Programme either on a full- time or part-time basis, allowing the flexibility of combining work and study.

The Modules

The MSc in Computer Science (by research) consists of two taught modules and one thesis. Students will be required to complete two taught modules, namely Research Methodology and Directed Studies, before they proceed to writing the thesis. By undergoing these two modules, students are expected to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to conduct research successfully towards their Master’s degree.

The modules are:

• Research Methodology

Students will have an opportunity to examine research designs with methodology as well as basic data analysis techniques employed by researchers. At the end of this module, students will be expected to formulate and submit a proposal for research in an area of their own interest or specialisation.

• Directed Readings

This module will introduce students to key research papers in their chosen area and will help them identify a research question as the basis of their own thesis. Each paper will be read and discussed between student and supervisor as part of a tutorial exercise.

• Thesis

The thesis topic may be chosen from any related areas in Computer Science and must be decided in consultation with an assigned supervisor. The thesis demonstrates that the student has mastered a research area, identified a research problem, and developed a research solution which makes a contribution to the area. This thesis will communicate this knowledge in the form of a written report of sufficient publication quality, to enable where possible publication in an international workshop or conference.

Areas of Research

Subject to the expertise within the School of Computer Technology, the areas of research include, but are not limited to the following:

• Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing

• Networking

• Mobile Computing

• Database Systems

• Software Engineering

• Graphics & Multimedia

• Open-Source Technologies

• Intelligent Systems

Preliminary discussions are usually made between the prospective student and the potential supervisor to ascertain the suitable area of research before registering for this programme.

Employability

Graduates from all our postgraduate programmes will find themselves well equipped for a career either in industry or academia. Our courses are highly respected for their content and quality. The experience gained from completing the Masters programme would be a great asset for those seeking a challenging career in the areas of ICT and computer science.
