Message from the Dean

Thank you for considering graduate school program at the Labuan School of Informatics Science, Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS). The graduate pack will provide an overview of the campus, the degree programs offered here and the cost of graduate study.

Informatics occupies a special place in graduate education. Our libraries, computer laboratories, and faculty have made us a conducive environment for a dynamic graduate education. Informatics also has a long-standing commitment to provide graduate opportunities for a diverse population and disciplines. Our programs are enriched by the variety of cultural, economic, and educational backgrounds of our students, faculty, and staff.

Beyond the academic realm, Informatics at Labuan boasts a visually stunning campus and proximity to the calming and breathtaking South China Sea. Campus and city events include poetry reading, concerts, theater, lectures, and a wide range of outdoor and sporting activities.

Choosing to undertake graduate study  and then finding the right place to do so  are highly important decisions. I encourage you to learn as much as you can about Informatics at Labuan campus and the program that interests you. Visit the campus if possible; meet our students and talk with members of the faculty. If you are unable to visit us in person, be sure to contact a faculty member in your field of study who can discuss the variety of facilities and resources available at Informatics.

I hope you'll find that Informatics offers the breadth and vision in its graduate programs that you seek, and that you will consider becoming part of this dynamic academic community.




About Us

The Labuan School of Informatics was established in May 1999 to support students' learning in the field of information technology which is characterised as the "Soft Science" and oriented towards the business environment.

It is widely recognised that, to be economically competitive in the global economy, the country needs to achieve and maintain a rate of technological development at least equal to that of international competitors. The ability to manage new technology and to ensure high levels of product quality are the essential skills that are required if the country wishes to compete in the world markets.

Currently, advances in computers, interactive technologies and the Internet have enabled video, audio and text information to be processed and presented collectively as a single multimedia document. Over the next decade, the internet and the web promise many exciting developments. The internet is the fastest growing segment of the computer industry. E-commerce is another aspect of the web that is gaining tremendous interest. The Labuan School of Informatics has taken this challenge by offering two high demand courses; Multimedia Technology and E-Commerce.

Both programmes have been designed to enable students to put theoretical concepts in practice via the usage of Digital Media Technology through various technology facilities. Graduates of these courses will have acquired skills that will be of value to companies, large and small, who are exploiting the benefits of this growth area.

Besides that, Labuan School of Informatics was the first Malaysian Public University to introduce an e-commerce programme and the first University in Malaysia that concentrates only on soft-IT.
