Tbh any IT related, better be MMU.
If you're on a budget, TARC.

UCSI tbh, the classroom kinda sucks. Don't recommend you guys coming here if you're expecting good classroom facilities. sweat.gif

Yes UCSI IT/CS dept is at the Library there. One/Two Floor shared between students.

Computers are not the most newest, at might 6th-8th Gen i3/i5 with 8GB RAM if lucky.
If not, you suffer don't know some PC from 2010-14, Sandy Bridge era.

UCSI will eventually raise their Resource Fees sooners or later.
They raised our Engineering Lab fees to RM1k / year.
With those old 17" LCD Monitors still can seen in this campus...

I'm not from the faculty of CS/IT. But I personally felt that this isn't worth wild facilities for your 2-4 years, being here since 2017 to 2021.

My reply for Data Science would be the same for CS.

Among the good universities are (in no order)

- TARUC
- Sunway
- UOW Malaysia
- Monash
- MMU
- APU

Each with their own strengths and weaknesses. The most well-rounded would actually be Sunway.

UCSI is not even in my list of good universities for CS/SE anymore.

Hi, you may hear it is expensive because it was increased several years back. The amount remained the same for over 10 years, so that's why the jump was considered to be high. However, you should do a comparison of the resources fee among the IPTS to decide yourself whether it is low or high. Bear in mind, MMU has a full fledged campus compared to some other IPTS.

I have explained in many postings about what QS ranking is and how easy it is to beat the system.

Peer review. And not the type of peer review we are familiar with in journals.
