How long does the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology was established in UPM?

The global evolution and significance of Computer studies and research was strategically harnessed in UPM’s program offerings in the 1980s. Among the pertinent strategies to achieve this was to offer the Diploma and Bachelor of Computer Science courses. The exponential demand and expansion of the courses needed a dedicated administrative and academic structure. Thus, by 1992, in keeping with the rapid pace of information technology, the Department of Computer Science was established. Further, courses were designed and offered to synergize the needs and demands of the multitudes of students exemplifying the domestic and international market demands. These encompassed postgraduate studies and supervision for students in pursue of the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy programmes. In 1995, there was further innovation in the deployment of providing Computer studies in UPM. Thus, is realizing the true essence of a borderless education, the Diploma and Bachelor of Computer Science was offered cooperatively between UPM and private educational institutions. This indeed realized the widening of UPM’s Computer studies spectrum. In October 1998, the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology was officially established to meet the demands for additional academic programmes and to keep pace with rapid developments in the respective field. The setting up of the Faculty also parallels the goal of the university to stay abreast of developments in Information Technology. Currently, the faculty constitutes of four departments: Department of Multimedia, Department of Computer Science, Department of Software Engineering and Information Systems and the Department of Communication Technology and Networks.
