Dean’s Message

Prof Dr Azmuddin Ibrahim

Welcome to the Faculty of Communication, Visual Arts and Computing!

Advancement of technology saw the merging of different mediums in conveying or sharing information. The combination of communication, design and information technology is a necessity in order to be able to reach out to the audience. We have come to an era whereby mainstream media has changed its sources of information and gearing towards the Internet and social media. Therefore, the merging of the three faculties comes at a right time.

This is a world where everyone should be multi-skilled. Someone who is trained as a media specialist needs to have knowledge on design and IT. Similarly, a good designer needs to communicate his/her arts to the audience and the best way to use it is via IT.

And so is IT. It should not be restricted to producing programmes or build systems but IT professionals must be able to analyse data. How effective data can be analysed depends on the communication skills. IT with communication skills will enable IT professionals to write and build specific programmes to analyse data. Therefore, IT graduates who have the added edge of communication and design skills will stand up above the rest of IT graduates and be more competitive. Infographic is a good example of how data can be shared to the public through a good play of design by using computer programmes.

We hope and aspire the three departments within this faculty will be able to produce graduates competent to meet the current demand in industry, especially with the fast changing and greater growth of IT in society.

Take your time browsing through this website. Look through the comprehensive and up-to-date programmes we offer. We are unique not just by the low programme fees compared to other private universities in the country, but we also offer top notch facilities such as a broadcasting studio to enhance students’ experience at the faculty.

We are committed to produce students who are not just brilliant academically, but also smart in technical skills needed by the industry. Therefore, another uniqueness we have is that we offer services that are run by students voluntarily. We encourage them to delve into corporate communication by volunteering with Image East or get into the thick of journalism by running the student newspaper The Voice themselves.

Last but not least, we have this website to hear from you. So, ask us questions via the form on Contact Us, or come see us directly at either the Shah Alam or Bestari Jaya campus. I look forward to getting to know each of you personally, so please stop by or say hello!

Warmest regards,
Prof. Dr. Azmuddin Bin Ibrahim
