International Higher Diploma in Software Engineering
International Higher Diploma in Software Engineering is designed to equip you with the necessary fundamental of software engineering and in-dept exposure to practical aspects of small to medium scale software development projects. You will be introduced to both Java and .Net platforms.
This diploma will give you
an understanding of the fundamentals of software engineering
practical skills in using different programming environment
skill in managing projects systematically
skill in managing, developing small to medium scale software projects
This module is designed to provide the advanced concept of programming to handle more complex programming projects. It will give you a deeper understanding of Object-Oriented programming and will introduce you with network programming and multi-layer architecture of enterprise applications.
This module introduces to students the fundamental engineering discipline which is concerned with all aspects of software production; developed programs and associated documentation or deliverables. This module is for students to work together with a formal group to build a software system using Object-Oriented analysis, design, implementation, and testing techniques.
This module introduces the concepts and design principles used in the construction of concurrent and distributed systems. It involves the development of the principles of the concurrent distributed system from simple shared-memory systems to multiprocessor and distributed environments.
Professional Ethics and Security
This module introduces concepts of the ethical use of the computer system. It provides a wider perspective when it comes to securing computers as well as that of the privacy of the users. This module also enhances a student’s ability to adapt to the various security operations and procedures applied by most industries and computer-based organizations.
Graphical User Interface Design
This module is designed to provide the students with a roadmap to the world of interface and interaction design. While students will be learning UI best practices and reusable ideas as design patterns, this module will provide solutions to common design problems that students can tailor to the situation at hand.
This module examines the design of operating systems and to show how it manages resources and provide services. With this module, the students should be able to understand the structure of processes and threads and how it is synchronized and scheduled. It also broadens the students understanding on the organization of memory and the basics of file system construction in modern operating systems.
IT Project Management
This module is designed to let students acquire the right project management skills needed to better manage future IT
projects. IT Project Management module covers basic concepts of IT Project Management, including initiating, planning, controlling, executing and closing projects. It allows the student to fully understand the foundation IT Project Management life cycle. This module also shows how IT projects should be managed, from inception to post-implementation review.
Higher diploma students are required to work on graduation project at the last semester. The students have to form a group of four to work on a project. There will be a supervisor assigned to the group by the school or the students may arrange for their own supervisor of their choice. The group, with the supervision of the supervisor, has to propose the project to the course coordinator. After approval form faculty, students will be assigned unique project group number and they can start to work out for the project.
