Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics



Understanding complex phenomena in real world problems requires knowledge and skills at an advanced level. Modelling the complex dynamical system and dealing with unpredictable processes must be based on the combination of pure and applied mathematics. To certain extent, some problems may need solution with the aid of Machine Learning in parallel with industrial revolution nowadays. This programme has been designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills that you really need for your career. Our experts are waiting to serve you!

Nonlinear Differential Equations (4 credits)

This course discusses nonlinear ordinary differential equations from an analytical point of view and involves significant use of a number of concepts, including equilibrium points, orbits, phase portraits and limit cycles. Several methods such as linearization are discussed to determine existence and stability of equilibrium points and analyze nonlinear differential equations such as. An introduction to chaos theory is also presented. The techniques will be applied to nonlinear differential equations from physics, engineering, biology, ecology.

Numerical Solution in Mathematical Modelling (4 credits)

The numerical method is an important tool to solve problems in various fields. In this course, students will be exposed to a number of numerical methods appropriately. They also will be guided to develop and to improve the numerical methods based on the given problems. This course is embedded with programming element thus the developed solution can be implemented by using a computer. Throughout this course, the students are expected to perform numerical computation in a few projects in order to get real experience in solving mathematical modeling

Selected Issues in Mathematical Modelling (4 credits)

In this course, students are applied with knowledge of the process that need to be taken for mathematical modeling of the various considered issues. In addition, students are exposure to methodology and mathematical skills in modeling. The topics include the problems in industrial and physical sciences especially in the field of maritime and maritime decision-making. The discussion of the modeling approach based on analitical or numerical solutions and the suitability of the model from research papers will be highlighted. Also, Students will use their knowledge and skills to simulate or visualize the results. The detailed syllabus could be changed from year to year with the different talk of research from lecturers and visitors (if applicable).

Machine Learning (4 credits)

Machine learning is concerned with the question on how to make computers learn from experience. The ability to learn is not only central to most aspects of intelligent behaviour, but machine learning techniques have become key components of many software systems. This course covers both well-established and advanced machine learning techniques such as Neural Network, Support Vector Machines etc.

Research Methodology (3 credits)

This course discusses the general methods used in conducting research. The style and method of writing a research proposal paper is also discussed. In addition, issues related to the attitude and value of professionalism as researchers and ethics in writing and publishing are also being highlighted in this course.

Postgraduate Colloquium Project (3 credits)

This course aims to provide a space for students to demonstrate social skills, teamwork and responsibility in organizing postgraduate colloqium ethically, morally and professionally. In addition, effective oral communication is also emphasized through the individual presentation of the organized colloquium.

The course provides all aspects of knowledge related to dynamic web development. Throughout this course, students will spend most of the time focusing on server-side components. Students will learn J2EE technologies such as Java Server Page (JSP), JavaBeans, Servlets and Java Database Connectivity (JDBC). They will also learn Model-View-Controller (MVC) design pattern using Java Servlet and will communicate with database for any kind of data transactions.  Students will develop an interactive web based application on the topic of their choice for the final project. 

This course strengthens the students’ knowledge in programming by the group application development. Students are divided into small groups to develop certain applications. Focus is given to the knowledge transfer among students in the group through the application that will be built.

This course introduces the concept of modeling and simulation of dynamic systems. It includes the fundamentals of simulation, system dynamics, data collection and analysis methods, model building, model validation and verification, output analysis and subsequently comparing the performances of different system and its optimization.

Description the sectors in maritime industry. Understanding the theories, principles, techniques and tools of the basic management with emphasis on management functions for an organization of business and non-business related to the maritime industry. Emphasis will also be given to the management approach as a plan.

This course is designed to provide an understanding and exposure to the concepts of port and shipping management and administration, including port types, ship types, port operations, shipping operations, and port and shipping support services.

Environmental factors affecting the choice of technology. Specialization in cargo form, containment, types of handling, method of transport and efficient intermodal interface. Choice of ship and port technology. Contemporary issues in technology development.

This course introduces students to the basic concepts of information and communication technology  (ICT) in the maritime sector such as in the area of marine science, port and shipping management, logistics and security. Students are also exposed to ethics in digital security, intellectual property and professional ethics.

This course will expose students to the basic concepts of requirement engineering as well as analytical methods used in handling and obtaining the need for object-oriented software development.

This course introduces the concept, functions and responsibilities of a software management project and how to manage a software development project. The emphasis is on the production of quality product in time, meet the scope and within budget. It covers project scheduling and planning, cost estimation, risk management, human management, document production, quality management and software maintenance.
