Entry Requirements: 
IELTS 5.0
 
i. Pass Matriculation or Foundation studies or its equivalent with minimum CGPA 2.00 and credit in the following subject at O level or its equivalent;
OR
ii. Pass Senior High School with minimum Grade C (CGPA of 2.0) in any 2 subjects and credit in the following subject at O level or its equivalent;
OR
iii. A Level or its equivalent with a minimum Grade E in any 2 subjects and credit in the following subject at O level or its equivalent;
 
a) Additional Mathematic;
OR
b) Mathematic and any one subject in Science, Technology or Engineering
 
Note:
Candidate in category i (b) need to top-up with a Mathematic subject relevant to Computer Science and Software Engineering at the beginning level of their studies.
Student must pass the Mathematic subject as a pre-requisite before being allowed to attend the relevant core subjects. However, this provision does not prevent students from taking other subjects that does not require Mathematic as pre-requisite.
 
Credit for the Mathematic subject is an additional credit to the core subjects and may be considered for credit for graduation.
The need for the top-up Mathematic subject can be exempted if the Matriculation programme / Foundation studies or its equivalent offers Mathematic subject and their level is equal to or greater than the credit requirement of Additional mathematic subject at O level
 
OR
 
iv. Pass Senior High School (Science Stream) or its equivalent, with minimum Grade C (CGPA 2.0) in one Mathematic subject and one Science / ICT subject;
 
OR
 
v. Diploma in Computer Science OR Software Engineering OR Information Technology OR Information Systems or its equivalent with a minimum CGPA of 2.50;
 
OR
 
vi. Any other Diploma in Science and technology with a minimum CGPA of 2.50;
 
NOTE:
Candidates in Category v and vi with CGPA below 2.50 but more than 2.00 may be admitted, subject to a rigorous internal assessment process.
