If you don't have the chance to pay a visit last week for it, Fred not cause I’ll be showing you here what you can expect about the : Courses, facilities, job opportunities in future etc. when you enroll in Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus.

Firstly, here's a lil introduction about Taylor's University Lakeside Campus.

A total investment of RM450 million Taylor's Lakeside Campus in early 2007 is indeed an exciting phase in Taylor's 38-year-old history and underscores its continued commitment to self-development. It marks another milestone in Taylor's history where great strides have been made since 1969. Set on 27 acres of tropical greenery near Jalan PJS 7/5, the campus will be surrounded by a revived 5.5 acre man-made lake, as well as a landscape of water plants, trees and flowering shrubs and ground cover.

Pretty amazing ain't it? I'm sure it's everyone's dream place to study after SPM. lol. Apart from that, the Open Day was filled with lots of interesting activities, workshops, career talks, campus tour visitation and so on. Guess I've got a lot to elaborate about Taylor's Uni.

As promised, you'll see a student designed car built by Formula Varsity Race Champion Team from the School of Engineering! Not to mention that you can even test drive the car.

There's 2 cars on ground. One is the not so sophisticated car. But still not too bad for student's to build that thing.

Also, Science of Food Workshops by the Food Science students. Demonstration of how to make a candy/sweets yourself.

Apart from the activities which you seen earlier, here comes the serious part of what's the purpose being in Taylor’s University Open Day. In sight from Taylor's MPH, seeing a lot of parents brought their kids along to the Open Day for course inquiry/counseling session/future planning etc.

What course I have in mind is : School of Computing and IT. Heard the rumors that Taylor's have more than 100 Apple iMac. I've seen it with my own eyes. Believe it! And so, I've been given a brief idea why you and me should study here in Taylor's.

Programmes Offered for SOCIT (School of Computing and IT)
  1. Foundation in Computing
  2. Diploma in Information Technology
  3. Bachelor of Computer Science, RMIT, Australia
  4. bachelor of Information Technology, RMIT, Australia
Interested in Computers courses? Let me tell you why you should study at SOCIT in Taylor's
  • Strong Collaboration with renowned University like RMIT Uni, Australia. Offers the same syllabus as in RMIT Uni and taught to the same high standard.
  • Quality Assurance by RMIT Uni's academics who make regular visits to Taylor's Uni. This is to make sure that curriculum meets the demands and expectations of the industry.
  • Marketable graduates. Programmes focused applied learning, blending theory and practice with skills relevant to industry needs. Job guarantee ready for fresh graduates.
  • Competent Lectures. Lectures who are specialize in niche ares of computing such as Microsoft, Sun Java, Linux, Oracle, SAP, UML, and knowledge management, to name a few.
Not convinced enough? Perhaps this should at least convince you a lil.

Hmm maybe not. You need to visit Taylor's Uni counselors to inquire more information regarding on your desire academic studies courses. As for now, the fun part begins. Jom let's have a tour around the Uni.

First and foremost, the computer labs Taylor's had. Since if you're interested in studying SOCIT (School of Computing and IT). This is what you should see/know.

I've been always wanted to learn more about computing. Programme like 3D graphics and annimation, Real time rendering & 3D games, JAVA, HTML codes, Flash graphic studies, Web development, Digital media computing & Designing. ETC. I believe SOCIT (School of Computing and IT) would be providing all those and also a good choice if you are interested to further your studies in Computing and IT.
