Professor Min Chen

  “I was told that the University was the first in Malaysia to introduce computing as an educational programme. I also learned that the Faculty covers two major academic disciplines, namely Mathematics and Computer Science. This is now rare in Malaysia, as well as in most developed countries around the world. I was genuinely excited, not by the discovery of an old fashioned institute (or a dinosaur) but by the discovery of a potential powerhouse (or a sleeping giant) that is most suitable for tackling the big data problem. The most important technologies for tackling the big data problem are data dan computational infrastructure such as data warehousing and cloud computing; mathematical methods such as probability and statistics; computing techniques such as data mining, machine learning, visualization, multimedia and internet-based communication, interaction and collaboration, and software engineering; and application-oriented techniques such as decision theory, operational research, social media analysis, and bioinformatics. Hardly any department around world would have all these multi-diciplinary capabilites. However, the Faculty of Computer and Mathematical Sciences in the UiTM has amassed most of these capabilites. It is perhaps a unique setting in Malaysia and rare in the world. The Faculty is thus a highly valuable asset of the UiTM in this era of data deluge. It would be an unforgivable oversight for not investing in and capitalizing from such an asset.”
