I chose this program because it is related to my previous major and also because of its job potential opportunities available. What attracted me to study this program at UTM AIS because the courses offered in this program is actually what I was looking for. Besides, UTM AIS also concerns about student’s goals.

Be patient when doing your research, you will reach your goal eventually.
