Welcome to the Faculty of Applied Sciences and Computing (FASC) of TAR University College!!

FASC is evolved from a well-established and reputable School known as the School of Arts and Science (SAS) of the renowned Tunku Abdul Rahman College (TARC) which has been upgraded to Tunku Abdul Rahman University College in May 2013.  The School (SAS) was established in February 1972 and was one of the pioneers who offer external Degree since 1979. The BS (Campbell University) Degree offered at TAR UC has gained its 3rd 10-year of accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS COC) in 2011. The Faculty has a track record of producing successful graduates in both academic and industry in a wide and diverse range of applied sciences and computing areas for more than 40 years. To date, the faculty has more than 150 faculty members and has graduated more than 37,000 graduates at various level of studies.

The Faculty of Applied Sciences and Computing (FASC) currently runs programmes at Diploma and Bachelor (Honours) Degree levels and endeavors to offer Masters and PhD programmes in the near future. The Faculty continues the academic collaboration arrangement with the Campbell University, USA to offer external Degree to the students. In this academic arrangement, the programme structures and syllabi of FASC programmes are so designed and arranged that students will be simultaneously prepared for the programme in FASC in conjunction with the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree of Campbell University , Buies Creek, North Carolina, USA.

Apart from running academic programmes, the faculty is active in research activities and provides sample testing using high-end scientific and industrial-standard instrumentation. The faculty has close relationship with industry, and was award as “Industry Center of Excellent (iCOE) in ICT cluster” in 2013 by MOHE, one of “The Most Engaged IHL Industry Academia Collaboration 2012” byMDeC, “IBM Center of Excellence 2011 for software” by IBM, and “the best Cisco Networking Academy 2011 and 2012”.

Campbell University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS COC) to award Associate, Bachelor's, Master's, Education Specialist, and Doctorate degrees. This accreditation extends to all of the University's program sites, including its Bachelor of Science degree at Tunku Abdul Rahman University College in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
