Learning is achieved through the supervision process, practical work (including project) and independent learning.
An organization would normally be allowed to recruit trainees only if they have the capability to provide an appropriate work environment suitable for a trainee who is candidate for the Bachelor of Computer Science
Currently, there are around 180 organizations in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah, Sarawak, Singapore, and China that are capable and ready to recruit USM Computer Science trainees. The organizations cover all social –economic spectrums and include:
