In this paper, we discuss a case-study of personal sharing of information among students of two undergraduate programme, i.e., Computational Mathematics and Software Engineering (in short, CM and SE respectively) at UniversitiMalaysia Terengganu, Malaysia. The data collected is represented as a directed graph with edges between vertices representing information sharing between the focused-group of students. An analysis is carried out to identify reciprocity,binfluential individuals and

Even though the density of CM and SE students' network are somewhat similar, but higher number of reciprocities and communities exists in CM network which indicates resource sharing can be limited in a particularnetwork. However, two isolated vertices also exist for CM which indicates these students prefer to work alone thus in need of extra attention. It is expected that with the community information derived, we can use it to sustain the dynamics of the network and further boost teaching and learning using various divide-andconquer strategies.
