Science is a rich and diverse discipline. Areas of interest to computer
scientists range from theoretical studies to the practical development of
software for business and industry. Computer scientists' skills, especially in
problem-solving, have wide applicability in academic and industrial settings.
Thus, graduates of the computer science program are well prepared for advanced
studies and for professional work in different industries.
program is delivered full-time over four academic years (total of 134 credit
hours) and is designed to include four tracks: Programming, Computer Components
and Hardware, Networks and Security, and Modelling. It also focuses on the
development of soft skills.
Department of Computer Science was established in 1991, with the aims to:
seek to be a leading department of computer science locally, regionally, and
globally, capable of attracting the best competencies, graduating outstanding
students and innovators who are proficient in the theoretical aspect and have
practical skills to be ready to work and lead various fields of information
mission is to provide students with up-to-date educational programs, and to
equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to become leaders and
innovators in the field of Computer Science, and to produce graduates who will
be successful professionals, be engaged in lifelong learning, qualified for
scientific research to complete their postgraduate studies, and who will be
committed to serve their community.
education objectives of the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science are:
