Department of Computer Science

General:

The Computer Science curriculum is designed to provide the students with the technical knowledge and skills necessary to specify, evaluate, and manage computer system design; to provide technical guidance in applications ranging from data processing to tactical embedded systems; to perform analysis and design methodologies appropriate for hardware, software, and firmware; and provide practical experience in applying modern computer equipment and research techniques to solve daily problems. The curriculum also provides for concrete experience in computing practices — the skills and ways of thinking that mark a computing professional. These include programming, engineering of systems, modeling, and innovating.

The two dimensions —great principles and practices— define the space in which the core technologies of computing exist and serve application domains: Algorithms, architecture, artificial intelligence, database, networking, operating systems, security, and more.

Mission:

The mission of the Computer Science Program is to educate the students to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of computers so that they can develop solutions to IT problems and enhance their computing, communication, and research skills. It is aimed to especially emphasize teamwork, independent and innovative thinking and leadership qualities. In particular, the Computer Science Program aims to:

  • Train the students to have theoretical background in IT and to be equipped with necessary technical skills,
  • Develop students' competency soft skills like, communication, ethics, team work, responsibility.
  • Provide practical experience which will enable students to utilize and enhance their IT knowledge,
  • Promote students' self-discipline and self-assurance and the ability to learn on their own,
  • Encourage team work, collaboration and development of interpersonal skills,
  • Motivate the students towards contributing to the progress of science and technology,
  • Teach the importance of ethical behavior in social and professional life,
  • Produce graduates for the engineering and the business communities who are observant, inquisitive and open to new technologies for developing better solutions,
  • Produce graduates for the engineering and business communities with integrity, determination, judgment, motivation, ability and education to assume a leadership role to meet the demanding challenges of the society.

Program:

The first two years of the undergraduate program is dedicated to the study of basic sciences and mathematics which provide the student with IT and programming fundamentals. The study of materials which are basic to Computer Science begins in the second year. The third and fourth years involve the study and application of Computer Networks & Protocols, Computer Architecture, Database Management Systems, Programming Languages, Human-Computer Interaction, Multimedia Technologies, Foundations of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Neural Networks, Introduction to Computer Security, Information Security Management, Elements of User Interface Design, Compiler Design, Database Design, E-Commerce.

Job opportunities:

Graduates of the department qualify for a responsible position in the IT industry, public and private sectors. Prospective employers include, but are not limited to, database administrators, IT security management, computer gaming sector, and various government agencies.
