The BS (IT) is a four-year professional degree program consisting of core courses in science, mathematics, programming, and computing, with specialization courses in Information & Knowledge Management, Networks & Communication, and Software Engineering. The specialization courses are offered in close collaboration with national and international software industry requirements so that the students are well prepared for changing trends and demands. Students have to complete 134 credit hours with a minimum CGPA of 2.0 to earn the degree. Modern technology is utilized to impart knowledge through lectures with the use of audiovisual aids as well as practical hands-on training in the labs and through case studies and projects.

Program Objectives

  • The Program will provide a broad understanding of the field via introducing concepts, theory, and techniques.
  • Intensive education/training in focused areas of Computer Science is desirable.
  • The Program may encourage students to develop and use abstract models in addition to apply respective technology in practical situations.
  • Computer Science graduates require special communication skills both orally and in writing. They must be able to produce well-organized reports, which clearly delineate objectives, methods of solution, results, and conclusions for a complex task.
  • The Program will provide formal foundations for higher learning.
  • The Program will be dynamic and flexible enough to maintain currency with the latest scientific and technological developments in the field.
  • The Program will provide professional orientation to prepare students for industry.
