Skills Development

This programme aims to graduate skilled computer scientists needed in the region to design and operate computer systems and to develop required software by variety of sectors. Database system development, web development, mobile applications, and software project management are the most important developed skills, in addition to computer networking and security issues. The graduates will be able to work in a highly technical environment especially in application developments on desktops and mobile devices.


The Departmental philosophy is to effect positive changes through excellent teaching and learning pedagogy. The assessment methods are designed both to reflect and support the above aims. Students are assessed via a wide range of methods (written exam, assignment, oral presentation, lab reports, and quizzes) in order to ensure the development of an extensive range of abilities and skills over the duration of the programme. Project realization, individual or group project activities, presentations, and time constraints are other ways of assessments to see the ability of students to integrate multiple skills and apply them practically.
