Founded in 1998, the Computer Science (CS) Department maintains high-quality teaching and research in both Bachelor’s and Master’s programs.
The CS Department has distinguished tenured and tenure-track faculty members holding Ph.D. degrees from top world universities. Our faculty members conduct high-quality research in different CS areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Computer Networks, Cyber Security, Multimedia, and Cloud Computing.
On the education side, the CS Department continuously updates its curricula to keep up with industry needs and technology changes. Several cutting-edge computer LABs were established to help students practice what they learn and conduct advanced research.
Every semester the CS Department offers courses that serve hundreds of students from different majors, the department offers two bachelor's programs: Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence.
The graduate of the B.Sc. in Computer Science will be able to pursue a wide range of jobs. The Computer Science careers are (but are not limited to):
- Data Scientist.
- Computer programmer.
- Application developer.
- Software Engineer.
- Network Engineer.
- Mobile application developer.
Artificial intelligence is a multidisciplinary field concerning developing an intelligent system to simulate human behavior and act like a human. It is considered one of the most exciting fields in the 20th century. It was a dream to make the machine as intelligent as humans and this field made the dream happen. It has applications in different fields such as business, economics, agriculture, and the environment. AI aims to develop intelligent systems and robots such that they can recognize voices, faces, images,s and respond to activities with the environment.
The graduate with a B.Sc. in Artificial intelligence will be able to pursue a wide range of jobs. The Artificial intelligence careers are (but are not limited to):
- Robot Engineer
- Machine Learning Engineer
- Data Analyst
- Computer vision Engineer
- Game Developer
- Data Engineer
Our ultimate goal is to have knowledgeable graduates who can compete for job opportunities and maintain a positive impact locally and internationally.
