As information and communication technology has become a fundamental pillar in the renaissance and development of the society, the faculty of computer and information technology (CIT) utilizes technology and innovation in its educational programs, research activities, and social responsibilities in order to achieve the vision and goals of the university.
The area of information technology has many essential components: hardware analysis and design, software development and design, information processing and management, data sciences, big data analysis, intelligent computer systems, internet of things, multimedia design and development, and many other theoretical foundations.
The faculty of CIT adopts modern programs, quality of teaching with constant improvement, good planning and organization. The faculty guarantees to satisfy the educational demands of students for up-to-date technical knowledge and skills. The success in competitions and employment of our graduates is a proof of the effectiveness of our programs. The faculty offers the following academic programs:
B.Sc. of Computer Engineering – a five-year program
B.Sc. of Computer Science – a four-year program
B.Sc. of Network Engineering and Security – a five-year program
B.Sc. of Computer Information Systems – a four-year program
B.Sc. of Software Engineering – a four-year program
M.Sc. of Computer Engineering
M.Sc. of Computer Science
M.Sc. of Network Engineering and Security
M.Sc. of Science in Data Science
M.Sc. of Health Informatics
We believe that the knowledge a student gains through formal education plays a major role in developing the student’s career and shaping his/her future. What the student learns through education, professional training and certificate programs sets his/her path for life. Hence, the faculty offers its students a great educational opportunity that combines both theory and practice. In CIT, we provide a healthy environment for innovation through well designed graduation project policies and procedures. The sustenance of student volunteering culture is also promoted through the Programming Innovation Lab (PIL) to allow students-teaching-students culture. In addition, active participation in national and international competitions (supported by international bodies, e.g., IEEE and ACM) are fostered in our faculty to expose the students to different activities and challenges at an early stage of their career building process.
As an essential goal of CIT, prompt employment of our graduate is achieved by continuous relation with the industry. Contacting our alumni in different locations improves the chances of our graduates to get training and job opportunities. Our relation with the industry is nourished by constant seminars, training sessions, and tutorials about what skills the current job market requires. Thus, a clear vision of our graduates is being built on what to do and how to prepare themselves to the job market before and after graduation.
The continuous improvement in the curricula, faculty continuous development, quality assurance of course assessment and overall published materials, faculty infrastructure, and internal regulation has opened more channels to the students. Such improvement has also been echoed into a higher QS ranking nationally and internationally, putting CIT in particular and JUST in general in its earned rank among high class faculties and universities.
