The Information Technology (IT) Department is one of the five departments of the College of Computer and Information Sciences and is a discipline recognized by the ACM. Although the department was first established in 1408 as a female only department; we are currently working on expanding our department to offer degrees to male students as well.
Information Technology is unique in its combination of multiple computing fields and as a result, the department is distinctive in the diversity of its faculty’s fields of research and education. Those fields include Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics, Cyber Security, Data Science, Human Computer Interaction, Networking, Robotics etc. This diversity can be clearly seen in the different graduation projects our students complete.
Currently, the department offers two degrees, bachelor’s in Information Technology and MSc in Information Technology. We regularly review our programs’ plans and work closely with our partners in the industry to update them according to the everchanging needs of the market. Presently, the department offers its BSc students the opportunity to specialize in one of three tracks:
- Data Science and Artificial Intelligence
- Cyber Security
- Networks and Internet of Things Engineering
Similar themes are also available to MSc students. I invite you to browse our website and view our programs’ plans and guides for further details.
