Chairman's Message

Chairman's Message On behalf of faculty members, staff, and me, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Department of Software Engineering (SWE), College of Computer and Information Sciences.   The Software Engineering Department is one of the most modern departments, as it is the latest department of the College of Computer and Information Sciences (CCIS). This department was established with the aim of contributing to the achievement of national strategic goals by graduating generations capable of producing and exporting technology, as well as the ability to respond to the rapid changes in the techniques and tools of software analysis, design, construction, and maintenance.   The discipline of software engineering concerns the application of systematic and disciplined methods of design, development, and maintenance of software. A software engineering specialist must have a solid knowledge base in different theoretical aspects such as mathematics, algorithms analysis, and statistics.   The department's curriculum focus on different software development methodologies, techniques in developing and maintaining software, methods in developing and managing requirements, techniques and methods in software design and architecture. In addition, the curriculum focuses on software verification and validation at various levels and stages of the system development life cycle. Furthermore, an emphasis is placed on methodologies, methods, techniques, and tools for managing software projects.   Our internationally recognized faculty members are diverse and participate in research, teaching, community services and interdisciplinary initiatives in local, national and international communities.   The software engineering department is committed to staying in line with the theoretical and practical aspects of the software industry in order to produce highly qualified software engineers to serve the labor market in Suadi Arabia. In order to meet our scientific commitments and professional development, the SWE Department has taken a number of non-academic initiatives to enlighten CCIS students about the latest hot topics in software requirements, cloud computing, computer service architecture, human and computer interaction, command, and control systems.   Currently, the Department offers a number of scientific programs including: Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering Master of Science in Software Engineering (Thesis Path) Master of Science in Software Engineering (Project Path) Ph.D. in Software Engineering (Thesis with some Courses Option)   In conclusion, I am pleased to invite you all to learn more about the world of the software industry by browsing the pages of the department. Please accept my very best wishes, and regards.   Dr. Mubarak Al Rashoud Head of Software Engineering Department
