As Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become a fundamental pillar in the development of society, the department of Computer Science (CS) utilizes technology and innovation in its educational programs, research activities, and social responsibilities in order to achieve the vision and goals of the university.
Founded in 2005, the CS Department maintains high quality teaching and research in both Bachelor’s and Master’s programs.
The CS Department has distinguished staff members holding Ph.D. degrees from reputable universities. Our staff members conduct high quality research in different CS areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Computer Networks, Cyber Security, and Cloud Computing, etc.
On the education side, the CS Department offers two programs Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence on the undergraduate level, and Cyber Security and Cloud Computing on the graduate level in order 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.
Our ultimate goal is to have knowledgeable graduates who can compete for job opportunities and to maintain a positive impact locally and internationally.
