The work of information technology professionals is essential for effective operations in today‘s knowledge-based society.

Mission 

The mission of the Department of Information Technology is to educate the students to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of science and engineering so that they can develop solutions to Information Technology problems and enhance their skills on computer science, computer architecture, design and analysis of algorithms, software engineering, communication and research skills. It is aimed to especially emphasize teamwork, independent and innovative thinking and leadership qualities.

 

Advantages at IT 

Computers and the Internet are having a great impact on human life and on society. Our lives, starting in the second half of the twentieth century, have become computerized “at the speed of light.” We now live in times referred to as the computer age, the information age, or the Internet age. The Computer Engineering Department offers a unique opportunity for bright young minds to excel themselves in the areas of computer science, computer software, and computer hardware. Students begin with the introductory courses in procedural and object oriented programming and algorithm design that lay the foundations for the vital intermediate subjects such as data structures and algorithm analysis, operating systems, programming languages, data bases and computer networks, and the Internet. Students also take courses in math, science, and engineering in order to prepare themselves for the more challenging course work and projects ahead.

The faculty members in the Department believe that neither theory nor practice alone is enough in teaching IT. Therefore, courses based on a balance of theory and practice is set up so that students gain a thorough understanding of the subjects in the Department. In order to provide practical experience for our students, our department is equipped with four teaching laboratories, two computer networks laboratory and one wireless networks laboratory. Students use these labs extensively during their four years of study for their assignments, projects, research, and for fun!
