About the Department

The Information Technology department has been established in 2010/2011 .Since that, it plays an active role in advancing the intellectual frontiers of computer science, creating new computer technology, applying that to meet the needs of today’s technological society. IT Department consists of 10 members: all are Master holders with many years of experiences.

The Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) degree is a 4 year 128 credit hour program taught in English, designed to produce graduates who are competent in their major disciplines, as well as IT in general: graduates who are ready to be involved in the development of Omani industry. As the name “Colleges of Applied Sciences” suggests, our students are exposed to significant practical work and, where possible, linkages with Omani industry are being developed and exploited.

The department is offering three majors: software development, Information Technology security and Computer Networks.

Software development pushes the students understanding of abstract concepts through advanced data structures and the latest software innovations. Graduates of this major will be experienced in both procedural as well as object oriented languages, and a full year project is undertaken in conjunction with a course on software project management. Electives such as concurrent programming, computer graphics and artificial intelligence challenge the students further whilst adding an extra layer of interest and motivation.
IT security prepares students to understand and combat threats to security in a rapidly changing world. More than any other major, it is important to keep up with the market evolution and to keep abreast of concepts and implementation techniques

Computer networks offers grounding in current technology in use in Oman as well as the latest innovations across the world. Network technology, network management, internetworking, and wireless networking are all very relevant to the expansion of Oman today: combined with the concepts of network security make graduates of this major very useful to industry.
