Program Overview

The Bachelor in Information Systems degree program is offered by the Department of Information Systems since its establishment in the year 2002-2003, 1423\1424 H, in the premises of College of Computer Science. Since then, many learned people headed the department and participated in the improvement of the program.
The program is designed and formulated by understanding the priority of university mission, goals, and objectives.The program is widely-designed in the Computer Science domain and emphasizes on Information Systems' development.It covers the technological domain of business requirements; focuses the analytical needs of business in accordance to the real-time challenges.
The reviews of the program are conducted on periodic basis.On the basis of the conducted reviews, the curriculum has been reviewed, modified, and upgraded in line with the university curriculum guidelines and following the National Quality Framework (NQF) knowledge areas.
