Program Strategy

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
To provide high quality education and scientific research in computer science by upholding human values, offering constructive community services and employment opportunities
 
  • Create adequate educational environment that focuses on personal development and ambition as well as creativity, entrepreneurial spirit and a mutual commitment.
  • Develop innovative, interdisciplinary research groups working at the intersection of national challenges, faculty interest and industry needs.
  • Raise the profile and facilitate engaged service on local committees and increase contribution to positively influence in national and international technical and scientific committees.
  • Strengthening institutional affiliation and effectiveness by providing clear career progression models, advanced training opportunities, leadership development, and articulate the alignment of institutional and individual aspirations.
 
  • Impart to students the necessary skills, attitudes and knowledge that they will need to compete successfully in the global labor market
  • Create an academic environment in which students are actively involved in their own education process where learning and personal talent development take center stage
  • Increase productivity in research, creativity and innovation to enhance reputation and address the grand computing challenges and opportunities of the future
  • Reaching an advanced national and international level in existing and emerging areas of achievement.
  • Enhance engagement with organizations, communities, governments, and the private sector.
  • Increase faculty and students’ contributions to economic and social development and quality of life at the local state and international level
  • Maintain and enhance the quality assurance process by ensuring that the program meets the quality requirements recommended by National and International Accrediting Organizations.
  • Develop the academic environment so as to recruit, develop and retain qualified and competent faculty members in major computer science areas.
