Bachelor of Science (BS) in Computing and Information Technologies

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Networking, the technology of interconnecting computing devices so information can flow between them, includes the design, deployment, operation, and maintenance of computing networks using developed components. This includes activities as simple as topology design to those as complex as the configuration of services and protocols to enable an entire intranet and the support of that environment. As the number of computing devices in the network scales up, the task becomes more difficult, involving design trade-offs, performance considerations, and cost issues. 

Systems administration includes the system design, installation, configuration, operation, and support of computing system platforms from mobile devices, servers, and large-scale systems to the deployment of clouds and the use of virtualization. This includes the specification and implementation of all the hardware and software structures required to support and deploy these environments.

These disciplines are also concerned with the security and privacy of the information that is stored on these platforms and communicated over the networks they are attached to. In today’s information-rich environment, computing systems exist at the heart of a network and often work together to provide services as well as repositories for information. Students will take all of this into consideration as they design and deploy secure system and network solutions in support of an organization's strategic and tactical goals.

ACCREDITATION

The Bachelor of Science in Computing and Information Technologies is accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education- Higher Education Commission and is licensed by the KHDA.

CURRICULUM

The BS degree in Computing and Information Technologies is designed to teach students to be the designers, implementers, operators, and maintainers of computing networks and the computing systems attached to the network. Students will evaluate existing networks and computing systems, suggest improvements, monitor such systems for faults, and plan for growth. They will have the opportunity to work in small- to large-scale companies in any industry segment that interests them.

An important goal of the major is to provide students with a level of specialization beyond that provided by typical information systems or information technology programs. To accomplish this, the major focuses on networks of all types and the full range of computing system platforms that can attach to them. In this way the degree program favors depth over breadth. It is this approach that allows faculty to guide students in their in-depth exploration of conceptual knowledge, which is enhanced with required cooperative education experiences.

The curriculum includes required core courses such as a programming sequence, introductory courses in database and security, and fundamental courses in Computing and Information Technologies.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Cooperative education

Students complete two blocks of cooperative education. Students have found co-op positions in nearly every type of business that requires computer systems and/or networks. These vary from small- or medium-sized businesses to large international companies, from computing-centric organizations (network hardware manufacturers, software services providers) to users of information technology (manufacturing companies, school districts, and the entertainment industry).

Co-op gives students real-world experience and a definite advantage over other applicants when applying for jobs after graduation. Typically, co-ops occur during the summers following the second and third years. Students must complete their co-op requirement prior to completing their course work and preferably prior to their senior year.
