Information Systems Applied Engineering

What you will study

Information and Communication Technology students start an excellent journey to progress into careers in industry leading companies around the world. The Department of ICT has developed a new Applied Engineering Bachelor Degree program, accredited by ZevA, a German awarding body, and recognized by the Saudi Council of Engineers (SEC). Unique to this Applied Engineering College is that all subjects are delivered in English by a team of international experts. These factors create highly capable engineering professionals with both theoretical and active knowledge of ICT engineering, which gives our graduates the competitive edge in gaining employment in an exciting career.

The digitization of our daily life in all of its socioeconomic aspects is an undergoing process that demands skillful and highly trained professionals to support and enhance it. The emerge of the Internet and mobile communication technologies, robotics, bioinformatics, data analysis and process, are some among a lot of important technologies and sciences that are shaping our future. The Information Systems Engineering degree that is provided by our college is focusing exactly in this aim, to provide the local and international community with engineers capable of producing and maintaining highly sophisticated information systems that can facilitate any type of organization and need. Information systems engineers analyze, design, develop, test and maintain systems that collect, process, store and present data.

No prior knowledge on computer science is required however students need to know how to use and operate a computer; basic everyday computer skills are very welcome, such as Internet browsing, Email accounts handling, basic understanding of digital activities, since a lot of every day jobs and communications are done electronically. Much of the material given to the students is available only in electronic form, since the department is trying to minimize the usage of paper. Also, by distributing the material electronically, we make sure that our students will always have the updated version. In addition, a good level in physics and mathematics will boost their understanding and performance.

Program Outcomes

Our potential students should be eager to learn, believe in their potential, and have high will to create. Our department believes and focuses in practical and applied knowledge. Therefore we need students with high enthusiasm in “making their hands dirty” by creating the projects that will give them the key to success.

By finishing the program, the students will have a broad knowledge on aspects of software engineering, experience in writing code in modern languages like Java, PHP, SQL for mobile and desktop applications and complex projects. They will be able to design algorithms, use software engineering methodologies and standards, and analyze complex Information Systems. They will learn about embedded systems and Internet of Things devices and emerging technologies.

 

What AEC – ICT department offers to the ISE students?

Our degree is based on a multidisciplinary field that except computer science, incorporates also math, business, and English. During the first year our students learn all the required fundamental and introductory knowledge that will build the strong foundations in order to proceed in more specific and interesting topics. In the second year they develop thorough understanding and advanced knowledge, which is continued and concluded in the final year, where they acquire the skills and knowledge that will make them distinct and capable to create the IT systems of the future. Our lessons are only being taught in the English language, therefore preparing engineers capable to work, participate, and contribute in the global industry, economy, and market.

This magical trip in knowledge starts with such modules as fundamentals of computer technology, information systems and algorithmic thinking, data communications and networks, programming, electrical fundamentals, and academic competencies. Then, it passes through more programming, database systems, web design and development, operating systems and business into such modules as software engineering, software development for business, advanced software applications development, and information security. During this trip our students also study applied mathematics and physics, English language and Islamic studies.

The students have the chance to develop real applications for business, for the web and for mobile devices, experience electronics and microcontrollers, and develop full scale software engineering projects.
