Vision of the Department of Information Technology
The IT department will explore innovative instructional methodologies and technologies to prepare quality IT professionals. We will be a centre of excellence in providing innovative pedagogy to our undergraduate students in the Gulf region.
Mission of the Department of Information Technology
The mission of the Information Technology Department is to offer an opportunity for students to develop a career in Computer Science and Information Systems fields. Through a combination of courses and a final degree project, the programs ( IS & CS) are designed to prepare students to assume positions in both governmental and private sectors, computer industry, and education. The department also offers them opportunities to pursue a higher degree in both disciplines. Not only is the proposed programs anticipated reflecting positively on the careers of students, but it is also expected to turn Al Buraimi University College into a leading institution in addressing the demands of IT specialists in a developing country such as the Sultanate of Oman.
The choice of courses on offer by Al Buraimi University College is a subset of courses offered by California State University in Northridge USA. This choice draws from the degree courses in Computer Science and Information Systems.
