Associate of Science in Information Technology (AIT)

> Program Overview


The Associate of Science in Information Technology (AIT) is the stepping-stone to the exciting word of computers where the possibilities are limited to one’s own imagination. Information Technology (I.T.) is the application of computers and telecommunication systems to produce, manipulate, store, organize, retrieve, and transmit data. It involves development, installation, implementation, management, and maintenance of computer hardware and software within companies, universities, and other organizations.

The International Open University (IOU) joins worldly I.T. knowledge and Islamic knowledge in this amazing program. Hence, we’ve created a unique opportunity for students to fulfill their religious duty of seeking and sharing knowledge while securing worldly benefits. The knowledge of I.T. enables students to develop software programs and applications for the benefit of the society.

“The best of people are those who are most beneficial to people.” (Al-Mu’jam Al-Awsat, 5787)

The Associate of Science in Information Technology program can later be applied to a 4-year Bachelor degree in the same field.
