B.Sc. in Information Technology

> Course Overview



The B.Sc. in Information Technology program prepares students to meet the information and communication technology needs of government, business, healthcare, universities, and other kinds of organizations. Information Technology (IT) 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.

IT graduates assume the responsibility of the development and selection of the appropriate computer hardware and software products and systems for an organization; and the installation, customization, implementation, management, and maintenance of such products and systems for the organization’s computer users. 

The International Open University joins worldly IT knowledge and Islamic knowledge in this exciting program. Hence, we’ve created a unique opportunity for students to fulfill their religious duty of seeking and sharing knowledge while securing worldly benefits. In today’s society, computers and information technology touches almost every aspect of modern life. Thus, learning IT is a magnificent way, that a person can contribute to his/her society.

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

The B.Sc. in Information Technology program features carefully designed courses that are based on web systems and technologies, multimedia systems and designs, computer communication and networks, systems and network administration, network security, software engineering, databases, data warehousing, system integration and architecture, information systems, and human computer interaction.
