Faculty of Computers and Information Technology
The Faculty of Computers and Information Technology is comprised of three departments: Computer Science, Information Technology and Information Systems. Within these departments, students study specific disciplines such as Database Design and Implementation, Software Development, System Analysis and Design, Software Engineering and Networking. FUE adapts to the rapidly changing technological world by continually developing and updating its educational programs. We realize that to be effective we must improve the awareness, understanding, development and successful utilization of information technologies and systems. The Faculty examines theoretical and experimental design components of computers and computation. Future University’s undergraduate degree provides the student with essential skills and theoretical grounding in computer technology. The student’s study includes the latest software technologies including java, web techniques, web programming and e-commerce. Our students benefit from an outstanding academic staff and an exceptional infrastructure.
Our vision at FCIT is to be recognized nationally and internationally for delivering outstanding computer science education and conducting research of high distinction both of value and relevance to the communities we serve. The faculty program is committed to continually improve its educational environment in order to develop graduates with strong academic and technical backgrounds needed to achieve distinction in the discipline. The type of excellence is expressed whether the graduate pursues positions in the workforce, advanced studies or through continual lifelong learning.
The FCIT mission is to maintain a program of excellence in teaching, research, and service. Students are given the opportunity to obtain a well-founded understanding of the principles and theories of the science of computing. In addition, the curriculum presents a University Studies program that gives students the social, ethical, and liberal education needed to be positive contributors to society as a whole. Students receiving a bachelor's degree in one of the computer science majors, are ready to enter the work force as productive computer scientists or to continue their education at the graduate level. Their foundation in computer science is such that they can be life-long learners in their chosen field. Students receive both quality and technically current instruction, and leading-edge research opportunities. In addition to responsibilities for program excellence and professional development, faculty members are committed to service through continuing education programs and research that contributes to their field. At the faculty level, students, faculty, and the program itself are frequently assessed to assure that this mission is being fulfilled.
We will attain our vision and mission with the following goals:
Providing a strong foundation in basic sciences;
Providing the knowledge and skills essential for career and personal success;
Integrating teaching, research and service in ways that enhance the learning experience;
Providing a dynamic environment where innovation, openness, and creativity are fostered;
Using advanced technologies to meet changing educational needs and establish links with the global community.
The Faculty of Computers and Information Technology strives to:
Introduce students to a wide variety of computer science topics with in depth concentration in one or more selected areas.
Prepare students to communicate successfully, think critically and work both independently and in teams.
Motivate students to pursue graduate studies and pursue life-long learning.
FUE Educational Philosophy
All Faculties, including the Faculty of Computers and Information Technology, embrace the University’s mission to “promote an atmosphere that values intellectual curiosity, the pursuit of knowledge and academic freedom and integrity.” To achieve this mission, certain pillars of an FUE education are embedded in the curriculum of all Faculties. These competencies or “pillars of an FUE education” include the following:
Critical Thinking: objective analysis and evaluation of information and concepts from multiple perspectives.
Knowledge Integration: application and synthesis of information and concepts from diverse disciplines.
Effective Communication: strong facility in oral and written communication; use of visual resources and technology for communication.
Social Responsibility: respectful and civil treatment of others; active participation in civil and democratic institutions; protection of the environment, and intelligent use of natural resources.
Together with information literacy, the pillars prepare our graduates to be productive members of society who value lifelong learning.
The Faculty of Computers and Information Technology offers three degrees:
To receive a Bachelor’s Degree, students must complete a four year program in which they complete 134 credit hours which combine University requirements, Faculty requirements and Faculty electives.
