Technology is a real force of change that stands behind most of the rapid developments in all aspects of life. As a result, the demand for highly skilled graduates has increased. To meet these requirements, the Agency for Educational Affairs at the College of Computing and Information Technology (CCIT) at Shaqra University seeks to provide modern, effective and sophisticated curriculum similar to those offered by other major educational institutions around the world who are able to keep pace with the rapid development of information technology. Currently, the College offers a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Computer and Network Engineering, Information Technology, and Information Systems. The College's Educational Affairs Agency is also on the way to complete the requirements of local academic accreditation by the National Center for Assessment and Accreditation (NCAAA) and international academic accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Council (ABET). In order to improve the educational process and provide it in an organized manner and based on high-quality international standards the educationa affairs are trying hard to acquire such international level certificates. Thus, we can ensure that the college student shall be of immense importance. The College also strives to promote scientific research at the College, where we work to achieve leadership and excellence in both quantitative and qualitative terms, and to encourage joint research work and promote the exchange of scientific expertise and research among faculty members at the College.
In view of the university's tendency to encourage graduate studies and scientific research, the college is in the process of opening two master's programs in cybersecurity and assurance, and in data science and artificial intelligence, and shall be applying for the opening of a doctoral program.
