DIT at a Glance

The Department of Information Technology offers Bachelor of Science in two undergraduate study programs in the field of computer science. The first is Computer Science (CS), which provides an in-depth experience focusing on the theory and practice of computer science. The second program is in Computer Information Systems (CIS), which provides a more interdisciplinary experience balancing study in computer science and business administration. The CIS program focuses on preparing students to meet business challenges through the use of technology. Both programs provide an excellent background in computer science but they differ in the approach they take to computer science.


DIT Aims and Objectives

Aims

The emergence of Computer Science as a discipline is one of the most significant intellectual developments of the twentieth century. The field encompasses a rapidly growing body of knowledge concerning algorithms, information processing, communication, languages, and information systems. It utilizes both theoretical as well as experimental approaches to advance the state of knowledge in these areas. The power of this paradigm is evident everywhere in our technological society. It has begun to dramatically change our concept of reality. Almost every aspect of everyday life has been transformed by information technologies advanced by Computer Science. There is a growing realization that information technology is essential for solving critical problems in areas such as fundamental science, engineering, education, environment, health care, economics, commerce, and government. The recent explosive growth in computer power and connectivity is reshaping relationships among people and organizations, and transforming the processes of discovery, learning, and communication. As a result of these technological advances, we have unprecedented opportunities for providing rapid and efficient access to enormous amounts of knowledge and information; for studying vastly more complex systems than was hitherto possible; and for advancing in fundamental ways our understanding of information processes in natural and artificial systems.

Objectives

The objectives of the DIT at Mu'tah University are to create a new breed of scientists, armed with the knowledge of computer science trained in computer science as well as the appropriate scientific and engineering disciplines. In addition, we provide students with the tools of information technology that were enabled by advances in Computer Science to transform business practices through the emergence of electronic marketplaces, electronic investing, electronic banking, sophisticated software tools for scheduling and workflow and inventory management. Our graduates will also enhance major functions of the government in areas such as national defense, disaster management, and law enforcement. Our society is on the threshold of an era of intelligent artifacts, which is being ushered in, to a large extent, by advances in Computer Science and information technology.

Mission

 

The DIT embraces its role in research and education in Computer Science. Excellent faculty and well-equipped laboratories, provide a stimulating academic environment that encourages innovative education in Computer Science.
Given the central role of computer science and information technologies enabled by it, there is a critical need for training of the next generation researchers and educators in this area. Our graduate curriculum seeks to address these needs.
With the increasing reliance of the Jordanian society on advanced information technologies, in almost every aspect of our lives, there is a critical national need for preparing the scientific and technological workforce of the twenty first century through education in Computer Science. Such education should equip the students not only with a sound knowledge of the foundations of computer science, but also the problem solving and system design skills necessary for designing and building robust, efficient, reliable, scalable, and flexible software systems. Our undergraduate curriculum seeks to address this need. The department has a strong undergraduate programs leading to a B. Sc. in Computer Science and Computer Information Systems.

Department Faculty and students contribute to the community at large in a number of ways including: technology transfer to industry, spread of knowledge and expertise to the general population, knowledge transfer to high school teachers, and consulting and advising activities for industrial, government, and non-profit organizations.

The DIT is central to Mu'tah University's and its educational mission. The constant flow of students and researchers armed with the concepts and techniques from Computer Science courses into virtually every discipline, department, and research center at Mu'tah University testifies to the department's central role in the education programs across the university.
DIT is playing a major role, with other Jordanian Universities, in providing the basic understanding and the fundamental operating of computer systems to all non-major students in the university. This participation, will not only provide the basic knowledge, but will also narrow the digital divide in Jordan as a whole.

Our undergraduate circular is always under constant review to reflect the new emerging technologies and the high demand of the Jordanian market.

 

Computing Resources

The computing laboratories at the Department of Information Technology are constantly updated to keep them in-line with current engineering practice. Assignments in the classroom and laboratory are arranged to complement each other. The Department provides a wide variety of computing facilities for student and faculty use. Thirteen computer laboratories belong to the department with more than 500 Pentium III personal computers running MS Windows 2000 and a Sun Workstation running Solaris. The labs are open 9 hours/day Sunday through Thursday, and are staffed by laboratory supervisors. Each laboratory forms an Ethernet LAN connected to the university ATM network. Internet access is available at all labs.
