Thank you for visiting the website of the College of Computing and Informatics at the University of Sharjah (UoS).
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to our vibrant College of Computing and Informatics.
The College was established in 2019 to fulfill the vision of his highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council, Ruler of Sharjah, and President of the University of Sharjah to offer distinctive and multidisciplinary-interdisciplinary programs with world-class curriculums to serve other Colleges at UoS, the Community and the UAE national agenda focusing on artificial intelligence, cyber security, smart sustainable cities, digital health and the other ICT strategies developed by the government.
The College comprises three Departments: Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Information Systems. While each has a distinct identity, together they present a unique, compelling and important critical understanding on the future role of technology in modern life.
We currently offer a range of unique, distinctive and modern programs in the areas of computer engineering (BSc, Master, PhD in Computer Engineering), Computer science (BSc, MSc in Computer Science, BSc in IT-Multimedia) and BSc in Business Information Systems. These programs are accredited by the ministry of education and the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, ABET, and they are preparing and equipping our students with the latest skill set required for the job market teaching them advanced programming languages, platforms with practical work using state of art facilities in the areas of artificial intelligence, robotics, cyber security and data analytics.
At the time of writing this message, the College has proposed in collaboration with other Colleges in the University six distinctive programs being already considered for approval by the ministry of education including four master of science degrees in Artificial Intelligence, Cyber security engineering, Business analytics, Data science, and two Bachelor of science degrees in cyber security engineering and biomedical informatics.
The College is driven by passionate heartfelt, outstanding and dedicated faculty and staff members, attracting promising and resilient students. We are committed to building within UoS an outstanding Computing and Informatics College, set to support the other Colleges within the University through the development of multi-interdisciplinary programs and equip our students with the right competencies and needed skills of innovation and entrepreneurship to produce highly qualified graduates empowered with the knowledge, skills and personalities that will enable them to transform the future of ICT in UAE and serve our beloved Emirati community.
Our strategy aims include broadening and enhancing our interdisciplinary research and education through the development of new programs in collaboration with UoS Colleges, members of the advisory board and our stakeholders;
Building greater research impact in the wider community and enhance both our funded research and enterprise activity through integrating research informed teaching across the three departments and faculties within the University; integrating our students in the future Sharjah Oasis for Technology and Innovation (SOTI) to empower them with the needed innovation and research skills to make them ready for the job market.
