Information technology is a dynamic discipline that concentrates on the use of computing and information technology in business, education, government, and other organizations. The scope of the discipline includes the development of systems based on computer and information technology and the application of those systems to improve enterprise operations.
Department of Information Technologies aims to educate the students to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of science and engineering so that they can develop solutions to Information Technology problems and enhance their skills on computer science, computer architecture, design and analysis of algorithms, software engineering, communication and research skills. It is aimed to especially emphasize teamwork, independent and innovative thinking and leadership qualities.
The Department of Information Technologies offers a unique opportunity for bright young minds to excel themselves in the areas of computer science, computer software, and computer hardware. Students begin with the introductory courses in procedural and object oriented programming and algorithm design that lay the foundations for the vital intermediate subjects such as data structures and algorithm analysis, operating systems, programming languages, data bases and computer networks, and the Internet. Students also take courses in math, science, and engineering in order to prepare themselves for the more challenging course work and projects ahead.
We believe that neither theory nor practice alone is enough in teaching IT. Therefore, courses based on a balance of theory and practice is set up so that students gain a thorough understanding of the subjects in the Department. In order to provide practical experience for our students, our department is equipped with four teaching laboratories, two computer networks laboratory and one wireless networks laboratory. Students use these labs extensively during their four years of study for their assignments, projects, research. In addition to the activities at university, university arranges short term and long term internships in some of well-known software companies.
Department of Information Technologies also offers excellent master programs for students who would like to deepen their knowledge in specific area. Current master programs are SECURITY and BIG DATA, INTERNET of THINGS (IoT), NETWORK SYSTEMS.
