Mobile Computing Program

Head of Department Message

The program of mobile computing is considered as one of the programs of the Faculty of computer science and informatics in Amman Arab University. It is one of the latest adopted modern trends in information technology.  The program of mobile computing depends on the rapid development of the mobile phone and cloud computing. The program is the first of its kind at the level of the kingdom, and the Arab world; since that the development of the program appeared as a result of the process of the outlook for the briefing in response to the scientific, academic and professional needs, bridging the need for local and regional growing list.

The program of mobile computing is considered to be one of the programs that would be based on changing the pattern of the electronic market companies and institutions.; that has been developed for its uniqueness and lack of specialization in meeting the needs of the local, technological and regional market,  through which the preparation and rehabilitation of distinct graduates with the ability to compete locally and regionally in the development of the applications of integrated  and efficient services will be accomplished. 

The program of mobile computing enables students to acquire theoretical knowledge, practical practice and deal with the tools, methodologies and technology of building, developing and managing the mobile computing projects through learning the basics of computing and communications networks focusing on mobile devices and mobile operating special systems; devices such as Personal Digital Assistant smart phones. The student learns in this specialty the skills necessary to configure and design the special programs of the devices and mobile networks.Top of Form The student will be able to develop new, useful and enjoyable applications stay of various types of mobile computing especially smart phones, which could be developed. This specialty contributes in meeting the qualitative and increasing need of the labor market in the area of mobile applications developers in mobile telecoms sector, telecommunications companies, and information and communications technology.

Graduates of the program of mobile computing (Mobile Computing) can work locally and internationally in several areas, the most important of which are:

  1. Build, develop, manage and protect systems of present and future generations of mobile phone.
  2. Analyze, design and implement various applications on the internet using the mobile.
  3. Build, develop and protect distributed and cloud systems.
  4. Manage the Software projects and contribute in the further development.
  5. Design, develop and build the information systems and manage the various databases.

In the light of the foregoing, the program of the Bachelor Degree in mobile computing is an urgent national need to support the national and regional labor market and stand on the latest developments in the information and communications technology in the field of wireless, smart and mobile networks and their applications.
