Software Engineering Department

Head of Department Message

Software has become an integral part of various fields in modern life. This has increased the levels of need for software production within a short period without decreasing its quality. In addition, specialized scientific methods should be used programmatically to deal with many security risks such as hacking software systems in order to access sensitive data that was described by specialists from the late 1960s as software crisis. Due to software crisis, a new specialization in computer sciences was developed and known now as software engineering that involves some methods and disciplines used in engineering specializations.


The university has opened a new bachelor program in software engineering at the faculty of Computer Science and Informatics in the academic year 2014-2015.

The software engineering program aims to build distinctive expertise in software development with high quality and efficiency and provide experienced professionals to lead the next generation and serve the academic and industrial fields.

About the Department

About the Bachelor of Software Engineering

Software Engineering aims to provide students with the theoretical and practical skills related to developing and designing software with the highest quality and lowest cost to meet users’ needs. These theoretical and practical skills can be achieved through specific methodologies that include problem analysis, design, and implementation. It also provides writing, testing, installation and maintenance phases. Software engineering helps students to achieve software project management skills, understanding of software architecture, and developing standard software specifications.

Vision and Mission of the Department
