Computer science is a very unique, young, exciting field that transformed the way we live and interact in less than 60 years. One can hardly imagine the world without computers, smartphones, and digital connectivity. It all started in 1962 at Purdue University where the first department of computer science established the first CS degree. In less than 10 years after that, enrollment in computer science programs increased dramatically all over the United States. The rest of the story is well known to all of us. Over few years, computer science attracted the best brains, started the “information revolution” that led to the “information age”, generated tons of knowledge and transformed the world into a small village through the convergence of data, voice, video and digital communication technologies.
Computer science is an interdisciplinary field that interacts with many other disciplines to generate new hybrid disciplines such “Bioinformatics”, “Computational Linguistics”, “Medical Informatics” ...etc.
Prince Sultan University offers well-designed, up to date Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Science, based on the latest international standards (ACM/IEEE) and best practices. College of Computer and Information Sciences maintains strong links and collaboration with some of the best schools in the world. It is not just the curriculum, but the excellent ecosystem and environment in which the degree programs are offered. In addition to the standard curriculum, we offer a special concentration in “Digital Media” which covers a number of technologies and related skills such as Media Authoring, Game Development, 3D Animation ...etc. In the radiance of success, we are currently enjoying the graduate program in Software Engineering. This program covers most topics in Computer Science in addition to a concentration in Software Engineering standards and practices.
