Department of Information Systems and Technologies offers a four-year B.S. degree in information technology (IT) and information systems (IS) with a curriculum concentrated in software development and designed to meet the popular and expanding IT industry requirements. A semester-long industrial training opportunity - in their 3rd year -enables our students to practically apply their background on topics like database, data communications and networking, Internet and web applications, software engineering, programming and even get solid job offers from contemporary software companies.

There are various technical elective courses - most being supported by our academic alliances formed with global IT leaders - enabling senior students to specialize in parallel to their interests.

Technical courses are complemented by a range of business studies. These include both management and social/communication courses. Our aim is to graduate students who are technically both competent and confident, who are innovative, adaptable, and who have sound teamwork and interpersonal communication skills.
