About the Department
The Department of Computer Science at GJU is a part of the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology School (SEEIT). It offers a bachelor's degree in computer science, bachelor's degree in design and media informatics (joint program with the design and visual communications department in the SABE), and master's degree in enterprise systems engineering. The department includes faculty members specialized in various fields of state-of-the-art technologies such as web/mobile applications, cloud computing, internet of things (IoT), big data, game programming, cyber security, augmented/virtual reality, data science, algorithms, data structures, computer graphics, machine learning, decision support systems, and bioinformatics.
The department built strong partnership networks with the industry in Jordan, Germany, and elsewhere. This is to expand on the long experience of the German model of applied science and contribute to building a premier quality industry-oriented ICT education in Jordan. In that regard, the department exposes our students to a variety of experiences in the industry such as training at least 20 weeks in the German industry during the obligatory German Year, working in local companies the first three summer semesters when enrolled in the Dual Study track, offering courses in the study plan that qualify students for industrial certification, as well as conducting local field training and graduation projects in collaboration with the industry. All of these experiences combined can result in a graduate student with an effective work experience equivalent to 2 years.
Our vision is to enhance our reputation as a teaching and research institution on local, regional and global levels, by recognizing the importance of applied education, innovation, excellence, partnerships, and attracting best students and staff worldwide.
Our mission is to provide the market with students who possess both theoretical and applied knowledge, to train them to be successful, ethical, and effective problem-solvers and life-long learners, and finally, to research to advance the state of the art in computer science and integrate research results into other scientific disciplines.
