Computer Department

The Computer Science Department is one of the academic departments in (KCC). It has existed since the emergence of the College in 1423/1424 H. The Department provides its graduates with a diploma degree in two majors; the first one is programming and computer science, and the second one is networks and the Internet. Study is distributed across four semesters, during which the student will study a total of 26 courses – a total of 65 credit hours for the first programme, and 26 courses – a total of 65 credit hours for the second programme.

The instruction process will be both theoretical and experimental in order to provide the students with the required skills to deal with computer science and to be qualified for the labour market. Graduates will be able to build programs, design websites, design and manage database systems, execute network administration in addition to data entry and secretarial duties.

The Department aims to extend its capacity in the future by adding new academic majors that are related to computer science, and all necessary procedure for opening such new programmes will be tackled in due course.To this end, the Department continually assesses the changing needs of the labour market. The Department also aims to improve its cadre by allowing its faculty members to train and develop their know-how.
