Aims and Objectives
Computer Programming Program aims to train computer operators and programmers who can address to the needs and requirements of the sector.

The program is based on a 2 years-training and the language of instruction is English. Thus, students are required to undertake the English Prepatory School program for one academic year in order to be proficient enough to follow the specialist program. The Computer Programming Program applies a composite program which covers computer information systems, programming languages, networking and database design programs predominantly with business, economics, statistics, Mathematics and English. Lectures are carried out in both theoretical and practical terms. Also, a fully equipped computer laboratory provides opportunities for students to study on theoretical and practical aspects of the field. Graduates of the program equipped with fundamental principles in theoretical and practical terms on hardware and software issues, have a wide range of job opportunities in public and private sectors as computer programmers, to fill the gap of human resources in information sectors and data processing centers. In addition, graduates of this department have opportunities to be employed in many sectors related to computer programming. Thus, they fulfil the staff requirement of these sectors. They can also create their own employment opportunities by setting up their own businesses. Information Processing Centres have become essential parts in all sorts of sectors; therefore the graduates of this department provide for the consistent need for computer programmers to be recruited in this field.

Our vision is to be a role model for all who seek intellectual vitality in a learner-centered and socially responsible academic community in computer programming.

Our mission is to apply the needed academic program to students so that, after graduation, they can confidently achieve their goals in business life.
