It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the School of Computing (SOC) which is part of Skyline University’s vibrant and dynamic environment with a clear vision of becoming a leading university that is internationally recognized. At the School of Computing, one of our goals is to develop and offer sound academic programs in Computing Sciences and Information Technology that adhere to national and international standards, and that are always in line with emerging industries and global trends. The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT) program offered by the School of Computing is internationally accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET.
At the School of Computing, we continually study the local and global markets for latest programs, especially in areas that are part of the UAE Vision. We also focus on offering our students the best available learning resources to make learning and teaching an enjoyable and fruitful experience. Students can take advantage of the library, the open computer labs, the innovation center, the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) student Club, and can participate in numerous curricula and none curricula activities, in addition, to the Student Professional development program (PSDP) to prepare students for their future careers and helping them find the best jobs in the market. In addition to what I just mentioned above, at Skyline University we highly value our students and we provide them with the best education with a flexible scheduling system that accounts for working students by offering evening and weekend classes. This is coupled with an excellent student follow-up system that monitors and guides students systematically from the day they join Skyline until graduation. Once students graduate, we continue to contact them through our comprehensive alumni system. At the School of Computing, we make sure that our faculty members are always at the top of their profession, and that they continue to develop themselves professionally, in research, and even in community service. Our faculty members work hard not just to deliver their courses using the best teaching and learning Pedagogies, but also to keep close contact with the community, industry, and other local as well as international top universities.
In conclusion, I thank you for choosing the School of Computing at Skyline University College and hope that you will find all the information that you are looking for throughout this website.
