Department Requirements

Majors of the Faculty of Informatics & Communication are organized into departments.  The faculty has two main departments:

  • Informatics Department, including three Majors: Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence and Networking & Systems.
  • Computer & Communications Department, including two Majors: Communication and Computer Engineering.

After finishing some of the Faculty Requirements courses, Students can choose their Majors. To follow his study in a major, student should take some courses at department level. These courses are common for all majors in the same department. The total credit hours required at this level is 70-71 CH (Upon to the Department), divided into (64-65) Credit Hours of some compulsory courses and 6 Credit Hours from some Elective courses. This level covers around 42% of the curriculum.
