About Us

In 2011 the Computer Engineering and Networks department has been established. Currently the department offers Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Computer Engineering and Networks. 

The first graduates from the program were at the beginning of the academic year 1435-1436 ( 2014-2015).


The department mission is to prepare qualified scientific cadres in the fields of computer engineering and networks through innovative scientific education and research.  The department emphasis enabling the graduates to develop creative methodology and analytical abilities and contributes to the service of society. Based on its mission, which is driven from Jouf university mission, the department has decided to target the following objectives:

  • Providing modern knowledge in the field of computer and networks engineering.
  • Apply diverse and effective teaching methods in education.
  • Ensure the practical application of knowledge acquisition and develop the skills.
  • Developing the ability to analyze, extrapolate and solve problems according to scientific and engineering principles.
  • Focus on the scientific research, especially applied research and the promotion of innovation and creativity.
  • Emphasize the commitment to the ethics and systems of society and professionalism in work life.
  • Communicate and create productive partnerships with the community in the field of computer and network engineering.


The program’s teaching plan was reviewed during the academic year 2015-2016 by internal university committee. The program was also one of six academic programs selected by Jouf University for self-evaluation according to the standards and requirements of the National Commission for Academic Accreditation and Assessment (NCAAA) in Saudi Arabia. The self-evaluation was completed at the end of academic year 2015-2016.

During the academic year 2017-2018, revised teaching plan of the program was designed and evaluated by the internal and external reviewers, which was approved by the council of university and ministry of education.  In the current academic year 2018-2019, first group of students are enrolled in the revised plan.

Currently, the Computer Engineering and Networks department has good curriculum that includes the most demanding and influential topics in the computer and networks engineering. This attracts national, regional and international students who aim to get BSc in this field.
