Welcome to the College of Information Technology at AHLIA University.

The College of Information Technology was established as a constituent college of Ahlia University since it was founded in 2001. Over the last few years, the College has seen a remarkable growth in several critical areas, including student enrollment, number of well-qualified faculty with international experience, research, and well-designed academic programme offerings. Underlying all our College growth and development is a commitment to student learning, a commitment to deliver high quality education in accordance with international standards and in tune with the local needs of the industry and business and a commitment to ensuring a continuous improvement process that delivers a quality education to our students. The College aims to produce high quality professionals in the field of Information Technology and Computer Science to enable them to excel in their fields of work and make a significant and valuable contribution to society. Therefore, our programmes apply a hands-on, reality-based approach to education that allows students to apply what they learn in class to solve real-life problems. Our teaching philosophy and problem solving based learning process prepare students to become innovators, and leaders of the future.

The College offers three degrees, B.S. degrees in Information Technology (BSIT) and Multimedia Systems(BSMS), and masters’ degree in Information Technology and Computer Science (MITCS). In 2010 the College received full confidence in its Master programme (MITCS) in a review conducted by the Quality Assurance Authority of Education and Training (QAAET). Furthermore, we are proud to announce that under the Programmes-Within-College Review (PWCR) by the same authority, the College has received confidence in all its three programmes.
