 Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT)

The Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) degree is a 4 year 128 credit hour program taught in English, designed to produce graduates who are competent in their major disciplines, as well as IT in general: graduates who are ready to be involved in the development of Omani industry. As the name "Colleges of Applied Sciences" suggests, our students are exposed to significant practical work and, where possible, linkages with Omani industry are being developed and exploited.

 The BIT program contains a core of main stream IT courses which have exposed our graduates to the concepts and topics about which all who work in the IT field should be familiar. Typically: web design and development; software design and implementation; information systems analysis and design; operating systems; networks; database; IT security; professional ethics; and such analytical courses as discrete mathematics and data structures. IT is a fast moving field however, and so space has been left in the program which can be filled with the innovations of the time: ensuring our graduates are aware of the latest IT trends.

The three majors of the BIT are presently Software Development, IT Security, and Networks: a fourth major, Data Management, is just being introduced. The majors permit our students to explore their chosen field in greater depth with the addition of highly focused and specialized courses, as well as electives which are also slanted towards their majors.

Graduates of the BIT will be intellectually developed; have advanced knowledge and practical abilities in a range of IT fields; be able to work in a team or unsupervised; will have advanced problem solving skills; will pursue lifelong learning; and will have multidisciplinary and multicultural perspectives. They can expect to find employment in small businesses and large organizations alike, as well as the opportunity to pursue further study overseas.
