Welcome to the Software Engineering Department
Software Engineering is a relatively new discipline in information technology. This specialization has emerged to meet the needs of the labor market by finding people with experience and knowledge in matters related to the design and structure of software building to access integrated software based on a solid foundation that keeps abreast of developments and challenges in the modern technology era.
Hence the need to establish a software engineering department under the umbrella of the Faculty of Information Technology at the University of the most expensive men, Al Hussein bin Talal University. The Software Engineering Department was established in 2009 together with the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Computer Information Systems, based on the development of new and updated study plans that correspond to the needs of the market and the work, in addition to providing the faculty members with competence and high efficiency to compete with other universities.
In order to graduate from the Software Engineering Department with a bachelor's degree, he or she must successfully complete 132 credit hours: compulsory university (12 credit hours), elective university (15 credit hours), compulsory college (25 credit hours) And 9 credit hours). The department offers a range of specialized software engineering courses for up to 30% of total credit hours, ranging from software design, software engineering, software operation and maintenance, fault tolerant systems, and other important topics that qualify students to compete in the labor market with their counterparts In this area. In addition to the specialization of the student in the field of software engineering, the student is provided with the basic concepts and advanced in the field of information technology within the materials presented in the Faculty of Information Technology represented by more than 50% of the total credit hours. In the field of general culture, the student obtains a great deal of information within the materials offered at the university level.
The main task of the software engineering department is to bring out a generation of students who can compete in the labor market and are able to participate in building the future.
