The emergence of Computer Science as a discipline is one of the most significant intellectual developments of the twentieth century. The Computer Science field covers a rapidly growing body of knowledge concerning algorithms, information processing, communication, languages, and information systems. It utilizes both theoretical as well as experimental approaches to advance the state of knowledge in these areas. The power of this paradigm is evident everywhere in our technological society. It has begun to dramatically change our concept of reality. Almost every aspect of everyday life has been transformed by information technologies advanced by Computer Science. As a result of these technological advances, we have unprecedented opportunities for providing rapid and efficient access to enormous amounts of knowledge and information; for studying vastly more complex systems than was previously impossible; and for advancing in fundamental ways our understanding of information processes in natural and artificial systems.
Continuing improvement and encouraging innovation in the computer science program for the purpose of providing the market with qualified graduates that can distinct their career in computing, sustain their self-development, serve their society and keep their ethical choices in their profession.
The objectives of the DCS at The Applied Science University are to create a new breed of scientists, armed with the knowledge of computer science trained in computer science as well as the appropriate scientific and engineering disciplines. In addition, we provide students with the tools of information technology that were enabled by advances in Computer Science to transform business practices through the emergence of electronic marketplaces, electronic investing, electronic banking, sophisticated software tools for scheduling and workflow and inventory management. Our society is on the threshold of an era of intelligent artifacts, which is being ushered in, to a large extent, by advances in Computer Science and information technology.
The department is playing a major role, with other Jordanian Universities, in providing the basic understanding and the fundamental operating of computer systems to all non-major students in the university. This participation, will not only provide the basic knowledge, but will also narrow the digital divide in Jordan as a whole. Our undergraduate circular is always under constant review to reflect the new emerging technologies and the high demand of the Jordanian market.
