The Department of Computer Science (CS) was established in the academic year 1991/1992 as the core department in the Faculty of Science. In 2002, the university established the Faculty of Information Technology and the CS was hosted at it. The CS offers an undergraduate study program leading to a Bachelor Degree in Computer Science and postgraduate program leading to Master of Science in Computer Science. The Computer Science (CS) program provides an in-depth experience focusing on the theory and practice of computer science. The CS program focuses on preparing students to meet the advances in computer science through the use of various technologies by providing an excellent in-depth background in computer science. The undergraduate program has 13 faculty members and 212 students. The Faculty of Information Technology, including Computer Science program, is accredited by the Higher Education Accreditation Council and by the Ministry of Higher Education in Jordan. In the year 2017, the faculty was awarded the Jordanian “silver level" Quality Assurance Certificate.
