7- Program Admission Requirements

Thanaweya Amma (Mathematics) or an equivalent certificate. Admission to the faculty is through the central Bureau of admission to public universities governed by the Ministry of Higher Education.

 

8- Regulations for Progression and Programme Completion

·      For applying to this program, the student should pass two levels. The student should fill an application form by the end of the 4th semester to choose the program he/she wishes to join. Currently there are two active academic programs: Information Systems and Computer Science.

·      The student is promoted to the next higher level if he passes sufficient credit hours and certain GPA.

 

 

8- Teaching, Learning and Assessment

A variety of teaching methods are used. While some professors use classical white board and pen as their major medium of instruction, an increasing number are moving to utilize the more advanced IT-based media like PowerPoint presentations. Students are encouraged to participate in group work. This is due to the fact that large information system development is possible only by team work.

Assessments of students are based, in the first place, upon examinations. The course catalogue defines explicitly the methods of assessment for each course. All courses carry the same weight (100 marks). In general terms, marks for courses with no lab components (e.g. Humanities) are distributed as 40% for the semester work and 60% for the final written exam. Marks of courses with lab components are distributed as: 40% for the semester work, 10% for the lab. exam.(just before the final exam. period), and 50% for the final written exam. An exception to the above mentioned is the graduation project course where 50 marks are given to the semester work and the other 50 marks are given to the presentation, documentation, and oral exam. Students are given one extra month after the final year exams in order to complete their projects. Very few instructors allow open book exams. The semester work is assessed based on assignments, mid-term exam, quizzes, lab work, seminar presentations, and project reports. The course instructor has the full freedom in determining the methods used for assessing the semester work. A common practice is to distribute the 40 marks for the semester work among a mid-term exam that carries 20 or 15 marks. The rest of marks are given to the assignments, presentations, and reports submitted by students during the semester. Some of the instructors give 5 marks or so for the attendance. By law, any student who fails in attending at least 75% of the lectures, tutorials, and labs should not be allowed to attend the final semester written and lab exams.
