In the Name of Allah, all praise be to Allah (Exalted and Glorified be He) alone, and peace and blessings be upon the most honorable Prophet and Messenger, our Prophet Muhammad, and upon his family and companions.

Out of the keenness of the College of Computer and Information Systems on providing students with an opportunity to practice the applied aspect of the field, side by side with academic knowledge, and raising their scientific and practical level, the college has paid attention to the summer training course.
