The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is currently undergoing a phase of constructive development which aims at localizing all modern technologies, to contribute to the growth and prosperity of the country at all levels and in all fields.
One of the most important localization objectives that the kingdom strives to fulfill is the establishment of organizational and skill foundations that can leverage the talents of Saudi people in order to develop the latest technologies locally to serve future development plans, support the efforts in building a knowledge economy, and also help fulfill the future vision of Saudi Arabia.
From this perspective, the College of Computer and Information Systems at Umm Al-Qura University has been careful to provide a bachelor's program in information systems to meet the needs of the labor market. The college ensured that the program covers areas of interest for all IT staff, which, in turn, works to refine not only the basic skills, but also the essential professional competencies that are required in the field of building software systems at all levels. Consequently, the output of this program will be capable of promoting innovation in the domain of designing Saudi-made software systems that match the quality of global software systems.
