Program Description

Networks and Cybersecurity


The graduate student obtains a Bachelor degree in Networks and Cybersecurity after completing all compulsory and elective requirements of 132 credit hours. This program includes the latest developments in the fields of computer networks, cybersecurity, network security, ethical hacking, digital forensics, wireless networks, network programming, network management, cloud computing and the Internet and its various applications. The department includes specialized experts with international accreditation and certifications in the field of networking and information security. The department organizes annually a series of workshops and training courses to refine the skills of students and qualify them to the labor market. The student of the Networks and Information Security program graduates with more than 12 professional certificates including free of charge courses and workshops. The department has also signed agreements with local and international companies, such as Cisco that is specialized in the field of networks and information security, in addition to joining the Estarta training and employment incubator. The department has been developing study plans in line with the rapid developments in the field of information technology. The Network and Information Security program is officially accredited by the international Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Our program is the first of his kind to receive such international accreditation in Jordan. The ABET certification paves the way for a graduate to work globally, because ABET accreditation is recognized worldwide through international agreements, and many other countries’ national accrediting systems are based on the ABET model. In addition, the ABET accreditation enhances employment opportunities as most multinational corporations require graduation from an ABET-accredited program as a minimum qualification.
