The Faculty of Computer Studies (FCS) at the Arab Open University (AOU) offers leading-edge programmes of study in the most in-demand fields through UnderGraduate and PostGraduate programmes. Currently, FCS offers a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and Computing (ITC) with five track options, Bachelor of Science in Graphic and Multimedia Design/Technology (GMD/T) and a Master of Science in Information Security and Forensics. The ITC Programme and the MSc programme are in partnership with the Open University (OU), UK. These two are validated programmes of study and they provide students on opportunities to obtain dual degrees (i.e., one from the AOU and the dual one from the OU, UK). By virtue of being validated programmes, the FCS has a team of External Examiners from reputed UK Universities to ensure that quality of these awards is of the same standards as those offered at comparable Universities in the UK. Since the FCS at AOU operates in 9 county branches (i.e., Kuwait, KSA, Egypt, Bahrain, Jordan, Lebanon, Oman, Sudan, and Palestine), therefore, please check with your Local branch to ascertain the programmes of study that are being offered in your branch.
The FCS philosophy is to keep its programmes up-to-date with the latest technical advancements, satisfying the relevant market/employer needs. In addition, the AOU, in general, is keen to keep its programmes revalidated from the OU, UK to provide our students with extra international recognition to maximize their employability possibilities.
