We are proud of the outstanding reputation that our graduates have in the market, which reflects the School’s efforts to raise the levels of teaching and training, with the objective of adapting and cultivating students' skills and preparing them for the upcoming growth of the IT sector.
It gives us great satisfaction to see that our graduates receive recognition from national and international IT firms. PSUT adheres to an ongoing policy of forging strong links with the labor market and has cultivated good relations with both local and international large IT companies. Several agreements have also been signed with academic institutions and well-known universities worldwide in order to exchange experiences, knowledge, and technology. KHSCS continues to attain scientific and academic achievements locally, regionally and internationally. In the summer of 2013, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accredited the BSc program in Computer Science, among other programs. ABET accreditation is considered a great milestone for PSUT, bringing great prestige to the university, its faculty members, and students.
The Computer Science program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Over the last fifteen years, PSUT’s curriculum has been validated as PSUT graduates have established impressive track records and built successful careers. KHSCS has focused on standardizing all courses and curriculum to meet ABET-recommended formats and policies, and thus provide high quality assurance for the School's academic programs.
