The Arts and Science College (ASC) was established at the Applied Science University in the first semester of the academic year 2005/2006. The ASC has three departments:
- The Department of Computer Science with Computer Science program.
- The Department of Design and Arts with Interior Design and Graphic Design programs.
- The Department of General Studies, which serves all university departments by delivering general interdisciplinary
According to the university’s mission, the college seeks to provide students with the necessary knowledge and practical skills to meet their educational goals and with valuable graduate attributes for successful employment. Our dedicated college staff continuously evaluate, update, and enhance our courses and introduce new courses towards this goal.
The ASC also strives to keep abreast of market requirements and developments in the Kingdom of Bahrain and the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in order to be outstanding in the fields of Computer Science, Interior Design, and Graphic Design.
A common complaint about today’s university graduates in IT and design is their inexperience in linking theory to practical situations. To address this problem, the ASC focuses on connecting information and concepts taught to real life contexts, through projects and practical applications. In this way, our students develop professional hands-on skills to meet the needs of local, regional, and international labor markets.
The ASC also implements an academic education plan by selecting experienced college members to engage with and advise students regarding their courses and responsibilities.
The ASC offers first class facilities, including state of the art design classrooms and a suite of sophisticated computer labs connected to the university network to support e-learning. Ongoing research is conducted to ensure computer science, interior design, and graphic design courses meet the latest international standards.
I warmly welcome you to come and join our college.
