YUC is one of the colleges which
have been recently founded in
the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to

st
development in
higher

It is an academic institution characterized by its
distinguished leadership and faculty members. The aim
of the administration at YUC is to achieve excellence in
teaching and learning and thus make it a premier
instituti

human resources from all over the world.

The administration has equipped the college with state
of

the art teaching aids available in the market. It
consistently pursues its goal of improving the college’s
learning resources and IT infrastructure and finds new
ways to utilize this infrastructure to enhance the
process of teaching and learning. In a rel
ated context,
the curriculum at the college is regularly revised and
updated to meet the national and international
expectations. Moreover, the e
-
learning project, which
provides learning stimulus beyond traditional learning
methodology, is in its final st
age of implementation in
the college. In a nutshell, the administration
continuously and dedicatedly works to improve all
aspects of the academic life at the college.

Sinaiyah

Madinat Yanbu Al
-
Sinaiyah (MYAS) possesses the good
features and merits of cities although the period lapsed
since its establishment is not longer than two decades.
MYAS is a typical industrial fortress, a work of art in
architec
tural engineering or a platform with unlimited
capabilities among civilizational cities. It is a good
evidence of what have been achieved on the welfare
and awarding land under the rational leadership.

MYAS is located 350 kilometers north west of Jeddah. It
possesses tourism features due to its location on a
coastal line between the red sea and Hijaz hills. The red
sea with its crystal water and attractive coral reefs
welcomes the people who visit and fr
equent it for

marine picnics, diving and other several types of water
sports. A few miles away, the tops of Hijaz hills and
vallies constitute a natural scenery that extends to
include gradually the osises and natural wild lands .

setup in the mid
-
seventies to plan, construct and
subsequently manage the two new industrial cities of
Jubail and Yanbu, one on the east coast
and the other
on the west coast of Saudi Arabia.

The monumental task of RCJY was not only to develop
industries, housing, education, health services, and
recreational facilities, but also to get involved in
community and social welfare development. Besides

attracting a range of industries to the area, RCJY has
created a pleasant landscaped environment out what
was formerly arid desert. The local architecture
combines the best of Arabian community tradition with
modern principles of
design and construction.
Strict environment
regulations govern the
activities of industries to
ensure a safe and clean
area. It is under the
auspices of the RCJY that Yanbu University College
operates as an educational institution.

The Organization

On 21 September 1975, RCJY was e
stablished as an
autonomous organization of the Saudi Government. The
Commission is governed by a Board of Directors and its
Chairman reports to the Council of Ministers. The

grades are not counted in the calculation of the
cumulative
GPA for the BS program. The academic
status assigned to the students at the end of their last
regular semester in the preparatory year continues
through their third academic level (i.e. first semester of
the freshman year).

If a student passes only the En
glish part of the
promotion examination, he/she will be partially
promoted to the next academic level, but is required to
fulfill any remaining preparatory year requirements
during the same year.

YUC

Attendance
-
Students

YUC understands that a studen
t’s attendance in classes
is

directly related to his/her performance in the course.
A regular student is expected to attend all classes and
laboratory sessions. To discourage class absenteeism of
students, the college enforces a policy of mandatory
class a
ttendance. Faculty member must take
attendance in the beginning of each class. If a student is
not present during the roll call, he/she must be marked
absent.

Students are given warnings as their absences increase.
Absences are either excused or unexcused.

The warning
system is as follows:

YUC

Bulletin 2012

13



41



1.

Warning 1 (W1)



unexcused absences exceed
10% of total contact hours.

2.

Warning 2 (W2)



unexcused absences exceed
15% of total contact hours.

3.

Denial (DN)


unexcused absences exceed 20%
of total contact hours.

Normally, s
tudents will submit excuses to the student
counselor. The counselor will verify and assess the
excuse and
, if the excuse is found be valid,
the
absences
are converted
into excused absences. A
student may still earn a denied status if his/her
combined excu
sed and unexcused combined exceed
30% of the contact hours.

Examinations

A student’s performance is evaluated through the
various methods found in the assessment strategy. Each
department has its own assessment strategy. In regards
to examinations, each department has the option to
have either a midterm or two major exams durin
g the
course of the semester.
With some exceptions, a
ll of the
courses will have a final exam at the end of the
semester. The results of the major or mid
-
term exams
are disclosed before the last day of dropping courses.

Introduction

Computer science can broadly be defined as the
systematic study of computing systems and
computation. Increasing use of computers in our daily
life has led to a phenomenal increase in the demand for

skillful computer science professionals. To help meet
this demand, the Yanbu University College has
established an undergraduate program that relates
directly and focuses on theoretical understanding,
design, and applications of computer science. The
prog
ram has both academic and professional
orientations which will prepare YUC graduates to meet
complex challenges that may confront them in their
professional careers. This program will also provide a
sound foundation necessary to pursue their advanced
studi
es in the field of computer science.

The BS in CS program is designed to provide several
important features that include a set of core courses to
provide breadth in the field, additional specialized
courses to provide in
-
depth knowledge and
understanding o
f different major areas of computer
science. The curriculum is flexible and provides
opportunity for students to specialize in the areas of
their interests through the choice of appropriate
computer science (CS) electives. The program structure
allows the
students to choose 12 credits (4 courses) as
CS electives and 6 credits (2 courses) as social science
electives. A
well
-
integrated

lecture and laboratory

YUC

Bulletin 2012
-

49



component is another important feature of this
program. More importantly, our program closely
follows
the ACM/IEEE Computing Curricula 2005
recommendations and is designed to match the
standards required to achieve ABET (The Accreditation
Board for Engineering and Technology) accreditation.
The BS in CS program is offered with two options; BS in
CS with CO
OP Training, BS in CS with Capstone Project.

Program Objectives

The objectives of the BS in Computer Science program
are to produce graduates who are competent to:



Apply acquired knowledge of the major areas of
the body of knowledge and the theories of

Learning Outcomes

An "outcome" is what a graduate should be able to do
with what they have learned during a particular
program. Achievement of these outcomes will define
what a graduate should look like when

he/she
graduates. The graduates of the Computer Science
program will possess a sound conceptual
understanding, skills and professional abilities necessary
to:



Perform analysis, specification, design,
implementation, and testing resulting in qual
ity
comput
er software solutions;



Apply theoretical computer science background
and the mathematical and analytical maturity
necessary to allow them to follow and adapt to
technological changes in their discipline or to
enter graduate programs in Computer Science.
St
udents will use automata theory,
mathematics, and abstraction to analyze
problems and their algorithmic solutions
;



Think clearly and communicate well. They have
the ability to gather relevant data, reason
clearly, and persuasively express their
conclusions

orally and in writing
;

YUC

Bulletin 2012

13



51





Demonstrate the knowledge and spiritual
foundation necessary to make ethical and
responsible choices. They will be prepared to
use their computing skills to make a positive
impact on society.

Career Opportunities

Computer Science
jobs are wide
-
ranging and they are
continuously changing as technology

spread out into
every part of our daily lives. All kinds of industries
including petrochemical

industry require personnel with
computer knowledge. Every industry decides on job
titles t

Introduction

Computer engineering is a branch of engineering that
encompasses the theory, design, and application of
computer and information processing techniques.
Computer Engineering Program combines theoretical
foundations in physical and computer science with the
system, software and hardware engineering concepts
which are needed to develop reliable and effective
computer based devices and systems. The Computer
Engineering program teaches both software and
hardware development. Software development focuses
on the a
pplication of engineering design principles for
the development of effective, efficient and functionally
correct computer software. Hardware development
concentrates on the design of hardware structures to
support computer
-
controlled processes.

The BSCE pr
ogram is designed to provide several
important features that include a set of core courses to
provide breadth in the field, additional specialized
courses to provide in depth knowledge and
understanding of different major areas of computer
Engineering. The

curriculum is flexible and provides
opportunity for students to specialize in the areas of
their interests through the
choice of appropriate
computer e
ngineering electives. The program structure
allows the students to choose 6 credits (2 courses) as CE
el
ectives and 3 credits (1 course) as social science
elective. A
