The School of Information Technologies and Engineering (SITE) was founded in 2013. The youngest of all, IT was founded with a vision to become a center of excellence in education and a hub of scientific research and discovery of global caliber in the region. Our mission is to produce highly intellectual solution providers with innovative and creative minds and enhanced communication skills who will give back to society by finding and designing new ways in which cutting edge technology will improve lives. We strive to create a thriving environment, which encourages gender inclusivity, where education, research and industry meet and melt into practical applications through our initiatives in Big Data research, applications of Artificial Intelligence, and techno-entrepreneurship.
Societal and technological change brings us to a historical inflection point, where the future cannot be easily forecast from past experiences. This makes creativity and independent critical and rational thinking much needed skills for future engineers. We strive to make SITE the fertile grounds where the next generation of globally engaged innovative engineers design and build, adding value to the regional economy, and improving the well-being of all.
SITE’s home faculty are leading professionals who are dedicated to being at the forefront of teaching and cutting-edge research and discovery. They challenge conventional thinking and encourage students to go beyond the status quo in order to practice innovative approaches. This, in return, creates a constant dynamic conversation on learning through experiencing. Thinking and problem-solving connect here by taking a holistic view on issues with the understanding gained through knowledge across disciplines.
