UOWD launches 2 new degree programs.

Byline: Dubai

University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) has launched two new bachelor programs in IT, Bachelor of Information Technology in Management Information Systems and Bachelor of Computer Science in Digital Security Systems.

Both programs are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education and the Australian Government. The programs are fully recognised within the UAE, the GCC and internationally for further education and employment in the private and public sectors.

"At UOWD, we have structured these programs to incorporate new components to make them relevant to the regional market," said Rob Whelan, president of UOWD.

"We anticipate an increased demand for these programs as the UAE steps up its efforts toward becoming a knowledge hub and businesses increase their dependence on IT for diverse needs. Also, threats to IT infrastructure have been on the rise in this part of the world; hence the need for proficient IT professionals will only grow."

UOWD is offering 10 per cent off on first semester fees to students who apply and pay before March 31, as part of its efforts to provide relief to students and parents, in view of the current economic situation.- TradeArabia News Service
