The great development in the field of information technology and communications has assessed the emergence of many new specializations of an interlaced nature. In view of this development, the University of Information Technology and Communications created and opened the College of Biomedical Informatics on 10-10-2019. The College specialization is one of the modern specialties resulting from the overlap of information technology with biomedicine, and it is considered as a leading specialization concerned with studying all known techniques for employing and using modern information technology in the field of biomedicine in order to achieve a set of goals, including:
1- Benefiting from the scientific progress made in information technology and communications and its application in all fields of biomedicine.
2- Promoting the services provided in the field of biomedicine, and this includes health services in the field of human medicine, veterinary medicine, agriculture, and others.
3- Formulating and developing techniques and methods that can be used to achieve the best application of information technology in the field of biomedicine.
The College of Biomedical Informatics contains two departments: the Department of Intelligent Medical Systems and the Department of Bioinformatics, as the graduates of both departments have multiple capabilities and skills to serve the community.
Despite the novelty of the college, it seeks to achieve the requirements of academic standards according to the terms of local and international accreditation bodies to produce distinguished students who are able to compete in the labor market locally and internationally. The college also works to build an attractive work environment for all distinguished energies, including faculty, researchers, administrators, and technicians, by enhancing cooperation between them and spreading the work in the spirit of one team. In addition to the faculty seeking to cooperate and exchange experiences with all interested parties.
