Computer science has been a popular specialization in Iraqi universities since the 1980s. Over the past four decades, it has rapidly developed and diversified in 2017, the ACM Foundation approved five main disciplines: computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, information systems, and information technology. Although these disciplines share a common foundation in computing, they differ in their focus on the study of details. Computer science is primarily focused on programming principles, databases, computational theory, algorithms, artificial intelligence, data structuring, and operating systems. It also covers applied aspects such as robotics, computer vision, and image processing. Information technology, on the other hand, is more focused on applied aspects such as computer networks, cloud computing, cybersecurity, data centers, and web applications. It also covers theoretical aspects such as programming principles, databases, and data structures. In 2020, the Foundation of ACM added two new departments, Cybersecurity and Data Science, to the existing five. Most public and private organizations have an independent department of information technology that is responsible for managing and applying information technology in the organization. This includes managing computer networks, servers, e-mail services, and protecting the organization from cyber threats.
In addition to managing information systems and cloud services, organizations require an IT department to manage their technological needs. The field of information technology is a global specialization with a high demand in the labor market and good salaries. This demand increased after the COVID-19 pandemic, as institutions were forced to close their headquarters and employees worked from home. This transformation compelled institutions and companies to adopt information systems to manage their work. The Department of Information Technology at Warith Al-Anbiya University was established as a new department within the Faculty of Science to meet the need of government and private institutions for this specialization. The curriculum is based on modern international curricula developed by IEEE/ACM and experts from IT and network manufacturers. The graduate of the IT department must possess technical skills such as hands-on experience and soft skills such as time management, teamwork, communication, project management, and technical writing. Therefore, the curriculum should support and develop these skills. There are several job titles that an IT graduate can fill.

Admission to the college is based on the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research’s electronic form, and the student must have an Iraqi preparatory certificate or an equivalent certificate, endorsed by the General Directorate of Education in the province, and be born in 1990 or later.
The minimum admission grade is 57%
The student first creates their own account within the application system using their active mobile number and choosing a password so that they can later access the central admission system for private education. After that, the student activates the advertising, electronic reservation, and communication services through SMS messages so that the student can use these services during the application phase and match the data and registration.
Then the student fills in their data by starting with choosing the graduation department and then following the system’s instructions during the data filling process according to the requirements of each category of students.
The application system provides a special interface for electronic reservation management to review the private university education department or audit centers in universities and private colleges according to the requirements of each category of students.
The electronic data matching process for students from the Ministry of Education graduates who have the exam number and password.
After the data is matched, the student can start the application process by filling out the electronic forms with 4 options within the general application channel in addition to two forms for those included in the special channels.
Then the system performs the comparison process dynamically and accurately, where the students’ acceptances appear according to their choices in the application forms, and the results are constantly updated throughout the application phase.
Then the registration phase begins after the end of the application phase, where the student takes (the registration code) and goes to one of the departments in which they were accepted to complete the registration process.
After the student completes the registration process in the college in which they were accepted, their other acceptance options are canceled to give the opportunity to other students according to the results of the comparison process.
