In Spring 2000, the Chancellor of the University of the United Arab Emirates decided to form a College of IT. Because there are very few IT colleges, there is no set of community standards for the curriculum and management of such an entity. His emissaries called together representatives of several organized IT and Computing colleges in the USA to find out what is involved and what are the best practices. He commissioned a group of experts well versed in the above trends to design a model curriculum for their newly formed College. The committee designed and recommended a model with many innovations including the common IT core and the progressive-competence exhibitions. The model curriculum is purposely designed to help not only the UAEU but also any other university to organize a coherent IT curriculum in a single academic unit. Eight-degree programs and a catalog of 135 courses were created and recommended for the new College of Information Technology.
