Republican Decree No. 419 of 1995 was issued to establish the Faculty of Computers and Information at Ain Shams University, and studies began in September 1996. There are scientific departments in all faculties that offer a Bachelor of Computers and Information Science in Computer Science and Information Systems. The Faculty of Computing and Information Science is also awarded in computer systems, scientific calculations, bioinformatics, software engineering, artificial intelligence, digital multimedia, and cybersecurity.
All international universities and scientific societies have recognized that the focus of information science is the scientific study of how to devise, generate, encode, transform, send, collect, organize, store, retrieve, transmit, measure, and evaluate information.
This sheds light on the diversity of disciplines, and this is in addition to the presence of many interdisciplinarities, and that studies in the departments of computer science, information systems, computer systems, and scientific calculations constitute academic paths that engage within the broad path of information.
It represents a new sector in university education. A special committee has been formed for the computer and information sector, which includes the deans of the faculties of computers and information science in Egyptian universities. It is a completely independent committee from the engineering faculties sector, the science faculties sector, and the business faculties sector. In all faculties of computers and information science, there are scientific departments that award a Bachelor of Computers and Information Science in Computer Science and Information Systems. The Faculty of Computing and Information Science at Ain Shams University is unique in granting a Bachelor of Computers and Information in Computer Systems, Scientific Calculations, and Bioinformatics affiliated with the new programs at the university ((Bioinformatics). Encryption, conversion, transmission, collection, organization, storage, retrieval, transmission, measurement, and evaluation of information in a manner that sheds light on the plurality of disciplines, in addition to the existence of many interdisciplinarities, that are all involved in the broad track of information sciences.
In addition to the above, the university has continued its support for the faculty. The university was keen to provide the financial support required to establish a private library for the faculty, which contains the latest references and specialized scientific books, in order to serve students at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The faculty has invested the financial support provided by the university in developing and increasing the efficiency of all lecture halls available to it, as well as in equipping laboratories for information technology, a laboratory for digital electronics and logical circuits, a laboratory for microprocessors and a laboratory for computer networks. These laboratories include modern personal computers. This is in addition to the basic and specialized laboratories for different scientific departments, which contains more than 250 personal computers and computers serving networks of laboratories. This is in addition to dedicated research laboratories for master's and doctoral dissertations, as well as applied research projects, including the field of computer science, information systems, computer systems, and scientific calculations, which are laboratories with a capacity of sixty devices. The faculty also includes a laboratory for high-speed information networks that allows it to view and browse all Internet sites with a capacity of twenty devices. The faculty has established a local information network to connect all computers in the various laboratories to each other, as well as linking local information networks to the information network The Supreme Council of Egyptian Universities contributes to this below:
1- Automating the affairs of students, faculty staff, employees, and faculty workers, and providing various services in these sectors with high efficiency.
2- Linking computers in homogeneous sectors to centralized printers, reduces the number of printers that can be used.
3- Linking scientific and research laboratories to the Internet through the university's information network.
4- Updating and maintaining specialized software and databases and contributing to the establishment of information stores.
5- Full control and control of all faculty hardware and software.
6- The student can benefit from any device in the faculty to run the appropriate programs.
7- Facilitating technical support and speedy detection of faults.
The faculty has invested the financial support provided by the university in developing and increasing the efficiency of all lecture halls available to it, as well as in equipping information technology laboratories.
