About Faculty of Information Technology

Faculty of Information Technology

The Faculty of Information Technology is one of the most recent faculties at the University of Tripoli, as it was established in pursuant to the former General People's Committee for Higher Education Decision No. 535 of 2007 regarding the creation of Information Technology Faculties in the main universities in Libya.


Upon its establishment, the Faculty consisted of three departments: Computer Networks Department, Computer Science Department and Software Engineering Department. It now includes five departments: Mobile Computing Department, Computer Network Department, Internet Technologies Department, Information Systems Department and Software Engineering Department.


The Faculty’s study system follows the open semester system by two (Fall and Spring) terms per year. The Faculty began to actually accept students and teach with the beginning of the Fall semester 2008. It grants a specialized (university) degree in information technology in any of the aforementioned disciplines. Obtaining the degree requires the successful completion of at least 135 credit hours. Arabic is the language of study in the college, and English may be also used alongside it. It takes eight semesters to graduate from the Faculty if Information Technology.


The Faculty aspires to open postgraduate programs in the departments of computer networks and software engineering in the near future.

With the God' well, a new data cente rhas been installed within the faculty premises. The new data center is donated by Almadar Aljadid and Huawei company in Libya.  The data center is the first of its kind in Tripoli University and across all technical colleges in Libya. It will support the practical side within the IT students. The current storage capacity of the data center is 10TB, with 8 servers installed. The faculty would like to thank both Almadar aljadid and the Huawei companies for their contribution. Thanks is also extended to those who where behind this acheivement within the faculty.

Multiprotocol Label Switching

Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a core networking technology that operates essentially in between Layers 2 and 3 of the OSI model; for this reason, MPLS has been referred to as operating at Layer 2.5. MPLS can overlay existing technologies such as Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) or Frame Relay, or it can operate in an entirely IP native environment; this can allow users to take advantage of existing Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) while making a move towards converging all network traffic, such as data, video and voice, at a pace that users can accommodate and afford. MPLS provides. its users a number of advantageous features such as traffic engineering, network convergence, failure protection, and the ability to guarantee Quality of Service (QoS) over IP. arabic 2 English 27

Integrating LAB Work With Classes in Computer Network Courses

The use of the communication and information technology tools can aid students in their lab work to add more flexibility to the accessibility and providing of up-to-date higher education allowing students accessing knowledge anytime, anywhere which will facilitate the lifelong learning and provide accessibility to the curriculum and other students’ resources from anywhere at any time. Laboratory work by students in the information technology and engineering fields of study is a must requirement in all accreditation agencies and targeted employment places. This chapter demonstrates a project based learning technique that has been integrated with ordinary classes in computer network courses. The tools used in this study concentrates on the modeling and simulation of different aspect of computer networking that highlight different skills needed to any computer network engineer. arabic 8 English 53

Most Common and Reliable Traits for Fusion of Biometrics

Biometrics technologies have been around for quite some time and many have been deployed for different applications all around the world, ranging from small companies' time and attendance systems to access control systems for nuclear facilities. Biometrics offer a reliable solution for the establishment of the distinctiveness of identity based on "who an individual is", rather than what he or she knows or carries. Biometric Systems automatically verify a person's identity based on his anatomical and behavioral characteristics. Biometric traits represent a strong and undeviating link between a person and his identity, these traits cannot be easily lost or forgotten or faked. Since biometric systems require the user to be present at the time of authentication. Some biometric systems are more reliable than others, yet biometric systems are neither secure nor accurate, all biometrics have their strengths and weaknesses. Although some of these systems have shown reliability and solidarity, work still has to be done to improve the quality of service they provide. In this paper we present the most common and reliable known biometric systems suitable for Multimodal Biometrics Fusion, providing highly efficient and secure systems, showing their strengths and weaknesses and also presenting technologies in which may have great benefits for security applications in the near future.
