One of the most important features KKU focused on while developing this service is creating service tickets where a suggestion, request or a complaint is treated as an open ticket until solved. In turn, weekly reports are provided on the progress of the tickets and notifications are sent to the responsible parties on any late requests.

As a part of scientific research activities,The third scientific seminar in the department of Computer Science and Intensive English Program has been held where three researches have presented as follows: 1-Teachers’ and Students’ Attitudes towards L1 Use in EFL Classrooms in the Contexts of Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia The role of a mother tongue (L1) in the teaching and learning of a foreign language (FL) has been the subject of much debate and controversy. This paper reports on a piece of research carried out in our own teaching environments (at universities both in Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia) and presents an analysis of the attitudes of students and teachers towards the use of learners’ mother tongue (in this case Bengali and Arabic) in English language classrooms at the tertiary level where English is taught as a non-major subject. For the study, two surveys with the same questionnaires were conducted in two universities each from Bangladesh and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) with the participation of 1000 students and 30 teachers. Results suggest that a judicious and moderate use of L1 does not hinder learning; rather, it assists, aids and facilitates the teaching and learning process thus providing the teacher with an effective pedagogical tool for maximizing the learning outcome. 2- ASPECTS OF FEMINIST WRITING A PRESENTATION OF COMMON ISSUSES ABSTRACT –Feminism emerged as an important force in the Western World in 1960s when women realized the attitude of their male colleagues who swore about equality, was actually the strategy used by them to keep women subservient, then a revolution by women to fight against them, and against racism and sexism was felt. This awakening spread over and as a result feminist criticism emerged on as an off –shoot of women’s Liberation Movement. Beginning with the interrogation of male-centric literature that portrayed women in a demeaning and oppressed model, theorist such as Marry Ellman, Kate Millet and Germaine Greer challenged past imaginations of the feminine within literary scholarship. It is very important for us to know that who these women writers are, what did they write and what were the sources of their writings. The present paper in its context talks about some female writers, the feminist view of discussion in their writings and their place in literary writings either they are written by male writers and female writers. The paper focuses on some of the above said important aspects of feminist writings and some of famous feminist writers also.

Second Research: Title: The impact of MIS on the performance of workers in business establishments. An applied study on the implementation of dams in Khartoum from 2005-2007. Prepared by: Dr. Maram Ahmad Ali Al Tayeb Main Ideas: 1. The theoretical framework of management information systems 2. Administrative performance in the dam implementation unit 3. Case Study Third Research: Title: Effect of the banking system in Sudan on savings (Case study on Faisal Islamic Bank of Sudan) (1996-2005) Main Ideas: Identifying ways to attract saving deposits and studying the policies and financial procedures that affect deposits and finding out the causes of cash leakage. The study discusses the effect of the Sudanese banking system on saving. A case study on Faisal Islamic Bank of Sudan from (1996-2005). The research discusses the problem of poor saving deposits in the Third World and studying the policies and financial procedures that affect the savings deposits. The problem of research is that the Third World countries suffer from weakness in domestic saving deposits, and that most of them are outside the banking system. Is this due to a relationship between saving deposits, bank defaults, and saving deposits? Is there a relationship between the currency in the public and the saving deposits? The study came up with several results, the most important of which is that the Sudanese banks, that follow the Islamic Sharia’a do not only serve Muslims in the homeland or other Islamic countries, but also provides a message of guidance for humanity regarding the role of Islam. Thus, the goal of attracting savings is not to profit under the Islamic system but to achieve economic and social development.  The relative importance of the Central Bank deposits item increased during the period from 1999 to 2002, in contrast to the period 1996-1999, where the contribution of other items was higher than the contribution of deposits in the structure of the use of the resources of the banking system
