Chairman Message


The National IT (NIT) Academy’s strategic objectives are aligned with those of the Kingdom's Vision 2030: developing the IT sector and a digital economy, increasing local workforce skills, equipping citizens with competencies that will meet the future needs of the labor market, and increasing Saudis participation in the workforce. As such, the Academy is investing in Saudi human capital by training and equipping Saudis with market relevant ICT skills, bridging the skills gap, and developing a “job-ready” talent pool to utilize and benefit from. The Academy’s curriculum focuses on technical and professional skills, as well as addressing emerging technologies that are aligned with market needs where students are ‘trained to hire’ As the Chairman of the NIT Academy, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone to our organization and encourage you to experience the best of what the academy has to offer.

Warm Regards,
Mr. Yousef Al Ulyan
