The faculty of Computer Sciences and Information Technology was established in December 2001 to satisfy an urgent need for a program of advanced study and training in the ever-developing field of Information Technology. Our objective is to achieve levels of qualifications worthy of being recognised by the relevant international computer science institutions. The faculty offers a distinguished program tailored to prepare the students for an interesting and rewarding career in the burgeoning computer industry underpinning the economic growth and social development of the world today. Information Technology plays a vital role in all aspects of our lives and has become an essential function in the activities of both private and public institutions. We endeavor to turn out career-ready graduates well trained in current technologies and equipped with the necessary foundation and theoretical knowledge to enable them to update their skills and keep abreast of new developments in a fast moving industry. Our curriculum is designed to give students a solid grounding in both theoretical and practical topics in computer sciences. We continually review our curriculum to keep up to date with the latest development in computer science education. Our computer facilities are of the highest specifications. All laboratories are linked together through a superior digital network linking over 300 computers, which are connected to the internet through a high-speed broadband connection. Our laboratories and lecture theatres are equipped with modern audiovisual equipment, employing large format plasma screen technology, for efficient and accurate instruction and delivery of the subject materials.
