Department of Business Technology and Innovation

Welcome to our department

Welcome to the Department of Information Technology & Computing. Our primary roles are all aimed at helping students to become distinguished leaders in the realm of Information Technology & Computing. Our Christian faith and values serve as root-anchors to all we do. The Degree of ICT has two threads of emphasis. One is on basic network skills and the other is on software development but with an emphasis on web-centric development and client-server architectures. These skill areas are fundamental to computing today. In addition, we understand that the field of ICT evolves at a very fast rate. Consequently, two other items are critical to your experience and have been embedded into the Degree. First, you need to learn to learn. New skills are needed virtually every day. It is impossible to teach the breadth and depth of computing in a single Degree. However, we must and will prepare you to be a lifelong learner. This is imperative if you are to remain a desired employee or run a relevant IT business. Secondly, we will expose you to current topics of interest such as robotics, “Maker Lab devices such a 3D printers”, etc. The faculty and Department Head see it as their life goal in preparing you for success in your chosen career. We set high moral and academic standards for ourselves and for you because we expect the best. We are here to help and guide students in whatever way possible. So, please contact us with any questions or concerns and we will guide you to the best answers.

Overview

Information Technology is at the heart of all modern economies and all indications are that it will continue to play a decisive role in future economies. It has become pervasive and ubiquitous affecting people’s lives in many unimaginable ways a decade or two ago. All major global economies are now becoming knowledge based economies. Such economies of the future will be computing intensive. The workforce must therefore be prepared with the technological skills to be effective players.

Information Technology is the one discipline capable of providing the knowledge base for the economies of the future. This programme aims to prepare the key players for economies of the future and to provide the research base for the development of the technical expertise that will be required.

The BSc. IT programme is a four-year programme of 8 semesters, which aims to equip graduates with a strong theoretical foundation and broad technical skills to take on appropriate professional positions in Information Technology, to develop and apply Information Technology in organizations and society, grow into leadership positions or pursue research or graduate studies in the fields of Computing and Information Technology.
