Department of Computing and Information Technology


The CIT department started from a very humble beginning as course units offered under business administration. The course units were particularly computer applications offered to all university students, inline with the university policy requirement of computer literacy for all. In 1997, computer related diploma and certificate were started. Later, in 1999, the computer unit was started up in the human resource department. This unit took on computer related courses and later in 2001 it introduced a new degree course. In Sept 2006, the university council upgraded the computer unit into a fully fledged department in School of Business Administration. Since then the Department has registered tremendous growth in the following areas;

·         student numbers,
