Certificate in Information Technology (CIT)
The Certificate in Information Technology programme is a six (6) month programme that introduces students with no background in IT to the field. Students will be presented with a solid foundation necessary for further study in the field of IT. The programme also provides students with an elementary knowledge in IT, information sciences and computer sciences.
Diploma in Information Technology (DIT)
The Diploma in Information Technology (DIT) is a two –year programme that focuses on application and management of information technology. This programme is taught using hands-on, reality based approach to education in which students apply what they learn in class to solve real-life problems
Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BIT)
This is a four (4) year programme designed to equip students for a professional career in the IT industry. It also aims to provide sufficient theoretical grounding and professional development skills to facilitate adaptation to changing technology. Students can specialize in core areas such as software engineering, network and system analysis, database administration, and Internet or multimedia technologies.
On completion of the programme students will become familiar with current technologies and tools while being exposed to new and innovative ways of approaching a variety of technical problems and issues. Additionally, students will learn to work in multi-vendor environment, analyze and evaluate organizational systems and processes to recommend software solutions to meet an organization’s needs and goals.
Master of Science in Information and Communication Technologies (mICT) (in collaboration with Aalborg University, Denmark)
This programme prepares students to meet the increasing demand for information technology professionals. The curriculum combines knowledge of a specific subject area with the concepts in Informatics that will help students adapt to technological changes throughout their careers. It educates students on the underlying science of information and information technology and explores their human implications.
Doctor of Philosophy in Information Technology (in collaboration with Aalborg University, Denmark)
The doctoral programme is designed to provide students with theoretical and methodical training needed to perform original research in computer information systems, computer forensics and systems design and management.
The programme emphasizes teaching and research experiences and provides many experiences for students to become active in class as teaching colleagues and lecturers and /or to participate in research projects with individual faculty or through our affiliated research centers. The programme has considerable flexibility in terms of preparation and course selection for this milestone.
