The Faculty of Information Technology and Communication Studies strives to provide students with a stimulating environment for learning and research. One way of achieving this is; student-lecturer ratio is always kept low. Lecturers and academic advisors are willing to provide relevant support to students when needed. Our collaboration with industry practitioners brings practicality to learning experiences in the lecture hall. Regularly, students pay industry visits and undertake internship programmes to acquire practical experience. The faculty’s participating in the university’s Annual Master Class Programme, also brings students into contact with industry giants in the fields of IT and Communication. This ensures that our students combine theory with practice and become relevant and competitive in the labour market.
The Faculty also has a functional Language Centre that provides general linguistic teaching and learning as well as organizing short courses and proof-reading services to the general public.
