The Directorate of Information Communication technology was hived off from the School of computing and Informatics. The Core function of the directorate is to address the technical aspect of ICT in order to support the University in achieving its mission and Vision.

Objectives of the Directorate are:

  1. To establish and maintain ICT infrastructure and services.

  2. To advance the intellectual and human resource capacity through use of E-resources.
