Information technology as a specialized sub-domain of computers science focuses on the application of the acquired computer science concepts. It mainly deals with the application of computer systems for storing, studying, transmitting, and manipulating available data or information.
Since its inception the department has been recognized for excellence in research and teaching. The department has a thriving research environment with active with active research groups in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics, Complex and Social Networks, Data and Web Mining, and software Engineering. Graduates from the department are frequently recruited by both academia and industry, and ex-students of the department occupy top positions in both
academia and industry all over the world.
The vision of the Information Technology is to make leaders in Information Technology education in support of teaching and learning, and also to be the preferred source of quality technology education, research and community services delivery for the local, national and international levels.
