Bachelor of Science Honours Degree in Digital Technology

Why Digital Technology

We are in the digital era in which information acquiring, processing and storage is done digitally or remotely. The degree aims at transforming computer systems by producing graduates who develop systems that enable the generation, storage, retrieval and transmission of digital information for public and private corporates. The gained knowledge can be applied to high performance computing, data science among other domains.

Digital Technologies are now driving rather than enabling business enterprises. Thus, a new genre of manpower is required to harness the awesome capabilities of Digital Technologies and to tap the potential of this tool to its maximum. The university has partnered with a local Networking Academy to training our students in IT Professional courses like CISCO, CEH among other professional areas they desire to pursue. Course highlights includes Emerging Technologies in Practice, Computer Ethics, Systems Analysis and Design, Integrated Business with ERP Systems with ERP Systems, Electronics, Mobile Application Development, Technoprenuership, Cloud Infrastructure and Services; Information Systems Security and Wireless communications. In addition, the students will do a compulsory Entrepreneurship Course to equip them with knowledge on how to start and manage their technology businesses.
