Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Centre

Computer and Communication Technologies are the essential tools for delivering good and oriented higher education.

The ICT Unit is therefore the pivot in which most activities on University Campuses revolve.

The centre monitors and manages the university information (staff/student records) and database along with McU operating systems administration, power infrastructure support, and supply of information to units/departments/faculties in desired formats.

It also works with faculty and departmental examination officers as technical support programmers to produce examination results using the University Result Manager.
