Philosophy and Objectives
The philosophy of the College derives from the fact that today’s knowledge economy requires a multi-disciplinary IT-driven approach with professionals and scientists from different disciplines connecting and collaborating in deployment of a wide range of skills and knowledge to provide solutions to societal problems. Situated in a Christian mission University, the College is committed to the goals of learning and faith – learning as both the means to and the result of dogged scholarship; and faith as the personal appropriation of truth for godly living.
The objectives of the eighteen (18) programmes offered by the College were crafted with a view to produce job-ready graduates in engineering, science and technology, as the case may be, with appropriate IT skills and capacity for independent thinking, creativeness and resourcefulness. Each of the current thirteen Departments of the College has articulated its specific mission and objectives as well as the specifics of its academic programmes in line with the vision and mission of the College.
