About the Faculty

The Faculty consists of two departments:
 Informatics; Computer Science

The Institution’s transformation process resulted in the decision to restructure and rename this faculty to the Faculty of Computing and Informatics (FCI) with two departments, namely Computer Science and Informatics, in 2014. The Faculty also reshaped the qualifications to offer four undergraduate and four graduate programmes including, for the first time Masters and Doctoral studies by research only.

The Faculty consists of two departments:

There was thus an alignment of the new programmes according to the guidelines of in ternational bodies such as ACM-IEEE-CS-AIS with focus on its latest curriculum guide. This also informed the migration of two institutional core courses (CUS411S and ICT521S) to the Faculty of Human Sciences. A staffing complement of 42 recorded a number of academic achievements, and a continuous staff development programme allowed a number of junior staff and lecturers to embark on doctoral studies, and for some, their Masters. The number of PhD holders increased fr om 5 to 11, with expectation to grow to 16 early in the new year. Great improvement was achieved in teaching and learning with an enrolment of 931, and 98 gr aduates in October. The introduction of e-learning platform to two major core institutional courses (CUS411S and ICT521S) is another highlight. CUS411S received the best e-learning (blended mode) course a ward on the Technology Day at which occasion Johnson Shimaneni was a warded the best e-learning course developer prize for “Accounting Information Systems” (AIS811S). The entire faculty relocated to a newly acquired building, called Information Technology House, and the departments worked diligently with all institutional stakeholders to success fully complete the 4th Institutional Strategy Plan (PSP-4).
