History


The Centre of ICT, Mukuba University was started in the year 2005. As a committee of academic staff with no technical people involved. Most of the activities involved training each other on the use of computer applications. In 2009, the university though of employing a technician to help in the technical part of the ICT infrastructure of the institution. This was because there was a lot of demand from the IICD C4C project whose mandate was to improve the ICT infrastructure in and outside the institution- in the 20 district resource Centres. The Centre further employed another technician and now there are three technical people headed by a Coordinator and is one of the centre in the DVC Administration division. The centre provides ICT Services to all Staff (Faculty & Non Faculty) and Students across all University Departments/Sections at all its campuses and centres.

It has four subsections
