Welcoming Message from the Director

Ahmadu Bello University Zaria had a vision of establishing a cost-effective information and communication technology base that would support the emergence and sustenance of a competitive world-class teaching, learning and research environment that would break new grounds in dissemination of knowledge and information of the highest quality. In line with this vision, the University succeeded in deploying a robust optic-fibre network linking the major University campuses. The robust IT infrastructure facilitates delivery of high-speed internet and intranet access suitable for e-learning services, on-line applications and multimedia communication services. In furtherance to achieving this vision and to maximally harness the benefits from the abundant potentials, IT services should be deployed effectively and efficiently to improve service delivery. With this conviction, the ICICT is saddled with the responsibility of providing timely and qualitative computing and information technology services for the University. The mandate is to ensure that the Institute is empowered to enable the University take a pride position as one of the best ICT-driven universities in Africa and in the world. On behalf of the entire staff members of the Institute, we wish you well in your academic pursuit and all your endeavors. I hope you will explore our website to gain additional insight into the various programmes and services we offer.
