Welcome to the School of Information and Communication Technology webpage. It
is among the five schools of College of Science and Technology, University of
Rwanda (UR, CST). Our School aims at producing competent and skillful graduates
catering to the demands of the rewarding ICT job market in various industry sectors.
ICT is the backbone and an essential element of most businesses today. It provides
impetus to the day-to-day business functions by allowing for better cross
departmental or organizational collaboration and communication, more effective
streamlining of business processes, better management of human and material
resources, and better facilitation of human system interaction through the
implementation of integrated, efficient, and reliable information systems.
More importantly, ICT literally opens up the access to a whole world of information, a fact
that has fundamentally changed the way we live. ICT knowledge areas include
computer software and hardware, networking, information management and security,
database management systems, wireless communication, the Internet, artificial
intelligence, and embedded electronic devices, just to name a few. Each of these
knowledge areas has seen constant and revolutionary developments almost every
day for the past few decades.
In fact, the ICT field will continue to make substantial progress in the foreseeable
future. The prospects of a career in the ICT area are simply enormous given the
heavy reliance of business and individual activities on ICT. In fact, ICT graduates
can be employed in a wide range of industry sectors including software
development, technical consulting, telecommunication, web design and
development, banking and finance, manufacturing, biotechnology, healthcare,
education civil service.
