The Management set up the new ICT Centre of the College on the 29/10/13. The ICT is a service unit which is responsible for students’ biographic and demographic data, staff data management, staff and student training, and offers advisory ICT services to the College management. The ICT/MIS Centre has a Director and Deputy Director, who manage its day-to-day running. The Centre also has staff from all disciplines of ICT who help ensure that the centre functions as it should.
The ICT Centre envisions an institution with excellent technological services that will support educational, administrative, training and research operations.
The ICT Centre sets out to:
- Empower the college with information and technology that will develop the total person through efficient and effective teaching and learning, research and administration for positive impact in the society.
- To train a new generation of highly motivated, competent, skillful and innovative students and staff, who can compete globally and tackle developmental challenges in their environments using ICT.
To develop and maintain a professional and dedicated training solution to the College. The training unit is poised to providing assistance to the College in integrating technology into the teaching and learning process. The training unit tailors staff and students in training in order to fit into their specific requirements. The unit ensures that all members of staff and students of the College both old and new are trained in different applications to an appreciable level.
The unit provides total coverage of all the appropriate training needs of the College, it also assists in capacity building and professional development through in-house training programmes for staff and students of the College. It also provides operational support for students and staff of the College.

We have had the privilege to supervise, monitor, man, and implement some network projects in the College both out sourced and internal projects, these include:
- The ICT training lab equipped with fifty computers and networked through wireless connections. It was an FCMB project, manned and maintained by the ICT.
- Another project that we facilitated was the NCC WI-FI project, which installed three sub-stations at strategic locations in the College that made it possible to cover about 50% of the College campuses. It was targeted to give Staff and students the flexibility of internet access from anywhere – great tool for teaching and learning.
- Subsequently we designed and built Computer based Testing Center for the College using legacy equipment and technology which networked 200 computer systems. The project was geared towards generating IGR for the College. It is continuously being used for the online JAMB examinations and it is one of the best, if not the best in the state. We are looking forwards to attracting other establishments like the National Open University, the Petroleum Trust Fund, PTDF and others to leverage on the facility to write their online examinations.
- The WI-FI phase 1 is a project which we supervised. It covers about 4% of the College. We look forward to integrating it with pre- existing infrastructure to increase the coverage.
- Currently, five labs have been networked in the new ICT building. The labs house a total of three hundred (300) networked computer systems. This is a great resource for teaching and learning, also for writing online examinations. We intend to use it as an addition resource during the next JAMB examination to boost revenue generation.
WORK IN PROGRESS
We are upgrading from paper based testing and OMR machine marking to computer based testing (CBT) for the post UTME. This will start from the next examinations. This will not only engage our network resources to the maximum, it will make the entire examination process benefit from full automation.
In another development, the College is currently deploying a virtual library in one of the labs networked already. We intend to link at least 100 systems to interact with four e-library servers in house. These servers will also be linked with international digital libraries across the world. This will encourage functional and effective teaching and learning as well as enhance the institutions internet presence.
