offers programs in Information Technology and Environmental
Management. With the formation of the Faculty at the end of 2013
and changes to the structure of the University, the IT department
previously under the Faculty of Management and Computing, was
transferred to the Faculty of Science.
The Faculty offers a wide range of high quality Advanced Certificate,
Diploma and Degree level courses in Information Technology

The program allows you to earn your Masters from a world
renowned university while staying at home.
