INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGIES (ICT)

Information and Communications Technologies field is a newly established area of study in response to the needs for the offering of a curriculum selectively drawn from the curricula of Telecommunications (TC), Computer Science, and Information Management (CSIM). With strong emphasis on communications aspects — rather than on the aggregation of hardware, software, networks, equipment and related industries — ICT recognizes the important role of information services and applications in the creation of a complete ICT infrastructure.

Programs
