Department's 20 Years of Excellence (2003 - 2023)

Started in 2003, the Department of Computing and Technology at Uganda Christian University pioneered the training of science programs and disciplines. Initially offering only one Bachelor’s program (BSc Information Technology), the department grew to include two undergraduate programs and one master’s program by 2013, and four bachelor programs and three master’s programs by 2023. During its first decade of existence (2003 – 2013), the department also gave rise to several other units that have since become independent departments and faculties, such as the Department of Engineering & Environment and the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences. We are thankful to the Lord for the contributions the department has made to the UCU community and the nation.

The department is looking to the future by broadening its offerings in new emerging industry 4.0 fields and establishing itself as a hub for research in artificial intelligence, data science, mechatronics engineering, robotics, Cybersecurity and Informatics. To do this, it has launched programs in Data Science, Electronics and Communications and is currently in the process of introducing a BSc in Mechatronics & Robotics Engineering, a PhD in Computer Science & Engineering, MSc in CyberSecurity and Digital Forensics, and a BSc in Industrial & Systems Engineering.

The Department of Computing and Technology strongly emphasizes providing undergraduate students with practical and industrial skills training. Through various practical labs located on campus, undergraduates are given intensive practical instruction in both hardware and software, allowing them to reach technician-level proficiency in their first year of study. These labs include the Electronics and Robotics Lab, Networking Lab, Embedded Systems Lab, Hardware, Automation, and Prototyping Lab. Additionally, we are establishing a Hydraulics, Pneumatics & Thermodynamics Lab and a Manufacturing Processing Lab.

We highly value our students and offer them assistance to help them grow academically and socially. The Student Liaison Office and Code Buddy programs mentor students to become responsible adults who positively impact the tech industry and the country. Through student clubs, Innovation sprints/praxis, and community outreaches, students create innovative projects that address society’s problems and align with the global development agenda.
