The Institute of Information and Communication Technology is a Vocational Enterprise Institution (VEI) approved by the Federal Ministry of Education and the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) to deliver technical education and vocational training in Information Technology.

The goal of the Institute is –
to create access to technical education and skill development
equipping and empowering our grauates with skills needed for self reliance
providing an alternative route to tertiary education.

Our programmes are 70% practice-oriented and were designed to impart the necessary skills towards becoming an enterpising,self-reliant and skilled graduate.

The vision of the institue is to be a first class innovation Enterprise Institution, offering practical knowledge and entrepreneurrial skills to students, that will enable them to be productive and self-reliant in the field of information and Communication technology

The mission
to produce ggraduates that are well-rounded in Science, Technology and Vocational Education, and also imbued with necessary management and entrepreneurial skills that would enable them contribute meaningfully to the Nigerian economy and enhance global competitiveness

To produce middle level manpower for the private and publice sectors of the Nigerian economy, thus bridging the link between education,technology,innovation and the labour market

Value of CERTIFICATES

Vocational enterprise Institutions (VEI’s) and Innovation Enterprise Institutions (IEI’s) are education institutions recently approved by the Federal Government of Nigeria to provide a veritable alternative route to higher education.

They are designed to offer vocational,technical, technology and professional training at post-basic and tertiary levels, with a view to meet the increasing demand for technical manpower by the various sectors of the economy.

VEI’s and IEI’s offer both part-time and full-time education leading to the award of the National Vocational Certificate (NVC) and the National Innovation Diploma (NID).

The National Vocational Certificate (NVC)

The NVC can be used to gain admission into a National Diploma (ND) or a National Innovation Diploma (NID) programme.

The National Innovation Diploma (NID)

The NID can be used to gain admission into a Higher National Diploma (HND) programme.
