The School of Computer Science and Information(SCSIT) is one of the few schools that were accredited by the National Council of Higher Education(NCHE) when Kampala University opened the gates to its pioneer students in the year 1999.The school which is located at the main campus Ggaba was inaugurated by His Majesty Ronald Mutebi II The Kabaka of Buganda on 15 January, 2005. Other than offering academic programmes SCIT works as a service department/help desk in the university. There are 4-5 fulltime staff members always present to provide technical support to students, other schools, and administration. SCSIT has branches in other campuses within the town Kampala and across the country. In Kampala,CSIT programmes are offered at KU City Campus and KU Mutundwe Campus. Other branches are at Jinja, Luweero and Masaka. SCSIT is fast growing and one of the high performing faculty, recognized by NCHE at each visit. <p></p> This mission is achieved through: <mark><br>(a) Providing market oriented demand driven curriculum that equips students with both the theoretical and practical tools, necessary for analyzing and solving economic, social, cultural anddevelopment problems using IT skills. <br>(b) Providing a broad based knowledge through interdisciplinary curriculum. <br>(c) Maintaining close ties with public and private institutions,banks, and none-profit organizations and stakeholders.</mark>
