Background:
  • Kampala University School of Computer Science and Information Technology (SCSIT) was established in August, 1999. This was the time when Kampala University opened its gates to the pioneer students of this university.
    The School is located on the shores of Lake Victoria Ggaba at the main campus of Kampala University. The refurbished computer lab of SCIT was inaugurated by His Majesty Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II the Kabaka of Buganda, on January, 2005.


    SCSIT plays a pivotal role at Kampala University by producing skilled manpower in the modern age of information era. It provides basic computational skills to all students of the university.
    SCIT is a Center Of Internship (COI) for other universities in the country. Many universities including some public universities send their students for internship to the school.
    SCIT is working under the principal of quality assurance, such that there are standing committees. E.g. Admission committee, Examination etc.


Vision Statement.

  • To be a hub of Computer Science and Information Communication Technologies (ICT) at local and International level, in teaching, research, and services.
