In a way of giving back to the community, the School of Computer Science and Information Technology participates in community outreach activities, by visiting schools and providing simple student-centered services such as computer repair and maintenance  and teaching Basic Computer Literacy to some of the local schools in the area.

Research Projects

Ms. Arinitwe Brenda developed an App that may help the government and the population to stop the rampant land grabbing across the country.
She is a student of computer science developed the App and she is optimistic that if fully utilised by the government, it will reduce unlawful evictions.
With the ‘Zimba App’, one can easily tell the rightful owner of the land he or she is buying.
“All universities across the country should embrace research and innovation since it is the right way to go. It can be downloaded from the app store.
She said if one is not sure of the land he or she is buying, they just log onto the App, type the plot number of the land and all the details about that plot are displayed.
Ms Arinaitwe noted that the App also reveals whether the piece of land is lease or free hold. She adds that if one does not have the plot number, they just put the location of the land and all details are displayed.
“Some people have been evicting Ugandans on the land claiming to be the owners just because they managed to forge the land title. This App will help reveal whether the person trying to evict them for any land is the rightful owner. Those who also buy land without knowing the owner will be helped.
