    Today, we live in a knowledge society where computers are pervasive, and impact on almost all aspects of modern life. Computers and the internet has changed the way we work, learn and communicate; it is only the beginning of a new revolution as the potential of IT has not yet been fully realized especially in Nigeria. This is an exciting time for Computer Scientist as the discipline is now an essential source of tools and technique for advancement in almost all spheres of human endeavor. As a result the need for knowledgeable Computer Science and Engineering graduates has increased dramatically, and the current breakthrough in IT has rapidly led to skill shortages across the IT sector. The Department of Computer Science is the largest of such Department in the country. Our students are prepared for rewarding and flexible careers.

    We offer a very broad range of courses spanning almost all aspects of Computer Science and Engineering leading to B.Sc. Computer Engineering, B.Sc. Computer Science and B.Sc. Computer Science with Economics degree at Undergraduate levels. Other courses leading to strong academic and business oriented programs are also offered at Postgraduate levels in Computer Science. The Department do not only train young minds into professionals, but also inculcate discipline required for real life sustenance as allusion to the University's motto "For Learning and Culture" . so they are encouraged to eschew violence, embrace honesty and modesty, and also make academics their priority while on Campus.We collaborate with industry which is an indication that our degree programs are leading edge; graduates from the Department are well prepared for the challenges of the dynamic and fast growing software, hardware and in fact, the entire IT industry.
