  • Produce qualified ICT professionals in addition to the traditional University output
  • Set professional standards and encourage students to obtain skills in commercial ICT applications and in the usage of necessary tools

  • Give an opportunity to those non-graduates already working in ICT to obtain a formal qualification in ICT through self-study.
