Rector's Message

The unique Information Technology Institute was established by Jigawa State in the year 2000 under the license of Informatics Academy, Singapore, with a view to train and produce IT graduates that would reposition the State and Nigeria as a whole. The institute provides every platform for the students to acquire innovative IT skills that give them more cutting edges among peers.

Currently, we have NBTE fully accredited National Diploma courses and flexible International Diploma courses that are Singapore based, (Informatics). There is also a professional course, C-Tech, that provides cabling technology for those in the communication industries. More courses are being planned as part of the Institute’s expansion scheme.

Since its inception, the Institute has grown to become Nigeria’s flagship, IT-led Institute, known for the excellence of its IT-teaching, IT-training and its IT-services to local, national and international organizations. What remains is for the students and other trainers to be diligent and focused as they join the IT-bandwagon, so as to reap the benefits, individually and or collectively for the overall societal development. We look forward to welcoming you to the Pinnacle of IT at Kazaure, Jigawa State, Nigeria.

I am indeed very grateful to Jigawa State Government for the privilege and honor given to me to serve in this capacity as the third Rector of the Institute, so that we can collectively contribute our quota towards the development and progress of this great and all-encompassing Institute located at Kazaure, Nigeria. I wish all constructive engagements and brighter future.  Thank you.

When you are choosing where to study, the quality & value for money of accommodation can be a key part of the decision making process. Where you live can be just as important as what you learn whether on campus, or nearby.
