Mrs. Agnes Nduku
In-charge ICT Services
In this digital and information age, we encourage students to be tech-savvy and ensure they are always up-to-date with technology so as to remain relevant in the industry.
The department seeks to automate all the business processes of the University i.e. Student registration, exams management, Finance, Medical among many others.
The ICT Department is charged with a number of ICT related responsibilities, including training students/staff and updating them on emerging issues in ICT.
The ICT Department is currently implementing an Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERP) to automate the University’s Academic and Administrative operations.
The Department has facilitated deployment of fast LAN cabled in administrative offices as well as Wireless Access Points in the HDS building, library, DOS, Graduation Square, University Business Centre and green library, which all cover a reasonable radius. Both the wired and wireless LAN is supplied with over 42 Mb/s of internet bandwidth, linking the University to the globe. Futher the department has facilitated the connection of wireless access points in all Laikipia University Campuses, that is, Maralal, Naivasha, Nairobi, Nyahururu and Nakuru.
Our internet last-mile infrastructure has been upgraded to fiber optics. This has supplied our internal LAN back-bone with giganet bandwidth LAN speed, improving internet access data rate. It is with the aim of keeping up with the digital age and society that the University has set up a University Internet Services Room (cyber) to enable students access information, carry out research and communicate. This will ensure that we produce high-quality and computer literate graduates at no extra cost.
The department is currently expanding the University Local Area Network (LAN) that will add the following values to access information:
- Creation of more wireless access points within the university, this will enable students and staff to access both local and international resources through internet.
- Access web-based information relating to academics and other relevant university programmes/events.
- Access e-library materials.
- Linking to other campuses through the intended Laikipia University Virtual Private Network (LU-VPNS).
