ICT Center Deputy Director (MIS) Mr. Paul Kariuki giving a speech during the function

 

This afternoon, ICT Center held its performance torch high above other departments by conducting a remarkable outreach program in Rungiri Mixed Secondary School; Kiambu County. The spectacular event was meant to provide a platform for mentoring and enlightening the students in making prudent career choices in accordance with JAB standards; much as it was part of the Center’s corporate social responsibility. This occasion was facilitated by the ICT Welfare team and key speakers were Mr. Paul Kariuki-Deputy Director ICT Center (MIS), Ms Hada Aketch-Web Champion School of Business and Mrs. Josephine Ndung’u- Project leader (MIS). 

Through her humorous and motherly speech, Mrs. Josephine Ndung’u introduced the students to the University’s atmosphere of peak of academic and research excellence; the fact that it emerged best in Kenya and 14 in Africa in the latest Web metric ranking was a testimony to this. The students were relatively informed of the incomparable university student population that is way above 65,000 (and still growing), the diverse faculties that amount to 30 and over 300 programs that give a prospective student the freedom to select the best course.

She summed up her talk by notifying them on how ICT Center has undergone systematic and progressive maturity stages that have seen it turn into a center accountable for the Nation’s leading ICT innovations and development of homegrown solutions.

Ms. Hada’s speech, conversely, was anchored on the various careers that ICT offers to the prospective student. With apposite knowledge of ICT, the students could be future Application programmers and developers, Systems administrators, IT managers, Data Modelers, Software support, analysts, consultants and engineers.  She also exposed them to the interconnection between ICT and other prestigious professions like journalism, medicine, teaching, law and accounting.

Finally, Mr. Kariuki shed abundant light on techniques of selecting suitable subject combinations that can enable a prospective student earn a better place when making a career choice. Being a JAB senate exposed him to a wealth of knowledge in matters pertaining subject selection and combination.

In his eloquent speech, the deputy director pointed out that ICT center, on behalf of JAB, productively manages all the applications for degree students in more than 30 institutions nationally. He recapped his speech by challenging the prospective students to work hard so as to earn a place in the prestigious University of Nairobi. He wished the form four students success in their KCSE exams.

The ICT Center continues to be the heart of all the University functions and boasts of a lasting cordial relationship with its customers and stakeholders both locally and internationally. As a goodwill gesture the event ended with a fêted prize giving secession that had vibrant gospel artists from K24’s Kubamba crew entertaining the gathering.
