On Friday 8th February 2019 the Principal appointed Dr. Kelvin Omieno as the acting Dean, School of Computing and Information Technology (SCIT). The School was formerly housed under the School of Science and Computing (SOSCI) as a department of computing and Informatics.

Under the leadership of Dr. Omieno, the school aims to create its own niche by spearheading focused skill-based teaching, research, training, development and community service in the fields of Information and Communication Technology.
the establishment of the school is in line with Vision 2030 and the University College Strategic Plan with a view of the potential of increasing ICT’s contribution to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) through enhanced innovative products, Research, Innovation and Consultancy, increased productivity and utilization of available technologies sustainably. The school will house three (3) departments and one (1) unit namely: Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSSE), department of Information Technology and Informatics (ITI), department of Information Systems and Security (ISS) and Innovation and Computer Applications unit (ICAU). Already the proposal outlining Strategic direction of the school was presented and approved by University College Academic Board. The school has the following programmes approved by Senate and CUE: Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, Diploma in Information technology and Certificate in Information technology.

komieno2ICT is a fast-growing industry in the Kenyan economy and this can’t be gainsaid. The establishment of SCIT will focus the School’s personnel towards attaining the University college vision of being a Centre of excellence in Information Technology, Sciences and Innovation. It will propel the University College towards making its contribution to the local community, the county, and the nation in the attainment of the Vision 2030, and Millennium Development Goals in the East African region. The school aims to broaden the mandate of ICT scientists to open up for more and stronger possible collaborations between the School and other stakeholders/partners including communities, industry and international organizations that are focused on ICT besides rolling out student-specific activities including hackathons, boot camps and research groups such as Software Development Research Group (SoDev) amongst others.
