Bachelor of Science in ICT Education

Information Systems


The Government of the republic of Zambia through the Ministry of Education, introduced the learning of Computer studies and ICTs in all Primary and Secondary Schools in 2015. The country though has very few qualified Computer Science and ICT teachers. The Copperbelt University was challenged by government to meet the shortage. Last year in 2016, the University responded by introducing this programme. The programme runs on both full time and distance modes. The full time modes targets mostly school leavers whilst the distance mode targets inservice teachers. The duration for the programme is four years for full time and five years for distance, although candidate with relevant post secondary school qualifications are exempted from first year.

The main objective of this programme of study is to graduate students with a solid and professional training in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) education. The department believes that the graduates will be adequately prepared to teach a relevant ICT related subject. The programme also prepares the student for postgraduate studies in related fields both in Zambia and abroad.
