The Computer Services also known as IT Department was established in 1997 through funding from the Northelbian church in Germany and the efforts of Dr. Wolfgang Kruger. This Department provides the students and staffs with computer training, access to email, the internet, and other computer related services. The Computer lab contains seven PCs and a network printer. The network is also connected to the Library wifi so students with laptops can access email, Internet, library catalog and the printer from their own computer.
Every staff member and the student enrolled in a residential course are entitled to an email and computer access accounts. First-year students are required to take computing skills and word application courses. These courses are taught by the IT staff. The advanced word application workshops are also available for BD, MTh, and Ph.D. students and other writing dissertations or projects.
The IT staffs are responsible for the day-to-day care of the whole computer network, including the email and finance systems. It is from this Office that the College’s computer network of about 75 PCs is managed, including approx. 30 student laptops. The IT office provides file management and storage, data backup, printing, website management, user & network security, email services, finance systems, as well as internet access and technical support across the network.
