The Information and Technology Services (ITS) which has changed from Computer Center, Management Information Systems (MIS), NUNET, CREDIT, ICT center, was formed in the year 2010. We are a service unit offering a number of facilities to the staff and students of The Federal University of Technology, Minna.
ITS seeks to address the connectivity and harnessing of the emerging technologies to enhance research capacity. Modernizing the infrastructure and services that support research activities of the institute is therefore a priority of the Department.
Our first point of contact is the ICT Help Desk where we provide effective frontline support to all internal and external end-users in a timely manner. We communicate regularly with customers to update their call progress, monitor and test fixes to ensure that challenges are resolved. The centre also makes available remote access to the systems, logs requests from any caller in a well-designed format that gives details of the caller’s ID and his or her needs, logs details of the officer that may be directed to attend to this request online, gives technical directives to callers on how to resolve certain issues to Network Administrator or Head of Unit as may be required.
