ICT at the University of Zimbabwe

Progressive and able leadership of the UZ Executive and ICT Director has propelled the University of Zimbabwe to be the leading institution in utilizing and innovating with Information and Communication Technologies among Zimbabwean universities. The Executive laid the framework for ICT development by establishing the University Computer Committee to hold stakeholder consultations, oversee ICT Policy development, and implementation, conduct feasibility studies, and plan implementation. The Executive also facilitated the improvement of internet bandwidth from a measly 2Mbps in 2010 to 190Mbps by 2013. The Executive is pushing for more research from the University community and this continuous improvement in bandwidth will enable more research. The Executive is also hankering to have a Zimbabwe Research Network which will link all Universities in Zimbabwe to Universities in the Region and globally.

With a strategic plan in place, UZ Computer Centre will be able to attract resources for this ICT Strategic plan implementation. UZ will explore partnerships with individuals, Zimbabwean organizations, and international foundations. One of the most successful outcomes of building partnerships at the University of Zimbabwe was the UZ-VLIR Partnership which saw the implementation of the UZ fibre backbone, setup of the UZ server room and training of ICT personnel.

Partnerships will play a key role in ICT development and implementation at the University. Partnering with the Local ICT Companies, international foundations, and our students will enable UZ to remain innovative and responsive to the ICT needs of the University community.

The next step in ICT development at the University of Zimbabwe will focus on continuing with existing partnerships and building new ones to ensure self-sustaining ICT systems.

Sustainable

The University demonstrates a commitment to partnerships with the private and public sector both in Zimbabwe and abroad. UZ Computer Centre will forge partnerships which will help the University implement its ICT strategic plan and sustain its ICT infrastructure. The goal is to build the ICT capacity of the University.
