In today’s connected world, much of the focus of technology is in the possibilities that the digitisation of life brings. From big data, internet of things, virtual reality, augmented reality to the relatively simple need to communicate, information technology is at the heart of the industrial revolution we are in today.

Interested in Technology?

The internet has facilitated the development of social networks that reach across continents and we are now all part of a global community wherever we are. All these due to overcoming real technical challenges in computer science, disruptive ideas and the courage to start a new technological venture.

Technology is simply the application of computer science to solve real practical problems that we all face in communication and disseminating information.

How does a grandparent get in touch with their grandkids continents away? How does a head office maintain control over its various outlets and branches? How can a teacher monitor the progress of her students? How does the government track the economic activity of an entire nation? How does a hospital reliably obtain health and biometric data from patients? How do we as consumers source for the cheapest and best product locally and perhaps overseas?

People who are in technology find solutions to these pressing problems through the application of software, and solving problems in computer science.
