Katsina State of Institute Technologies and Management has launched a state of the art Network Laboratory. The event which took place on the 17th of July 2017 was attended by the Rector, the Registrar, and several key officials of the institution were in attendance. The Rector in his address stated that the launch of the Network Laboratory was in line with the vision of the institution and the goals for which it was established.
Some of the equipment commissioned were a Local Area Network with high-end servers, 50 workstations, switches, routers, power systems, and cooling facilities. The new network laboratory will provide an opportunity to the students of the institution to engage in sophisticated network design and testing.
The idea of establishing such a laboratory is to help in building technical capacity in key areas of ICT so as to ensure that the youth of Katsina State are adequately prepared for the challenges of the 21st century. ICT also being a key driver of economic activity, this center and other such investments by the Katsina State government led by HE Aminu Bello Masari, would ensure a bright future for the state.
