Campus Technology Internship Program (CTIP):
We are involved in project consultancy for a number of institutions of higher education. Our work within these institutions usually involves setting up CTIP- campus technology internship programmes. CTIP recruits and grows young ICT enthusiasts in the campuses to develop their ICT skills particularly in open source technology and promote a better adoption an IT/Internet lifestyle to support their growth. The CTIP also promotes peering and collaboration with CTIP counterparts in other institutions. The result of the CTIP is the development of skilled students who can contribute to the development and support of IT infrastructure within their individual institutions plus create a community of Interns around the country.
