In the modern world, ICT is embedded in the day-to-day operations of any organization, from simple document processing to complex artificial intelligence platforms, this discipline has revolutionized the way people interact with inanimate machines and software. Rapid changes in this field requires constant vigilance and adoption of new techniques in handling various tasks to ensure optimal organization efficiency.
The ICT Service department was established to offer ICT services to users who are in constant usage of ICT services and overall management of the ERP system. Currently the department has an ICT Officer and three ICT Technicians to handle the institute’s computer systems and manage the Institute’s LAN.
The department endears to ensure the institution’s ICT services are well managed, providing advice to the management on ICT-related services, and overseeing the coordination of ICT support to end users within Siaya Institute of Technology and beyond.
Over the years the Institute has made great strides in incorporating ICT systems in its operations. The establishment of ICT infrastructure at Siaya Institute of Technology has greatly improved learning subsequently enabling trainees easy access to volumes of course materials using fast internet through the wireless LAN and cabled connectivity options, the establishment of ICT service department has contributed to the laptop training for primary school teachers within Siaya County which was conducted in July 2016 to, we have also strived to ensure that all offices have access to ICT services and support when needed.
The department also prides itself in facilitating the recent rollout of an e-learning centre which will ensure trainees from all walks of life have access to a vast ocean of knowledge and research materials made available by our team of expert trainers from various fields, this will go a long way in ensuring learning continues uninterrupted even during these times of social distancing.
Siaya Institute of Technology prides itself in exemplary performance in every National Examination all year round, this was made possible by the open-door approach and team work adopted by all SIT staff.
I would therefore like to encourage both trainers and trainees to utilize the access to the new e-learning portals as well as the reliable internet connectivity in learning and research for their personal development and the development of SIT Community as a whole.
