If Computer Science is the course you choose to study in the university, then you’ve got to choose the university that best offers the program.
Unlike Law and Medicine, there is no professional body that rates the study of Computer Science in Nigerian Universities, but lecturers with years of experience in both field and lecture rooms can authoritatively recommend the best school to study this course for admission seekers.
Dr Roberts Charles, who is a Senior Lecturer of Computer Science at the University of Ibadan is one of such authorities.
The lecturer who has been teaching the course for 17 years at the premier University identified 12 universities that have proved to be very good at teaching the course.
Dr Roberts said he drew his conclusions based on his interactions with the graduates of the schools who came for master’s program at the University of Ibadan.
Here are the Universities he recommends for admission seekers who want to study computer Science:
University of Ibadan
Federal University of Technology, Akure
Federal University of Technology, Minna
Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife
University of Calabar (UNICAL)
University of Benin, (UNIBEN)
Covenant University, Ota
Lagos State University, Ojo (LASU)
Kwara State University, (KWASU)
Ladoke Akintola University, Ogbomosho
Ekiti State University (EKSU)
University of Lagos, Akoka
Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
The lecturer however blamed incompetent lecturers in the universities for the half baked computer science graduates in the country.
NOTE: Most Computer Science students in Nigerian Universities today are not practical oriented and it is because they don’t have lecturers that are very competent and that is a problem. When the lecturer is not competent, the students too won’t be confident in themselves.”
