The construction of needed facilities at the Cross River State Institute of Technology and Management, Ugep in Yakkur Local Local Government Area is nearly completed setting the stage for its commencement of academic activities soon.
Mr. Christain Ita, the Chief Press Secretary to Senator Liyel Imoke who conducted journalists round the facilities in the institute on Tuesday said what is being awaited is the erection of ICT platforms to facilitate e-learning which is one of the requirements by its affiliate partner, Highbury College London.
“The institute is attached to the Highbury College London and they are insisting on the erection of ICT platforms for e-learning and Dell is handling that and as soon as that is done, academic activities will commence”.
According to Ita, today’s fast paced world dictated by technology, employers require special skilled manpower and e-learning is a basic standard which the institute will adhere to in order to make every graduate of the school highly skilled and functional in his or her field of specialization. “Basically, the standard here is for the institute to work in partnership with companies which are the employers of labor on what skills they need and e-learning is key to achieve that”.
He said the administration block, lecture hall, male and female hostel blocks have been completed along with residential quarters for both the senior and junior staff. “Each room accommodates between three and four students to make the place comfortable for learning for the students”.
