Institute's Administration

Programmes

Today, there is virtually e-everything; e-mail, e-commerce, e-learning, e-government, etc. It was in response to this global trend that the Jigawa State Government of Nigeria pioneered the establishment of Informatics Institute under a franchise agreement.

Student's Affairs

Learning doesn’t just happen in a classroom. Opportunities for teaching and development exist everywhere and at all times on campus and it’s our job to seize these moments. As student affairs, our job is to foster and promote these interactions.

Campus Sporting

We've a strong sporting ground, whether you wish to  play as part of a team or just want to keep fit! There are plenty of activities for you to choose from to help you stay healthy and active including soccer, badminton & basketball and many more. 

Accomodation

When you are choosing where to study, the quality & value for money of accommodation can be a key part of the decision making process. Where you live can be just as important as what you learn whether on campus, or nearby.

Kazaure

Kazaure, town and traditional emirate in Jigawa state, northern Nigeria. The town has been the emirate’s headquarters since 1819. It was founded by Dan Tunku, a Fulani warrior who was one of the 14 flag bearers for the Fulani jihad (holy war) leader Usman dan Fodio.
