NUC Restructures Nigerian Universities Computing Programme Into Distinct Disciplines


The National Universities Commission (NUC) has unveiled a newly restructured curriculum for Nigerian universities.

Executive Secretary of the commission, Chris Maiyaki said the implementation of the new curriculum will commence in September 2023.

Maiyaki further stated that the new curriculum CCMAS would make up 70 per cent of the curriculum while the university decides what to include in the remaining 30 per cent.

According to him, the implementation will help sharpen the future of the education sector.

Universities in the country are expected to officially have 17 disciplines of faculties namely Administration and Management; Agriculture; Allied Health Sciences; Architecture; Arts; Basic Medical Sciences; Communications and Media Studies; Computing; Education; Engineering and Technology; Environmental Sciences; Law; Medicine and Dentistry; Pharmaceutical Sciences; Sciences; Social Sciences and Veterinary Medicine.

Quite notable is the splitting of Computing into Cybersecurity, Software Engineering, Data Science, Information and Communication Technology, Information Technology, Information Systems, and Computer Science.
