RSUST has gradually proved that it's Nigeria’s foremost e-varsity in many ways. It is the first and only university in the nation whose student admission/administration processes from application, Post UTME, registration, admission payments, accommodation booking, course registration, result entry and computation, etc. are all fully electronic and resident on the university's portal.

The present Management of the University has also made it mandatory for all students (returning and fresh students)to carry out all admission and registration processes online.

To encourage the use of the online portal, the university in partnership with Cinfores Ltd, and Microsoft Corporation is running a compulsory certification course on ICT and Digital lifestyle. This special certification course which is compulsory for years 1 and 2 students, is geared towards the adoption of ICT by the students thereby arming them with one of the essential life skills.

In addition, to the Information Technology Academy (ITA), the university is one of the two(2) universities that has an MTN WIFI backbone all around its campus. This has made internet access within the school community readily available for all students/staff irrespective of the device they carry. Laptops, tablets, mobile phones, etc. with WIFI access directly connects to the MTN WIFI based on a pay-as-you-go internet subscription.

Furthermore, RSUST stands out as the only university which has students’ results uploaded in a dynamic database from year 2000 till date (14 years!). The institution has through this database been providing results, transcripts and certificates for its graduands in the last five(5) years without much trouble.

All these and many more have distinguished the university amongst the committee of universities in recent years. At the outset of the present administration, the university ranked 76thout of 89 universities in the country. At the end of 2012, it ranked 19th after the massive deployment of ICTs to improve its administration/management functions. Now it is worthy of note that the new ranking for 2014 shows RSUST at the 12th position of 128 universities in Nigeria.This is no mean feat,considering the fact that the criteria used several years ago are still in operation even as the strides taken by the university to use Information Technology to improve service delivery for all stakeholders is yielding the much desired results.

This therefore culminates to the fact that in RSUST they just don't talk about ICT, they use it to make the desired difference and change in all spheres of school administration. To this end, we say the new ranking of the university is simply deserving and we look forward to another landmark stride towards the very top; blazing the trail for others to follow.

Keep Living ICT!!!
