Premier Digital Tech University

In 2017, Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and MDEC awarded and recognized 13 Premier Digital Tech Universities and Preferred Digital Tech Polytechnics as top institutions of higher learnings that can deliver first-class theoretical and practical training. This is one of the steps taken by the government to produce top talents and future leaders in the digital tech industry. We initiated a recognition status to deserving IHLs through various and meticulous assessment processes. If you’re a student, #mydigitalmaker can help you find out more about the IHLs and which one fits you best.

 

Through this initiative, these premier institutions can act as benchmarks for other institutions to follow and also be easily identifiable by aspiring digital tech students.
