Covenant University Students Enlightened on Career Path in IT


Covenant University students of the Department of Physics have been enlightened on the robust career pathways in the IT sector at the just concluded Town and Gown seminar, held at the College of Science and Technology conference room recently.

The Guest Speaker, Mr. Adeboye Olanrewaju, an IT consultant, in his presentation titled, “Nurturing a Career Path: The IT Broadway Options,” emphasized the key factor that determines one’s venture in the IT sector, which is to have a detailed analysis of one’s self that helps determine the career in IT.

“Before going into any field in the IT sector, you must be able to define who you are; what are your passion, vision etc. Answers to these questions will help you go a long way in determining which career path you will eventually take when you are in the sector,” he said.

Mr. Adeboye, further stated that a lot is yet to be discovered in the sector, noting the different careers in the sector where the students can venture into after their degree. In his words, “IT is the lifeline of any economy. It is the heart of all economics and more fields in the sector will erupt, creating more job opportunities and making life easier.”

The Head, Department of Physics, Dr. Temidayo Omotosho, noted that the Town & Gown interaction was designed to help the students acquire relevant knowledge about the industry. He advised them to develop their skills and take advantage of the available training in the University, in order to be industry relevant after graduation.
