As the Head of the Department of IT, I am proud to issue this message to the official website of Hardy ATI which is a breakthrough of our department as well as the institute.

This website is the fruit of the effort of the department of producing highly talented students who are capable of handling challenging tasks.

The newly revised syllabus of the Higher National Diploma in Information Technology is crucial in our mission of producing the best IT professional to the region as well the nation. The subject areas as well the practicals together with specialization will ensure that the final product of the diploma to be ideal for the vibrant field of IT. The students of first year who are involved in developing and managing the website are the best examples.

As the years pass, we are hoping to cater the working people of the region by commencing the weekend diploma in IT, with the guidance of the director and the SLIATE. This will serve the community in developing their personal and professional lives by providing the time and space to be practically trained in the field.

Finally, I thank the students who willingly got involved in this project and making this website a success.
