Jackson Muhirwe, Lecturer

Office: VirtualDr. Jackson Muhirwe, specialist in IT, Networking, and Cybersecurity for the Department of Information Technology and Administrative Mannagement

I bring on board a wealth of international experience and multicultural perspectives gained from both the IT industry and academia spanning over 15 years. I have extensive experience managing IT systems in government and intergovernmental organizations.
I earned my Doctorate in Computer Science from Makerere University, Kampala, with research visits carried out at the University of Groningen, Netherlands, California State University, Sacramento and St. Louis University.

I am passionate about teaching information technology with a call to impact and change lives through education. My professional and colorful life experiences stretch from Seattle to Cape Town, Brussels to Seoul and to all the Capital Cities of East Africa.

When unplugged from the digital devices, I enjoy spending time with my wife and four children. I also enjoys taking part in community activities, most especially those involving the youth.
