The ITIC is designed to develop the networks and information requirements of university academic staffs and students for their conduction of more effective researches. This center plays an important role in expanding the sciences and technologies of the KGUT via providing data infrastructures (internet and intranet), establishing web services and local networks, and supporting hardware and software systems. Preparing and executing the IT programs in line with major policies and plans of the university is another main task of this center.

Video-conference is a unique technology that makes the establishment of audio and visual live relation and interaction feasible between people in different locations at different distances. Geographical distances, shortage of specialized human resources in different branches of science, as well as the increase in working expenses have all led to difficulty in access to the universitys required sources; therefore, this technology is provided at the GUAT as a great help to overcome the mentioned barriers.
In-service Training Unit
Training the employees to promote their knowledge, skills, and performance is being carried out at the KGUT using software and hardware systems. Since education planning is among the top priorities for all universities, the GUAT holds educational and in-service training courses for the employees in ICDL, internet, network, etc.
