The Computer and Calculation Center (CIC) was created by the September 1988 decree N°67/MENRS to give support to logistic and computer science to the faculties and administration of Université du Bénin, now known as Université de Lomé, in establishing software programs, for this reason the CIC creates software applications for institutions and the university community and offers a framework for computer training at Université du Bénin.

From 1990, the Inter-African Center of Training in Maintenance of Micro-computer Hardware – CAFMICRO, whose goal is to give POST-DUT training to higher technicians in computer maintenance, is opened. In 1995, a DUT branch in computer to train higher technicians in computer has been created.

The Computer and Calculation Center currently has two main divisions

  • The division of computer system in assuring the computerization, maintenance and connectivity in the Université de Lomé
  • The teaching division with training in Bachelor and Master Degrees in software engineering system and networks.

The administrative structures of the CIC are:

  • The assembly of the Institute ;
  • The Direction ;
  • Units
  • Examination Service ;
  • Scientific and Pedagogic Commission (CSP) ;
  • Pedagogic Information Unit (CIP) ;
  • Budget Commission
  • Quality Insurance

The Computer and Calculation Center offers today two (2) bachelor courses:

  • Professional degree in software engineering
  • Professional degree in Maintenance and Computer Networks

In partnership with the Université de technologie de Belfort-Montbéliard (UTBM) in France, it is opened in co-diploma an Information Master with two fields:

  • Software engineering field
  • Systems and Networks field

Beside these two main trainings, the Computer and Calculation Center trains in CCNA certificate. Trainings are either given to a group of staff of a company, an association of many companies, or a continuous training to students. A certificate is issued at the end of each training, but the trained can have access to the site of certification for one month for a SISCO certification.
