Informational Development Center
The follower of the path of Sebha University, which was linked to the change in information technology with the beginnings of the establishment of the Department of Computer Science in the College of Science in the second half of the last century in the year 1984 AD followed by the establishment of the Computer Engineering Division of the Department of Electronic Engineering at the College of Engineering Technology, followed by the qualitative shift taken by the university to establish a service center Computer in the year 2001 AD, which is considered the first center in the national universities through which the university worked to complete the infrastructure for information technology in the university, which included networks and the university’s website on the information network and electronic mail to Sebha University.

In mid-2013, after the Ministry of Higher Education amended the agreement signed with UNESCO until UNESCO assisted the Ministry in establishing the National Center for Excellence in Information Technology and that each individual university develops its own information system, with integration to be completed later.
