These degrees are entirely online and offered remotely by OPIT to students throughout the globe. Through these degrees, OPIT aims to provide its graduates with the tools they need to develop resilience and add genuine value to the organisations they work for across Africa.

Riccardo Ocleppo, the creator of Docsity, a student community with 20 million members and a marketing partner of more than 250 universities worldwide, and Prof. Francesco Profumo, the former dean of Politecnico di Torino, widely regarded as the best technology university in Italy, founded OPIT. By emphasizing the teaching of competencies (and not just theory), and preparing students to contribute value when they join or start running their own companies, the founders of the higher education institution set out to address the existing inefficiencies in the traditional system.

Since it is entirely online, OPIT offers top-notch, global education that is both flexible for students to study from any location and reasonably priced for everyone.

The Malta Further and Higher Education Authority (MFHEA) granted full EU certification to the OPIT’s BSc and MSc programmes. By combining a faculty with years of academic experience and knowledge of the major tech business, the approach is practical and hands-on. Therefore, students should anticipate gaining from both fundamental IT skill instruction and committed career mentoring.

Professor Profumo, OPIT co-founder who also serves as the Institution’s rector, said in a statement, “Companies require skilled individuals who can develop and implement innovative solutions to complex problems. From software engineering to data analysis and machine learning, a degree in Computer Science and AI equips graduates with the skills needed to thrive in this dynamic industry.”

“The starting point for OPIT is the awareness of the misalignment in the labor market, between what is taught by universities and what companies are looking for today. That so-called mismatch is generated by too much theory and too little practical approach“, he added.
