Best Schools in Nigeria for Computer Science?

This post offers insights into the top universities and polytechnics in Nigeria renowned for their computer science programs, emphasizing factors such as institutional specialization, historical reputation, and academic resources. Additionally, it provides an extensive list of institutions categorized by federal, state, and private ownership, including universities and polytechnics, to cater to a wide range of preferences and academic pursuits.

I got a long letter from Agu Obinna. The guy has heard about me.

In his words,

I am reaching out to you with a request for guidance. I have heard that you possess a wealth of knowledge and expertise in various subjects, and I am particularly interested in your insights on the best schools in Nigeria for computer science.

If you're reading this, you're getting the answer free. Thank Obinna because he paid for it.

The third paragraph of his letter tasked me further.

If possible, I would be grateful if you could provide me with a comprehensive list of the top schools in Nigeria known for their computer science programs. Additionally, any additional information or insights you can offer about these institutions, such as their strengths, faculty expertise, industry collaborations, and alumni success stories, would be immensely valuable to me.

I may not be able to cover that in this post Obinna. When updated, I will be sure to get back to you.

To address the elephant in the room, let's talk about the, "Best Schools in Nigeria for Computer Science".

Best Universities in Nigeria for Computer Science

Nigeria has several esteemed institutions that offer excellent computer science programs. While the term "best" can be subjective and dependent on individual preferences, I can certainly provide you with a list of reputable institutions known for their strong computer science departments.

One clue that you should be mindful of is that, if a school specializes in a particular field, it's more likely to be better than any other university. For example, a university of Agriculture is expected to do better in its training than a non-Agriculture university that is offering the same course/training. As expected, there will be more available resources including specialized equipment and lecturers. 

Moreso, old universities, even if not specialized, are expected to be better at technical-based courses, like Computer Science/Engineering, than the new and relatively new ones. 

Having carefully chosen from our federal, state, and private universities, here are some of the top universities (polytechnics will follow) in Nigeria for computer science:
