Evolution of Vector Technology Institute
Vector Technology Institute was first registered by the University Council of Jamaica in June 1997. The Institute was the pioneer in delivering training to Computer Technicians in Jamaica when it introduced its Certificate Courses in 1992.
VTI now offers an Associate Degree in Computer Systems Technology, a Diploma in Computer Systems Technology and Diploma for Computer Technicians
Vector Design Limited (VDAS) was incorporated in 1983 as a computer service, sales and consulting company. During the 1980's VDAS responded to the demands of its corporate clients, offering training in Office Automation Software applications. With the expansion of the Personal Computer market, the demand for technical services in the industry grew, creating a corresponding need for trained individuals in these areas. VDAS began training Computer Technicians through short certificate courses, however, by 1993 the curriculum had expanded to a six-month diploma in Computer Maintenance and Trouble Shooting.
With the growth of the programme, a decision was taken to separate the training component from the general operations of computer service, sales and consulting. A new entity was created to which all functions of the Training Department was transferred. This new entity, Vector Technology Institute (VTI) evolved out of the training arm of Vector Design Limited. VTI was registered in 1997 as a tertiary institution with the University Council of Jamaica. As a division of Vector Design, VTI continues to benefit from VDAS's real-world experiences and technical resources.
Vector Technology is a registered tertiary institution certified by the University Council of Jamaica (UCJ). The College is also a member of the Jamaica Committee on Tertiary Education (JCTE). The Institute is an Authorized Cisco IT Academy, a VMWare IT Academy, a COMPTIA Academy. Our programmes are also approved by the Fiber Optic Asscociation and the Electronic Association Intl.
The vision of the institute is “Preparing Minds to be Innovative Thinkers in the Development of Society”
Through fusion of expert knowledge and education technology, develop students to become agents of change and proponents of innovation. Engender attitudes as productive citizens of high ethical and moral character who integrate seamlessly into the society, and become leaders in its development.
