Author(s): Mohammad Najim Wahedy

Abstract: All we know, that technology plays a vital role in every work environment. IT facilitates accelerates the process of working and increases the productivity in every place including universities and academic centers. Specially, the internet as a source of knowledge paved the way for academic staff in universities to communicate, research, browse for scientific papers, use digital library and it serves them as an information provider and connector to worldwide. In addition, providing computer labs and delivering IT training for students are prominent for an academic institution. Hence, existing of an IT center in academic campus is an essential requirement, that we cannot ignore it. Afghanistan as a third world countries need to complete its path of maturity for IT infrastructure, which is acceptable right now, and must be developed for the future. Currently, Afghanistan universities are poor in the viewpoint of IT infrastructure (Buildings) except few of them that have it, especially in major cities. Therefore, it’s a need for Afghanistan to establish basic and standard IT centers in coming years for all cities to meet the demands of time, students and staffs. So as a result, prior to construction we need to have a manual or at least a paper to start this mission. Hence, this article provided the basic and standard requirements, along with proposed a simple architectural layout and detailed accommodation for networking and duct system including raised floors and suspended ceiling for IT centers in the context of Afghanistan, hope this paper will be used as a guideline for engineering and construction of IT centers for the future and existing universities.
