Saint Daniel Comboni (1831-1881) was a holy priest who sacrificed his life for the good of Sudanese people in the XIX century and the first Catholic Bishop of Khartoum. He believed that Africa was to be regenerated through Africans. But this motto could just become a reality if those Africans were educated.
At the beginning of the XX century, his followers founded a Religious Institute made up of Priests and consecrated Brothers who arrived in Sudan to continue Comboni´s work. Education became their main commitment in the country. In 1929 they founded a school, which was called “Comboni College Khartoum (CCK)”. This institution formed thousands of students who would contribute to the development of the country.
In 1999 some parents of the primary section of Comboni College Khartoum asked the Comboni Priests and Brothers to develop a post-secondary section. This initiative gave place in 2001 to Comboni College of Science and Technology (CCST) as a separate institution from the Primary and the Secondary sections of Comboni College Khartoum.
Comboni College of Science and Technology (CCST), originally Comboni College for Computer Science, is a Sudanese private (non-governmental) academic institution approved by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research on 15.04.2001.
