Civil Engineering problems in Africa are unique and require specific solutions. The current training modules are not well adapted to address the local problem. The problems range from environmental, transportation, structural, construction, and water conservation, among others. This program considers the unique requirements on the continent. It is intended to produce personnel with suitable qualification and/or professional skills who will be able to address specific fields of Civil Engineering by use of local resources, knowledge and innovations towards achievement of Sustainable Development Goals. The program is designed to help candidates develop the ability to pursue independent research, scholarly work and innovations that have practical applications.
In addition, a broad range of seminars will be organized by means of invited speakers, excursions to relevant places and projects, project and theme discussions, site and/or company visits, etc. Students are required to participate actively in the organised seminars.
The objectives of the program are:
- To enhance skills for effective and sustainable development and implementation of engineering systems.
- To broaden the career potential of individuals through training and research and innovation.
- To develop a broad, multi-disciplinary and integrative approach for solutions of engineering problems.
This program is designed to produce researchers, innovators, trainers and experts in the field of Civil Engineering for technological, social and economic transformation of Africa.
The objective of this program is to produce qualified researchers, innovators and trainers and experts in the field of Civil Engineering for social and economic transformation of Africa. The program intends to develop future leaders of the civil engineering profession by imparting complimentary skills in the area of business and entrepreneurship. By developing links with the industry, the program will facilitate a multi-disciplinary project oriented learning environment.
