The university students and staff showcased innovations such as was the Blind Aid, a device that can direct a blind person without the burden of having to hold a walking stick.

Felix  Jurugo, a Computer Engineering finalist student says this device helps notify the blind person of obstacles location even before they have reached them.

Another innovation was the Intelligator – a Hybrid Irrigation control system that uses several sensors, a micro-controller and other devices to monitor the garden so as to autonomously determine when it is appropriate to irrigate the farmland, thus reducing the farmer’s workload and increase yield potential.

The Conference brought together more than 300 top leaders from Academic institutions, Private Sectors, and public sectors from all Partners States of the EAC. The theme of the event was Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) as a Catalyst towards Achievement of East Africa Community Vision 2050.

It was organized by the Inter-university Council for East Africa (IUCEA) in collaboration with the East African Business Council (EABC), East African Development Bank (EADB) and the East African Science and Technology Commission (EASTECO).

 

The 5th graduation ceremony of Uganda Technology and Management University has been rescheduled to Friday, December 13, 2019. 

In an announcement made on Friday, UTAMU Academic Registrar, Mr. Mersian Tulyahebwa, said the graduation date was postponed in order to give students ample time to clear all graduation requirements. 

“We want to pull off a well organised graduation ceremony. We are appealing to students to clear all pending graduation requirements in time,” says Mr. Tulyahebwa. 

Undergraduate and postgraduate students will be awarded with degrees and diplomas in December. The ceremony is expected to be presided over by UTAMU Chancellor and former Vice President of Kenya, H.E. Hon. Dr. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka Kalonzo.

Tulyahebwa says more than 150 students are expected to graduate with Masters Degrees, Post-graduate Diplomas, Bachelor’s degrees and Undergraduate diplomas in various disciplines.

Established in 2013, UTAMU currently has a quality team of more than 600 alumni raising the UTAMU flag in various professional fields.

 

Several students and parents have different reasons as to why they choose to study or have their children study in a certain university, college or school. Some consider the study facilities (structures), courses offered, services, fees stricture among other reasons.

UTAMU is confident in the quality it offers its students.
