UTAMU Showcases Innovations at 1st STI Conference

 

UTAMU took part in the 1st Science, Technology and Innovation Conference and the Academia-Public-Private-Partnership dialogue held from 23rd to 25th October 2019 at Munyonyo Speke Resort Hotel, Kampala, Uganda.

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).
