The University of Botswana has been awarded a grant by the Royal Engineering Academy to carry out an Enriching Engineering Education Programme (EEEP). The primary purpose of the project is to foster the partnership between industry and university through a win-win situation of placing academics in industry and to produce robust engineers. The project shall take a holistic view on higher education while focusing on engineering. Through an improved and more practice-orientated academic education in engineering in the four countries of Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland, the skills demands of the local labour markets shall be met and a notable contribution to the economic development of these countries will be derived. Finally, a higher education network, including industry partners, in the Southern African countries will be established.
The following universities are partners in the EEEP project:
The following questionnaire is to solicit your support in providing adequate information and data on educational requirements in engineering programmes. Such knowledge will help our partner universities to design qualitative and international competitive curricula that will produce robust graduates to meet the high expectation of industry and also enhance the mobility of graduates. It will also give confidence to sponsors and other stakeholders. Express your opinions to help engineering academic capacity locally and in Southern African countries.
We appreciate your time for completing the questionnaire.
