Poly staff return from Ghana

Two Poly staff members recently returned from Accra in Ghana where they represented the Poly at a conference on University-Business Partnerships convened by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

Josphat Mukabi, Lecturer in the Informatics Department, and Martha Namutuwa from the Cooperative Education Unit, shared their experiences in a high-level political dialogue event on the conversion of Polytechnics to Technical Universities. The event was attended by officials from Government, Ghanaian Polytechnics, German Universities of Applied Sciences, African partners of DAAD and the private sector.

Mukabi also attended a separate German- African network workshop where he made a presentation on the current status of a Data Science (Big Data Analytics) Tri-lateral Project in which the Poly’s Informatics Department, Flensburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (Kenya) are involved.

Namutuwa made a presentation on a ‘Voice of Business Project’ involving the Poly, Vaal University of Technology (South Africa) and Wismar University of Applied Sciences (Germany). The ‘Voice of Business’ Project focuses on developing an entrepreneurial leadership short course geared towards preparing students with employability competencies.

The two staff members said that the lessons they learnt during their visit will greatly contribute to the future curriculum review and development activities of the Poly.
