Our Volunteers Teaching Both Diploma and New Bachelors Courses at Kyambogo This Month.

This week our Programme Manager, Jas Bilkhu, will be flying out to Uganda once again with a team of volunteers for the start of the latest six week semester training student biomedical engineers on the diploma course at Kyambogo University. This time, however, will also mark the start of our involvement in the new bachelor's degree course at Kyambogo, which will be taught alongside the old diploma course but in a brand new purpose built BME lab across the campus from the Electrical Engineering Faculty. This means that we will have six volunteers out in Uganda through October and November, our largest number in the field at any one time to date. This is an exciting new challenge, and our thanks go out to the volunteers who are each giving up two weeks of their time to deliver a module each. Exciting times indeed!
