Busitema University to start textile engineering course

Jun '09
Busitema University in Busia district is to introduce a textile engineering degree course, the curriculum of which was authorized after a two-day regional meeting. To start this degree program the university has won a Millennium Science Initiative Grant of $1.25 million, informed the vice-chancellor, Prof. Mary Okwakol.

The program is scheduled to start in the academic year 2009-10, which begins in coming month of August. The program would train the human resources required for the textile industry in Uganda and the region, hoped Prof. Okwakol.

The two-day workshop attracted participants from Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and the Common Market for Central and Eastern Africa. Speaking at the closure of this workshop, Industry Minister Rev. Fr. Simon Lokodo said that the Government valued the regional approach of solving problems.

The Uganda National Council for Science and Technology had been created to coordinate the development of science and technology in the country, added Ms. Lokodo.

The activities of the Millennium Science Initiative Project are being managed by the council. This Project supports universities through competitive grants from World Bank and the Government.

Mr. Lodoko further added that though the country is endowed with agricultural and natural resources like cotton, but they are not being processed to attract best prices in the world market.

He further challenged the university to ensure that the proposed degree program should fulfill the expectations of the sector and it should produce graduates who will convert the lint into yarn and textile, which would be competitive in the international market.
