The management of Kampala International University (KIU) has agreed to transfer the Faculty of Engineering to it’s branch in Ishaka, Bushenyi district. This has been done with an aim of expanding the Western campus that has been housing medical courses for some good time.
According to the university Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Mouhamad Mpezamihingo, this year the University is pushing forward among others the expansion of the Western Campus facilities, a Centre of Excellence in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, State of the Art Auditorium and expansion of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
“The expansion of the Western campus program thus made the transfer of the engineering faculty inevitable since laboratories have been set up to provide a better study environment for the engineering students at KIU,” Prof Mohamad said.
KIU also aims at achieving one of it’s goals of improving access to qualitative education where the project that will comprise a blended Open and Long Distance Learning mode, the first of it’s kind at KIU will be launched this year.
This year 2020, the University will implement an upgraded and re-designed campus Wide Area Network (WAN) and data centre so as to improve network access and computing services to enhance teaching, learning, research and administration within the University.
