Overhaul university curriculum

There are too many unnecessary additions to African engineering programs that do not add value. Other parts of the world have defined outcomes derived from the needs of the country. The university then sets goals along national aspirations. These are then cascaded to the department level where specific objectives define the curriculum.

More often than not where such objectives are set, the students finish their programs with a project that specifically deals with a real-world problem and offers flexibility to code, collaborate and interact with the real world as well as undertaking multidisciplinary courses from the humanities as a strategy to build the student’s soft skills.
