The department has recently been furnished and equipped with modern laboratory equipment in the areas of power engineering, telecommunications, instrumentation, control and biomedical engineering. Most of the areas around the department have been provided with wireless internet access and students can gather in these areas and either study or have group discussions comfortably with the wireless internet and laptop power support.
The university also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Amalthea Trust Foundation, a UK based charity organization and since 2011, the foundation has supported the department with biomedical training equipment and providing experts from the UK who come and train the students pursuing biomedical engineering.
One of the key goals of the department is to develop innovative programs, so that our students are always at the leading edge. We utilize flexible teaching delivery methods such as lectures, tutorials, practicals and also utilize online learning using Moodle.
The department continues to offer world class, challenging and well balanced learning environment that has produced engineers that are employed by major Power, Telecommunication and ICT companies in Uganda and abroad.
