Students from the College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology are part of a team that is now a FINALIST for Wege Prize 2021—a global design competition. The two students, Paddy Nsubuga and Kikomeko Ibrahim are both pursuing their degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the College. They belong to a team Musana, which created a stove using solar power and water to fuel cooking, eliminating the need for wood fuel and helping reduce deforestation in Uganda.
In addition, their solution includes a model to buy or repair used stoves to reuse raw materials. The other members of the team include Nakibuuka Catherine, a student of Environmental Science at Makerere University, Nalwoga Martha, a student of Business Administration at Kyambogo University and Ruth Akulu who is persuing a Bachelor’s in Economics at Ndejje University.
We congratulate all the members of team Musana and wish them the best in the Wege Prize Final.
