The College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology recently won a USD6 million grant to open an Africa Center of Excellence in Materials Product Development and Nanotechnology (MAPRONANO ACE).

The Center was developed out of the need to strengthen research and training in the thematic areas of materials science and engineering, nanotechnology and nanomedicine in order to develop human resource capacity in applied science engineering disciplines for the development of the great lakes region. MAPRONANO ACE will also offer highly specialized short courses in welding technology, health safety engineering, Oil & gas, Monoclonal and Nanobodies generation, Bioinformatics & Next Generation sequencing techniques. Nanomedicine Program will be implemented in partnership with College of Health Sciences (MakCHS).

The center will be launched on November 13th. This was revealed during the Vice Chancellors media briefing on Monday October 30, 2017.
