A delegation from Shenyang Aerospace University, China on Tuesday January 14th, visited the College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology and interacted with the Principal, Assoc. Prof. Henry Alinaitwe and the Chair, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Dr Julius Butime.

The Chinese delegation comprised Mr Richard Chen, the Dean – International Education College and Mr Charles Lv, the Head of Admissions and Career Planning Office.
