Rwanda, AfDB Partner for Science Training Project

    Rwanda and the African Development Bank launched a joint project to address the looming shortage of vocational, science and technology-based skills in the African country, the New Times reports. The USD9 million program will strengthen existing academic programs including several postgraduate degree programs currently offered at the National University of Rwanda. It will also support the design and development of a new department at the Kigali Institute of Science and Technology. The department will offer architecture and environment design courses to boost Rwanda’s human capital in those fields.
