Engineering Week Objectives:
This is a partnership involving UNESCO, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, National Commission for Science, Technology and Innovation (NACOSTI), and the University of Nairobi. The specific objectives of the Africa Engineering week are namely:
Mr. David Giddings (centre) assembles the Rotary Fatigue Testing Machine, received in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (MME). Looking on is Prof. George O. Rading (left) from MME and Mr. J. Aduol the Principal Technologist MME.
The following Msc students in the Department of Civil and Construction Engineering successfully presented their thesis proposals in Transportation Engineering to their supervisor Prof. O.O. Mbeche and other invited guests drawn from the field of Engineering. Their theses have been recommended for oral defence subject to minor corrections.
The demonstrations carried out included the hardness and the impact tests. These tests are vital in their course unit of Dental Materials.
