The aim of the jointly developed programme at Ashesi University is to provide young African talents with a top-level engineering education, empowering them to shape sustainable development in Africa.

Over the past year, ETH Zurich and Ashesi University teams have been working flat out to set up the curriculum, obtain the necessary accreditations, find funding and publicise the programme among students in Africa.

None of this would have been possible without the generous support of numerous industry and funding partners. On behalf of all beneficiaries, we express our sincere gratitude!
