germanA team of professors from Germany visited MMUST from 7th-10th March 2018 for a familiarization tour, ahead of a planned project dubbed “Practice-Oriented University Education in Western Kenya (ProUniWeK)”. The project is one of the five in Kenya funded by the German Academic Exchange Services (DAAD) under the framework “Network Development and Qualification Measures based on the Model of the German Universities of Applied Sciences in Kenya”.

The team seeks to develop collaboration networks that will be used to enhance the understanding of Kenyan scholars about practical approaches to training employed by German Universities of Applied Sciences. The project will address the growing demand for experts with practice-oriented skills in the Kenyan labour market. 

The German experts from various fields met their counterparts in MMUST to discuss areas of collaboration. MMUST experts were drawn from the School of Agriculture, Veterinary Sciences and Technology (SAVET), School of Natural Sciences (SONAS), School of Engineering and Built Environment (SEBE), School of Public Health, Biomedical Sciences and Technology (SPHBST), and School of Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance (SDMHA). Some of the areas of collaborative interest included irrigation, renewable energy, telemedicine, optometry, 3D technologies, and modern communication technology transfer to farmers. 

The team leader, Prof. Dr. Dietmar Wikarski had once brought to MMUST an innovative water driven irrigation pump and initiated tripartite MoU with the University of Applied Sciences, Brandenburg, and Agro-Kenya NGO that supports farmers in Kakamega County. This was during his previous visit to SAVET in July 2017. Prof. Wikarski expressed the hope that the two-year project would culminate into a long-term program for establishment of a university of applied sciences in Kenya, based on the German model. Appreciating the collaboration, Prof. Joseph Rotich, the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration & Finance) lauded the multidisciplinary approach of the team. He stressed the importance of efficient utilization of renewable energy and employing modern technologies in medicine and agriculture.
