The Education for Laser-based Manufacturing project is funded by the Intra-Africa Mobility Scheme of the Education Audio-visual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Commission. The project will capacitate partner institutions in teaching and research programmes related to Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering in order to develop the necessary expertise needed for economic development. It will also support the development of new laser-based manufacturing programmes that are being established and support existing ones with the intension to harmonize the laser-based manufacturing curricula across Africa and also align the curricula with industry needs.
The programme will in general offer training opportunities for partner academic staff and Post Graduate supervision in laser-based manufacturing as well as broadening educational offerings in Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering; Mechanical Engineering and Biomaterials/Biomedical Engineering.
ELbM is jointly implemented by four (4) African partner institutions, where selected students and staff will be able to engage in postgraduate studies, research, teaching or training.More information
