The Principal College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology (CEDAT) who is also the Deputy Vice Chancellor in charge of Finance and Administration Prof. Henry Alinaitwe while welcoming the participants to CEDAT commended the funders, the Royal Academy of Engineering that have supported the college for over twelve years through staff and industry  exchanges, where staff at the College of Engineering would go to Industry and the staff from Industry would come to support the teaching of students.

He commended the stakeholders from the industry for absorbing the engineering graduates whom he said, were the main output of the College.  If the industry was not absorbing them by giving them jobs, the College would be rendered useless.

‘I want you to challenge us where you think there is need for improvement, please inform us. I also know we engage you in curriculum review please do not get tired, keep giving us feedback because this review is done every three to four years to enable us remain relevant to the needs of the Industry’, he said.
