The Higher Education Partnership sub-Saharan Africa programme was launched in 2016, following the Enriching Engineering Education programme.

Enriching Engineering Education, 2013-2015

This programme aimed to bring engineering curricula in universities in line with current industrial practice, and to improve teaching practices in engineering, through a structured partnership between universities and industry.

The University of Zimbabwe and the College of Engineering and Technology at the University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania were selected as ‘hub’ universities, and began the programme in the summer of 2013. Following academic and industry exchange placements, workshops were held to ensure the learning spread throughout ‘spoke’ universities in Uganda, Kenya, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia and elsewhere in Zimbabwe.

The programme was generously supported by Anglo American Group Foundation.
