  1. my department,my home,my fountain of knowledge.Thank you ver much for giving me a chance to be your student.It was an honor to be associated with great minds like you.May God bless you all.

  2. It saddens me that BEED class 2004-2009, does not representation here, not even one student was taken as a teaching assistant, does it mean they were so dull, that is unfair.
    But the list of the teaching staff is great, i miss the jokes from Prof Home & Prof Kaluli……. Amazing team

    • Duncan,
      Thanks for your complements and concern. We would like to emphasize that there are many dynamics that determines the intake of teaching assistant. Definitely, the year 2004 to 2009 had great student some who have advance career. If you were interest kindly keep applying and in touch with the Department in case an opportunity arises.
