Department of Materials Science & Engineering at Jimma University is an exceptionally research-oriented academic department with a fully international environment. The Department aims to become most advanced one in Africa in the forthcoming years.
As a role model for center of excellent in materials research, our main focus is on world-class research empowered by international collaborations.
Moving to New CampusA world class department needs a world class campus too. We are happy to announce that Department of Materials Science & Engineering is transferring to the new campus of Jimma University. Kito campus is devoted to engineering departments and completely surrounded with forest. The start-of-art modem building provides appropriate physical spaces for research labs. In addition, modern classrooms can assist in enhancing the quality of education.
The transfer is expected during December and January. During this period, the Department activities are mostly postponed, and we expect to arrange official inauguration (with international guests) by the end of January 2014.
