On the 8th day of November 2018, Ndejje University hosted a peer review team from the Inter-university Council of East Africa to support the self-assessment programme specific to the Bachelor of Science Civil Engineering in the faculty of Engineering.
What is the exercise about?
The Inter-University Council for East Africa (IUCEA) originally trained several quality assurance officers from higher education Institutions in East Africa, on programme self-assessment in the year 2016. The trained quality assurance officers were tasked to pick any programme for self-assessment within their institution. Ndejje University conducted a self-assessment for the BSc. Civil engineering using the technical expertise of the Dean, Lecturers, support staff representatives and one student representative from the civil Engineering program. The SAC was to write a self-assessment report and later submitted to the IUCEA. This report was submitted to IUCEA, and presented in Dar-es-Salaam in December 2017.
Who are doing it?
A team of selected experts physically visited the university on 8th and 9th November to verify the contents of the Self-Assessment Report for the BSc. Civil Engineering Programme. The Peer review team consisted of Eng. Dr. Patrick Kuloba from Kenya Industrial Research and Development Institute, Prof. Nurdin K.M. Mushule from University of Dar es Salaam, and Dr. Titus Bitek Watmon from Kyambogo University. The team was also accompanied by Dr Cyrus Ssebugenyi from NCHE as the committee secretary.
The team on Thursday 8th November 2018, made a courtesy call to the vice-Chancellor’s office, met members of Ndejje University Top management, and held discussions with staff from the Faculty of Engineering to review best practices for teaching of BSc. Engineering. The day was crowned with visiting the library e resources and computer lab at Kampala campus. The second day of the visit (Friday), concentration will be at the main campus to meet students of Civil Engineering and tour the teaching facilities and library.
How does the university Benefit?
The university benefits from the peer’s visit through increased visibility; the report of the peer reviewers will enable the university make improvements in the BSc. Engineering (Civil) program by benchmarking what is being done elsewhere, and in so doing continuously improve service delivery which could make it easier for the students in case of credit transfer across the East African region due the trust gained.
