On November 26, 2021, Makerere University School of Statistics and Planning received a consignment of ICT equipment worth $500,000 from the East African Community.
The purchase of the equipment was facilitated by funding from the World Bank to the East African Community.
The equipment was this morning received by Dr. JB Asiimwe, the HoD of Planning and Applied Statistics, Mr David Kisitu, the Systems Administrator, and Mr Frank Namugera from the Department of Planning and Applied Statistics.
The equipment includes 153 desktop computers, laptops, digital cameras, computer tables, power banks, UPS, cooling systems, security cameras, network accessories, and computer chairs among other things.
The equipment will go a long way in improving teaching and learning as the university moves to be a research-led institution.
