Prof. Eriabu Lugujjo, the Vice Chancellor of Ndejje University has been an academician for over thirty years. Prof. Lugujjo obtained a first class B.Sc degree in Mathematics and Physics at Makerere University. He did graduate studies leading to M.Sc and Ph.D degrees both in Electrical Engineering at California Institute of Technology, California U.S.A.
Prof. Lugujjo did postdoctoral work at Bell Labs specialising in Metal-Semiconductor systems using Ion channelling techniques.
He served first as a head of the Electrical Engineering Department and later as the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering at Makerere University were among the many things he had a big role in development of both undergraduate and graduate programmes in the department of Electrical Engineering and in the as faculty on the whole.
He also participated in formulating of UNDP/ UNESCO projects that sustained the Faculty during the turbulent time of late ‘70’s and early 80’s , and has represented Uganda in several Science and Technology meets at International level.
