On 21February, the newly appointed German Ambassador to Tanzania and the East African Community (EAC), Mrs Regine Hess, visited CENIT@EA at the Nelson Mandela African Institution for Science and Technology on her first official trip to Arusha.
Amb. Hess joined a laboratory session on Embedded Systems that was taught by university lecturers from University of Applied Sciences Mannheim, which is part of the international academic consortium of CENIT@EA. The students of the Master in Embedded and Mobile Systems (EMoS) had then the chance to present some of the prototypes they are developing as part of their studies. Among them was a digital solution to optimize energy consumption of machines using embedded sensors to increase cost efficiency of companies.
At the end of the visit, the students of both cohorts had the chance to exchange about their experiences studying the EMoS programme and their ambitions to develop innovative digital solutions in agriculture, health and many more areas.
