The Centre of Excellence for ICT in East Africa is proud to be a hub of female empowerment in the ICT sector. Since the inception of the centre and the Master Programme in Embedded and Mobile Systems we have welcomed female ICT experts from all over the East African Region to get their Master’s degree in Arusha at NM-AIST. At NM-AIST they meet female role models in the lecturers and the university researchers. This is why we celebrate the International Girls in ICT Day today.
