Rwandas Prime Minister Anastase Murekezi today inaugurated a new Science and Technology Centre at the Adventist University of Central Africa (AUCA).
Located in Gishushu, the Centre has the capacity to accommodate up to 6,000 students.
Speaking at the inauguration, Prime Minister Murekezi said:
We are counting on skilled and competitive graduates, with a mindset of innovation and entrepreneurship, to seize new opportunities, in our rapidly growing economy.
It is fitting that this new campus will focus on science and technology. The building is not only a distinctive architectural contribution to Kigali’s skyline, but inside it also integrates the modern technologies, that young Rwandans must master to compete in the global knowledge economy.
AUCA was founded in 1978 but opened in 1984, and it remains one of the key higher learning institutions in the country.
