Study Programmes




The main goal of study programmes of ESIMSAD project is to improve the career prospects of researchers and postgraduate students through enhanced academic mobility across five regional HEIs from Africa, aimed to increase the ability of students to become entrepreneurs in STEM. This goal will be addressed by training the future researchers and scientists of Africa at the forefront of research in multidisciplinary field of Materials Science (both MSc & PhD), Physical Chemistry (PhD), Inorganic Chemistry (PhD), Solar Energy physics (MSc) and Materials Electrochemistry & Energy Technologies (both MSc & PhD) which are under the thematic filed of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and Information Communication Technology (ICT). The training objective of the ESIMSAD project is also addressed to prepare Master and Doctorate students in order to carry out research in the most recent advancements of Electrochemical Science and Innovative Materials for Sustainable Africa Development (ESIMSAD).
