Two Students of Muni University pursuing Bachelor of Education, Ayo Polycarp and Wamboi Morine have received awards for best students’ research projects and have been invited for the 2019 world conference for undergraduate students slated for 23rd to 25th, May 2019 in Oldenburg University in Germany.
The programme is sponsored by Second World Congress on undergraduate Research based in Germany.
According to Mr. Polycarp Omara, Assistant Lecturer Foundations of Education Muni University, the call for applications was made known by Professor Scovia Namubiru of Uganda Management Institute who circulated it, he got the information and made it known to the Students and a number of them responded to the call out of which two succeeded and are already preparing their projects. One is dealing with testing of soils and one is testing the effect of metal on water quality and he believes all these are strong papers which will sell the University and Uganda at large.
Mr. Omara says he’s happy about the success of the Students and very grateful for the support the Lecturers have been giving to them because each one of them was supposed to present details to their supervisors who were willing and they helped the Students to make it to this level, he urged them to continue in the same spirit.
He adds that he is also happy with what the Management of Muni University has always done to help the Students and the Staff, exposing them not only within Uganda but worldwide. He encouraged other Students to try next time however rigorous the exercise may be.
“On the issue of online application, this is the way to go, the world has changed and is continuing to change, we need to embrace ICT after all that is what Muni University is established for and that is the way to go in the 21st century. I want to appreciate the Students once more for the zeal to continue learning and encourage everyone else to continue learning since learning takes place from birth to death, we need to take every moment as a learning moment” he concluded.
