About this programme
This Four (4) Academic year programme together with basic entrepreneurship courses and the necessary principles of design will equip our youth with the needed skills leading to self-employment to improve their economic environment.
This programme has been developed to also provide skill acquisition in the development of concepts, models and real/actual products. The items or products to be considered will yield themselves to artisanal manufacturing.
