Join Hands with ASEI


Industry is and will be key in achieving ASEI’s strategic vision especially in shaping the future of the workforce in STEM both in skills and innovation. We will collaborate with industry to identify innovative ways of improving STEM in Uganda and Africa.

[dtabs style=”style-2″][dtab title=”i) Mentorships and Internship Placements”]ASEI’s industry partners will support its immersion programs by absorbing students and offering them firsthand experience by working with them on projects and daily management.  They will also be paramount in offering mentorships to students on a variety of cultures within the STEM industry that inspire innovation in technology and management. This will be through different mentorship or careers events organised by ASEI from time to time.[/dtab][dtab title=”ii) Develop and refine projects through collaborative research”]Industry will work with ASEI and/or its partner research institutions to discover new methods and help refine existing technologies within its scope to improve efficiency, usability, scalability, affordability and social impact. The sector will also play a key role in aiding manufacture of several new technologies locally to uplift local capacity and access to the technologies.[/dtab][dtab title=”iii) Inform design of STEM Education programs.”]Industry is and will be key in informing our education programs or to ASEI’s education partners because its where the students go after their academic journey to practice their careers. Besides, it is industry that absorbs these students putting them in a pole position to give feedback on the nature of products universities and other institutions of learning release into the job market. We shall rely on their advice to inform design of current and future programs.[/dtab][/dtabs]


ASEI works with schools, technical institutions and universities to implement STEM Education projects that cultivate skills from learners. The students identify problems, and work collaboratively in teams to find solutions, iterate, test and launch where possible.

[dtabs style=”style-2″][dtab title=”i) The CODE Program”]The CODE program is one of the many STEM Education projects that ASEI plans to implement. This program introduces students to computer science at an early age through using code to develop websites, games and animations in HTML and Java. Further, the students integrate code with principles of physics, biology, chemistry and mathematics to develop physical projects using Arduino IDE.

The activities range from mentorships from academia and industry experts to exhibitions of potential real world applications of STEM. We work with schools and colleges to ensure students have this experience. Click here to inquire about our next event[/dtab][/dtabs]


ASEI is on the look for universities that can collaborate in both ensuring quality STEM education and be sources of valid research to inform its innovation initiatives in education, water, renewable energy and agriculture.

[dtabs style=”style-2″][dtab title=”i) Research and Technology Transfer Initiatives”]Universities both locally in Uganda and internationally are think and do tanks with a variety of knowledge and research findings from both the students and academia. ASEI’s vision of uplifting innovation and impact in Africa will be largely reliant on the commitment of research intensive universities globally. Universities will work collaboratively with ASEI to translate viable research within our strategy to a bigger community impact.

ASEI and university teams including academics and research students will work together on projects on different stages until they can be implemented to scale. ASEI will also play a big role in assisting universities or their hubs implement the new models or technologies in the context of the developing world.[/dtab][dtab title=”ii) Student Exchange Programs”]ASEI will build a strong foundation of innovation on knowledge sharing. The exchange programs require students and researchers to get involved in ASEI’s efforts through working with staff and volunteers during project development and implementation. Sharing knowledge from different geographies and time zones increases diversity in the design process and potentially increases the chances of project success.[/dtab][dtab title=”iii) Internships and Volunteers”]Universities will be a source of students that can take action in our different STEM programs to improve their innovation skills, employment readiness and be part of the ASEI team. They will assist ASEI identify volunteers who can contribute to different programs such as the schools code program, humanitarian projects and other social impact initiatives.[/dtab][/dtabs]


Development partners are key in our strategic vision because they work directly with communities that need our innovative solutions in education and technology.

[dtabs style=”style-2″][dtab title=”i) Collaborate with ASEI on skilling programs such as the CODE Program in Emergencies.”]With COVID-19’s ripple effects on the education sector especially in the global south, development partners and private sector players have to collaborate than ever before to ensure that students affected by the pandemic can continue to receive an even better education that can enlighten their skills and prepare them for the challenges of the 21st century beyond the pandemic. Programs such as CODE can be supported through Edtech and other feasible models to ensure that they reach to the world’s most vulnerable.[/dtab][dtab title=”ii) Supporting our WASH Initiatives in schools and health care facilities”]The pandemic has raised several questions on safe reopening of schools, and responsible WASH management will be key in ensuring students keep healthy without contracting diseases. You can collaborate on ASEI’s UV-C water treatment technology that will ensure safe affordable clean drinking water in schools and healthcare centers amidst the pandemic.[/dtab][/dtabs]
